    WMA File Format support

    Support for WMA file format on Winamp Android would do nicely.

    Over the years my wife and I have ripped almost all of our CD collection to wma format, she using Windows Media Player and me using Winamp. Having recently bought smart phones with Android 2.1 OS and transferred a selection of our music to the SD cards, we were disappointed to find that the installed media player did not support the wma files.

    Winamp v0.9.2 also does not appear to support what must be the second most common music file format. Our solution for now is to trancode the files we want but it would be nice to see the format supported in the full release of Winamp Android.

      Bigger play / pause button

      I would love a bigger play / pause button (poweramp does this).

      I use winamp while driving and the play / pause button is too small and too close to next/back buttons. Too often I hit the next or back button and then loose my place in a long book on tape chapter.

      If nothing else, more room between the play/pause button and the skip and back buttons.

      I presume this would be accomplished with a different skin.

        I just submitted the form but I thought I'd post here as well.

        I would love for a way to lock the screen rotation for this app. I use my Droid Incredible as my primary music player and I live in NYC so I do a lot of walking and listening. My phone is in and out my pocket all the time while I select tracks, songs to playlists, etc. As I take the phone out the screen will often switch to landscape mode which is hard to use when you are on the go. The ability to keep Winamp in portrait mode while in use would be great. I've used Mixing and *******n player in the past and one of these players had this option but I forget which.

        Thanks and keep up the great work. Love the app!

          Gapless Playback please!

          Hi, first time here and I have been using the Winamp player on my Galaxy-S for a month or so now. I really like it. I do need to find a media player that offers gapless playback however. Please make this a priority, thanks.

            Please make gapless playback a priority. I have many mixed albums and there is always a gap between each track, even on OGG files which are natively gapless but the player does not play them as such.

            Other than that, the Android version is very good and slick!

              #1 - allow the search to see aac+ stations

              #2 - allow us to manually enter a station

              #3 - allow it to use .pls playlists so that people who click on our listen link can connect
              Your mileage may vary!

                Skins would be cool. Maybe some more widgets.

                Pretty cool player. When is it out of beta?

                  Not quite "The Ultimate Media Player" yet...

                  Needs podcast support ASAP and with it the ability to bookmark songs\books\podcasts. My search for a media player on Android would be over if WinAmp had these. Any ETA?

                    I'd like to see the ability to edit track information, same as the PC version of Winamp.

                      This player really needs to be able to handle compilation albums better, rather than break each album up into multiple "albums", one for each artist.

                        WinAmp should NOT automatically start when I boot up my phone (DROID X). Doing that consumes CPU and shows as "active" in my app list -- albeit doesn't consume much. However when I STOP the WinAmp task, it starts up again on its own.

                        Please allow us to control which APPS we want to start. I don't use WinAmp every day. Thanks

                          It would be a great addition!!

                            Somehow, I got out of the 'now playing' screen of the app. From the Play Queue, I was unable to get back to the (now playing) screen. I would like to have a way to get back to the playing controls screen of the app without having to start a song over.

                            That and a Fine-control volume slider with mute on the screen. I think a volume button at the bottom (next to the repeat and shuffle buttons) that pops up the volume & mute controls would be perfect. I know you can just squeeze the volume up/down buttons on the device, but if you've got the stylus in hand, it would be better to just tap the mute button or slide the volume slider. Usually, some fine control of the volume is needed, instead of the huge jumps the device's buttons make ( it goes from 0 to 50% in 2 steps!)

                              I think I just got the answer to my first problem in the previous post.

                              In the Play Queue screen (or the Home screen, or probably any screen) there is a handle (looks like ::: just above the Play Queue button. tapping that takes you back to the player controls.

                                I just noticed that you can see all the usual time values on the Winamp app player screen that you get in the PC player's program. At the left of the position slider is the elapsed time of the current song, and on the right is the total time. The the bar where you see the song title has the time remaining value on the right

                                Is there is a spectrum analyzer or equalizer screen in there, but no one's found it yet.

                                The more I explore this program, the better it gets! I hope somebody is documenting everything so you can make a comprehensive help system (that you read from your desktop/notebook PC.)
