[ArsTechnica] Winamp's woes: how the greatest MP3 player undid itself - Page 19

post #181 of 229
Winamp 5 is the only media player for me. Global hotkeys are a must, visualizations are amazing, and its one of the few players that can handle my 20,000 song library with ease. Jump To File is great, as its global hotkey to delete current track from disk (to clean up library!).

J River Media Center is even better but it's paid-for.
*Shudder* All looks, zero functionality.

I tried out MadVR on MPC-HC, all setup correctly (lav filters etc), and WMP using default whatever looked much better. MadVR made the image look a bit washed out.

Left is WMP, right is MPC-HC with MadVR.

So I'm not to impressed with it.

Here where I live, nearly everybody uses winamp, STILL :O
post #184 of 229
I used to use Winamp among many others, but now I use Spotify, becauyse it's legit and very cheap, and all my playlists are also on my Android phone. If I recall correctly, they use Ogg Vorbis Q9.
post #185 of 229
Winamp used to be one of the first things I installed back in the day. Haven't used it in years though. Used Foobar for a while but migrated on to MPC and haven't looked back. Now using MPC-HC. It has never let me down.
post #186 of 229
I love Winamp. I've tried all the other players and I like the feel of Winamp the best. Plus, I love the plugins. I don't need the other features since I already have programs for tagging and ripping. I wouldn't use anything other than EAC to rip my CD's.

With MPC you have to tweak the settings, which is complicated if you don't know what you're doing. Different profiles are needed for different types of media. I have different profiles for Anime, downloaded TV shows/movies, streaming shows, and DVDs.

MPC is great because if you get a crappy quality video from amazon unbox, you can tweak the image quality via the filters and make it look better.

I don't even use FooBar anymore... let alone WinAmp. It's all about Spotify on the go now. On mobile, tablet, laptop... whatever. I can just download my playlist for offline as well.

However, I still use FooBar a little for bringing out that glorious FLAC collection of Fleetwood Mac biggrin.gif
