WMP for me since it supports both audio & video, though I must say Winamp was the simplest & best for me previously

foobar FTW! I use foobar with Media player classic for videos.

VLC very rarely if needed.

That is exactly why you want foobar to resample to 48k

the ssrc resampler for foobar is light years ahead of any onboard sound, even better than audigys

Itunes is really simple looking and yet is very user friendly.
But you might have to have separate computer to run
