Winamp 5.666
Make the most of your media collection with Winamp

The humble MP3 didn't take long to become the file format of choice for music lovers and is now used by a wide range of portable music players. But MP3s can also be played on your computer, and while Windows Media Player is perfectly capable of playing such files, many people find that it is slow and clunky.

Winamp is a lightweight MP3 player which has a number of exciting features to enhance your music listening experience. As well as playing MP3s, the program can also sync your music library with your iPod and provides access to a massive selection of online radio stations.

Information for untagged MP3s can be downloaded from the internet and you can use Winamp to access artist and track information. You are provided with access to thousands of free MP3s but you can also use the program to rip your MP3s into a variety of formats.

Winamp is a stalwart of the MP3 world and after trying it for just a short time you will quickly understand why it has outlasted the competition. At its most basic, it is a lightweight MP3 player with a handy range of features, but it has a great deal more to offer than just music playback.

One of the great things about Winamp is the fact that it is almost endless customisable. There are a huge number of skins that can be downloaded to completely change the appearance of the program, and plugins can be used to add new features and refinements.

Please note that it has been announced that Winamp will be discontinued after 20 December 2013.

Winamp 5.66 includes a number of new updates. See the changelog for more information.

Verdict:

Winamp has developed over a number of years and the most recent release is one of the finest media players available.

Winamp is dead, long live Winamp!

This is what I thought when I heard the dev was put to a full stop prior to 2014. Metronomy bought it to AOL some days ago, no idea what's next.

I'm cruising on 5.7 beta. We've been buddies since 1997 when I first got a PC at home and as of today it remains my main music player. Got to use it with Mp3Tag as a side soft (http://www.downloadcrew.com/article/25814-mp3tag).

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
