Hi all,
Hope someone can help me with this one. I seem to be running 3 media players at the same time, and dont know which one i should use as my default.
Let me simplify........
(1) I have audigy zx soundcard installed, so also have the creative player as part of the package.
(2) Have windows media player 10 installed and think this is my default (think ?)
(3) i have purchased winamp pro (plays m4a files), and now have this installed.

I have uninstalled nero media player which came with the rw drive as this was just complicating things further.
So , why 3 players. 1, i like the ease of use of media player 10, especially for ripping and burning.
2, I need the winamp pro , cos m4a files are becoming more popular on limewire and nothing else plays them.
3, i like the creative set up the most, but cant rip cds,and it dont play m4a files either.
I have 16 gigs of music in my music folder, and each time i play a certain track, a different player will pop onto the screen.
There must be an easier way to configure all this and maybe get the best of all players rolled into one, surely ??

Get K-lite Mega Codec Pack or one of the other popular codec packs.
Then, u can use only one media player for all u r media needs.
Dont for get to change the file associations to ur selected media player.
