Anyone else using I-River media player

I just started toying with it over the weekend. I like how you can set it up where the player takes charge of the computer and sends the data directly to my sound card. Using the program that way, it sounds better than WMP on my system.

It also looke like it is a bit easier to edit, a big plus if you have a big collection. I know many of you use Foobar, but I do not wish to go to the trouble of learning it. What do you think of I-River Media player? If you have not heard it, it is free to try, give it a listen and report back please.

Is that J-River's little brother?

Just curious?

funny

I laughed out loud! Really! I cannot say it was a typo, it was mad noggin! I really thought it was I-river. Man oh man, I regret all those drugs I think I might have used in the 80s that I cannot remember!

Thanks RG.

I've used J. River media Center for 5 years

Most of my music collection is classical music and other genres for which both the composer and performer are important. JRMC was the only player I found that would allow me to use whatever tags I wanted and configure the user interface to fully use those tags.

There are plenty of other features I appreciate: secure ripping that works, multiple UI views, multiple libraries, output to several audio devices for multi-room use. JRMC supports a number of output interfaces including WaveOut, DirectSound, Kernel Streaming, WASAPI exclusive mode and Event Style to fit different situations. JRMC supports DLNA as well as its own more full featured network capabilities. I listed stuff that matters to me. I don't use many features in JRMC.

After 5 years, I still have not discovered a minimally adequate replacement for JRMC in the Windows, Mac or Linux environment.

Thanks Bill

You taught me a couple of things about the program that I had not yet discovered. This one will get bought I am sure.
