I never liked winamp... ever. I've always used vlc and XBMC. XBMC also has milkdrop... it's a bit bulky for just music, but if you've got an extra screen you can have it open there in borderless windowed and it just does its thing.


lol same, I just use VLC Player for everything, I don't care what I use, just as long as it works.

VLC doesn't play everything.

Other than .aac, I haven't come across anything that VLC can't play.

Then again, my main suggestion is MPC-HC anyways.

There's no suitable replacement to Winamp. Winamp has Gracenote database tagging, which is a godsend when I'm ripping non-English CDs. The freedb database in Foobar in comparison is downright pathetic, being unable to ID over half my collection.

There's a push to ask (beg?) AOL to release Winamp's source code: http://savewinamp.com/
It would be awesome... but unlikely to happen.
Wait... what?

There's a good reason I said "bugs/security holes" and not just "security holes". Everything has security holes, but obviously there are things you don't really care about. That doesn't mean they don't exist.


You still going on about security with an offline application? Are you simple? The program either works as intended or it doesn't and winamp has been functionally fine for the last decade. Your arguments for concern are weak and a waste of time. Winamp is shutting down. That was useful information but going on about security vulnerabilities and 'bugs' in one of the more stable programs you may or may not have on your pc is tinfoil hat worthy.

So basically, you know absolutely nothing about programming. It's nigh impossible to make a bug-free program, especially as programs get more complicated than just printing out "Hello, world".

I'm not saying that you should especially worry about those security vulnerabilities (like I said before, which you're conveniently ignoring). I'm saying that those vulnerabilities are definitely there, and you're a fool to believe otherwise.
What's a sig?

Pretty much this as well as my Koumajou Densetsu skins only being supported on Winamp. The auto-tagger is a godsend when trying to tag doujin Touhou music, that's for sure.

I've never said anything to the contrary. What I have said is that those vulnerabilities are non-issues like they have been for the past decade.

So you admit that you are sensationalizing the 'security vulnerabilities'. They have not and will not be a concern for anyone. Now if it had some sort of built in always online functionality that can't be turned off, you might have a point, alas 'tis not true.

Feel free to let me know that an airplane might crash into my house killing me at any moment in the future too.

For the record, I have done a fair bit of programming in C Basic and C++. I know how much of a mess everyday code is. Likely have a better understanding than you tbh and that's not a slight against you.
