Best Alternative Music player for Windows – List

    Categories: Music

Tired of using Windows Media Player and the seemingly resource hungry Winamp. Personally I hate iTunes for some odd reason, I never figured out why. So did a little searching, tried out a few other alternative music players, checked their performance, etc. Now there is no one software that fits all, It all comes down to personal choice. My choice has been Foobar2000. Dont worry, other music players for windows have been listed at the end of this post for you to check out.

Foobar2000 is a lightweight, free audio player for Windows that supports multiple audio formats and replay gain. The program has a very minimalist look but is very easily customizable to suit personal preferences. It also supports plugins, tagging, keyboard shortcuts and a lot more. The download is quite small at only 3MB and installation is pretty quick as well. This is my personal choice, since I need a low resource usage music player that can work in the background while I am playing a game or other resouce intensive application.
