Winamp Music Player is the most popular music player on the Internet, not only because it is the oldest one, but also because it's fast, flexible, and offers a high quality of sound... all that every user wants.

The application plays not only MP3 files (the most commonly used audio compression format) but also MIDI, MOD, MP2, S3M, MTM, OCT, XM, IT, audio CD, WAV, VOC, Windows Media Audio, shoutcast Channels and includes the Winamp Visualization Studio (AVS) and Media Library, where you can see all the audio files that you have on your computer.

Moreover, it allows you to use custom interfaces that change the appearance of the program to your liking. Winamp also supports various audio plug-ins. You can download both classic skins and plug-ins from the developer site.

The most important characteristics of the program are a full-featured playlist editor, a 10-band graphic equalizer with definable presets, a plug-in for introduction of CDs and audio line input, display and control support, optimized system sound output.

Winamp is not only a good music player, it's free too, so you can use it as long as you want without paying anything!
