RoSoftDownload Editor's Review :
Probably one of the most complete audio and video player. You can find hundreds of skins for it on their website. You can add files in the playlist very fast and you can save your favorite playlists. You can adjust the input and output settings, and you even have an audio equalizer.
You can establish a order of the files with the queue option; jump to next or previous song; search for file in the playlist. Additionally, the player offers many handy shortcuts.
Winamp allows plug-ins in for additional effects. One cool thing is that you can listen to online radio stations or watch live video in the internet.
The application is very stable and, with all the features presented above, you will be very pleased for choosing Winamp.
