    "Too cluttered and unorganized"

    July 06, 2014   |   By tomysshadow

    Version: Winamp 5.666

    Pros

    Can play FLAC and be customized a lot. For those of you who like libraries, this is a primary focus of Winamp, and it also has the ability to play CDs.

    Cons

    I never really liked Winamp, I find it to look too old overall and the library/playlists I don't like. I'd prefer to organize my files using Windows Explorer than within the player I use. But it is a matter of personal preferences. It is also awful for watching videos, which doesn't work half the time. The default skin could also be changed so... *shrugs* the catchphrase is also inappropriate for children.

    Summary

    It has had a comeback, but I still don't like it all that much. Depends who you are though.

    "whatever happened to the audio converter?"

    May 06, 2014   |   By VinylMuseum

    Version: Winamp 5.666

    Pros

    Winamp has been around for a long time, and it used to be the only app I used for playing music on any of my computers. The free version used to include the audio converter.

    Cons

    The free version doesn't have the audio converter no more I see, and because of that I will not download the new version for any of my computers until they add the audio converter back to the free version, and I will give it five stars instead of three, because if I use a free player, I'l just use Itunes that come free with Mac. But for my microsoft computer I need an audio converter, and winamo was the first app I thought of until I found out the audio converter is not available no more. I guess you have to pay 20 dollars to have that feature. Thanks winamp, it doesn't kick a.. no more since the converters not available.

    Summary

    ADD the audio converter back to the free version. & I will come back and give 5 stars plus rewrite my review, p.e.a.c.e

    "comes with malware"

    April 17, 2014   |   By leighssneaky

    Version: Winamp 5.666

    Pros

    It does work once you remove the malware.

    Cons

    It comes with conduit (and no option to not install conduit), which is malware that hijacks your browser. It's difficult to remove. It involved running Malware Bytes and then changing some settings manually, as well.

    Summary

    Download this program from somewhere else.

    "Best music player all around"

    December 09, 2013

    Version: Winamp 5.666

    Pros

    Very good sound. Low CPU use.
    Leave your files where you placed them and never try to re-encode them. Only change the tags when YOU do explicitely change them. This is oposite the the default behavious of the mamoth iTune (over 300 Mb) that insist on re-encoding all audio to AAC, relocate and retag your files on play...
    Can handle libraries and playlists containing upward of 100000 tracks.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    "None of the others I tried worked right...."

    September 28, 2013   |   By PatGoldson

    Version: Winamp 5.65

    Pros

    WinAmp works just as the publisher said it would. Easy to install. Easy to build playlists. Straightforward interface. Quick to respond.

    Cons

    As did all the other (a long list of top rated) media players I tried, it drags and skips a bit when I open other applications.

    Summary

    I tried the Windows, Apple and a tedious list of other media players and as I said, they all skipped and dragged, and they were unpredictable in the set-up stage- especially in the setting up the media files- like double entries of files or incomplete entries of the files in a folder.

    "Good alternative to Windows Media Player"

    September 04, 2013   |   By Blues22475

    Version: Winamp 5.65

    Pros

    Plays most common music file types.
    Plug-ins for playing other music types (such as music from video games) and adding additional features.
    Lots of custom classic skins.
    Classic skin mode is great for systems that have very low resources and struggle to play music in Windows Media Player (first started using this on a P3 machine in my youth).

    Cons

    Playing videos on it can be a bad time. Do not use this if you're looking for something to play videos on.
    Installer can install alot of crapware if you are not paying attention.

    Summary

    Overall it's pretty great media player. Have been using it for years and years. The installer is something to watch out for as it installs crapware if you are not reading and changing the things installed on it.

    Plug-ins allow you to add functionality to the player, and it also can play video game music that is emulated (with the use of add ins).

    Very customization for those who like tweaking it.
