That and being the fact that winamp sucks when it comes to videos vs other video players out there. Winamp should focus more on music, less on "media player" as a whole.
The place where music and videos converge is the key... meaning: Music videos. It's not meant to watch it actually, but rather being able to throw several file types into one playlist thinking only on what music it contains instead of what kind of files they are..

I have a folder with selected videoclips, some are concerts (not tracked), or sessions with 2 or 3 songs. Some is hard-to-find stuff, rare items. I like being able to mix it into my playlists, just to listen to it, not to watch it actually (which, after the first seen is kinda moot).

Now, I don't know if that way of using it is common or popular.. maybe if Winamp supports (easier) Youtube video streaming it can be quite popular..
