    Which version of winamp to use with the ride runner program?

    It's been a while since I have used roadrunner (so long they changed the name to riderunner. . .took a double-take as I didn't realize the name had changed). Anyways, I'm trying to setup this system (I'll be using my Asus G1 Laptop with 2gb of ram and core2 duo 2ghz processor). Things have changed a bit since I setup my first one several years back (more than several actually, LOL). I was wondering if winamp version less than 3.0 will run with riderunner or do I need to download a newer version (as I've used I Tunes for the past 6 years). Also, can I use the Garmin NRoute software as a viable gps option? Or am I better off purchasing something else like IGuidance. Is there a free alternative that wouldn't require internet. Also, I have an IPhone and was thinking about jailbreaking it. Could I possibly tether the phone using usb (as I'll remove the drive and go with a mini pcie solid state drive most likely for speed and reliability). I saw a tether plugin for riderunner and noticed it looked like it was for a blackberry. Didn't know if it could be possibly used with the iphone to port internet (and possibly my playlists) into roadrunner.

    remove some of the extras when installing, and keep it in classic skin
    most people hide winamp anyway...

    Are there any benefits to using winamp over ITunes (I have a good bit of music in protected MP4 format). Been considering converting it all to unprotected mp3 but havn't found any good software to do that. Can I use ITunes and still be able to integrate XM or Sirius? Just wondering. I feel like a newbie all over again. LOL. Thanks for the information about winamp. Depending on the answer I get about sirius and xm I'll probably download 5.572 version of winamp as suggested.

    You can use either player WinAmp or iTunes, though with the latter, you'll have limited player features. RR was built around WA so that has the most support of all the avail players.

    As Mitch said, usually the newest one avail, but any version really from 2.95 -> current will work.

    Sounds great. I will be looking for a plugin that will allow me to play my protected content music in winamp then. Hopefully I'll find something. I prefer the pre-3.0 versions of winamp but I'll try the other ones as I haven't used winamp since the pentium 4 days. Hopefully it'll run faster on my current system and won't slow my system down (tho itunes isn't necessarily light on its feet either). My goal is to get my system to boot in the least amt of time possible. I loved the first generation winamp, so I might revert to it (I'll probably look in my software archives when I get home to see if I didn't delete it). Anyways, this is fun. I've been playing with the new version of riderunner and I have to say I like it. I'll be running what'll be in essence a dual monitor setup (the laptop's display running at 1680x1050 and the Mimo 740 usb monitor I bought to mount in the dash running at 800x480. Having said that. . .

    Does anyone know if there's a way to force certain apps to boot into that secondary monitor? Is there a command I can issue when I add the line to the windows registry to force roadrunner to startup on the USB monitor upon loading windows? I want it to with certainty start on my USB monitor.

    I'm curious about the GPS software too. I've only got MS Streets and Trips from a few years ago. Will the MS GPS work with other software? I assume iGuidance or something like it is much better than S&T?

    Also, out of curiosity, why won't Windows Media Player work instead of Winamp?


    Cheers,

    That would work too...Like I said though, among all the avail player's WA has the most support and most flexible. Some of the other are less feature/support is b/c of two things: less time to dev them or their SDK is limited in what you can control and/or amount of info that can be pulled from it.

    I just downloaded winamp 5.23 and I actually like it. Downloaded the lite version. It looks identical to the original version. I read that it is the old version with some upgrades and that the nullsoft team actually dumped the 3.0 version. It seems great so far.

    WINAMPS < 5.31 ARE NOT UNICODE COMPLIANT

    WMP works fine.. just a little less features
    Itunes works too, even less features... and is slow to get going
