Tomorrow's World was a show on BBC TV about innovations and tech stuff and I thought a good name for our computing and tech section.

I use VLC, if I'm not using Windows Media Player. VLC plays everything I've asked to play so far, video and music. Best of all, it's free for the downloading.

I have been using Jet Audi for years

get it from here http://www.cowonamerica.com/download/

or here with reviews http://www.download.com/JetAudio-Basic/ ... 13740.html

It is freeware and simple to install and use.
