There are already a number of comments saying things to the effect of "this doesn't matter because winamp is outdated and there are much better alternatives."
So as someone who still uses WinAmp, what are those alternatives and how are they better?
I still use winamp because it's simple and efficient at what i want it to do. It works with the library of mp3 files i have (supposedly it also handles flac, but i my ears aren't good enough to require using up that much drive space) without requiring me to connect to some service. It allows me to create and save playlists with ease using the "Media Library." In theory it allows me to update the music on my phone though i usually just do that manually. (Copy m3us and new mp3s by hand.)
The shuffle is kind of a joke, but i'm not sure that any music player has really "perfected" shuffle. (I'm not sure it's even possible to meet human expectations of what "random" ought to be in this context.)
I generally use VLC to watch videos, but i find its Media Library and playlist editor much less intuitive than winamp, though that admittedly might just be due to relative use. However so far i have not discovered any features in VLC that would make it a superior music player and thus prompt me to get more practice using it for that purpose.
So again, what are the newer, better alternatives, and what features do they offer that winamp lacks?
