    Media Player 12 seems really glitchy to me, and the Zune Library really only works for formats the Zune accepts... I don't even own a Zune anymore...

    Any suggestions?

    in my experience:

    best for vids: vlc, media player classic (combined community codecs)

    best for music: winamp with dfx plugin

    Please PLEASE dont recommend codec packs. Especially the K-Lite codec pack. Codec packs , this one in particular can cause tonnes of problems done the track

    VLC is THE player for all media files, but yeah doesnt have a library

    As long as you know what the hell you're doing, codec packs are a good thing. Just as long as you don't install part of it that might mess up or interfere with something else. Me, I just install a codec when I find myself with a format I can't use.

    I like Winamp 5 a lot more than what 2 had to offer. The only real problem I have is it's media tagging. Disturbed - Perfect Insanity is not the same as Gary_Glitter - Do You Wanna Tuch.

    I'm dead serious, that's what it came up with.

    VLC + K-Lite Full for vids

    foobar is music. i switched from winamp to foobar cuz it loads faster and the can easily switch between folder structure and album/artist.
