i personaly use MusicMatch jukebox
It works, for me, is nice and simple, and does the one thing that it should do good.

Musicmatch is my favourite as well.

Have been having a play around with Sonique the last week. Its a simple no-frills player that sounds pretty good

I would reccommend WinAmp3 if your PC is a 500Mhz with 128MB RAM or more, otherwise, WinAmp 2.81 is fine :-) Just cant do videos like WinAmp 3 can :D

winamp 2.81. unlike winamp3 (which is slowly getting there) it has heaps of plugins advailable so you can do other things.

My vote goes with the earlier winamp... does the trick, without too much use of resourses, winamp3 wont work at all well on my 450 meg/256RAM pentuim machine, where as 2.x is just fine

hummmmmm...... winamp3 or music match??

MusicMatch is free, although you can pay and upgrade to the version of MM which has the CD-burning features...

Personally, I think it's well worth it. It's a good app and having used both WinAmp, MusicMatch and a number of other mp3 players, MM comes out tops in my book.

Why not get both if you can't decide, then just uninstall the one you like the least. (This could cause the apps to fight with each other as to which one plays specific file types, but if you read the instructions, and set it up correctly, this should be minimised.)

Cheers and Happy New Year

Agreed, Download the Trial of MM and WinAmp3 only has a Full Download (Last time I checked) and check them both out. You can then pay for the full MM later if you really like it, but if you've got a CD-R/W then why not just use the features of the software that came with it if its Nero or Roxio? Both can import playlists AFAIK!?

hUuuuuuuuum, I choose MM. what is the latest version of MM? cause I think I got a trial of MM on ONe of my Imag mags and I want the latest version.

Just go to: http://www.musicmatch.com/

Download the basic version....... Its NOT a trial. If you want to pay, you get free Musicmatch radio (but there are plenty of sites where you can get the same stuff free anyway.

There is no reason why you can't download all the others and try them out. But you will probably find Musicmatch better than the rest
