It's just my personal opinion, I know others do prefer having everything in one, or all music regardless of audio or video, being handled by winamp.

I think my opinion is mostly based on this
  • Winamp was originally just a music player up until version 5.0 was released (or later 2.9x interally if i remember correctly).
  • video implementation always seemed on the backburner vs other things
  • last time I really tried to use winamp as a video player was over 10 years ago
  • winamp library manages music perfectly but not so much with videos in terms of tags
  • winaqmp always seem to lack things that other players like VLC and MPC had
  • very little useful video plugins out there for winamp

Now like I said, it's been 10+ years, so a lot of my opinions might be just wrong, because since then I have been clicking video capabilities off when I install.

But, when it comes to music, Winamp is the best, when it comes to video, winamp is far behind vs VLC and MPC.


Current status of Winamp: (Winamp 5.8) is not an ongoing project get wacup

5.8 beta issue quick fix - Install 5.666 (there's no further 5.8 releases)
