Hey, what's the new, totally awesome and free media player the kids are all using these days? I thought it was Zoom media player, but now it turns out that it's no longer free.

For music, foobar2000 is tiny and works like a charm. For everything else, the answer is probably VLC Media Player.

Make fun of me if you must, but I'm still using Winamp.

Yeah, me too. Not sure why I'd want to change, but I'm open to it in case there's a good reason.

I consider VLC to be a much worse movie player than Media Player Classic.  I'd drop Winamp and switch to Foobar if I could get Outer Heaven to work in MPC.

I switched to Foobar2000 because Winamp wanted all of my memory.

Does foobar work with real player files?  Because I need something to read those fuckers for school and I refuse to download spyware.

Just search for a Real Player codec/extension thing; pretty sure VLC should have one. If you're on OSX, I am pretty sure Perian has it. And if you don't have Perian on OSX you're doing it wrong.

v2.95 here. oldversion.com, oh how I love you so.

P.S. Realalternative works pretty well if you absolutely have to read Real Player files.

I don't blame you, VLC has a lot of "quirks". I sometimes even turn to using Windows Media Player (*shudder*) for DVDs. VLC has pretty amazing file support, though, which is why I keep it my standard.

I keep VLC around for those kinky things I can't just drag-and-drop into MPC.  That comes up pretty much once every 300 times I masturbate.

For everything else... yeah.  I mean it's even the only thing I can get my TV Tuner to play through.

Seriously, is there a way to get Shoutcast (Outer Heaven, specifically) to work in Media Player Classic?  When I try it now, the program doesn't play anything, but the process runs in the background and my router lights blink like it's actively streaming, even when I close the window.

Does anybody have the secret bonus Magic: The Gathering wallpapers in 1280x960? I'm talking about the ones you had to complete jigsaw puzzles to get. They were for upcoming sets... now I can't access the puzzles anymore. All of the product pages don't work on the WotC site.

Hey, does anybody know where I can find a proxy? I'm not trying to bypass blocked sites at work; just covering my tracks around a guy I've been kind of a dick to in the past.

That seems... a little heavy duty. I didn't kill the guy's wife or anything, just called him some bad names on the internet. Thanks, though.

What's a good DVD-playing program I can get for free? I can't find any.

MPC trips over legitimate DVDs with bad copy protection but otherwise works okay.
