    Default some good mp3 playing software

    hey all,

    I'm after an mp3 player with a customizable playlist and general buttons (play, stop, next track etc). Something similar to Winamp but for a computer at the lower end of the spectrum...

    any suggestions would be sweet

    thankies

    doesn't MS Windows Media PLayer do that? or try MD (Media Detonator) i think i got it from tucows or somewhere like that. but it had a trojan in it a while ago, so be cautioned.

    doze? linux?
    If it's doze, i'd go with winamp.... it even runs OK on my slug, but you will probably need an older version as the newer ones seem a little too slick and demanding. winamp 3 proved a waiste of time on my 450meg machine. I have some older versions here if you need them.

    There's not much lighter than Winamp (lite install) ... Windows Media Player et al, are system hogs...

    Lo.

    Another vote for Winamp. If you get either version except the lite version, it will also play files encoded using the superior Ogg Vorbis format.

    There is WinPlay3 which I used on my 486. Its very lightweight, but I think its playlist wasn't great.

    Hi...

    Try "Whisset' (From www.webattack.com), which loads quickly, and you can create a playlist via two tables. Skins can also be downloaded...

    For a player and multi-titled playlist program (ie. by Artist, Year, A-Z' s, Genre, Mood type, conversions to WMA, WAV, Database access, etc..), and can add Winamp and/or skins, try Songs-DB also from webattack. I use this and is pretty good...even for the basic version...

    Cheers..

    There's some stuff called SoriTong
    I got it to work on a 486DX50Mhz.
    Quality wasnt the best.. It was running Win98SE with 24MB RAM.
    Anything less and you'll have troubles getting MP3's decoded in time.

    Anyways, do a search on google for it. It's origionally in some aisian language, but it translates and works fine for me on the older m/c's!

    You can beat WinAmp 2.81 if you've got a Pentium m/c, otherwise, It's too much of a dog...

    WinAmp 3, You'll need at least a 500Mhz with 64MB RAM if you're not running a NT based system and you plan to be playing ONLY MP3's and nothing else. WinAmp3 is good for playing Video's also, but you'd wanna go higher and have a 733Mhz with 128MB RAM really....

    So, Check out SoriTong and let me know what you think. It's skinnable too!

    Cheers
