    I can't not for the life of me find a media player that can manage my library with out it crashing or freezing up on me. The current way im doing things is through an explorer window and winamp. I don't like winamps interface, but i want something similar to use the explorer window. I've tried clementine but it freezes while im using it, window media is junk. I just don't know where to look. FYI i have a 120+GB library.

    Maybe that's why it's freezing. Your media player has to scan 120GB of files upon firing it up. You may have to just sort out some of your favorites.

    I figured that would be why, but windows media player or winamp dose not have that issue when its set up to scan that library

    Personally, I'm quite satisfied with VLC, but it doesn't have it's own library. It will open either an individual file, a folder, of files, a disc, a network stream or files placed on it's playlist. For indexing and organization of all of my files I use a separate cataloging program. Still, you could use one of the options mentioned to serve as a library if you insisted.
