    Currently I use iTunes because I have an iPod, unfortunately it's a slow, bulky piece of shit for Windows. Does anyone have any other recommendations?

    Winamp Pro plays and encodes mp3's, aac, ogg, and so on. It also has free radio stations and a playlist builder that analyses your music to figure out which songs will go well together. It also syncs with all popular media players, including the iPod.

    It costs $20, but to me that's a small price to pay for a really good product that I've been using for ten years now. There's also a free version if you don't want to shell out the cash.

    Songbird. It looks like iTunes, but without the bulky and the suck, free and open source. There are also tons of add-ons to customize the app, and it supports MP3 players such at iPods

    For Windows, I'm a fan of MediaMonkey.
    I .. "acquired" the paid version, and it works well :dunno:

    IIRC, there is a Winamp plugin to sync with the Ipod.

    I like Foobar.

    But I don't really have a choice, since all of my playlists have 20k+ songs

    Amarok is the best ever ever.

    It's coming to Windows, but not there yet.

    I used Winamp many moons ago but switched to iTunes (aside from getting an iPod) because I liked the layout and being able to search

    Songbird is the shit, I love it

    you can search in winamp...

    I think most people don't know of 90% of the stuff you can do with winamp

    not to mention the fact that you mentioned the layout... how many skins are there for winamp? 100,000? a million?

    I used to skin my Winamp, but the new v5.5 skin is a lot more modern than the original layout, and it works really well.

    Like CodeX said, Winamp is a very capable program, it just doesn't advertise its features very well.
