    I use iTunes innit...

    Nice and clear, easy to use, and has got a graphic eqaliser meaning you can alter the way it sounds e.g. boost the bass for mixes where it's a bit low, cut the treble of it's too high etc...

    Can you download it for free these days?

    errr iTunes 7 I think...

    Dunno really, this is a work computer so it was just on there when I got it :confused:

    Still got like 8 gig of mixes on it though - I've started making up some Cd's and giving them out to some old school heads I know who aint got computers... Can do that from iTunes too

    I'll stick to Winamp, crashes alot when deleting tracks from my Zen which pisses me off, but imo it's awesome, supports FLAC which is a bonus (FLAC-The Nine ftw), and is relatively quick, i use it with iZotope Ozone which is an amazing audio plug-in

    itunes!, i dunno why people diss it, it's a doddle when you have 20'000 tunes like me, there's probably a .flac codec for it somewhere.

    i just windows media player for my mp3's and VLC for videos,

    vlc is definately the best for videos, i havent found a file format that wont play on it yet, which is definately good when downloading films (which i do not do as it is illegal)
