I'm amazed at how the Nullsoft staff has managed to incorporate such high quality streaming video into the Winamp software. I've played the videos on the Winamp website, and I am very impressed with the visual quality, quick buffering, and smooth playback. I tried the 800kbps Outcast video on a DSL connection, and it actually played without any skips. I've tried playing 750kbps Windows Media and RealOne streaming videos, and they always seem to skip and buffer during playback. Kudos to the staff for creating a great alternative to the mainstream players.
