Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Stay away!!!
Installed the newest version and, as usual, something new came up! This time the Format Converter doesn't encode files properly, and as a result, WMP12 (which I use to embed album art into the resulting files) cannot add new music to its library and, although able to play them, it is unable to gather info like duration, tags etc.

What's even more weird is that the encoders work perfectly when ripping music from discs or image files) :/

On a brighter note, you can finally control Winamp right from the Taskbar, although its more limited than the Taskbar Intergration Plugin.

Always liked WinAmp, may give this one a try. Been using iTunes a lot more recently, but just recently had to reformat and do a fresh install of 7, so it may be fun to have something different.
