Need a WMP Substitute That Will Find my WAVs

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I like WMP but I often want to multi-task with it, e.g. listening to music, creating playists and ripping a CD all at once, and WMP doesn't handle all that multi-tasking very well.

 

I want another media player that can do the following:

  • find and display my WAVs
  • allow me to select a "field" of tracks as seen in the screen shot

I've tried the following media players but they didn't work out because:

  • Songbird won’t display my wavs
  • MediaGo shows my WAVs, but it won’t let me select a “field” of files as you saw in the WMP screen shot
  • MediaMonkey's UI is just not to my liking
  • WinAmp is too, well, complicated, and I want something that's easier to learn and use

 

 

I'd appreciate any recommndations for a media player, freeware or commercial.

Have you tried Foobar2000?

WMP can hit 2/3, and EAC will get you ripping (and potentially better than WMP) - would that work for your needs?

Actually, for that matter, WMP can hit 3/3, so I don't see what the problem is (just thinking about it, I regularly listen to music while ripping).

As far as mess of .wav files - any reason you can't transcode them into something a bit more, normal, like ALAC or WMA-L?

I downloaded Foobar2000.

 

It found my WAVs and FLACs.

 

This just may work!

 

I just have to learn and get used to Foobar.

 

Thanks. smily_headphones1.gif

Winamp is also really good if you want an interface that is a bit easier on the eyes. I switched from Foobar2000 to Winamp and I haven't looked back.

One of the best features of Foobar2000 is its customizability. You can have it set up just the way you want, if you spend the time.
