    Ladies and gents, in one corner we have the inimitable Anarchy Media Player http://an-archos.com/anarchy-media-player and in the other we have the bulbous CoolPlayer http://www.coolcode.cn/?p=100.

    Round one... ding ding...

    AMP lands the first punch by looking pretty and being in grammatically correct English

    CoolPlayer jabs back with heaps more file compatability

    AMP ducks and weaves around comprehensive options tables

    CoolPlayer delivers a RockYou jab demonstrating how we could embed slideshows much better.

    Ding, ding... end of round one...

    Um, pretty ladies walk round with signs saying 'What's your preference'?

    In particular, I'm interested in the concept of turning AMP into a universal media player for video and slideshows (so sick of all the silly [embed] [/embed] things.

    Has anyone given this a crack... or are we destined to live forever with a growing heap of mu-plugins?

    i like to think of my collection of mu plugins as testaments to my laziness. i plan to start randomly installing thins in mu-plugins just to see what it does to my site - users bedamned!

    points for using the word 'bulbous'.

    Being able or not able to stick it in the mu-plugins is the major consideration for me.

    I haven't bothered with Anarchy as I use podpress and am happy with it. I quickly tried to stick coolplayer in the mu-plugins folder (after editing the coolplayer config file) and while the link for the options page showed up the options didn't.

    AMP:
    + love the simplicity
    + movie & mp3 players have clean interface
    - AMP doesn't seem to support .avi

    Haven't tried CoolPlayer yet...
