I've used winamp forever now, and have been entirely happy with it over the years. However, with the advent of windows 7 (which now uses WDDM instead of direct draw) it seems winamp has finally become too old school to play videos.
My video playback is choppy in winamp (fullscreen), and it's because of aero, i've turned it off and winamp performs great again. But I dont want to disable aero. I'd really love a solution to get Winamp to work again, i've already posted on SU and seems there is no fix for winamp.
Other video players I've used:
VLC Media Player I have been using VLC but it seems as the video looks grainy for most video types (especially fullscreen) and the player just isn't as elegant as winamp is. What i mean is fullscreen mode doesn't work (taskbar sits on top of the window), and there's no controls to fast forward the video like in winamp (using the arrow keys). I like that it plays ISO files, so that's cool.
Windows Media Player I don't want to use WMP either. I just don't like the DRM features.
Media Player Classic doesn't have a goo user interface. So, what am i stuck with?
