Well then we should only have one, no?SirTalon wrote:I like the idea of using 2 separate media players, one for audio and one for video (though I think most users would prefer only 1).
Doesn't "feel right"? Please. For the sake of simplicity, which is exactly what we need, I think it would be better if Reactos had a single media player. Windows has one, so should Reactos.SirTalon wrote:I prefer them being separate apps because it doesn't feel right having both combined.
It does have playlists. It also supports streaming online radio, CD audio playback, and all the other usual audio player featuresSirTalon wrote:Even though Media Player Classic seems like a very good app, it probably doesn't have enough features for the average user (can it even use playlists?).
It supports CD Audio, as stated, and MP3, OGG Vorbis, AAC, DTS and AC3. In other words, it can play all the most popular types of audio that are downloadable from the net. How is it lacking?SirTalon wrote:MPC is a great video player, but lacks when you want audio.
Well yeah, ROS does need a meda player that supports playlists. How did you jump to the conclusion that it doesnt? Have you even used Media Player Classic? It sure sounds like you havn't.SirTalon wrote:ROS needs a media player that supports playlists...
No, it doesn't need that. Its a useful feature for sure, but if someone wants a media player with that feature they can go download iTunes or something. One thing I like about Windows is that it doesn't include "everything but the kitchen sink". Almost everyone has access to the internet and is free to download whatever they need instead of having some bloated install full of useless options and software that the majority of users wouldn't touch.SirTalon wrote:...and preferably a media library (i.e. adds entries about all your music to its own DB, to make it easier to play and organize later.
What we need is a single functional equivelent to Windows Media Player 6.4 (all the later versions are crap. They continue to support 6.4 for a reason). Media Player Classic fits perfectly.[/i]
