    winamp???? whats that i seem to have forgotten as it died about 3 years ago to the greatest thing ever to hit the earth VLC!!!, i think theres a vlc for android, i know they came out for 1 for psp a while back, i find winamps is a huge usage chewer, think ill play me some solitaire, lol jk i cant im listening to music on winamp but seriously i think if they put this on a phone, and they havent done some serious upgrades, i can honestly say its not gonna last long
  3. Are you braindead ? Vlc doesnt match winamp in music playback in any meaningful way whatsoever. Vlc is to winamp what media player for win95 is no media player 11. As for video , yea we can talk about it but this article is about music management.

    ok music management, wise. winamp, yes is a great program for the management of your favorite music and media needs, but i wont recommend it to some1 with a low end pc, or phone who plan to multi-task, i just downloaded it to have a play around and a tinker, i found it uses 25,000k more memory then vlc, it still supports the amazing low ql streaming, i really like the new "song of the day" upcomming bands would really enjoy this
  6. True that .. its a little more resource hungry but in todays age with entry level machines having 2gb of ram it should not be an issue .... My browsers hit more than a gigs memory usage with allot of open tabs ... 25mb isnt that much .

    True about that, some times you go to TaskManager and your firefox is taking 1gb of ram for him self with only seven o even six tabs, but some java,Flash, and other stuff inside. And no matter what kind of pc you have, if your winamp LAGGG, just change the theme to the clasis one or eny other ligther, that will match the VLC usage.
