I just found an awesome new (well, new to me) MP3 player, better than winamp, WMA, Musicmatch and iTunes..there was a thread on the Something Awful Forums about which MP3 players was the best, feature and quality wise, all the goons kept mentioning this Foobar app.

I checked it out, hated it and uninstalled it. I read some more and they just kept raving about it, so I reinstalled and gave it a chance. I just uninstalled winamp. Give it a go if you’re keen, it takes a lot to get used to and a lot to configure but once it’s done, it’s awesome.

With some time spent customising it, you can get it looking and working really well:

It’s not as pretty as winamp, it is skinnable, although I couldn’t find any skins I liked, the default interface will have to do for now (I customised the playlist look using the links below)

MAD Plug in for Winamp

If you still want to use winamp, at least download this new input plug-in, apparently much better at decoding MP3 streams than the default one that comes with winamp (which most people use)
