Yep. Searching was borked awhile ago, but it seems OK now. But ya gotta remember guys... this New site design (http://forums.winamp.com/announcement.php?s=&forumid=11) has and apparently is still having some glitches (http://forums.winamp.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=164).
Give it time. Give it time. ;)

For the search stuff, as a workaround try a Google (http://www.google.com/) search with the following Operators/filters as part of the search query
Music or Videos
artist/group or title here site:www.winamp.com/media/music-artist
artist/group or title here site:www.winamp.com/media/video-artist
search keyword(s) here site:www.winamp.com/plugins/details -inurl:reviews -inurl:opinion
search keyword(s) here site:www.winamp.com/skins/details -inurl:reviews -inurl:opinion

Have you tried Google's new Searchmash (http://***********mash.com/) yet?
You won't see the Google brand anywhere there, and it's really awesome...
Searchmash Current Features (http://***********mash.com/about/features.html)
Google's New SearchMash Test Site (http://blog.searchenginewatch.com/blog/061002-192616)
Searchmash Google interface experiment (http://lifehacker.com/software/search-engines/searchmash-google-interface-experiment-218217.php)

And of course, there's the engine that I use now more than Google these days... Ask.com (http://www.ask.com)

No, I hadn't tried that before. Thanks
The search Operators mentioned in the previous post works there as well.
Anyways, as another alternative you can "manually" search Winamp.com via your browser's address bar...

When using more than one keyword, replace spaces with %20
