Thanks for the update.

BTW, is it only me or does anyone else find the screenshot used extremely funny (the player's leg on the right. umm, seems a bit disproportionated at first , Sorry I have a weird sense of humor.)

I *think* there's another player standing just behind Joe Montana (#16), but the angle does make it look that way. (Disproportioned.) I didn't even notice it until I read that comment, though.

Tried this to play my music files and it does not seem to support playing files within subfolders.
Have a Our Music folder setup on network drive, that's mapped to drive letter.
Within this folder are many many subfolders, and some subfolders within those.
WMP on win7 plays them somewhat good, dies after playing a lot of songs.
WMP on win8 sucks trying to play same files, after maybe 6/7 songs the service dies bring the app down.

Is there a good Media player that can handle subfolders and a bloody BIG load of song files?

Also should be able to handle videos files the same way. Like to play random list of music videos when I am working.


It even has the ability that you can even listen your music anywhere in the world (with an internet connection).
Every now and then I try other music players to see if others improved, Winamp stays king with all the build in functionality
For video Potplayer seems one of the best at the moment, VLC has more codecs build in. But Potplayer uses less resources. VLC often uses an entire core for no apparent reason where I see Potplayer almost never go over 10% and usually use just a few % CPU even on 1080p videos. And I barely run into the lack of codecs.
And the behavior of opening files can me changed in the config. I ejoy that if I click 1 show of a series and it'll select all shows of that series in the folder (my downloads folder is a mess )

But I haven't found a program yet that does both just as properly. WMP is a decent inbetween though. Most others I've found to be quite resource intensive. And often while listening to music or watching videos the system is already on under some load
