Yeah WinAmp plays video..You can even watch internet tv on it which is pretty cool. My WinAmp application was about 4.93 MB. You can choose the type of installation you want though; like full, custom etc. So far it hasn't slowed my system down any so should it be ok.

I use Winamp since I have memory (or internet)

I don't know how to use iTunes lol I have it, but it's just using space in my hardrive

I have every file on my computer all on one winamp playlist - works fine for me . Then i've got everything accessible , but of course for a lot of programs my archive would be screwed up , my U2 stuff for instance is sorted out By

1) Albums
2) A - Side Edits
3) B Sides
4) Unreleased and Rare [I Tunes]
5) Unreleased in Any Form Songs
6) Salome
7) UF / War Demos
8) Contract Demos
9) U2 Covers (By Others
10) Concerts by Date
There is no way an alpabetical sort would give that

I love WinAmp because I can just whack everything I want onto a playlist and then I have both that playlist and all the controls I need in front of me in a simple interface that doesn't cause clutter.
There's def a way to set iTunes up where it doesn't move everything to an iTunes folder, I used to have it that way but then I got sick of it.
