Winamp is a free media player that features a large library of plug-ins and skins, visualizations, playlists and custom music libraries.

If you’re looking for a free media player for your devices, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that does the job better than Winamp! Featuring a friendly user interface and more advanced options for power-users in the back-end, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy both audio and video wherever you go.

You won't need the latest device or lots of processor speed to enjoy your favorite music and videos. Need to access your media on the go? No problem! If you’re a pro subscriber you’ll be able to use the built-in media server to stream music and video from your computer to any mobile device with an internet connection.

Winamp is by far one of the easiest media players on the market to customize, too. Change the look with skins and make it match your phone or system GUI, install plug-ins to extend functionality and support high-quality and rare file types, all from right within the app!

It's important to point out that this is one of the few media players for Android and others that feature full FLAC support and true HD audio output. Many other players will “interpret” FLAC and other lossless format files but then output standard definition audio; if you want real HD audio for free, opt for Winamp. The app also supports AAC, MKVs and other HD quality files natively as well.

We love the flexibility of Winamp and all it offers, but it needs to be said that this app is no longer in official development. The last major build released was in 2014, but there are many community sites around the web where people are still creating plug-ins and skins for it.

All in all, this app is a great way to enjoy your media on all your devices and has a lot of features you wouldn’t expect from a free media player like FLAC support and customization options, so give it a try and see if you like it.

Pros

  • Fast and Light on Resources With over 20 years of development it’s no wonder that this is one of the fastest and lightest media player apps available.
  • Customize Every Element of the GUI Install pre-made themes, create your own and make it your own in every way imaginable.
  • Supports 99% of Audio and Video Files – Even FLAC! Plug-ins let you extend support for all files, even HD FLAC and MKV files so you can watch and listen to all your media in a single app.

Cons

  • No Longer in Development Official development of the app stopped a few years ago, but the community still supports it with regular updates, new plug-ins to support different file types and more.
