Why does Winamp 3 not work as nicely as Winamp 2.81?
I've been using winamp for a long time, and I've always promoted it as the best. I tried winamp 3 when it came out and was very dissapointed. Recently I tried it again, and though it had improved, it was still missing all the goodness of winamp 2! It is slow, doesn't run smooth on my P4 with over 300MB RDRAM. It freezes, I don't like how the plugins are integrated, and you can't adjust performance (or at least as easily).
The only thing it has is ... I'll get back to you on that one if I ever try it again.
I still like the product, but I think your Winamp 3 is giving you a bad name to new users...and that comes from experience. I go to univerity, and that means I'm surrounded by people who have replaced stereos and CD's with MP3s and their computers...people have turned more towards Real player, Windows Media player, and other players, which I know cannot compete with Winamp 2...but seem to be eaier to use and more reliable than winamp 3.
I hate to see this happen. If you could tell me if I am doing something wrong to get this poor performace from WA3 please tell me, if not, at least try to bring WA3 up to par for your next release.
