swiss army knife of media players


winamp has come a long way from its humble beginnings as an mp3 audio player. over time, it’s gotten streaming media support, plugins up the wazoo for various formats, a media library manager, encoders, decoders, trascoders, and video. well, now with version 5.20 (5.21 current) you get portable device support. this includes iPods, creative devices (2,) and microsoft’s “plays for sure” compatiable devices.

i assume this will be the most useful to iPod users who hate iTunes (like me.) a caveot i forsee is for those who have DRM’d AACs in their libraries.

keep up the good work nullsoft (i’ve loved their intro page for a long time.)
