Low Respurce Media Player

I tried several of the choices media players from some of the best tech sites ,found the KMPlayer way too complicated for my thirst at least. I was really disappointed with the VLC player , as it tag too slow and also it seems it is slightly intrusive as I have used the term it seems  and far more inferior to Windows Media Player. So if I use some other free are then it should be at least at par or beyond Windows Media Player.

For music, I found two, AIMP Classic 2.11 and Foobar, that are really low on resources compared to Windows Media player . . AIMP does not rip music as far as I could find, but Foobar does rip music.

Foobar is  a low resource equal of the Windows Media player. The only downside  is that its playlist and library tools are a lot less intuitive and user friendly than Windows Media player, Otherwise it looks pretty good as a Windows MP replacement. Foobar also converts audio files and has visualizations that open in a separate window. and aimp also converts audio files, tag editor, audio library and ability compress database a very usefull function, language support also, it also challenges winamp and windows media player , It is my favorite media player for the time being.

AIMP,  has a fantastic audio library system.A list of your top 100 songs played, and can award it star ratings of songs. It has a list of best songs, never played songs, and new files by week which I think has been phenomenal . It will search the entire drive specified and add new songs to the library, sorting them alphabetically by album, artist, genre, year, or file drive as WMP 11. It is unable to show all the pretty album pictures like WMP 11,but it rely on lowering sytem usages and that is the reason behind this . It does have ripping capability. In its utilities as an CD audio grabber.

As far as draw back it is little difficult to naigate at first but after you getting used to its GUI , it will be a far simpler process you have beeen ever to and it  will feel like after practice as if you are using like as remote.

As winamp began as a mp3 palyer but now plays almost everything uses a lot of system resources and may contain adware if you aren’t careful on the installation. Especially PCs older than 6 years tends  to be slowed down at the using of Winamp, as it consumed a lot of resources memory, which will be absolutely make me uncomfortable , so why cant I use WMP 11 instead which is built in. instead of winamp so my humble suggestion fo AIMP 2

aimp classic in one line can bed escribed as a great music player and a audio library combo.
