Softonic review

Free music and video player for personal computers

Winamp Classic is a free software package that provides the same playback capabilities as this iconic brand. Many standard tools are available and it is possible to customize its layout depending upon unique user settings. It is quite easy to work with and thanks to this simple layout, it can be perfect for those who have been looking for a simplified media player.

Main Functions and Core Features

The main intention of Winamp Classic is to provide a stable platform when playing audio files. Having said this, it is also possible to work with a limited number of video codecs. These include AVI, MPEG and MP4. Another interesting feature of this package is that it is able to work with Apple-based operating systems as well as standard personal computers. Not many other packages provide this capability. Still, a small memory footprint ensures that performance will not be adversely affected.

Additional Benefits and Tools

Winamp Classic supplies additional plug-ins such as three-dimensional audio software and customized skin interfaces. So, it is very simple to personalize its appearance and to streamline playback capabilities. This lightweight feature also enables the software to remain open while other programs are running. As the media player is free, it is a welcome alternative to other systems that require a paid subscription.


  • A very lightweight and streamlined audio player.
  • There is no charge to download and install Winamp Classic.


  • The majority of this software is considered to be outdated.
  • Video playback capabilities are extremely limited.
