Winamp for PC

Developed by Nullsoft, Winamp is a great media player which offers users essential tools to manage their favorite music and videos. However, it now may rely on many third-party extensions to add features to make it more standard for its players.

As one stop shop for users to manage their music library, it also supports users to sync their music collection to an MP3 player or smartphone. Besides, it allows users to stream music through the internet and share with their friends. Winamp is available for both Mac and Windows systems.
