Winamp is a media player that supports all the file formats that you’d want to play on your PC. Its video playing quality is quite impressive and there is no occurrence of lags. For audio files, Winamp supports playback using MP3, MOD, MIDI, MPEG-1. It uses audio layers 1 and 2, M4A, FLAC, WAV, AAC and WMA. It supports customized playlists and imports music directly from CD/DVDs, pendrives, etc. It also gives its users the option to burn music to CD/DVDs. This software comes with a speed limitation in the standard version, but the writing speed is really fast in the premium versions of Winamp.
In addition to all these cool features and media supports, Winamp can play back the files of Nullsoft Streaming Videos and Windows Media Player. For the purpose of playing certain formats like MPEG or AVI, Winamp uses the DirectShow API by Microsoft and thus supports all the video formats that are supported by Windows Media Player Surround Sound as well. Winamp is actually commonly used all around the world and it is one of the most known media players out there.

Winamp released a beta version for Android OS for the first time in October 2010 which could seamlessly sync with the desktop version and play your music on the go. Winamp has been performing great in the google play store since its arrival and has already received numerous positive feedbacks from the satisfied users.

Winamp Sync was introduced about a year later for Mac OS with the focus to sync the music libraries and give users a good integrated experience. Winamp has always been receiving positive feedbacks since its arrival in the tech industry from the users and they moved forward from the beta version to a developed version which is quite popular today.
