    Winamp has worked fine for me when added masses of files. I could imagine how it would be a bit iffy for some at times though.

    Most likely operator error (or maybe Sony being their typical knobhead selves)
    Foobar will tag however you tell it to tag.
    In the english speaking windoze world, the pc music enthusiasts weapon of choice is generally foobar2000.
    There is a good reason for that - it's the best.
    You tell it what to do; not the other way around.

    (hint: the answer is not itunes lmao *^-^*)

    I know I'm reopening an old thread, but with newer versions of winamp it seems to no longer have the issues I dealt with before. However I do have an issue with it not responding for a couple minutes when I open it (also sometimes with song changes). I will be running some hdd tests to rule them out first but it seems a bit wierd other apps are not having this issue. At present playlist is less than 25000 songs for hdd with others on died. (Don't worry I keep my important documents, etc and as much of other backed up. Only some low importance items like music, movies, etc gets missed if there's not enough space).

    I wish I could help you there, I have since swapped from PC to Mac, which means I now use iTunes to manage my music. The only alternative I can recommend is giving Songbird or Foobar2k a go.

    Media monkey

    At first I thought the interface looked a bit weird but soon I realised it was because it had so many features! This program seems to be able to do everything I could possibly think of with my music collection. Fcking awesome

    I use Winamp pro with classicpro and essential add-on pack. It does frustrate me sometimes with it's playlist support and wifi sync problems to Android, but it's good none the less, and still better than anything else i've played with. Haven't tried media monkey lately, but I think Winamp still has more features. Customisable crossfade support ftw :thumbup:

    I don't really think of MediaMonkey as a player tho, even tho it does it really well. The strength is in the library management. Never really explored the different play back features much but it has a lot of extensions available.

    Foobar user here; manages my ~500 albums decently enough - sound quality to me is better than wmp too.

    How can the SQ be any different? It's not like there are different ways to decode MP3..

    You're assuming that the albums are mp3!

    Unlike h.264 video which requires decoders to be bit-exact, mp3 does not, nor any other audio decoder to my knowledge.

    Foobar can output to WASAPI, which bypasses the windows mixer, not sure what other players do this.

    iTunes. I simply cannot live with Genius playlists now. I like the layout and the way it works with lots of songs. I don't know why so many hate it?

    I use all sorts of plugins on my foobar - normaliser, etc. Does make the experience better with a large library!

    This was true two years ago, and is still true now.

    I always find it interesting how people can 'manage' to hear differences. I think they can hear their money being wasted :p
    Foobar2k + wasapi, why pay money?
