Thumbs up I wanna new WMP

Hey, I recently switched over to Firefox because of all the bugs and the supposed tracking of IE. I heard that Windows Media Player tracks everything you play on it!?! I want to switch to a new player but I dont know which one is best. Im looking for something that acts and looks like WMP, just liek Firefox looks and acts like IE. Please post your favorite players
I like open source players the most, not because i edit it but because i know someone is making sure they dont junk it up.

I'm surprised noone mentioned the quality of the sound on WinAmp. One of the best sounding "free" players out there right now.

Nope. No spyware for Winamp.

You can choose to have WinAmp stat your usage and system, though, but that can be turned off.

Winamp is awsome...Not so sure I'm gelin' with the new version, but the older versions rocked!

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...

Newer versions support video.
Winamp includes thousands of free radiostations.
