Winamp supports music playback using MP3, MIDI, MOD,
MPEG-1 audio layers 1 and 2, AAC, M4A, FLAC, WAV and WMA.
Winamp was one of the first common music players on Windows to
support playback of Ogg Vorbis by default. It supports gapless
playback for MP3 and AAC, and Replay Gain for volume leveling
across tracks. CD support includes playing and import music
from audio CDs, optionally with CD-Text, and burning music to
CDs. The standard version limits maximum burn speed and
datarate; the "Pro" version removes these limitations.
Winamp supports playback of Windows Media Video and Nullsoft
Streaming Video. For MPEG Video, AVI and other unsupported
video types, Winamp uses Microsoft's DirectShow API for
playback, allowing playback of most of the video formats
supported by Windows Media Player. 5.1 Surround sound is
supported where formats and decoders allow.
Winamp can also be used as an RSS media feeds aggregator
capable of displaying articles, downloading or playing that same
content as streaming media. SHOUTcast Wire provides a
directory and RSS subscription system for podcasts.
Winamp has extendable support for portable media players and
Mass Storage Compliant devices, Microsoft PlaysForSure and
The Winamp software development kit (SDK) allows software
developers to create seven different types of plug-ins.
