It is Winamp 5.666. Yes, it is later (and greater) than the discontinued Winamp 5.7.

Security with old non pathced winamp?

What about potential security problems with having a really old program that doesn't get patched?
I mean it is almost 3 years old now. I still use it and love it, but I wonder if it in some ways is a security threat?
It connects to the internet. It has its own internet browser, it runs plugins, it can be made to use windows explorer to open stuff etc...
I don't like having a program like this that isn't being patched...

First, Winamp now is such a niche product that i doubt hackers would bother. Second, the internet browser is just using trident in the system, therefore when microsoft updates your system for security holes, that would, in a sense, get patched as well.

Also, mind you, that probably the weakest link is the browser, it's not like you browse the net with it (I swear I hope you don't). So I would guess it would take downloading some malicious plug-in or malware targeting winamp specifically, or some how some black hat getting a hold of whatever domain names that are associated.

I don't know about you, but Winamp still plays my music. Is there a feature that you're missing?

Honestly, I think that's the attitude of Radionomy. Announce new version/features, and fail to deliver because the old version still plays all your music... So not cool.

Anyway, since you mention it, the de facto software program for any YouTube (and pretty much everything else) is, simply, JDownloader 2. It's Java-based and multi-platform; it will, literally, run on everything; & download everything, too.

Only be fair, when talking (great!) players - such as VLC, with built-in codecs, which are able to play /decode everything - to also take notice of the SMPlayer (yeah, among others, as well (Flow, Wimpy FLV 'n all that), sure. )

Btw., it's advertised as:

... It's got the SMTube & it's cool. =)

Also for me my both Winamps on my PC and notebook work fine, and their software folders have reached 2.25 GB, with very much skins, presets, textures, wallpapers...

2.25 GB, with very much skins, presets, textures, wallpapers... Let's see, I need to check mine... 63mb Wow! Lol. Don't think my computer could handle all of that. Amazing setup Sabine Klare. :-)

I'm extremely happy with Winamp 5.666, that my fear of a new, updated Winamp is the current plugins not being able to work for it and we'll all have to start over from scratch. And that most of the talented coders moved on to other things by now.

Winamp 5.8 will still be able to use plugins as it's mostly a refresh with all licensed and aol based stuff removed or replaced.

Winamp is alive, and this weekend I will enjoy again very good music with very good Beyerdynamic on-ear-headphones. And with over 22000 presets and over 4500 textures I cannot get bored. Now with 2.39 GB.

Playing right now my own music on the website "Butterchurn visualizer".

And now Happy Easter, and look forward...
