I'm looking for a media player that uses the VLC core technology. VLC can handle all my media files greatly, however I'm looking for an alternative media player that uses VLC code and has a better "library" sense. Kantaris is an example of that, however there application is buggy and slow. Any suggestions? Windows and Free please.

I've heard great things about Miro. I've never used it, but it looks good and seems to have a decent library feature.

There's also a list of projects using VLC on their official Wiki. You could look for media players in there.

Songbird used to use the VLC core, but switched to GStreamer (which is similar) a while ago.
