    Recommendation for free CD playing software?
    Hi,

    I have a Microsoft XP computer.
    I would like to play my audio CDs while I surf the Internet.
    Can anyone recommend freeware that will do this via a CNET download or something similar?
    Thanks!

    Does anyone play music CDs on their computer?

    I'm using Winamp - http://download.cnet.com/Winamp/3000...html?tag=mncol

    I used to use MusicMatch Jukebox, it used to be the very best many years ago until Yahoo got a hold of it and wrecked it. Then last year sometime, they did some more damage and I had to give it up.

    Never liked Itunes because it was always very slow for me.

    Thanks Trust!
    I too used to use MusicMatch Jukebox but I had to uninstall it because it wasn't working properly for me and kept asking for money for an upgrade to download tunes. I don't want to download tunes, I want to hear my CDs -- I have everything that I want on CD

    Certainly, plus it'll import your CDs so you don't need to keep putting them into your computer. It plays most audio formats plus it'll do video.

    I like VLC player. http://www.videolan.org/

    It's an open source project and a very popular one. P_lays everything, DVD, CD, and the best part, almost every video and sound format you can think of.

    Another vote for iTunes. Despite being an Apple/Macintosh oriented product, the Windows version actually does some nice stuff and better than WP media player, I think.

    (Only thing is, I wish there were some way to drive a stake through the heart of that iTunesHelper.exe file that always loads into memory. I don't need it and everytime I disable it -- upgrading iTunes puts it right back into the startup.)
    Generate more fake news.

    I like VLC as well. It also lets you play most region DVDs as it does not check what region a DVD is from and why should it really care?

    Silly laws, err not laws. Standards.... Not like people travel and buy DVDs while they are traveling.
