All of the popular media players work fine in Windows 8 so it really doesn't matter what you use. Use the one you like. Of course Windows 8 comes with its own, but it's a full screen "Metro" app so it might annoy you. I use Winamp as I have done since 1997. --- -What is best in life? -To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.
