10 years after its launch, thepioneering media players facelift.Simple facelift or real revival for the veteran?
Faced with iTunes and Windows Media Player , Winamp supported increasingly difficult to compare in terms of ergonomics and aesthetics.
Its new interface, completely redesigned, draw a line on the concept of detachable windows sometimes called true gifts juggling.
Clearer and more modern, it allows a better layout of the library , controls and playlist. A system of tabs easy navigation between different elements.
Finally, Winamp now supports natively (without plug-in) album covers, a feature that radically changes the use of the reader even if we are still far from Cover Flow .
Winamp now includes a web browser to surf without leaving the interface.Convenient access to many playlists available on the Web site and save them in the media library.
The toolbar included to control the player from the browser highlights the publisher policy: more Internet Winamp ... and vice versa.
Function Remote allows her to read about and share multimedia files remotely from a web browser or Winamp, provided a program to keep running in the background.
On the one hand, a lifting of the interface really successful. On the other hand, functions that considerably dull and feel more opportunism than genuine innovation. More changes would have been welcome.
Mixed results for the reader who is still great in many areas. Try it, until version 6, which begins to be desired.
