I am currently using ATI multimedea Center, i am not real happy with it, its really plain, so i downloaded winamp today (10/06/04) ive always liked winamp but I like having minimum software on my computer, to get to the point, i watch DVD`s all the time on my ATI deal, but havent figured out how to watch them on the winamp agent, is it even possible, any information anyone can give me would be apreciated that way i can stick with winamp, the music videos i download run great, i just havent figured out the DVD`s yet

You'll be needing the in_mplayer plugin to watch DVD's on winamp....
http://sourceforge.net/projects/inmplayer (info / project)
http://inmplayer.sourceforge.net/files/ (binary & source download mirror)
Latest version 0.41
Open Source (GPL)
"in_mplayer is a Winamp video input plugin designed to work with Winamp 2.9x/5.x.
It makes Winamp use the MPlayer decoding engine when playing video files such as AVI, MPG and DVDs"
Interested developers welcome...

PowerDVD 5 platinum is the current Winamp of the DVD player world.
(it's not free. But nowadays that usually isn't very likely to be a problem)

i use mainly three programs for multimedia: Winamp, BSplayer & PowerDVD but i'd like to do everything with just one program just as you. It's sad but true that at this point there are no superapps for all multimedia: Winamp is superb for audio with lots of plugins and a great libary and complex settings, bsplayer has quite many settings but is still the most stable alternative for use as a gui for lots of different codecs while powerdvd has a lot of neat, expensive licenced features like prologic, dolby headphone, eaglevision and dts (but it still lacks of DVD-Audio).
If you want good features for all your multimedia needs, you'll need a few apps.
