Daum PotPlayer is our current App Directory pick as the best video player for Windows, and it’s clear from the nominations that a good number of you agree with us. PotPlayer is lightweight, free and plays just about every file format, codec, media container and type of file with ease. In addition to broad format support, PotPlayer also gives you a wealth of features and controls to get your video playback looking just the way you want. It includes filters for noise reduction, deinterlacing, brightness, contrast and hue. You also get audio controls and lots of skins to customise the UI.
If you don’t want all of those features and settings, then PotPlayer might feel like overkill. However, that degree of power for the low price of absolutely free is very welcome. The software can remember where you left off when you stop watching a video, and if you have a naming convention for TV shows, it will even pick up the next episode when one is finished.

i just got a new laptop today so im back to windows.....i was getting kind of fried on linux...for what i use windows is fine.
anyway, with linux i was using rhythm box and i liked it....i have a lot of music and i can not decide what player i want to use...
i have vlc which i use for video so i guess i could use it for audio too.
i downloaded itunes but i copied over a few files that were flac and itunes didnt even pick them up. i thought they played flac but i guess not.
right now i am using foobar but have not decided if i like it.
windows media player is out.
anyone use media monkey? i heard that was good.
i downloaded a player earlier and i already forgot what it was called but every time i opened it it played this annoying 11 second jingle so thats gone...
i heard good things about winamp too...
which do you think is the best player? something that will play all audio files. i dont need to rip or convert. just play and organize
ease of use would be nice too
