What music player do you primarily use on your computer?

I use iTunes, but I'm interested in switching to Foobar. Does it have iPod/iPhone sync abilities? RSS Podcast automatic download abilities? What benefits (other than smaller footprint) does it have over iTunes?

I just use iTunes.

I don't want big, lots of features. I use it for nothing else other than as a Playlist for all my music, to listen to while on the computer. Got all my songs on it so I see no need to use any other player.

Winamp because I've never been into automatic media syncing or perfectly ID3 tagged music libraries.

I listen to game music which nobody on the internet seems to want to follow a naming standard for.

o rly?

As for myself; Winamp. That or any other music player that takes up low memory and has a loop feature because I always play music from games that doesn't suck over games with music that does suck.

Thx for the kind words, pal.

I miss WinAmp and all its cool skins. Zune does suck, but I am a slave to the Micro$oft.

Because nobody who rips video game music wants to follow a set standard, and because it takes a lot of my time to properly tag files, I don't like using music players that automatically try to group/sort your content based off the tag.

Nothing like loading a new rip into iTunes and finding out it's sorted under album □□□Ā□΂□□_□□'□□ in the genre of "Game VGM" and composed by "TEH_VGM_RIPPER69"
