Winamp 5 out now!

Just in case some of you didn't know - Winamp 5 has now been released: www.winamp.com

I am delighted to say that it is a major improvement over versions 2 & 3. (For some reason they have missed out version 4.)

Scalable skins, improved media library, support for video, kickass visualisations, etc. etc.

I am liking it so much I am telling everyone! Go and download it now! :lol:

Cheers
Alan

They took the best bits out of 2 + 3, so, 2 + 3 = 5

I'm still using 2.8, after I upgraded to 3 and found it TERRIBLE.

I think I'll stick with 2.8. Does it plays mp3s? Yes? That's all it needs for me then Smiley

TOTALY agree about version 2.8, eurotrain.

I'll 5.01 I suppose, but version 3 was bobbins.

I've had version 5 on now for about 40mins, and I'm converted solely on the MUCH improved online streaming radio playing.

All I've used before was the media guide, relying on windows media player wanting to work. but winamp 5 seems to do everything that it took 2 or 3 windows apps to do.

Winamp 5 out now!

Tried it for first time last night after being a 2.8 user as 3 didnt do what it said, so used 2.8 for mp3's and Divxplayer/Videolan for vids. Now I like this version as now you don't need anything else but guess this will be the next thing to eat up my bandwidth especially when the Tv hosts have decent connections for strreaming.

Other consideration is, nolonger need to use Divxplayer. So not installing any useless Gator spyware from Divx anymore, only to uninstall it.
