    Hi,

    I have to install winamp to watch online streaming videos from a site.
    But when I searched in google, it tells me that it is not available for new intel macs

    can anyone tell me how to view these videos without winamp

    i tried itunes, but it never opens the video

    thanks

    The clue is in the name... 'Win' amp. ;) It's windoze only, I'm afraid.

    What format is the video?

    Chances are, one of the following wil help you play it via QuickTime:

    From their FAQs:

    2. What player do I need to play the stream?

    Only the Winamp5 player (FULL edition) for Microsoft Windows is officially supported to play our streams. You may download the latest version of Winamp by visiting Winamp's site - www.winamp.com

    Why Winamp Full and not Lite? Because the Full edition includes video codecs and plugins that fully enable Winamp to playback videos. The Lite edition was meant to be used to play audio and streaming radio's only.

    Macintosh OSX users, you will need to download only the latest VLC player in order to stream. Streaming with VLC is currently under a pilot test by aznV so issues with the player itself may not have staff recommended resolutions. Please also note that the VLC player does not currently support stream seeking unlike Winamp.

    To use Soft Subtitles, you need to use the VLC Media Player for Windows or Mac OSX.

    DivX streaming (coming soon) will be supported on both Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX and (hopefully) Linux distributions.​

    does winamp have some sort of unique AOL format that no other player can read???

    why would they limit their users to winamp only? It's like those "IE only" websites. so stupid.

    If you re-read it, they say you can use VLC as well it is just in testing at the moment.

    Are you using VLC 1.10 or later? If not, try updating. If you are, and still not having success, then you might have success running Winamp on your Mac through other means.
