I dont have a CD burning drive so record any MP3's I want thru my hi-fi with a CD recorder using the Analog input, but I've had trouble finding a really stable MP3 player as any jumps in the track from the computer while I play it out = messed up CD.
I had winamp 2.*something* which worked well a long time ago on my old win 98 set-up but since then im on win2k and cant find anything really good / stable..
Winamp 3 was really slow, its skin was jerky and lagged me up, put gaps in songs and it took forever to load files and stuff so I uninstalled it and installed.. but I liked the auto DJ feature
Winamp 2.78 which for some reason now bluescreens my PC about once every few hours.. I downloaded my latest soundcard drivers and the bluescreening increased noticably
Windows Media Player 9 leaves jerks / gaps in the tracks every so often, same with Musicmatch Jukebox
Ideally I'd want something like.. with no skin or fancy crap that I can leave playing while using internet explorer and stuff up without jerking the sound and messing up, and not bluescreening my pc (altho I believe thats a problem with some hardware but winamp seems to trigger it when windows media player and games that use sound don't...)
