Is that why evryone prefers Winamp over Windows Media Player? Because WMP uses a lot of resources? I use the Media Player all the time, while I broswe the web or do anything else on my comp.

I downloaded Winamp, but I didn't like it, so I'm sticking with WMP. :thumbsup:

That is a big reason for using Winamp. And when you are on a slower computer, you don't want something that will slow you down even more. If you can run WMP and surf the web, then good for you!! I sure wish I could say the same.... :thumbsup:

There are other reasons I like Winamp better than WMP: it boots up faster, and its easier (at least for me) to access SHOUTcast streams and internet radio; There are also lots of plugins to make it play music and movie files that you can't play in WMP; the skins you can download for it are (in my opinion) better looking. And finally, Nullsoft (the developers of Winamp) patch security holes a lot faster than Microsoft does with its software. :flowers:

Should I add that AOL bought Nullsoft? :thumbsup:

Death to all aol affiliates! ... but since it's not CREATED by aol... then maybe it won't be as evil as they are... ya know, kinda like how souls corrupted in movies always have that good person inside them that can take control long enough for you to cut and run.

In the Preferences, did you put a check next to Search Sub-Folders When Adding/PlayingFolders?
