    Not quite true, but an attention grabbing headline wouldnt you say?
    Winamp is the easily the best, the cleanest and easiest to use mp3 player i've found, im not a fan of sonique and media player is only slightly better (than sonique)

    the only thing that pisses me off with winamp is the random function. i have about 3000 songs in my playlist, so why o why does it ALWAYS seem to play the same songs in a similar 'randomness'? I have fiddled with the 'shuffle' options and that doesnt seem to make any major difference.

    question one: is there another mp3 player out there, that is as good as winamp, but solves the randomness problem?

    question two: is there a way to fix this problem in winamp?

    I don't know of any other MP3 players that use as least resources as Winamp. One question- If you're tired of hearing the same order, why don't you just remove those songs???

    I used to have that problem. Don't use shuffle, it doesn't quite know how to shuffle a lot of songs. Instead Randomize List (misc, sort, randomize). When the list is randomized it can't play a song until it gets back around to it. Yeah, this makes it hard to find songs alphabetically - definitely not perfect. But its better than shuffle.

    I'll try Winamp 3.

    My problem is not that i dont LIKE the songs that it plays, but i want it to be actually intelligently RANDOM in its selection of the music, as in realise that --- yes, its just played YMCA by the village people* 60 million times already that day, and grease mega mix* a similar number of times :) so it should try playing the Paul van Dyke or similar DJ instead for a change!

    I like winamp and its cool but I don't use it anymore. I got me self a Creative DAP Jukebox 20GB (NOMAD for the Americans here). I use that now but Winamp3 problery is the best to try.

    Also does anyone know where to get a decent PlugIn that lets Winamp read the Jukebox? The version creative supplied with my Jukebox didn't work as I was looking for the Nomad.

    Winamp3 is great! - Real Jukebox (not real one player) is good but its full of spyware or so i've been told

    Yep, Winamp 3 is a good choice... Unfortunatly, the available beta version is very unstable and crash often when tweaking in the playlists or in the other options...
