There are few Macs(Do I have to add an 's'?) in China...
They are really very expensive...
I love Apple as well as Quicktime
But I've got to choose WinMediaPlayer 10
For it's more convinient in Windows

MusicMatch actually gave me fits...I could never get it to work the way I wanted it to...and burning an audio CD(for my personal portable CD player)took an eternity....Windows Media Player does the job much faster. Besides I like the choice of skins(the look of the player)and the visual effects which move in time with the music.

On our home computer, we have WinAmp, which we can use to play MIDI files.

The coolest things about Windows Media Player 10

faster CD burning

playlists are easy to create and edit

auto error correction for CD burning

plays DVD movies with CLOSED CAPTIONING on-screen....my roommate is hard of hearing,my PC is also my DVD player,so if he wants to watch with me,I use the closed captioning.

Excellent sound quality for music playback AND DVD movies

and cool visualizations to watch when listening to music.

I use Quicktime for video and MM Jukebox and Zinf for playing music in windows.
I use XMMS for music and MPlayer for video in Linux.

I mainly use Real Player. Normally, I use it to watch certain music videos.

With me, it depends on what type of media I am playing.

Videos: WMP (unless it is an MOV, then Quicktime)
DVD:  PowerDVD (2 computers use this, the other 2 use the ATI VIdeo Player)
CD Listening:  Media Player
CD Ripping:  Music Match (I like ther CDDB feature, and the 200+ kpbs sample rates)
Sound Playing (MID, WAV, MP3):  WinAmp (Classic Mode)

Because I qork part-time as a DJ, I like WinAmp because of it's clean, easy to use interface.  I love the features (count-down timer, Stop at end of current song, Fade Out from current song), which makes it very easy to use, and sounds professional.

I use "Media Player Classic" - I think it was released after MS MP7 came out, totally over the top and bloated, so this is a cut-down MP6-alike but copes with 99% of codecs as part of the main download; also came with a few useful media analysis and fixing programs.

I went for 'other'. I use Creative Mediasource Player mainly (the software I got with my MP3 player). Secondly, I use Windows Media Player 10.

None of 'em should - very occasionally a new codec comes out, but if your media player's playing the media OK, why update?
