    I was using Winamp but it won't work for me in Windows 10 , keeps crashing. What alternatives are there out there ?

    I like Foobar2000 (with WASAPI installed)

    I just downloaded that and I really like the sound quality, the only problem is I can;t figure out how to use the crossfade. What does WASAPI do exactly?

    MediaMonkey free Ed works great with W10
    then, all is about the design of the soft and if you feel ok with it, or not...

    I liked JRiver before I moved to Roon. Roon is $$$ and the setup is more complicated b/c you have to have a server, but I wouldn't give it up for anything...it's simply awesome.

    I'm using Foobar200 but does anyone know how to get the crossfade settings to work so one song leads into another with no silence between tracks I've tried every setting I can think of and it only works when I stop a track manually.

    File - Preferences - DSP Manager - add Skip Silence and Crossfader to active DSPs. You can make adjustments using the button above the active DSP list to configure each plug-in.

    Foobar2000 is powerful. If you want album art and bios consider controlling it with Muso for a small fee.

    I use MusicBee most often. It's a fairly full-featured yet free app that plays local and server music, internet radio, podcasts, and more. Displays album art, bios, and more.

    Some people use nothing but VLC for all their music and video.

    I know how to get to it and all that I just can't seem to get the settings right where I want them. I want there to be no silence in between tracks at all.

    I have MusicBee and VLC but I only use VLC for video, For now I'm going to stick with Foobar as I think it has the best sound quality.

    Agreed! It takes some time to master all the fooey components and preferences, but it's worth the effort.

    I use Winamp V5.5 - some prefer v2.95 because of the lower footprint.

    Foobar is a good choice. I use winamp because it supports Internet radio streaming right out of the box...er, usb drive..whatever.

    I love Winamp but it doesn't seem to work on Windows 10.
