Best Media Player...?

For everything after the recording stage: hardware/software and how you use it.

Given that so many people are recommending VLC as easy to use, I must give it a try, although I've now spent so much time configuring foobar2000 to my liking that I doubt that I will change over ;)

An important difference. The only thing I ever had to do with VLC is set the startup volume to a fixed level.

I'm all Apple these days so I'm an iTunes guy (my wife's computer is an iMac so that I didn't have to keep up with both OSX and Windoze). It annoys me the way they keep changing it (and makes lots of work 'cos my wife used iTunes for organising the music for here ballet school, and iPads/iPhones for playing it, every time they change something I have a few weeks of trying to make it work how she likes it).

Windows used to be as bad or worse and IME needed much more fettling to get it to play nice, at least with the fruit it all pretty much works out of the box...... Still drives me up the wall though :headbang:

Hey Sam, I think this is still on topic, but I believe iTunes is going away. I can recommend Go Button or SoundCue as iOS playback for productions, though they may be overkill for your wife’s needs.

VLC works well on a Mac :thumbup:

I am all Mac - though I have to keep an old PC running for the DAW which is PC only :madas:
