Just use Wine, it runs winamp very well.

Kinda. My experience was from a long while ago so some of the issues I experienced may have been resolved.

winamp at WINE work so bad

well i love winamp so much <3 from 2.75 or more older (i dont remember ), but at this year 2022 they have a lot problems at many distros GNU/Linux.
1.- spontaneously explodes , MY LOVELY MUSIC STOP and then open "send report of winamp"
2.- AVS not work: explode , if work 30 seconds : it my day of lucky. PD: forget about FULL SCREEN
AVS its basic for me
3.- never work MODERN SKIN or BENTO. ; the good way its Classic skin and some times screen margins are lost.
4.- FORGET ABOUT PLUGINS (impossible ) this is understandable because of the immense difference in operating systems.
i reapeat this problems at "WINE" at GNU/Linux.

i understand then winamp are CLOSED CODE .
you can create BINARY WINAMP to run whit basics functions (CLASSIC SKIN , PLAYLIST, LYBRARY and AVS/Milk Drop) .
But you guys have a lot fans from old school from windows 95, like me. then we migrate maybe for comfort to GNU Linux or MAC OS for WORK.
i use VLC for MAC OS and .... work fine but its UGLY.

i now you FOUNDERS DEVELOPERS are tired for thousends of hours of work.
but we are trillions of Fan-Boys we like SHOUTCAST, AVS, MILK DROP, converter my CD to MP3 and THE UNIQUE DESIGN OF WINAMP.
i hope you guys can dedicate a few hours every Saturday.

PS: tanks so much for thousands of million trillions of hours of happiness
