Is it at all possible to get a version of Winamp that will run on an old G4 MDD running Leopard? I've been trying for quite a while now and just run into one dead-end after another. Twocows was supposed to have it, and I downloaded the .sit file, which turned out to be a text file full of garbage.

Does MacAmp Lite X (http://www.macamplite.com/)work for you?

The real question is: Does it really whip the llamas ass?

Excuse me, but that one just went right over my head. I'm sure I'll be laughed at, but what does that mean?

Okaaaayyyyy..... I still don't get it. Why would anyone wish to visit physical damage on a llama in support of an MP3 player?

I must be a bit thick here, or something, but I cannot seem to make the connection between the llama and the software....

Don't feel bad, you're not alone on this one.

Another search (http://www.google.dk/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=winamp+llama&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&redir_esc=&ei=a4A2UKL_HonRtAaep4CQCw) revealed this:

Mike the Llama is the company's mascot; this is frequently referred to in promotional material (especially for Winamp) citing llamas. Frankel introduced the llama in Winamp's startup sound clip, inspired by the lyrics of Wesley Willis: "Winamp, it really whips the llama's ass!"[1]

Did none of you use Winamp back when it first came out? If you had you recognize the sound clip.

I did use it, even played with the visualisations and was bummed, that iTunes was so restricted with that feature, but I eventually grew out of my viz phase (smoking weed is really fun with some extra viz) and didn't look back, though the past years iTunes has become quite a big pile of excrement, thus I wish, something simple as Winamp would exist. MacAmp is not that visually appealing though.

And I hadn't I searched for that video, I wouldn't have been reminded of that sound, which I haven't heard for almost a decade (Winamp version 2 was my last one, though I still remember version 5 and was confused, why there was no version 4.


EDIT:
And again, a www search (http://www.google.dk/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=winamp+version+history&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&redir_esc=&ei=HuA2UPXhIcvFswaS64GABA#hl=de&gs_nf=1&pq=winamp%20version%20history&cp=8&gs_id=4&xhr=t&q=winamp+mac&pf=p&safe=off&client=safari&rls=en&sclient=psy-ab&oq=winamp+m&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&fp=db6e7bd9aa37d21e&biw=1905&bih=1055) brought me here (http://www.winamp.com/mac). Man, I am bad at this, am I not?
