Best Audio Player

It still surprises me that VLC is on the list as audio player, and this year it even took top place! I've long used VLC as a video player, but never really considered it a viable audio player. I'm clearly not one of the cool kids, because VLC received almost 25% of the popular vote! Much like photos, a music collection can grow to be unwieldy. It's great to have such a wide selection of tools to tame the beast.

  • VLC: 24.9%

  • Amarok: 20.4%

  • RhythmBox: 14.1%

  • Other: 11.1%*

  • Banshee: 10%

  • Audacious: 6.4%

  • MPlayer: 5.1%

  • XMMS: 3.5%

  • Exalie: 1.6%

  • MOC: 1.4%

  • Totem: 1.3%

  • .1%
