Editors' Review

+

Nullsoft still has some ground to make up after the poorly received Winamp 3, a dwindling user base, and stiff competition from Apple iTunes. Winamp 5.3 is a huge step in the right direction, with support for AAC encoding, CD burning, and a robust file-management system.

The last two versions, 5.31 and 5.32, have made small but interesting changes, such as FLAC encoding and decoding, CD text reading, support for Windows Mobile devices, and additional filters for the album and artist panes.

We like the Internet TV feature, which provides music videos and live concert footage, although Singing Fish search is less than reliable. Another eye-catcher is the excellent collection of visualizations. The massive catalog of Winamp 2.x and 3.x skins still work with this latest version. The free version is feature-rich, but if you want MP3 encoding and full-speed CD burning, you have to shell out $24.95 for the Pro version. Winamp is one of our all-time favorite players, though, and version 5 renews its promise.

"gud product but could be more better"

February 13, 2007  |  By hassan14_pk

 |  Version: Winamp 5.32

Pros

easy, an OK UI

Cons

no direct control from keyboard, like a media centre laptop has special functions to play and pause and etc, this is possible in windows media player and jetaudio but why not in winamp, UI could be more improved, it could be made more easy to be used, lots of features are hidden not easy to find, doesnt plays all audio files

Nice user interface. Several useful plug-ins available and lots of skins. I control mine with desktopsidebar.
