Agreed. I too have used Winamp ever since... I guess I've just gotten used to it too much. It does everything I want it to. I've tried others, but I've always come back to it. Sure, it might use more resources than fb2k, for example, and back in the day that was a big deal, but on today's PC's it's no big deal.

Thanks guys,Foobar is new to me,always was with winamp but no more

foobar actually sounds better than winamp going through my kef speakers

Winamp needs a complete re write

I agree: Using modern Windows APIs. The whole styling/theme engine looks horrid. I prefer Foobar2000 for it's use of the native windows themes. Most if not all of the WinAmp themes look ugly as hell and out-of-place. Some of the themes on the Winamp site I used to use back on Windows 98!

Why?

Really? It's been bloated since Winamp 3 + Winamp 2 (aka Winamp 5), it's time for a rewrite. But that can be said about a lot of software these days!

i dumped WinAMP a while back for Foobar2000

And I can assure you, that did the right thing. I also started using fb2k instead of WinAmp, because it used to take so much resources just to play music.

Yeah, but it's also really convenient for converting audio formats like FLAC to mp3/m4a/mpc/ogg which works really well once you setup the proper encoders (i.e. LAME v3.99.5 / Nero's AAC Encoder v1.5.4.0 / AoTuv OGG / Musepack etc) etc.

so Foobar2000 is the best all around music player out there and don't have any bloat either. sure, it's interface is nothing fancy but it's simple and gets the job done and i like how you can configure the default interface to show the audio format it's in along with bitrate of the said files etc and you can even install a ABX plugin for testing two audio files against each other which helps determine the bitrate in which the audio goes transparent to you basically in comparison to the original flac file.
