Foobar for audio and Mediacoder for video.
I'd been using iTunes for audio, but tried out Foobar after seeing Greenhorn's post in another thread (and his great writeup on Techenclave). I LOVE it! Foobar and my Audigy2 NX together sound like heaven Thank you, Greenhorn!
Mediacoder is more of a conversion tool and it has only *very* basic playback capability. But having started with it a while back, I liked it well enough to keep using it, rather that install another bit of software.

Used to love Foobar but currently switched back to Winamp for Audio and TheKMPlayer for all video stuff,brilliant player for video files,plays almost everything and has a lot of customization options.

I hate the fact that I can't remove Windows Media Player from the system. Anyone knows how to do it?
I use Media Player Classic with K-Lite Codec for all videos.
Winamp for music.

Please ensure you have the Operating system CD when doing this. There are chances that the system might ask for it.

First I saw this thread's first page & had the same expression. But later the votes revealed the story that how much this rather unknown media player is loved by audiophiles. I just downloaded it (today but before reading this thread) and trying it now. Let's see.
Otherwise, it's WinAmp and VLC for me.

for video I use the Kantaris media player, which builds upon the VLC media player. Plays pretty much everything including mp4 and *.mov files.
For audio..its windows media player 11

You can try out VLC player for any format of video.
For Audio i think mplayer is quite good.

ok many ppl have voted for VLC and I am not different.
My question is what kind of equalizer settings you are using during playback.
It's very difficult to change equalizer settings for the every new songs.
So what can be usually used for desktop settings? I find soft rock , techo kind of suits almost 80% of the songs. What is your experience?
Also how about audio tags? When your collections goes above almost 10,000songs (and you don't want to delete single of the same )then you HAVE to TAG + CD cover all the files.
Who scores best for tagging? Which are the best sites for CD covers + other information for bollywood songs + Indian songs?

Have tried VLC, but I prefer GOM player better... at least for my needs. More easy to control brightness, contrast, pause, etc, etc. Interfacte is better too, methinks. Its not heavy on resources either.
However, the most important advantage of VLC is that it needs no external codecs and plays almost everything except perhaps Real Media files.

Media Player Classic + Combined Community Codec pack = all you'll ever need, trust me.
For those who don't want to install a codec pack:- VLC.
