    Morning all,

    I was wondering what you guys use to listen to music on your PCs ? Having some issues with Windows Media Player, and am looking for alternatives. Tried Winamp but didn't really get on with it, so was wondering what everyone else is using ?

    Cheers

    Stu

    For music play back I like Jet Audio. Its free and sounds allot better than windows media player. I did the pepsi challenge and havent gone back.

    http://www.jetaudio.com/

    It has a nice interface and is very easy to use. :)

    iTunes all the way. I used foobar on an old laptop which was running Win98, but didn't like it that much. I only use WMP for video files.

    Can't remember the exact name(and can't check as I'm at work) but I use one of the ones from Creative Labs, I think it's the Juke Box one, like I said though I can't remember the exact name.
