    Media players

    Well, I have some questions, Which media player do you use?
    i have a lot for different reasons. Which ones do you suggest?
    Divx-for its codex
    WMP- its.. just here
    winamp 3- the lama owns, and its a nice player, good for listening to streaming radio
    Quicktime- i always have problems with this player, but some videos require it, i'm not a very big fan of it
    itunes- i just got this one, its out for windows now, so i wanna try it
    so far its awesome!

    Zoom Player for just about every video format, DVDs to divx.
    VLC for VCDs and SVCDs because I never got Zoom Player to work with them.
    Quicktime for those times you need it.
    Winamp 3 for music.
    WMP to quickly listen to sound clips, usually modding sound clips.
    JO Guides & Tutorials
    Team Element - It's who you game with.

    I like the categorization options in itunes ("today...I feel like rock->metal"), but I can't use it as my music player when I'm booted into windows. Almost my entire collection is rips I've done, and I rip to Ogg Vorbis. There's a third-party hack/plugin to get itunes to play oggs, but it...stinks. It has to preload each file before playing it, so there's a 5-20 second dead space between each song. Come on apple, you're supposed to be the bastion of those who work differently. Where's the Ogg love?

    Divx, WMP, winamp and if it doesn't work I just convert the file to one that does using one of many little cheeky apps.

    divx isnt in the WMP codec pack last time i checked. But google will link to DivX5.02 codec which works great.
