It is probably a little overkill to have a separate category for the two media player apps I use, but there are reasons for not just using one.
When Windows 10 first debuted, there was no media player with it. I honestly do not know when it finally was added again, but I needed a media player to play CD’s and ended up buying and using VLC Media Player. It has been very useful and I still use it for some podcast listening.
For most basic uses, I have Windows Media Player set as my default, and it works fine.
