    Well I had a hard drive crap out on me. On it was the last version of Winamp before they went video multimedia crazy with AOL. I liked it ran well and liked the the interface.

    So what is a good alternative. I like a low memory and low CPU (hog) since I game and listen to music.

    Thanx all!! :bassist:

    wmp9 or 10 is fine

    older winamp is good... but no video... (stay away from winamp3)

    new winamp (5) is not bad... it acctually plays videos but doesnt hug memory as much as winamp3 which was HORABLE...

    windows media player is fine though :D

    yep, I STILL use Winamp 2.8 along with a sweet skin that makes it look like a marshal stack (why won't someone make an Aguilar skin!!!) It barely uses any resources and plays most file types without problem (doesn't handle the files that use the advanced media rights encoded in them, but you can always install the new one too for when you have any of those) I've still got the installer file for 2.7 and 2.8 and they are small enough to e-mail if you can't find it on Oldversion.com
