i use xmplay.

looks interesting and it can use winamp plugins. They also have support for ASIO, WASAPI and Direct Sound. Of course you can do this on Winamp too

I won't leave Winamp any time soon

New build out (3085) fixes a couple of issues out of the gate.

5.6 has some excellent speed optimizations! Glad I upgraded. I've been happily using Winamp for years!

I totally use Winamp and I am using it on my Android as well I also have Foobar as well for a few select discs I have

I now use Foobar2000 instead of Winamp, and I was a faithful user of it for many years. But now that I have a license for DFX for Foobar, it's all I use. I like how customizable it is, and it's very lightweight. Plus, I love the fact that I can have the Library view be according to folder view. Since I have all my music well organized, it's the best way of viewing it for me.

I thought foobar2000 was soooo great that it would not need any DSP plug-in? Oh well.
BTW Winamp's built-in media library does that, too.

Winamp is way better than WMP, but I found that it was slow and had memory leaks. I now use Foobar2000. I think it's better as it is even more customizable than Winamp, and is very fast.

How did you find "memory leaks" there without the source code?

Oh. about customization: foobar2000 does NOT allow freeform skins, so meh. And you should really see Winamp's plugin dialog. A lightweight Winamp is only one button (per plugin) away!

I've had no memory leaks, and it's extremely snappy. Always has been.

Winamp has no memory leaks, please don't misinform... yeah, foobar is also good and consumes lower resoures, but winamp is very good.

You don't need the source code of something to find memory leaks, hahaha, what a dumb thing to say.
Monitor the memory being reserved by the program and when you quit it if there are no memory leaks then the total memory still being reserved in the spaces being watched would be 0.

I've used Winamp for music for what seems forever, and while since I've been using Windows 7 x64 a few noticeable bugs have appeared, they can be worked around. I would consider another media player for music if it had a better media library than Winamp, but none seem to match it for my needs. Foobar comes close, but its not quite good enough.

I've been using Winamp since it was first released, and have yet to be dissatisfied.

Thanks for the information, will download and update.

Sure wish they made a Winamp for the Mac, iTunes just drives me crazy.

cant say i use it, but i install it... i use zoom player for all media because it loads in faster and keeps video crisper.
i dont see the whole point of a media player wanting people to use libraries. like its good for people who dont know where their files are on their computers, but it doesnt serve a purpose for us more experienced users like myself

i still use winamp and its great.... my only issue so far in windows 7 x64 they keep associating with .mp4 even though i dont install any video codecs on it.

It's because you can have audio-only in the mp4 container, and they even group it with audio files. It irritates me, too, but it's easy enough to deselect the extension in filetypes.

I use Aimp2, it is like winamp minus the memory leak.

I forget what version I have on my win 7 box (I reckon 5.*) but it runs smoothly and will continue to use it for a long time now.

Yes, it's still my preferred program of choice for playing audio files. (i ONLY use the 'Lite' version though)

No memory leaks here.

I've used Winamp for years, hands down the best player out there for music.

Seconded. No problems with winamp, a big problem with the windows 7 extras 3rd party plugin and crashing though.
But for playing all types of media, Deus EX music, SNES SPC, Gameboy GB, etc. Winamp is king.

I use Winamp as well for audio.
