Whishlist for Winamp6 - Cider/Cedega Port
Hi.. I know, that this has been discussed a thousend times before.
I grow up using dos and later windows. (I'm 24)
Later I tried a lot with linux distributions and missed winamp a lot. But ok, it was not possible to port the whole sourcecode to a foreign operating system. As a part time programmer I realy realy know this issue.
Since two years I have to work with an apple.
Even if I use iTunes, Vox, NicePlayer, VLC, MacAmp, Winamp 3 Beta, or what ever since two years.. NOTHING could replace winamp (the free default installation).
A few weeks ago a cider port of CounterStrike / Steam came along my desk.. and I thaught something like.. hey.. just try.
And it worked very well.
At the moment there are just two issues, which I dislike.
First of all: The shortcut-bindings (there is still the windows keyboard layout).
And second: No direkt file import via drag&drop, or context-menü - just via "add" from the playlist editor (and there is this creapy wine-look).
Themes for 2.0 are working well. I didn't tried 5.0 Themes, cause I dislike them ^^;
Sound is great. Finaly an equilizer *_*
If winamp would sell a realy lovely port (with drag&drop, shortcuts, file-add from context-menü, apple remote support and some apple specific key-bindings like "previous" and "next") I would buy it immediately. Even for 50$.
Hell.. iTunes is realy great, VLC supports a lot of filetypes and some other players are ok, too.. but no program is as small, productiv and .. well fitting, like Winamp.
Maybe you could hold a cider-port in mind for version 6?
This would be realy realy great.
