For many people, simply playing music isn't enough. Fast + flexible library organization, proper meta-tagging, album art, and smart playlists are pretty much essential if you have thousands of songs to manage. Just as you'd buy a bookcase if you had hundreds of books lying around. And for the audiophiles, a music player without equalization or FLAC support is an abomination.

VLC plays FLAC and has an EQ (thought admittedly not as good as Foobar's). I have most of my collection on CD, so I have no problem popping it in, and just listening through VLC. Most audiophiles don't even touch software EQs.
Anyways, I agree Foobar is better, but there's nothing wrong with using a mixed media player if it supports your file.

I use media player classic with the k-lite media codec pack. Plays EVERYTHING and allows a huge amount of customisation with one install. Best choice by far.

For my movie collection I use Windows Media Center with Media Browser and the vanilla cover flow theme. Looks beautiful and very easy to search for films after using Media Center Master to fetch all the info for the films. Highly recommend it for anyone with a large film collection. Annoyed that Sky Player are pulling their Media Center plugin though.

For music I use plain old iTunes. Can't see what all the fuss about it is to be honest.

True about the software EQ. I realized that about half a second after I posted it.

But CDs are a thing of the past, in this age of MP3 players and smartphones. The only thing CDs are good for, in my opinion, is being ripped and stored on a hard drive. What if you want to listen to a mix of your favorite artists or albums? Burn a mix CD. But wait, tomorrow you'd like to add a few different songs. Better burn another CD. And so on and so forth. It just seems to me that for anyone with more than a passing interest in music, a fully-featured and dedicated audio player is a no-brainer.

i guess its best to assume that not everyone has some big music collection that someone may want or need some of those features, there are people that would rather pick a random book of the hundreds laying on the ground rather then having it organized in a bookcase.

in case of audiophiles then it might matter more to them then someone who isn't quite heavy into music, but in the end it comes down to the individual person to decided what they want, its just personal preference in which case you cant really say to them that using vlc or mpc for music is something so bad that they need to switch to a dedicated player.

people will use what they want to use, right or wrong just my opinion.

Virtual Dj for music
Traktor Dj when using the Traktor Scratch
Media Player Classic for movies
Vlc goes black with some movies then shows yuv overlay so I stopped using it, mpc plays them without that problems.
