My personal preference is to borrow disks from my local public library. Its far cheaper than subscribing to several video streaming services, and the video and audio quality is far better. Also, I do not have to maintain my own personal library, either.With VLC, YouTube, Netflix, Disney+, Prime etc... for video content and Spotify and Soundcloud for audio, I see no need for personal libraries anymore (unless you rip media and need the $$$). Now if you care about the best of the best audio fidelity, I suppose why not but I just don't have time to keep the libraries up when Spotify, Soundcloud and YouTube gives me all the content quickly.
Lviewpro! Now there is a name I have not heard in ages. That was a fantastic image editor when it first came out - I even exchanged a few e-mails with Leonardo.Yup, still using it. Quick, fast, runs on anything, has what you need, not what you don't need. See also: Lviewpro, Musicmatch, Winzip...
Yes, I quite agree. Iphone is crap to upload mp3's. Android is much much easier and better....I started with a piece of software that was available on 98, then switched to WMP on XP, especially because it worked with the multimedia keys on my Cordless Desktop Navigator.
I had WinAMP, but I preferred Musicmatch 9 by far. It was amazing. Far better interface, it could take a compact bar-like form just like WinAMP can do nowadays and worked with my keyboard. Kept using that one until I could no longer use it. Then I switched to WMP and then back to WinAMP. I've been using WinAMP for a long time now. Big Bento all the way.
I couldn't believe it how long it took to synchronize my music library to an iPod and the fact that I was forced to install iTunes to do it. HOURS. CrApple loved to sync genius data, while I could've simply copied and pasted the files on my MP4 player directly in Windows in a matter of minutes.
Using it since 1997, never looked back. Simply put, using it daily for the past 25 years... still the best music player around. If Windows 10 2004 breaks it or something like that I might not update my OS just to keep it running...
I still use Winamp DAILY.
And I still have some mp3's I downloaded dating back to the year 2000.
Things that are not available ANYWHERE today.
Nothing beats having a flac//320kbps mp3 collection ready to go on your local hard drive.
