Winamp 5.01 is good.

I read about certain people having problems with Winamp v5.01 on modern day systems. What is the deal with this? Winamp 5 runs just as fast as v2 did on my system, if not faster. Plays the music perfectly, and streams audio/video perfectly as well. Not one single crash on this end and I have been using it constantly for weeks. I would say that the folks that are having skipping problems on their 3ghz machines should really look into a format and reload as something other than Winamp is causing their problems.

On a side note, I did notice one small installation problem with v5.01. That px.dll error that people have been having in the past half way through the install. I had MS Digital Photo Studio installed and this program was causing the problem with the Winamp install. Just a heads up to someone out there that may be having the same problem.

My specs:

P3 1Ghz
Nvidia TNT2 32MB
ASUS CUV4X Mainboard
SB Live! Value

I guess some people just don't know how to use a computer that well and do silly things like install their apps when other apps are open etc.

I also have a 1GHz system (Athlon tbird however) under Win2000 Server. 5.01 installed perfectly and runs great.

Have winamp3 running on my 500MhZ, TNT2, 128meg system running (well, now 1300MhZ, but it's virtually the same performance), it runs perfect.

Now I'm running Winamp5 on ma 2.7GhZ, 512-444meg, and it doesn"'t skip anything, even if my memory is full.
