    hi all

    after updating media player to day i was very displeased and unimpressed as media player imo is becoming bloated and I'm afraid it just isn't cutting the mustard anymore its bloated it keeps trying to connect to the net with out my permission it has only a limited number of codacs so there for it cant play media like mov or avi i don't like the interface plus its now rigged for xp which is no good for me as I'm on 98 se etc

    so what i need is a fast lite easy to use no frills crap ware free media player that can play any audio or video format and is easily updated with new codacs if i doesn't have the necessary one to play a particular video/audio

    so far how ever my search have come up empty so thats why i have come here so see if anyone knows of a media player that would be suitable as i have tried a myriad of other media players but haven't found anything suitable

    suggestions anyone ??

    Hmm I really don't have any particularly good advice but www.oldversion.com has old realplayers and things like that; of course if you update them they become the same crap as the new spying ones.. But perhaps you would find somehing of interest over there.
