i am still curious as to how winamp does things under the hood? does it just say "reduce filesize 20%" to everything, or what?
Imagine an MP3 re-saved as an MP3 without checking on the settings. It is not going to be a "shrink by 20%" but a change in dpi of the image as noted by DrO.

I don't know how the devs do things, but you understand MP3 compression and the options. So may be worth a read on JPEG as you can see there are a lot of different factors that affect an image's file size. Then install something like IrfanView and play with the settings in the SaveAs dialog to see the changes for yourself.
