Here's a list of plug-ins that are missing from's plug-ins section, including links to where to get them. (This list is by no means comprehensive.)
Note: Some of these plug-ins don't work with the latest versions of Winamp. If you're truly desperate to use one of the ones that no longer works, you could try downloading and installing an old version of Winamp (such as 2.5e or 1.92 SP) from winampheaven or, and see if the plug-in works then. Also note that I haven't tested all of these, and some may not work no matter which version of Winamp you use.

We recommend that you read Official 3rd-party Plugin Bug List before downloading any of these plugins.

Misc collections:

To obtain old versions of the plug-ins that came with Winamp, try this:
1. Go to or and download the version of Winamp that has the plug-in you want.
2. Install the file you just downloaded.
3. Find the *.dll file of the plug-in you want (e.g. in_wm.dll) (the plug-ins should be in C:\Program Files\Winamp\PLUGINS, by default), and copy the DLL to a temporary directory.
4. Reinstall the latest version of Winamp.
5. Copy the DLL back from the temporary directory to your plug-ins directory. You should be all set.
