For those of you who still have actual MP3s on your PCs… What are y’all using for playback nowadays?
I have MediaMonkey as my “full library” player, and it does a great job, but its slow to start up. Plex is great for video, its UI kinda sucks for large music libraries.
I’m looking for something fast-loading and lean to use for cases where I’m just clicking an MP3 and I don’t want a 10-second lag before playback. I guess I could always reinstall WinAmp, but surely there are other alternatives nowadays?
Or has people finally embracing streaming killed interest in stand-alone players?
(Trivia: I once co-authored the book “How to Use Musicmatch Jukebox.” Then Yahoo bought Musicmatch and shut it down. Want to kill a technology? Get me to write about it!)
