Winamp Essentials Pack Free Download - Audio Plugins
What is the installer actually called?

I'm offered something called, "Winamp_Essentials_6_7_8_9_10.exe", not "Winamp Essentials Pack 5.6".

That is correct. Typical Winamp crazy numbering scheme.

Hi there.

Not really sure WHAT it needs in future --IMO it's a complete product -- anybody attempting to introduce a new Audio Codec these days would probably be taken to the nearest public City Square and Hanged Drawn and Quartered in public so I can't see support for extra codecs coming in - or even needed.

I've seen far too many products being updated with load of "features" that you don't need and where the Interface has changed horribly -- I'm sure long time users of Acronis for example if they can remember the old Workstation versions as they were called back then had a far superior cleaner interface to the current ATH versions.

As for bloatware - just look at NERO -- I've stuck with V9 - the last "clean" version that still works on W8.1.

Incidently full marks to the poster who said keep all your old versions and installers --I've seen increasingly these days a lot of previously FREE software versions of paid products now being hard to find --often the current web sites don't mention them at all - and where they do the latest "free" version is full of Nagware urging you to upgrade and "go Pro".

I keep a separate folder called Installables and in that have versions of products plus .iso images if these products were originally supplied on DVD / CD. Updates I keep in separate sub folders.

Note though another trend I hate is that some people now only supply the installer which then connects to a website - you can't download the product separately for a local install - Horrible trend -so if you can please AVOID BUYING or SUPPORTING people who make you install that way.

Anyway getting back to topic - WINAMP will still work long after your current (and next one too) machine has been replaced - there's nothing more IMO it needs to add. Leave it as an AUDIO player - don't try and compete with VLC by adding video codecs so it can be used as a video player.

Cheers

Hi there
The PRO version (winamp5666_full_all_exe) is still downloadable on the site - so if you need to get the last release available download it now.
