Winamp 2.91
Real Audio Player alternative 1.90
Quicktime alternative XX?
Windows Media Player 6.4 or Media Player Classic 6.4
Irfan View 3.97

I´m using Winamp for 10 years now. I would never install Quicktime on one of my computers. Altough I´ve seen people that use Quicktime like I am using Winamp. The only reason why I do have Quicktime alternative is, that my Olympus Camera makes Quicktime movies.
