When you play mp3 OTR shows on your computer, what player do you use? Winamp, Microsoft player, Itunes ?

I've found that the Microsoft player will stream the files off the Internet if you have it set for the default player.

What's your favorite and why?

    VLC media player 0.8.6c
    It is a free cross-platform media player
    It supports a large number of multimedia formats, without the need for additional codecs
    It can also be used as a streaming server, with extended features (video on demand, on the fly transcoding, ...)

    VLC - the cross-platform media player and streaming server
    VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

    In my opinion, a must have!

I've tried that one. It's very good. Free too, I believe.

    99% of the time, I recommend freeware . . Open source if possible

    Why pay if you can get it for free . . .

I'm a Mac user, so I stick with QuickTime and iTunes.

I have been using the VLC media player for some time now, because it works so well. I also use it for any video I play at the computer.

I run VLC on Windows and Ubuntu Linux. I really like it.

I use Winamp on my laptop (XP) and TCPMP on my PDA (Windows Mobile).

Why Winamp? Because i've always used it since it was first released and all audio players for Windows are much the same.

Why TCPMP? Unlike windows programs, PDA applications vary widely. I've found TCPMP to be the closest to want I'm looking for. Only thing it does not do is bookmark files so I can return to any file and take up where i left off. iSilo has this feature for reading e-books and i find it great!!

Only run xterm's to connect to Linux, but can access all the filesystems via Samba so no worries. Besides, none of my Linux boxes have screen or keyboard Smile

Most of my listening is done on a 1gb Sansa MP3 Player at work, but when I do listen on my PC its VLC or occasionally Winamp.

Does anyone know of any media player software, Windows or Linux, which, given a number of series, would play 1 from series 1, 1 from series 2, etc., then another (different one) from series 1 and so forth? A big plus would be keeping track of which shows have already been played so one doesn't end up listening to the same files multiple times.

This would save me from having to write my own Python program to do this.

Have you tried Banshee or Amarok on Linux?

I believe that both Real Player and Windows media player can 'add' files to a play list to play them back in order as the listener wants.
