    I'll say Winamp to start. With a few extensions it can be made to do most of that stuff, but I don't think it's exactly what you're looking for. The latest version is probably worth a whirl to see if you like it though.

    MediaMonkey is worth a look, especially if the music collection is large.

    Winamp would play all of those without any problems, and is highly customisable with plenty of support for a huge array of plugins. I have to admit though, I've been using Windows Media Player 10 a lot recently, and I am getting quite used to it now. Just can't find anything to fault it at all.

    I say Winamp. Love it and refuse stubbornly to admit anything better has, does or will exist. Bah!:p

    just downloaded WMP 11. Doesnt seem too bad. Looks great. Worth a look. All down to personal preference I suppose
