What is your favourie free Media Player?
When it comes to choosing Media Player of your choice everyone has a different say. Some might like the features, the other could be interface, the stability , the frequency of updates, one that's easy to work upon and plays almost everything out from its box. What do you think your favourite media player is, which includes one or more of these options of your choice.

Those who have voted for "Other" please mention your favourite in the thread :)

Mine is VLC Player, for its simplicity and ease of use.

I used PotPlayer too, and I like it, but what I feel is that PotPlayer is geared more towards techy users, and the tech savvy people can use it to its fullest.
Whereas VLC Player is so straight forward, anyone can use it, without diving into options to set things up.

I agree with Anupam. The only real issues I've had with VLC have all been skin related so although endorsed by them, not entirely their fault. I find "My Simple Skin" and "Dark Lounge" are the most stable on my system. If I feel the need to see a neat GUI on the screen I do use Spider for audio, otherwise VLC serves everything.

VLC, which can be as simple or complex as you want. I had the least issues with it. I also like it being multi-platform and open-source.

Well, I can't remember the last time I played a video, but I think I used a music player like Jaangle, or perhaps a photo editor like XNView. But I would look at media centric software if I played videos on my computer; my connection is just too slow for the time being.

iTunes (with QuickTime) is the default media player on almost every PC I see. iTunes and Windows Media Player are the media players that most people are looking to replace. So I can understand why it is not rated for the BF Music Player and BF Media Player reviews. But I'm surprised that it is not included in the poll here.
