Yes, I'm the resident WinAmp guy. Check "WinAmp Config" in my sig for mostly everything you need to know. The thing with WinAmp is that it's a pain in the butt to configure, and for no good reason. V3 sucked large and was abandonned, then for V5 they added the option to purchase it again, adding cd burning and ripping capabilities (woooo! just what I always needed. how much? ). I haven't proven the "spyware" thing, most certainly the newest version is free of it (just tell it you don't want to report anonymous user stats during installation, as it was in the old days).

As far as I can tell, SHN is only seekable on WinAmp when the external .skt files are included. I've tried v3 and v5, I'm using v2.81
