Have it. Seems ok. Although I haven't used it enough yet to tell you much about it. The opacity is nice. Only prob is corner amp is supposed to work with it. For some reason, I can't get corner to work.
Yeah, for right now winamp 3 is good if your into how things look.
I run it on my system cause for me it is relatively stable and doesn't hog resources, however on my friends computer it sucks up almost all his resources and he has practically the same system...ah the joy of betas
but if wanna know whats a real resource hog...AIM
AOL instant messenger has a SERIOUS paging memory leak. I leaks roughly 10-25mb an hour into your page file
for example I haven't been running it that long today, but it is currently using up 4 meg of physical ram..and 205 MEG of VM....I e-mailed aol about this and they said it is a known problem that they are working on heh
Yes insaNity, but betas usually give a taste of whether a final version is any good or not - and usually by beta stage of development the core systems and interface have been mapped out and usually does not change too much when you move to the final version. In many cases anyway.
The best example is from when Winamp 2.x and 1.x was in beta stages.. I never remember reading anything about memory leaks, and back in Win98 / 95 it was stable for the most part.
Most people here aren't cirtitally compalaining about the beta as it is a beta but topics like this are important to point out bugs that other people could face.
IMO, I don't like the new Winamp 3 as it is more of a "done for looks" version of Winamp - I prefer the older 2.78 version which works well with the plugins I have and doesn't steal resources like 3, which I have also tried on my system
I've been using versiosn 3 sine the first beta and the early ones where a little unstable, but since beta 3 (i think) I haven't had a problem. havn't noticed a memory leak havn't noticed a cpu strain (mine runs at 100% always anyway)Its far superior to 2 (or at least it will be). support for multiple playlist is excellent
personaly the only thing I don't like about it at the moment is you can't edit tags with it, and it doesn't display some of my tags from some mp3s properly, basicaly it sounds great and its looks fantastic .
only a few skins avaliable, some suck but others are great. only get ones designed for beta 3 nothing earlier
Hey, I'm still stuck using Winamp 2.72
Personally, I think this is the best version of Winamp, every other version ends up hanging. As for sonique. The audio quality is far superior to winamp, but it is still very annoying to use.
I've tried sonique a few times before. I think it is pretty good, but i removed it simply because I couldn't find a fuction similar to the "j" in winamp - Jump to file. it is a bit hard to find the song if you have like 5000 somgs...
to reasons why i use winamp is because I need the Wowthing, and the advanced crossfaing plugins - They are so cool that i can't listen to music without them.
