I only use it when watching NSV streams. Otherwise, I play my videos with BSplayer and Media Player Classic.

IrfanView, ne1?

jeez, coulda put an 'other' option there...
I found that Winamp plays video's to slow on my computer, so I use IrfanView32 3.85 as it uses available codecs to playback videos and because it's a lite program it can run fast on a 300mhz computer
Perhaps Winamp should stick with audio as it's doing a pretty damn good job in that department, winamp3 is an exception .

/added - I also use IrfanView to preview audio with kazaa lite k++ as the built in Windows media play doesn't even work in kazaa for me , but lacks quality playback since it doesn't have an equalizer... - /added/

winamp doesn't do that great a job with video for me. I use media player for video most of the time.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

To me, Winamp 5 Video Player it's doin a great job !
Windows Media PLayer is to heavy, even to my 2,4Ghz PC
And other players like Irfanview and Bsplayer dont please me ...
And Winamp EQ it's worth the job !

winamp's video is good, i use it over WMP.

of course, i still use BSPlayer over either of them, but that ain't an option

Winamp with Quicktime for the .mov's

also I tend to make most of my vids into .bnk's to save a bit of diskspace. (So rad is used then)

Winamp 5 video player - the rest I've used suck, and i'm quite pleased with Winamp. I also do use DivX player for some fivx movies.

I use Winamp for all video file types that it's capable of playing.
It blows WMP away, that's for sure.
Although I still have to use Crapple QuickCrap for .mov files ect.
And RealPlayer for it's formats, but Winamp plays pretty much everything else.

I sometimes use Winamp for video, but only so I can control it using bemused. When at my PC I prefer WMP

WMP for videos...

Hmm, I'm still sticking with IrfanView to play my movies, as I nodoubtedly already have most video codecs installed, so it plays movies faster on slower machines... If you'd prefer a better interface/gui look then sure WMP or WINAMP but I prefer function over form.
