Winamp5 is better than Winamp 2 and Winamp3.
Winamp 5 is an update of Winamp2 (Winamp 2+Winamp3=Winamp5). If you want Winamp 2, download Winamp5 and don't install all the new stuff, or use Classic Skin. It will have the same CPU usage and memory footprint. For all old Winamp versions
(1,2,3,and 5), visit this site

Want a feature? Check the preferences
first to make sure it's not there. Also look at your DirectSound preferences (Plugins> Output> DirectSound output> Configure). This applies to all plugins (especially DrO's plugins).
and WAC components
are no longer supported. Winamp3 has become Wasabi.Player
. For Winamp3 plugins, contact the component author and ask them to port it. Do NOT contact Nullsoft.
Winamp3 stuff for 5
, Sidecar (not done)
Winamp 2.xx plugins
Winamp 2.xx skins are supported
(in theory, some are glitchy, you guessed it - author).
Winamp Pro costs money
because to pay for the licensing costs of LAME MP3 encoder and the CD ripping. If you don't want it, don't buy it, and don't complain. Thank you.
Old Winamp shareware
payments are no longer accepted because Winamp5 Pro is not an update of Winamp. This is the closest thing to an official reply from Nullsoft.
Winamp5 is only available for Windows systems (Linux and Macintosh not supported).
