Publisher's Description

Nullsoft Winamp is a fast, flexible, high-fidelity media player for Windows. Winamp supports playback of many audio (MP3, OGG, AAC, WAV, MOD, XM, S3M, IT, MIDI, etc.) and video types (AVI, ASF, MPEG, NSV), custom appearances called skins (supporting both classic Winamp 1.x/2.x skins and Winamp 3 freeform skins), audio visualization and audio effect plug-ins (including two industry dominating visualization plug-ins), an advanced media library, Internet radio and TV support, CD ripping, and CD burning.

The Standard installer includes input, dsp, and vis plugins, but no media library.

Great program. Still the best when it comes to forming music playlist and playing music from your pc or labtop.

Well why are we reviewing a Jan 2010 file?
Why when I click D/load do I get a warning from Norton as can see here http://safeweb.norton.co..._emusic-7plus_en-us.exe ?
Why is it I am running a higher version number than this one ?
I think some one should explain this problem !

Bloated, phone home, adware ridden, slow, NO TABBED PLAYLIST, ugly and confusing UI (sorry kid, I'm not into flashy neon these days). Sure there are some good points, let's see uh... it play music, and lotsa gimmicky plugin, and um it play video too! eh wait, what software are we talking about again?

No. Thanks.

All these whiners are spamming the review section, I've been using Winamp since 1997 and have no issues with it till now, FLAC works, everything works fine if your OS is stable.

Only thing I'd like to see is an option to resample to 48,000 KHz or 96,000 KHz and any codec playback support like VLC, right now I use Winamp with FFDShow to attain obscure format playback.

It does what it says on the box!

Totally bloated crap. Aimp and XMplay are much better that this useless, Rotten! piece of garbage.

Good but Unicode support is buggy. Using the Winamp Classic, skin will enable it but using the Winamp Modern, will result in "boxes".

Im happy that standard edition is beeing released again now. I still think its too bloated. These days im toying with the idea to switch either to QMP or Foobar.

Almost 7mb for a player is too much. Version 5.2 was 4.2mb...

states flac works. I still cannot get a flac file to play at all. I got one to play once but cannot get it to happen again. the library needs to be mor eaccessible and eaier to use. that has got to be one of the most confusing parts of the software.
Thanks.

24-bit playback support, built-in Replay Gain, unicode playlists (Media Library support in a future version), and the same level of customizability and features.

Winamp is brilliant, and its maintainers are to be commended.

My Favorite MP3 Player, love!
If you criticize something, you already like it.

advantages
- fast
- totally customizable
- portable
- nice gui, skinnable

disadvantages
- playlist maxcount limit
- playlist maxentries limit above 100.000
- random track feature is not good
- audio quality is ok, but not excellent
- shareware, Pro version enables more features

"Improved: [in_mp3] 24bit MP3 playback, 64bit internal precision"

W00T!!11eleventy.

That's what I like to hear.

There is no greater audio programme available IMO.

VLC is great for diversity, but Winamp is best for quality.
