    There is a plugin called A-Play by Egghead Software which does this.

    If you can't find it let me know and I'll send you a copy.

      Just drag the winamp icon into your Startup Folder

      Click the start button, then where all your programs are there is the startup folder

        Yes for the original question to get winamp to start playing you need the eggware plugin.

        there is another plugin that starts playing where you left off...unfortunately I don't have that plug-in name, it is installed in my truck.

            If you don't care about what song on the playlist gets played, merely create a shortcut in your startup folder to the winamp.m3u file in your winamp directory. This playlist is a scratch file that WinAMP uses for the current list, even if it isn't saved.

              There is an awesome plugin called "Reproduction Control". You can find it here:
              http://www.cosorio.cjb.net/winamp-en.html

              With this one you can make winamp start playing automatically at startup. It also recognizes when a CD is inserted and scans for mp3's on it. When you eject the CD, it clears the playlist.

              I like it.

                Or, just add a shortcut to playlist.m3u in teh startup folder, it'll start instantly with the playlist you last used

                  winamp auto playing

                  isn't there a simple cmd line switch that you can add to the shortcut to autoplay winamp? (for example play the last played song)

                    Better late than never... it could easily be fixed by a Winamp check-box "(x) Resume playing at startup", but wtf - maybe it's too hard for them.

                    Create a shortcut that you place on your desktop or in the Startup folder.

                    For windows 7 64-bit the shortcut looks like:
                    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" C:\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Winamp\winamp.m3u

                    For windows 7 32-bit it's:
                    "C:\Program Files\Winamp\winamp.exe" C:\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Winamp\winamp.m3u

                    For Vista 64 it's:
                    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" C:\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Winamp\winamp.m3u

                    For Vista 32 it's:
                    "C:\Program Files\Winamp\winamp.exe" C:\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Winamp\winamp.m3u

                    For XP-32 it's:
                    "C:\Program Files\Winamp\winamp.exe" C:\Documents and Settings\your-user-name\Application Data\Winamp\winamp.m3u

                    I don't have a XP-64 virtual machine so I can't test that.
