It's hard to choose one. I use Media Player Classic - Home Cinema for videos and Winamp for audio.

PotPlayer added to the voting options and I'll add it to the site also just shortly ... everyone can also now change their vote if they want, handy for anyone who voted "other" and wants to vote for something I added instead :)

Hands down, VLC Media Player. Plays anything, and quickly too, with lots of useful options. Of course, that's for playing media you already have. I also like Spotify, since I can play any song I want.

Marko, please commit some fixes to poll:
1) Avidemux and VirtualDUB are not a mediaplayers, it's video editors.
2) Add Splash Lite, LightAlloy and Zoom Player Home Free.
3) iTunes is not a mediaplayer, but QuickTime is it.
4) SMplayer is an advanced GUI for commandline MPlayer.

VLC - its even better now and rarely need Media Player Classic as an alternative like before..
1by1 - ideal for playing MP3s

Yeh, I really need to take more time compiling these polls :) I've left iTunes in because it does allow playing of various media files and I'll add those other titles to our download base shortly - thanks for the heads up :good:

Yes, VLC is streets ahead of any other freeware media player, even any other media player that I'm familiar with. It's easy to install and use, is available for MacOSX, and is simply brilliant.

I have been using RealPlayer 11 for so long I can't remember when I started using the program. Actually I liked 10.5 Gold better, but 11 came with the video download tool. I love the pop up. The browser is pretty handy, too in RealPlayer...just have to add some Favorites. I love the mini window for watching video while surfing the net. That's a very cool feature. I am hoping someday someone will take the older versions of some of these programs that have been around for a long time and update them.

BTW...I also have MediaPlayer Classic, Winamp, Windows Media Player, DivX Plus, and InterVideo Win DVD, which I use for playing DVDs (love this one, but it wasn't freeware)...
