I've seen a lot of disagreement about the best version of Nullsoft's popular Winamp Media Player for client use, personally I've used Winamp since version 2.0.5, downloaded Winamp 3, hated it, and went right back to Winamp 2. Right now I'm using 2.95 standard. I've also really hated the video support ever since the introduced it, and those spyware infested games from Wild Tangent only discouraged me further from using Winamp for anything besides MP3s and CDs (I use WMP9 for pretty much all other audio).

Any thoughts?

I've used Winamp 2 for a while... winamp 5 is great, and I just recently upgraded. Winamp 5 is much more bloated, so it runs a bit slower, but overall its worth the tradeoff.

However, if you use a 'classic' skin in winamp 5, it runs just about as fast as winamp 2.x

iTunes 4.2.0.75

AAC encoded files are far better than MP3's will ever be

5 is everything 3 is and everything 2 is, except for being crap, which 3 is. Just generalizing here tongue.gif, but its pretty close to what it is.

5.03 owns
so fast and takes so little memory
just too bad you can't do the double size for only the one section like you could with version 3, it's all 2x or none like older versions
