Is it time to kiss Winamp Bye Bye
Everything else aside. I feel that above any other feature, Option or Gadget.
Integration of Windows Media Player 9 or 10 should be given some serious consideration.
WHY? because it is stable. Recently Winamp has been giving people problems by throwing "encountered internal error and needs to close"
This has happend in versions as late a 5.03. Nothing other than a full uninstall, delete all winamp directories and reinstall fixes the problem. Unitl it does it again. On the two winamp RR installs we are running Both have gone through winamp re installs. One of them 6 TIMES!
Different hardware, bios etc but the same problem. The Winamp site is not helpful at all and even with the latest version download and install. It still crashes. Maybe in a Week, two weeks or 2 hours.
Microsoft Media Player one both systems has worked flawlessly throughout.
With Media Player the visualization issue is a non problem.
The people we have these systems installed in are daily drivers, in their vehicles a couple hours every day. They do not want to have their systems down once a month or more. With Windows Media player being standard in every windows install and as powerful as it has become. Winamp will have less and less support until support for it stops completely. While product and options for Media Player increase.
And as Winamp right now is the heart of RR it is unwise to rely on SW that has gotten Flakey.
Just our oppinion.
