Default Alternative to WMA

On my family comp windows media player runs fine since it is relativly new.But on my system it hesitates so is there a lighter weight program that is also easy to use and has the same functions of wma.

Winamp is pretty lightweight compared to WMP. It uses less system resources, and therefore might work better on your computer.

I use winamp too. It has tons of plugins and great skins. Best multi media player I have seen (for free anyway)

I think musicmatch is the best. it is a resource hog, though.
