    I am using Windows Media Player, and if I can avoid, I would not like to install WinAmp.

    Thanks, you wrote this message at the same I was writing mine re.winamp and windows media player.

    I was checking the installation of the codec you suggests but it only mentiones winamp... does it mean that I will have to install it then? Is there no other codec for wmp?

    Thanks in advance!

    alameda, do yourself a huge favor and ditch Windows media player... I have a pretty decent comp, but even then WMP is sluggish. It must be torturous on slow computers. :( Winamp can play pretty much anything. I definitely recommend it.

    ps: your name... are you an Elliott Smith fan? :eek: <3

    WMP was so shit, it kept fucking out. like all the time. iTUnes never does, and it's prettier

    I chose Alameda not because ES, but I am a fan of his music.

    I do use Itunes for my ipod, but didn't think I could use it for flacs, can I?
    As for winamp :eek: I'm embarrassed to recognise that, after all, I just found that I also had it installed on my computer.

    Anyhow, I'm not going to defend here media player, but let me just say that I have never found all those issues you have all described. But I do have a fast computer...
