Hi, I'm new to the mp3 player world and I'm trying to find the right media player for my computer (that's not iTunes). I've thought about Real or WinAmp, but I'm not sure how well they do with respect to trying to sync to an mp3 player (i.e., does it do a good job compressing music and stuff like that). I also want a player that can find duplicate tracks and eliminate them from the library. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

What is wrong with windows media player? When ripping music from a CD you can save it as low as low as 48kbps in wma and 128kbps in mp3. And I have found that when copying music from a CD it will not copy ones that it already has. Is there any reason that you or any one else don't like it?

I was just wondering if there was something better. If you look at my other post (which no one has responded to yet), http://www.geekstogo...lem-t42295.html, there is a problem which is preventing me frm using the Media Player to my fullest extent. So, I was just thinking that there might be another, better player. Is there?

Hi,

I highly recommend foobar2000, it is an amazing media player, and can play basically anything.

It's an audio player, but it's possible it has a plugin for video. I don't know for sure. The question didn't say anything about video though...

Yes, it usually does, but the poster only mentions playing audio files, therefore I assumed it was only for audio files and not for video. :tazz:

I always have to put a plug-in for my favorite open source multimedia player, Media Player Classic! Plays nearly every file I have thrown at it and plays DVD's to boot with a nice light GUI with small memory foot print.

Check it out at:

Cheers,
