Top Software To Play Your Music
Their are countless amount of different little softwares that you can download off of the web. What is the best? What do you use?
*By the way, these are in no order at ALL.
This is a great media player, and will play almost any file type, including videos that are downloaded from Youtube. VLC can even be used as a streaming media server, can play DVD’s, can be used as an audio decoder, and doesn’t require external, extra codecs to run. VLC can be completely personalized with customizable skins. Definitely worth looking into.
I have rarely used Winamp, but it is the MOST customizable media player I know of. I also know of multiple online radio stations using Winamp to broadcast. You can also get skins on this media player. In Winamp you can sync your iPod! Winamp is also available to switch languages from inside the client. This is a free version, but in my personal opinion, buying the premium is not needed at all.
XB Media Center is especially great if you want a nice clean, theater like look. You can watch movies through this media center, and I think you can also watch online shows. You can also watch NETFLIX on here as well. With XBMC you can also check out the latest weather and forecast. XBMC is fully customizable with skins and plugins
..and what I use,
MediaMonkey is an easy-to-use music manager and media jukebox for serious music collectors and iPod users. It catalogs your CDs, OGG, WMA, MPC, FLAC, APE, WAV and MP3 audio files. It looks up missing Album Art and track information via Freedb and the web, and includes an intelligent tag editor and an automated file and directory renamer to organize your music library. It includes a CD ripper, CD Burner, and audio converter for saving music, and manual or automated playlist editors for creating music mixes. Its player automatically adjusts volume levels so that you don’t have continually fiddle with the volume control and supports hundreds of Winamp plug-ins and visualizations; or if you prefer, it can use Winamp as the default player. It also includes portable audio device synchronization that allows you to quickly synch tracks and playlists with iPods and other portable audio devices.
