I've been using MediaMonkey http://www.mediamonkey.com/ for a year or two. I used to just use WinAmp, but it became very bloated and all the add-ons etc left it crashing. I use windows 2000, so can't use Foobar.

MediaMonkey indulges my habit for making album art complete, and organises things reasonably well with good searching.

iTunes - it's hard to go by it when you're running a Mac / iPhone / iPods...
But if I was a Windows user, I'm sure I'd be singing a different tune.

I use Itunes but i'm not a big fan, just haven't really had time to check out my other options and it's easy to use with an ipod.

I use winamp on my PC predominantly as I just load individual tracks and/or album on an adhoc basis or stream music. I hate having my entire collection loaded hence I don't use iTunes or the likes.

What do people use to play flacs etc on Macs? I just recently got a MBP and I'm using clementine http://code.google.com/p/clementine-player/ for the time being. Again I don't want to load entire collections of music

Foobar (PC) and MediaPortal (HTPC) as both support ASIO output.

I also use itune for managing my iphone and ipods.

Foobar is getting a bit bloated recently. Since going to the 1.x series, I have often seen over 300 megs being used on my XP machine where I can actually see the VM allocation, and searches of the library are a lot slower than the older ones.

May be my library expanding, but 300 megs is a hell of a lot regardless.
