winamp 5 is an extension of winamp 2 and takes away all the crap they added in 3.

I like it.. its also a much beter "media" player now.,


TRIBE Member
they skipped 4, and tried to forget about 3 by going to 5...

it's INCREDIBLY better than b4, and I think it's likely the best MP3 player for the PC at the moment...

check it out for yourselves...


Wow, Winamp5 lets you watch free streaming porn video.

For serious.


Install and run

Alt-V to bring up Video

Click on the little picture of a TV at the bottom of the video screen, and a menu comes up

Select "Internet TV" in the left menu frame

There are at least a half-dozen "Ultraporn Test Stream" channels in the list that comes up. I was able to watch streaming movies at 150k/sec.

I searched the forums but didn't see any reference to this.

Wonder how long it will last before AOL Time Warner (owner of Nullsoft) clamps down on this.

Winamp 5 I guess tried to make up for the faults of Winamp 3... (Winamp 2 + Winamp 3 = Winamp 5) Like woah...

The only new options that would make me want to upgrade from Winamp 2 would be the Global Hot Keys... I'm always wanting to change songs while using other programs/games... Without having to switch to Winamp itself...

Other than that, I see no bonus, I will still use Win Media Player to play all my movies and what not... As far as MP3's go, winamp is Quick Quick Quick...
