    A torrent client to play music is moronic, that is like playing music through limewire/frostwire/bearshare...


    I use Foobar2000

    WinAmp. I've tried foobar2000 and, while really cool and customizable, I found it too hard to work with. I guess I'm too spoilt by WinAmp [​IMG]

    I suggest you download a skin for it maybe? Foobar2000 is extremely lightweight compared to winamp. And it does not crash when trying to load 20 gigs of music at the same time (Well really 200 gigs but yea)

    a lot of the time i have a large collection of music that i still want to seed for a few more weeks.
    since i have a torrent program open all the time anyway it's easy to sometimes just play it from there.

    and yeah i use foobar too.

    You're crazy. The only reason record companies remotely tolerate such a thing is the horrible sound quality of Youtube. You're really getting less than half the substance of a piece of music by listening to it on Youtube. [​IMG]

    true but youtube isn't about quality, it's about convenience and speed.

    Well, I guess, but I'd really only use it for sampling and not for listening.

    Torrents are too risky for music - I usually just search for direct HTTP downloads on Google, which works for me most of the time.

    Foobar is the only player for me. And these days you can customize it to look quite handsome too [​IMG]!
