Adding a bookmark to Winamp

This has been explained to me before, and I apologize for asking again. But how do I add bookmarks to Winamp? I recently had to reinstall my program and start completely over. Any help would be appreciated.

In the latest Winamp you may be able to switch to the Bento skin, Browser Tab, enter the site URL in the address bar and use the Media Monitor to get the playable links on the page.

Okay. I did the switch to Bento skin thing -- but I still can't see how to SAVE the url/bookmark to winamp so I can access it later.

(I'm usually not this dense - promise! LOL)

eta: I found the asx file I made last May when I had this same problem. Why isn't my current WinAmp picking this file up?? What can I do to make it pick up the file?

I found "add current as bookmark" under File in Bento skin, but it's adding the song I listened to last, not the url I'm listening to.

This is so frustrating.

As mentioned in the other thread, playlists/bookmarks will become out of date and need refreshing.

Also, not all websites make their links apparent, so Media Monitor may not find anything.

How are you taking the bookmarks - using <Alt+I> ?
I'm not very familliar with Bento, may be a focus thing. Try right click on the stream in the Playlist Editor and Send to > Add to bookmarks.

It would be nice to be able to manually add a new bookmark without having that stream (or whatever) already playing (perhaps listening to another)

adding bookmark

I tried and tried to add a bookmark from kttth com and found I could only get it into the bookmark folder by adding it from the playlist popup. The url would play when copied from their site, pasting into play location, it would play, but showed up only as "1." in the player window...and adding from add/edit bookmark wouldn't work.
I cam here to winamp forum and tried the above based on a comment. Thanks!
