After so many discussions about this player winamp3 seems to take out little too much resources from our computer but still do it's job . Let's discuss a little about version 3 in front of other older versions ..
When WinAmp 2.78 came out, it would NOT play any Audio CDs whatsoever. I tried both my burner and DVD drive and it would just pop up in the playlist "unrecognized format". So I tried WinAmp 3.something and it worked. That's about the only good thing I liked about it. I was very relieved when WinAmp 2.80 came out because for some reason my Audio CDs work again and don't have to use WA3. What I like most about WA2 is that it does its job in the easiest way possible. If I wanted an elephant to play my MP3s I would use Media Player or Real Player.
As its stands it dose need some work, but thats why its still beta, there putting it through its paces in the real world to see how it holds up. I'm using 2.80 and have not had a problem with anything and the midi to wav converter works like a charm.
