    I just tried Quintessential Player ....Awesome stuff.
    Light on resources.
    Great sound quality.
    Customizable.
    Loads of skins and plug-ins to enhance your experience.

    abhi_mittal,
    Sorry to say, but you forgot NONE. I don't use any media player.
    So I couldn't vote and I feel discriminated. :D :D :D

    I use MusicMatch for audio files and to play CDs, etc., and Windows Media Player for video files, etc. I'm pretty pleased using these two players for these two purposes.....

    Jetaudio is definitely a good program....but its not suitable for machines with less RAM.
    I use quintessential player....its light and it rocks!

    You have it, it plays it. (Its that easy)

    All DIVX, VOB's (with subtitles :) "MPEG EVERYTHING" MP3
    ASF,ASX,AVI,CDA,DAT,M2V,M2P,M3U,MKV,OGG,OGM,WAV,WMV,MP4
    If its not listed here, you can add it ;)

    Did I miss anything?
    Oh yes... Screen cap & with pro version, Vid cap.
    Video format sizeing, zooms, stop vid cap frame, etc.
    Nice format with hundreds of user made skins.

    NOT a shabby player even if it is FREE!

    You will never go back to the "It plays this but not that" player!

    Enjoy!

    Media Player Classic (MPC) for video (avi, ogm, mkv, real (I finally got rid of RealPlayer...), quicktime (...and I finally got rid of QuickTime player ^^), wmv, vob, dvd, m2v, avs....) + native subtitles support (srt, ass, ssa....) + native "shaders" support, pan/scan, zoom.....
    Foobar 2000 (fb2k) for audio (wav, mp3, mpc, ogg, flac, ape, wv, mid, it, xm, s3m, mod, mka, cue.....) + ReplayGain support, built-in converter (w/ hydrogenaudio presets)...
    I guess I don't need anything else.
    Watching DVD? there will never be ANY software player as comfortable as my sofa+dvd player+TV ;)

    Try www.corecodec.com There you can get the core media player it takes about 28 mb of ram (I'm running it right now) slightly more when playing files It plays every type format I've ever seen. It's free and if you make a $10 donation you get the premium version which Plays dvd's as well. You can play mp4 ogg ogm and almost 40 other file types some I've never encountered It is (in my opinion not that any of yours are bad) the best media player.

    I like a combination of players. Jet is nice and I like that it will record, unlike many other players. The free version of Jet is very nice too.

    WinAmp is still something I use too.

    For streaming audio I really like Screamer radio, it will stream and record whatever it streams in one light running package. Simple, but very effective for my needs. Just put your URL in and your good to go, or use the presets. I have my own stations that aren't in the preset list though, so I use those.

    I like to record stuff, so I usually go for media players that have the ability to record stuff, as well as play. ;)
