    Music Player on Computer

    Does anybody have any recommendations for a good music player on their computer to play their mp3's?

    My iTunes keeps on getting an error and won't load my music and I used to have Musicmatch Jukebox, but now that doesn't work because the company that runs it shut down.

    So, any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

    Re: Music Player on Computer

    I use MediaMonkey. Started with the free version. Upgraded to the gold version. I like it ... decent player ... very good at organizing all my music.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year oldís life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Re: Music Player on Computer

    I use Windows Media Player... I find that it monitors folders for changes WAY better than iTunes.

    Re: Music Player on Computer

    I've been through a lot of them and still don't have one I really like. MusicMatch was awesome until they sold to Yahoo. iTunes sucks. Winamp has gotten really bloated. I'm using Windows Media player now just because... well, just because it's already on my machine and I haven't found anything else I like.

    Re: Music Player on Computer

    Another vote for Mediamonkey. I use the gold version.
    The free version is ok though.

    Re: Music Player on Computer

    I really like winamp, it has a lot of cool plug-ins you can download but you can also strip it down to a very basic music player with ease. It is also really easy to create/edit playlists with your library. Mine is currently fairly basic with one cool plug in that automatically loads the full lyrics to the song that is currently playing.
