WinAmp 5 alpha 1 is out

Written by Lasse Penttinen @ 28 Aug 2003 5:59 User comments (3)

The first compile of the upcoming WinAmp audio player software has emerged. The WinAmp 5 aims to combine the good things of WinAmp 2 and 3, so therefore the version number has been bounced to 5 (2+3=5).
The WinAmp 3 was a total failure by Nullsoft. Its new features failed to attract the users. It was considered bloated and even unstable, so many were quick to revert back to the version 2. Nullsoft was fairly quick to realize their failure, so now they are giving it another go with the version 5.

OK has anyone actually tried this yet? How does it do with video. Does it still have a playlist or anything like it? Please tell us now it went. I use Musicmatch Jukebox for Mp3's and ripping Mp3's. Plus the Musicmatch Radio is great. Winamp may really have to convince me to change. Voodoohippie
