    ive got winamp 5.0beta2, but it has done this in previous versions

    when i play wmv files, it's quite skippy. is there any way to make them play better? i'd prefer to use winamp for all my media files, including real - never managed that either.

    any ideas?

    'nuff said, you are running beta software, it's not released, it's a test package, it's still a 'work in progress'

    It still is more stable than any other media player I have ever used.

    O.k what the prob is you are trying to play Windows Media Files. You need the codec for it. It won't work without it. IF it still don't work if you get it, it is the codec causing it not winamp ..
