What are you guys using to play your audio files?


I have 160+ GB of MP3s and find Windows Media Center too cumbersome to use. I have been using good 'ol winamp but was wondering if there is something better out there that I don't know about.


Please discuss. Thanks.

I'm a longtime Quintessential Media Player fan, myself.

Ah, that's a good one. I had long forgot about QMP.


I tried the music browser plug-in and I am underwhelmed.


I must admit though that it is probably my fault as I have a crapload of MP3s that aren't labeled the best.


Any tips or programs that will help with relabeling?

+1 for Jriver media Center I have been using them since version 8


I can get music to play under music brower plug-in for MC7.It plays ok under Music. Something like this should not be that hard.


Try Jriver you wont be dissapointed

I use Squeezebox. Use it with Trackstat plug in and MusicIP.


The video solutions aren't my cup of tea since Xbox 360 won't play FLAC, PS3 won't play FLAC, Apple TV won't play FLAC.


Sonos is another good option. But no stats or music suggestion engine.


Alternatively use iTunes, iPod touch, airport express.



EDIT: You said you only have MP3s. Then I would use Apple TV. Very clean interface and very cheap. Squeezebox can be controlled with its controller or an iPod touch (iPeng) or any PC or any phone with a browser. But if you must have a TV attached and visuals then I'd say Apple TV is a good easy option.
