I use MPC HC (all built in codecs except AAC) + ffdshow audio decoder (AAC to AC3 decoding only) for video and foobar2000 for audio... Most lightweight and customizable setup i have found so far...


Current Audio: Gustard U12 > Gustard X12 > Gustard H10 / Matrix M-Stage / Schiit Lyr (Cyro'd Gold Lions) / Presonus Eris E4.5 Monitors
|| HE-400i w/ AlphaPads || Oppo PM-3 || Fostex TH-X00 || AKG K701 || HD 650 ||

Me too, MPC for all video and foobar2000 for music. I have no other media players installed on my computer.

Think you're getting good video quality with VLC? Think again.

There's NO alternative for WMP ... i haven't seen any other player who was made by coders with broken fingers and brain damage. So you should rephrase and ask for normal player

Winamp/foobar.

Foobar is 100% choise if you don't like windows audio decoding/equalizer. You can add plugin to send sound directly to "device".
Winamp is just fine music player, you can choose to use it just to open music files, or you can use it as media library.

itunes does media art as well, and you can get it to download media art for MP3s you've acquired elsewhere not just stuff bought from the itunes store.
