Default Better media player then WMP?

Well I've been using Windows Media Player 11, and I just dont like the feel of it. It seems.. well not obsolete. Just, kinda clunky. Does anyone have a better media player for movies/music? Dont post DivX I hate that crap.

Some of the more popular ones that I know of are VLC, Winamp, and iTunes.

VLC is great for video, and Winamp is great for music. That's what I use.

yeah i agree wmp11 is a total bag of bones. are u stuck with wmp11 because of vista? i do know of a work around to get wmp10 installed on to vista if your interested. alternatively you could try media-monkey or as the others have said VLC for video and WinAMP or Itunes or if you want a media player that plays vid's and music then maybe realplayer (although realplayer does remind me some what of wmp11.

Realplayer has ads if I remember...doesn't it? And Winamp is wayyy better than iTunes...I'd only use iTunes if you use their music store or if you have an iPod.

Yep, the Bento skin the new version uses is great. I can't believe you haven't tried it. It has a wonderful dock option that allows it to sit for instance at the top of the monitor, and scrolls down as you put the mouse to it.
It also has hundreds if not thousands of plugins written for it
