I'm not really sure where to start looking, but I'd need a basic mp3 & wma player for windows 7 (free if possible). I don't want something that will waste my RAM and CPU, and I don't want to manage play-lists. I just want to dump a bunch of mp3 & wma files into a single a directory and have them play randomly.

LOL, I didn't realize that everyone here was using windows media player and/or iTunes. Call me a fool, but I thought the users here were more sophisticated than that. – user231785 Jun 17 '13 at 15:56

@user231785 - Whats wrong with Media Player and/or VLC? – Ramhound Jun 17 '13 at 16:53
ha ha -5, I hope you can spend the points you "earn" on this web site, or get a cut of the ad revenue. Oh, wait, you can't and don't. So I guess you are free labor. I guess you get what you pay for, and in my case that is almost nothing. – user231785 Jun 17 '13 at 17:40

I prefer WINAMP, but there are several other alternatives. Lifehacker did a pretty good write up on what their user community considered the best. Link here.
