    Foobar looks awesome. DarkEmperor must be one of those people who doesn't know how computers work.

    I use media player classic to play everything. To make that happen I installed the klite mega codec pack.

    I used to use winamp before they sold out to AOL.

    foobar2000 and AIMP3 ? audio/video files

    OK, so WinAmp is still my music player of choice and even a few video files. When I can't use WinAmp (or would rather try WMP), then WMP plays the usual windows files (wma, etc.), then I go to VLC for just about everything else. DivX files and 4 more are usually played with DivX but very rarely do I do that. I use KM player for a few video formats whenever the need pops up.

    I'm wondering if anyone has any opinions on the latest Foobar2000 program and AIMP3 (http://www.aimp2.us/aimp3-download.php). Do these players play certain files better than the others? Would it be worth it to install these with all the others I have installed so far? My WinXP computer is set and not adding anything to it for now and I do have Foobar on it but don't use it that much. I was wondering for my Win8.1 laptop. Also, I bumped this instead of starting a new one because there is a lot of interesting posts in here for my questions. Thank you.

    I used foobar for music and Media Player Classic (K-Lite Codec Pack) for video. No need for anything else.

    OK, so I'll install foobar2000. What about AIMP3? Any good reason to install this one?

    I was on Foobar for a long time but recently switched to Music Bee because I like the album art and image show that it does.

    Foobar2000 installed; actually, just AIMP2 and that should be it. I heard that AIMP3 has issues with sound and stuff. Any truth to this?

    Here's another vote for foobar2000. It's a great no-bullshit music player and it has some useful extensions; I frequently use the converter extension when I'm working (to convert FLAC masters to other formats, etc.)

    Foobar2000 can do CD ripping to any format so long as it has access to the relevant codec.

    Plus one for foobar, been using it for about a year now.

    If you're into programming, Processing is a really cool program. Very good for visual stuff, and very easy to learn and create with.

    Here's a few examples (need java):1- 2- 3
