XMMS is pretty cool too.
I liked XMMS when I used Linux, but it would skip whenever I minimized or restored its window; that was really annoying.

Yeah, I don't know what the deal is. I wasn't speaking in terms of everyone having those problems, just myself.

I've done many fresh installs of XP (I like to break things ) and I have never found WA3 to be stable at any time. I know people who it runs flawlessly for, but it just isn't working out for me.

Winamp 2.80. Didn't like Winamp 3.
Also WMP 7.1 and Media Player 6.4. But I have the multimedia files associated with Active Movie, the fastest player on Earth!!
Using Winamp or WMP to listen to a mp3 is like using Corel Draw to see a 3k GIF instead of ACDSee or similar.

Just tried MAD... it sounds like an ogg. But that's comparing a 320Kbps MP3 to a 240Kbps Ogg.

Scary.

16bit output or 24bit output? or even 32

I had the same thing with XMMS. I was able to fix it by increasing the buffer on the output plugin (can't remember what it is offhand...I'm in Windoze at the moment) from 3000ms to 10000ms. Give that a go!

Oh, and I'm running Winamp 2.81 in Windoze and XMMS (1.2.7?) in Red Hat 8.0. The sound is a little bit better in Windows, in my opinion...

Cheers,
JND

been using QCD for a while due to its full skinning capabilities and less mem usage than wa3 although I haven't tried wa2 w/ mad plugin though, I'll have to hear that sometime...

32-bit, of course.

But Ogg is still a vastly superior format to MP3...

I've finally found a version of WA3 that doesn't give me illegal operations every time I try to do something with it. 3.0c has allowed me to transition from WA2 to 3 without any headaches. I'm using the MMD3 skin and am loving it.
