We've had this explained enough times. Winamp 2 is Winamp.
Winamp 3 isn't.
Ahhh.. So you understand then, Sybs, due to all the explanations. Very good!
I don't know why Winamp 3 isn't Winamp, it just isn't.
Ahhh.. so you don't
understand then, in spite
of claiming that you've had this explained enough times, and in spite of what DJ Egg posted above. Did you bother to read any of the educational reading material he supplied links for in his post above? It appears that you did NOT. So... I now retract my above statement that was based on your first quoted reply. Not
so very good, I'd say. And I'm sure you will now agree. But then again you would have typed in Winamp3 instead of Winamp 3 if you really understood the difference.
Now I see and you
should also see that DJ Egg's post to Rikkins above wasn't enough "explanation" for you, even though you said, "Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes... All right! Enough!"
. So, whether you like it or not, I'll explain it ONE more time for you, for your own good, to further help you understand...
The now discontinued Winamp3 (last public release version was v126.96.36.1998D) was built from scratch on the Wasabi
platform, whereas Classic Winamp (versions 0.x, 1.x, 2.x, and the current 5.x) is built on the standard Win32 engine.
Once again, for MORE clarification...
Winamp and Winamp3
(not Winamp space
3) have always
been two different Nullsoft media players / products...
Winamp = Winamp v0.x | Winamp v1.x | Winamp v2.x | Winamp v5.x <-NEW
Winamp3 = Winamp3 v1.0 <-OLD
(and a discontinued "dead" project)
The NAME of one product is
Winamp (sonz any version numbers).
The NAME of the other product was
Winamp3 (sonz the only version number there ever was for that product).
What's in a NAME anyway?? Sheesh! It's moot now because Winamp3 is gone and the name has been changed to Wasabi.Player
If you are still confused about it, then visit this page
at my personal site, and read the sections on that page dealing with "About Winamp:", "About Winamp3:", and finally, the "Summary:" section.
Just watch me get flamed for this.
Look... I'm not going to flame you, and if any flaming takes place here I'll shut down this thread. But I suggest that you search through and read the forums further, so that you can glean enough knowledge to back up any future posts you may make.
I've tried looking for Wasabi Player, and all it has is a basic text website with no links to files, which is a lot of use.
Well you haven't looked hard enough, or you would have found this...Sybs...
You wanna play around with Wasabi.Player? Fine. Do so. But understand a few basics first...
1. Download Build 499c - it's the most stable
2. Intended ONLY for use by developers and testers, but you can use it if you like. Nobody will stop you. Just do not distribute it.
3. It is COMPLETELY unsupported (same as Winamp3 is now unsupported). So do not ask for help with it in any way if anything goes wrong.
4. Do not
install it into any pre-existing Winamp or Winamp3 program folder. It must be installed in its own directory.
I wish i could just protest and go and use another media player. Sadly, noone can seem to make one half as decent as winamp, so I'm stuck.
You're not "stuck" with anything. It's a free country. We live in a democracy. Use WHATEVER player you want to use. But if you use Winamp, then don't have the audacity to COMPLAIN about the player of YOUR choice in its official forum.
I'm back on winamp 3, which isn't winamp apparently, it's japanese hot sauce player, which isn't supported by nullsoft, so i'll wait for a decent spinoff of that to come out, if it does.
Japanese hotsauce? Huh? Evidently you must have read the "joke" post by Haele in this thread
, but you either failed to read my follow-up post, or if you did, you just skimmed right over it.
