Free music players

Listen to music and watching videos is a big part of my life. I am not a sound geek that must have the right portable speakers and the best sound bars available, all I want is a music player that can play many different formats.

I also want a player that works on Android because I use my tablet and Smartphone a lot these days. The internet is full of free music players and I like to share my experience with using them. There are many players available, but I stick with the biggest brands because they are the best compare to many others.

The 6 best free music players right now!


Musicbee is a music player packed with features. You can customize the based interface, sync your music library with all your devices and automatically convert formats if one of your devices does not have support for some formats. It also has support for Groove music and you can add your playlists or stream music from Groove catalog directly from Musicbee.

You might not need all features that come with Musicbee, but I don’t know of a better music player that has so much value and is totally free. Musicbee gets a 10 on my 10 point scale.



AIMP is another popular music player with many features. It might seem a bit confusing to use AIMP at first because the interface is a bit different than other music players, but you will get over it fast and once you started using AIMP, I think you will like many features. The Audio converter can handle a lot of music formats and creating playlists is very easy.

AIMP is one of the best music players for Windows with one of the highest audio quality right now. AIMP is using the BASS library which provides high music quality and if you have high standards when it comes to sound, maybe you should try AIMP. I give the AIMP a 9 on my 10 point scale. It would have been 10 points if the interface were less confusing.


Groove music player

Groove music player is a decent music player and much better than Windows media player. I used to have problems with different formats and the program crashed or did not respond on a regular basis. With Groove player I have never had any problems and I am actually impressed with Microsoft this time.

If you are a Windows 10 user and only listen to Mp3 and watching the most common video formats, then I don’t see any reason to download other players. Groove music player gets a 8 on my 10 point scale.



Winamp is a very famous media player and after several years offline, they made a comeback this year. I first came in contact with Winamp almost twenty years ago and I still use it today. It can play, rip and stream almost any format so I like Winamp a lot.

The only problem is the interface which I don’t like very much and it has too many features and many are unneeded for an average user like me. Winamp is available for Android users, which is great, and because of that I give Winamp an 8 on my 10 point scale. Winamp is absolutely not a bad choice if you are looking for a great free music player.


Real Player

Real Player is also a very famous media player. It can play Mov and RM formats and that’s why I downloaded this software. I like this player much more than QuickTime player, but if another media player could play Mov and Rm I would probably choose that player rather than Real Player.

Real player is available for Android users as well and that’s a good thing because if you like to play hard compressed videos in the Rm format, Real Player is good choice. I give Real player a 7 on my 10 point scale.


VLC player

VideoLANs VLC Media Player is one of my favorite players. It lets me play a lot of formats without having to download additional codec’s. It’s a small open source program and compare to Winamp, it’s much easier to use and you will never see any pop up ads or other promotional stuff when using the VLC player.

VideoLAN is available for Android and Apple users too, but apart from that the VLC player is a top player and very stable too.  If you want to watch MKV videos with subtitles, the VLC Player is the best player. I give the VLC Player nine points on my 10 point scale.

The winner is Musicbee thanks to all features and user- friendly interface. It’s a hard competition and many music players are great, but for music, Musicbee is best!
