    Official thread to discuss the Winamp 5 beta.

    Looks like some things aren't going to remain free by the time it's out (Screenshot attached.) :confused:

    They sold out after v2.65.. to AOL, now AOL are just showing who's in charge. I'm gonna un-install it and just use iTunes anyway :D

    I'm sure most people will (yet AGAIN) just stick with version 2.x of winamp anyway.

    I applied the Invicta skin and it was slower than it was in winamp3. I guess this brings up the old "it's going to get worse before it gets better" quote. I'm sure it'll be great when it's done, but it still needs some work. *looks up definition of beta* hey whaddaya know? lol

    Diff skins will cause diff affects, the modern skin uses a lot of resources also - I found that is you shut off visuals it increases the speed, also shut off desktop alpha blending .. that should speed it up a little bit ..

    You will only need to pay for features that require licences.

    CD Ripping doesn't require a licence, burning may, Don't really know.. or care, my primary use for Winamp was for playing media, and it still does that for free. :)
