Creating a System Restore Point first before installing a new software, and being careful about any third-party offers while installing freeware is recommended.

    You forgot COWON JetAudio Basic (it’s free) I have been using the paid version for years with NO troubles. It works great on Windows 7/8/8.1

    You forgot Windows Media Player. I’m using it everyday to play music, no problems. And because I’m on Vista it’s beautiful, gorgeous and cool too 🙂

    For me, Media Player Classic is the best player I’ve tried so far. MPC comes with the most complete codec pack, KLite. It supports all audio, video and image formats.

    If you’re looking for a fancy player, KLite is not for you. But if you want a fast and powerful player, look no further. I’ve registered all audio and video file types with KLite/MPC as well as animated GIFs and SWF files.

    quintessential and xmplay are great alternative. But i think it’s not mandatory to stop using Winamp.

    foobar 2000 is what i use now , it is highly customizable and very low on taking up pc usage. i highly recommend everyone to at least try foobar2000.

    Media Player Classic Home Cinema for video files and XMPlay for audio files. I ditched Winamp a long time ago when it started to get bloatware and heavy.


    which player supports all sound enhancing plug ins had at winamp ?

    Paid version… for mp3 player… basing its profits on a ‘pro’ version is what got Winamp into bankrupcy. Nobody wants to pay for an mp3 player in the XXI century.

    Winamp forever…. don´t have substitute…..

    AIMP, MusicBee, and VLC are all TERRIBLE. I’m dumbfounded as to how AIMP doesn’t play video files.
