    What do you recommend for a media player?

    Been using iTunes for awhile, since Im not a big fan of Windows Media Player.
    Now Im getting sick of iTunes' BS with the iPod support running in the background and QuickTime always being in my icon tray.
    I know i can disable it in MSCONFIG, but im just sick of it.
    Are there any programs/players that you can recommend that's very simple and clean?
    Was thinking of going back to Winamp.
    Old school stuff from 5years ago.
    Thanks.

    Personally, media player classic:

    Simple. Uses very little resources. Is totally adware and spyware free.. it will several kinds of media. I love it.

    back in the day when I was really into mp3's I used Sonique.

    Now I use whatever opens when I click on the file WMP,RP,QT mostly

    P.S. I-Tunes is a huge resource hog.

    For music I always use winamp I know its old school but I like it, for movies and video clips I will always go with my all time favorite VLC player it rocks.(and its free ware ) so no problem with money.

    I am also a fan of WinAmp. Will the mass of media player codecs available it still seems to be a good choice. I use flac as my compressed audio format of choice.
