    VLC Media player is a great one for playing EVERY media file out there.

    Then there's the Zune Software, pretty basic media file player, but an AWESOME metro styled UI with an AWESOME Now Playing visualizer for music.

    And there is of course the future replacement for Zune for Windows 8, Xbox Music. But that's not done yet.

    VLC, I have already and is a super player.But I was looking for something that will also update my genre, artist ect, ect. like media player or winamp.

    Thanks

    I've used Media Monkey for years and it's been great for me.

    Hi there
    what do you find wrong with Winamp Pro -- works beautifully.

    There are others but would be interested why you don't like winamp. -- I even have it installed on an Android phone.

    cheers

    Hi Jimbo,

    I also love Winamp pro and I wanted to know if now that Win8 is around the corner, if there is a better player out there.
    Winamp continues to be a kick ass player.

    None of the non-MS products work with Zune Pass.

    That's a valid concern, but I don't know of many people with a Zune Pass..so I don't think it will be that much of an issue in these parts.
