    I am a man of simple needs.

    I have a lot of music in FLAC format that sits in directories and subdirectories. It's mostly live music so it's not going to be recognized as Artist, Song, etc., by a media player.

    All I want is a simple, free media player that will let me see a directory tree, show me the files, and let me add a bunch to a playlist and then, well, play them in order. I don't need fancy nothing. Foobar may be great, but it's completely confusing to set up, and waaay more than I need.

    The smaller in size the better. Help is appreciated.

    Windows 10 Media Player is decent.

    It can read flac files now and rip to flac.

    I seem to have a possible solution - Audacious. Simple, small and easily organized by folder structure and files. Was super simple to set up as well.

    I will play around with it over this weekend are report back.

    So far so good. This thing is really straight forward to setup and operate and is a pleasure to use. And it default to gapless play which is a complete must-have for me. And it's totally free with all the features. I'm done.
