Winamp is a classic and popular MP3 player. It plays all popular video formats as well as audio files. It includes a playlist editor, which can put together the selected titles to a playlist. It remembers the paths of individual songs. It also burns optimised audio CDs. A built-in equalizer adjusts the sound via sliders. In addition, there are numerous plug-ins available on the publisher’s website.
Over one thousand modern and classic skins customise the interface to the user’s taste. After installation two standard skins – including one extremely resource-hungry one called Freeform – are pre-installed.
