What program do you use on your computer to listen to mp3s and video files? There is one program that I love so much because it has a small installation and I just love the skins. The player is called UltraPlayer, http://www.ultraplayer.com I am using the "Mojo" skin (reminds my of Austin Powers movies, haha). I also have Classic Media Player, Windows Media Play, DiVX, Real One Player, and Winamp installed, but I always seem to use UltraPlayer. It uses less memory and the size of the software is only 2 MB! It is so small over a dial up connection (I have dial up by the way). Here you see a screen shot of Ultra Player! Let's discuss which programs we use and which ones you think are good:) Pablo

I like Jetaudio. Did not any body tried it. It is very simple and free to use and i can say that it is the best software for playing any kind of audio video files.

I've never heard of that program, but I have been using Ultraplayer, VLC, WMP, Real Audio or the other programs listed on here. There are so many listed. Pablo

I tried JetAudio. It is very good but for some reason I always go back to WinAmp. I used to like Sonique player but I haven't used that one for a while.

I use Winamp when I listen to music and VLC Media Player to watch videos. VLC Media Player is very good as it can play almost any file. I don't think it can play RM files, though. I have Windows Media Player installed as well but it refuses to work for me.

Oh, what is this VLC Media Player? I will have to look for it on download.com. Is it free to download? Well, I found the Windows Classic Media Player can play just about anything even Real Media Player's files. I just don't use it too much becuase I cannot play a bunch of songs at once and that is what I like to do. A big positive + for you :) Pablo

I use WinAmp mostly. I also use Media Player classic and VLC player, which is very good because it plays a lot of different files. If a video file or audio file won't play in your player, the chances are that VLC player will play it.

vlc media player for video. coz it can play all sorts of files, otherwise i use windows media player which is pretty good looking and user friendly.. especially the function of it which minimises it to the toolbar.... For managing my ipod i use iTunes..

I use itunes for my music and windows media for my video. My arm is twisted behind my back to use Itunes because I have an Ipod but I wish I didn't have to use it. Itunes has some very interesting and useful features but it annoys me for some reason. I tend to stray away from windows media player for music because it doesn't play .mp4 files. I'll have a look at that ultraplayer though, because I've never seen it before.

I don't like iTunes or Windows Media Player as well, but I do have them installed because sometimes I have the mp4 files or other files that ultraplayer cannot play. Have a nice day. Pablo

Okay, I see, I usually use UltraPlayer for audio and a lot of video, but I will also use VLC, and many other players that people have been mentioning.

I use iTunes. This way I am able to maintain my library easily with the songs I like and update them on my iPod. For videos I generally use Windows Media Player.
