I like WinAmp. It’s a great media player. Always has been.
I’m still using it when I use Windows because its not as bloated and heavy as Windows Media Player or iTunes. If you got the right skin you can stick it up at the top of the screen where its reachable, useful, shows you what you are listening to and not get in your way.
It also has lots of plugins for every conceivable idea, which is always good.
Therefore, I wanted to know this:
Is there a media player that has exactly the same …
Is there a media player that has exactly the same functionality as WinAmp (plugins, media library, skins, support for video and audio and some streaming formats) and is cross platform?

I’d really love to have an open source solution that does all of the things that WinAmp can do.
According to this link on Jeff Pulver’s blog and this link on Ynet (an Israeli online newspaper – link is in Hebrew) the prices for the Jerusalem ROCKS! event I’ve previously mentioned, are now down due to demand from the people (mostly young people).
The prices are now 249 NIS for a place on the grass and 229 NIS for a place in the balcony (previous prices were 360 and 306 respectively). That’s a decrease of 25%-30% (depending on the ticket type).
The official blogs are here (Hebrew) and here (English).
The lineup is very extensive and for this price its a really good bargain on top of the fact that these are going to be great shows! Some of the line up include: The Black Eyed Peas, Arrested Development, the original band from the movie “The Commitments” in addition to an israei line up of “Hadag Nachah”, Muki and more.
You can get the tickets online on hadran.co.il.
Jeff Pulver, one of the organizers of this event, is looking for some corporate sponsors for this event. Check out his blog post on the subject and contact him.
