For me I use iTunes.
I use window media player. i don't use it organize my music but i use it to play.
I listen with winamp, organize manually using windows explorer
iTunes. I don't listen that much, so it works well.
I use iTunes since I have an iPod, plus I think it works better than Windows Media Player
I use Winamp since it works with all media devices
Windows Media Player I don't like to install too many applications to slow down performance
I could use Zune but it uses 10 times as much memory as foobar2000. I mean, I just want something to play music in the background. 13K memory with foobar looks like a sweet deal.
Installing software dont slow the comp down is the nasty Memory Resident Programs that do
Tack another Winamp/filesystem name onto the list.
I may be a bit weird, though -- I don't have any "songs" in my collection; I deal exclusively with complete albums. (Sure, there are "songs" on albums, but the folder hierarchy is pretty obvious with albums as opposed to loose tunage.) And I only have a handful of MP3s -- whenever there's a choice, or whenever I'm transcoding my own albums, I use FLAC (both on my portable player and on computers). I can hear the difference between a VBR or 320Mbps MP3 and a FLAC, but that probably has a lot to do with the kind of music I tend to listen to (baroque, small combo jazz and the sort of rock and electronica that make a lot of use of spatial effects -- think Pink Floyd and Enigma). Psychoacoustic compression doesn't quite get the nuance of spatiality right.
Winamp makes it easy to work with both my oraganisational style and my preferred file format; I'm sure it would be a bear to work with if I had a few tens of thousands of unrelated tracks to deal with.
I don't use anything but Folders in Folders.
I have a RCA mp3 and I just convert Youtube videos/music to mp3 and transfer them to my mp3. easy as pie
there is an opensource downloader that can directly download Youtube videos in formats and quality you like. FLV, MP4 , MP3, Webm.......
no need to convert.
There is a YouTube ToS that says that's illegal: http://www.youtube.com/static?gl=US&template=terms
iTunes, mostly because its what comes with OS X but also because it syncs all the stuff I need with my iPhone
ya...For me Itune the best.....
The only program you'd ever need, since it does everything.
Separate names with a comma.
