Winamp 5.5.7 shows poor video quality
Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 (2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.090804-1435)
Language: Spanish (Regional Setting: Spanish)
BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG
Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.13GHz
Memory: 190MB RAM
Video card: VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP - on board
Display Memory: 64 MB
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
I updated Winamp, from versiom 22.214.171.1242 to versiom 126.96.36.19989 first, to version 188.8.131.5292 later, and to version 184.108.40.20610 at last, clean installs without third parties plugins in each case, only to find a remarkable loose of video quality with respect to that of the version 220.127.116.112, characterized mainly by colors biased to green-violet, low light contrast, lack of sharp boundaries, and vertical sweep lines, observed in streaming videos and local video files also.
Meanwhile, Windows Media Player 11 shows no video quality problems, and less streaming video lag than Winamp.
If I reinstall the version 18.104.22.1682 the video quality returns to normal, as it used to be.
I am just a plug-and-play Winamp user, not a Winamp expert who likes to tweak plugins' settings, and from my point of view Winamp 5.5.7 does not work as expected.
Attached please find a screen capture of a streaming video.
