OK, OK - I can't take Windows Media Player any more.
It hogs system resources, crashes frequently and is just sloppy. The 11th version is worse than the 10th.
So I would appreciate any suggestions as to what is the best out there for my needs? I don't want libraries and playlists and stuff, I just want something that plays video and audio with a full screen option, to be free and not with any adware. So far I've looked at BS Player and MV2 - both p1ssed me off, one was just poorly designed, the other had adware on it.
If it can't rip music from CD, I would also appreciate pointers for a simple ripper in that regard too.
Thanks for any opinions/suggestions.
