Popular Ports Used by Games and Music Programs

I would like to track who is using the popular games and music programs on our network. I was wondering if anyone had a list that is a bit more specific than the one available at IANA.org. I know I can block all ports and then only open the ones I need but that is not what I'm after. I want to identify the machines that have these programs installed so I can remove the software and lock them down. Does anyone out there have a list like that? I have a program that will track any port I ask it to but I need a port list first. A port list of only the ports that are used by the most popular games and music programs that run on networks?

Thanks...

hmmm, that list would be ever changing...
since your tracking pc's down why not log all port activity on the server/router and go from there..
you can look up the port numbers that are being used and determine what is using it. from there use the log to track the IP/pc name.

Why would the list be ever changing? Once a port is assigned by IANA does it not for the most part stay the same? I don't understand why you would say that the list would be ever changing. DVation191 your site seems to do the trick but it is not all inclusive. So far yours is the best answer I have found. I'm hoping for someone to come up with a site that is more inclusive and more detailed if it exists.

you may be able to find a list with more ports, but that site tends to focus more on everyday apps and games for consumers than corporate type applications.
i don't think its possible to find an 'all inclusive' list...there are just too many applications that use too many of the 64,000+ ports
