I don't need the library management or the extra power. And I'm not claiming that VLC player is better. Just suits my needs well. That's the point. If you don't have the ability to argue that A is better than B by providing evidence (and understanding both), then all you have is a personal opinion about what suits your needs, not a definitive argument.

Hows that for facts..

 

 

We should be very impressed with your ability to copy information out of other's posts and poorly paraphrase it:

Makes me wonder if you really understand what you are saying since you had to go find what others say to express an opinion. Do you have a properly bi-amped setup that needs that? rolleyes.gif

Really - No matter if I got it off the site.  I did say these are some features that I find useful - so yes I do. I have to get it from somewhere - that don't mean I haven't used it. 

 

No what - big shot.

And finally, you seemed to have become frustrated enough to have to resort to the lowest form of communication, cursing. Learn to be civil first.

Oh, and by all means do quote when I supposedly antagonized you. I'm curious.

The dude asked the question. I answered. In a opaque manner, sure. I then presented a fact. So there goes that defensive argument.

 

I never said anything about Foobar lacking ANY FROM OF MEDIA SUPPORT. I stated how J. River had x feature Foobar did not.

 

 

What I was referring to was on the side of the media network. It had the cool ZoneLink where you could play media content

in multiple locations such as DLNA devices and hardware zones.

 

Such a feature which was or is missing with Foobar. However that could have changed.

 

Your statement below after my post.

 

It took you that long to post a single feature that's available on foobar2000? Right.

 

Again, you misquote me. You continually mislead the conversation at hand.

Foobar has grown from the last time I visited.  However, J.Rivers library management is still Top notch.

Yeah, this. I came back to this thread with 41 new posts and not much actually said. We all pick different players for our own reasons, no reason to have a personal argument over it.

Media support? I'd advise you to go back and read again what was written. You talked about media network support, which was exactly was replied back.

You shouldn't have come to this thread with blanket claims of superiority of one player over the other if you didn't already know the facts in the first place. It's not that hard to understand.

JRMC does have nice library management. A valid alternative regarding library management (that doesn't require tweaking) is MediaMonkey.

Now we're bringing "other" programs in to compensate?

 

But you see - that's what I'm talking about.  The "tweaking" part.  It's not a out the box work as is program.  It requires some tweaking to get it where you want it to be.  This is where I found Foobar, VLC and MediaMonkey to fail at.

Any form of media support. Meaning ANY as in, including NETWORK.

 

I never said it was superior. I said it offered x feature that Foobar does not. How are you misunderstanding this? Misleading, Misquoting

What? Is that an attempt at trolling? You said JRMC has good library management, I agreed and provided an also valid program. What exactly are you getting at?

Media support as in format support? Ok. Do name such support then.
