OK then, now I have voted.
I voted first in the "other" section because Mediamonkey Gold was not listed. My entire lossy library is in it, and it is what I use for 5 out of 6 DAPs that I own. If I want to listen to anything from the lossy library, I use it also. FLACs are kept in foobar, because I don't want them on my portable players.
Second, I voted for foobar2000. I use for its utilities menu (file integrity verifier, compare AccurateRip, fix VBR MP3 header, etc.) and its ReplayGain scanner and tagger mostly, and for listening to my FLACs as well.
Third, iTunes.....I have a Touch 4G, and being that I get my podcasts from iTunes (some are available nowhere else) I kinda have to have it there. If it wasn't for the podcasts (and the app store), I'd leave iTunes just sitting there, mostly unused.....there are other programs that can load music onto iPods, after all. For my limited use of it, iTunes is tolerable.....I don't buy any music there though.
Finally, Windows Media Player 12 with the Shark007 codec pack....I only use it for watching videos, and I don't use its library at all....I click on said videos in Windows Explorer to open them in WMP12 and watch them that way.
