I'm just fed up with WMP and have decided i need a new one. I have about 18GB of music so i'd prefer one with a good library. I would use iTunes but i have so many WMAs i worked out it'd take 3 solid days for itunes to convert them all. It must support/be able to rip to mp3, wma, m4a and other formats would be nice too. Im not bothered about video playback. So, what do people recommend?

foobar2000 (http://www.foobar2000.org/) with some extensions sounds like it'll do the job. Very lightweight and versatile.

Go for Winamp v2.95, its better than the newer versions in my opinion. Takes less resources. But you'll have to install a plugin for WMA playback. Shouldn't be too hard to find, just google it.

I converted about 20GB of AACs to Mp3 in 8 hours, so surely it won't take 3 days to convert less than 18GB.

Don't transcode your music, you'll loose quality!
