non the less... I've yet to try jRiver... not sure if I will e.e any one have any reason why it's WAY better than FooBar :O. I do like how clean my FooBar is btw

 

LOOK

 

JRMC has the advantage of playing video. Sound quality wise, it has no advantage whatsoever.

Nice, mine is uber simplistic.. I never sit there looking at it, so it doesn't really matter. Mine is strictly utilitarian.

Sometimes I break out an EQ on the bottom there, when I want to use it. But I don't really like how it looks. I wish I could color it blue.

[Hijack alert] What's a good all round player with Flac capability that lets you build play lists, play several albums/artists on shuffle, has good (enough) sound and is simple and clean.   I know Foobar will be a top answer, but I'd really like a "plug and play" player that I don't have to configure from scratch. 

 

I've been away from Foobar for a while, but I remember dumping it for Media Monkey because I grew tired of having to build it.  [/Hijack alert]

foobar

No, seriously foobar. I can upload my setup if you want it.

Have you tried Songbird?

 

It has a really nice and clean interface, and I've never had problems with any filetype on it.

 

I used to use it all the time, but I ended up ditching it for Winamp, since Winamp has the best visualizer. Also the Winapple skin looks nice on it(every singe other one is ugly imo).

I may take you up on that.   I liked that it was configurable, but hated having to configure EVERYTHING!!!

Really, there isn't anything that's as good as Foobar.

Unless you want decent library management. Which in that case, there really isn't anything as bad.

 

Foobar is only good if you actually use the extensions for it. For someone who wants to just play music normally with ease, it's a bad choice.

Which is why I use iTunes. I care about library management.

I'm sure that's true....but sometimes you just want to sit in a chair, not build it.  I seem to remember there was a site somewhere where you could download complete/semi complete packages.  izzatso?

Thanks!

I'll download it tonight and test drive it on my laptop prior to setting it up on the HTPC.

post #103 of 218

Wow...Foobar is WAY different than I remember.  

 

Edit to add:

A) I like the config Chris, Thanks!!!

B) I do all my library management up front. Everything in album folder within an artist folder.  I've always done it this way.  +- 20K songs.

Yes, import theme. Does it look like mine? If so, you did it right :)
