What music player for my music collection ?

Post#1 » Wed Sep 07, 2016 10:10 am

I've just made the jump from Vista Ultimate X64 to 10 Pro.

I really liked Media Player 11, it worked well, nice layout and the "recently added" playlist gave me a nice blogroll format for all my newly added music. Now I got version 12 and it's rubbish ! The playlist is not working, and the player itself is just nowhere near as nice !

I'm looking to use a different player, something that is good at handling large music collections and offers good file monitoring ? What I mean by this is that the programs music library has some form of "recently added" blogroll kind of menu ?

I'm open to checking out anything to be honest... :clap:

Thanks spanner that's what I've actually gone with. I have it as a portable application on my flash-drive and used to use it at college so I'm just setting it up how I like it to look and hopefully all will be good.

I was just trying the "Groove Music" player which seems nice but the CPU usage is all over the place.
