Some sites are written for WMP, and it is not so simple to play such music with any other player. Winamp is my default player, and it does a great job of burning or ripping CDs. My computer cannot burn DVDs, so I would not know.
I never use WMP to burn and rip CDs. But, it works very easily with sites created for it. Winamp requires a bit more thinking. There are some decent players only (tell how if not so) like Songbird (too big, fat and slow), or aTunes. I used to like iTunes, but the more I use it, the less I understand it.
The newest Real Players have become contenders, but they work best only in the Premium version.
