Well there's no poll, but I would vote for Media Player Classic because of its ease of use and its compatibility with EVERYTHING.

I use winamp for music then VLC media player for movies.

I like windows media player 10 more but when I went to install windows media player 11 it screwed everything up so now I cant use it.

Why no multiple choice?

I use Windows Media Player 11 for music and most videos, Intervideo WinDVD for movies, Real Alternative (RealPlayer SUCKS!) for RealMedia and VLC for all those odds and ends that won't work with anything else.

Windows Media is perfect for what I do. I hate Real Player. Too bulky for my taste.

Word. RealPlayer can kiss my butt. That's why I use Real Alternative if I don't feel like converting things.

I'm gonna virtually slap whoever votes for RealPlayer.
