Editors' Review

Foobar2000 is a convenient and flexible media player that you can load with all of your favorite music and customize to suit your specific needs and preferences. After a bit of setup, you can use this app in just about any way you see fit to manage your media library.

Pros

Quick and versatile: This app loads quickly and plays your media smoothly. It also can handle a large library with ease, so no matter how much music you already have, you can keep it all here without worry.

Customizable layout: There are many options for customization available through this app. You can choose the Quick Setup option, or you can go through the process of making individual selections about the type of information you'd like to see displayed. There are also other skins available through separate downloads.

Cons

Tough for beginners: This app doesn't have a lot of help for inexperienced users, and it also isn't terribly intuitive to set up. If you have some experience with this type of program, you'll catch on quickly. But this isn't a good option if you're just getting started with media players.

Bottom Line

Foobar2000 is a competent and flexible free media player, and it can handle a lot of content with ease. It may not be the best option for beginners, but its multiple options for customization will quickly make converts out of more experienced users.
