I still use Winamp. Somehow feel it sounds better than other players. Also its media library works for me well.

Personal preference, I think. Actually, never really felt the need to ditch Winamp since it does it job well and I have grown up using it for the past 10 years. Habit, I guess.

I have to agree on this one. Everyone has his own personal choice and only something big can change that. I am using Mediamonkey for like 2 years so I am used to its shortcuts and all that and if I have to switch to other then I need a good reason for that.

don't u think vlc can play almost all formats... It rocks@@
Don't you think that MPC with Klite mega codec pack can also play any format. But yes VLC is very good. :)

Yeah, I also use both and as far as video is concerned, never needed to look to other players. BTW, I have found WMP as notorious in playing videos.

^^ Just stick to whatever you are using bro because I know what are you using. :))
They are the best and believe me you won't find anything better than those. About your Music player can't say but for videos you can't find better. In music player everyone uses something different some like all the features like me and some just want it completely light which just plays your music files but in videos department most people have one requirement that player should play files flawlessly, support all subtitle files, have a option to increase or decrease the speed of subtitle and video. Mostly basic features thats why the simplest of the players wins in this category while in music department there are a lot of winners and losers.

VLC for video files (Windows and Xubuntu) and 1by1 for music files (Windows). Yarock for audio files in Xubuntu.

In the zone
Jriver Media Center & Foobar for audio, prefer the 1st one. Change output to WASAPI or ASIO.
Media Player Classic Home Cinema for video.

Primarily iTunes as I need it for downloading apps for my iPod. VLC comes in handy when iTunes doesn't support the file.

Wasapi greatly improves sound quality.

For iPod related stuff iTunes is fine.
But for other purposes, I suggest you to use other software.
Winamp does a great job for most people. Video = VLC and nothing else.
