WinAmp is by far the most popular mp3 player in the world. The reason for it is a perfect combination of usability and simplicity. Yet even the most avid and staunch WinAmp fans admit that some things could be done better and some important features aren't available in the current version of the widespread music media player. That is why both amateurs and professionals in droves download TrayList -- a popular plug-in for WinAmp that gives you the power of hotkeys, hothits, a media organizer, on screen display (OSD) and statistics features. The hotkeys enable users to perform any operations with WinAmp instantly, regardless of the application currently active. But the plug-in media organizer is even better -- it arranges all media files in any order you prefer, so that you can group song, performers, music styles and so on. An entire new album can be added to the playlist with only two clicks! On screen display (OSD) allows users to see the names of new songs as well as all the actions being performed. All of the OSD tips are customizable. 'Now playing…' is a pretty cool feature, too. Another great option is the hothits. You can create up to 10 different lists and launch them by pressing Win plus the number of the list (Win+0..Win+9). Windows 2000 and XP users are sure to appreciate the custom transparency settings for the WinAmp window with old skins in active and inactive states. The automatic play option lets start the song right from the place where you exited WinAmp last time, start it from the beginning or return to the first song in the playlist. There is even a preview or rather 'intro' feature that lets you quickly listen to a huge number of music files to get an idea of them all. Another great feature is a logarithmic scale to set the desired level of the sound volume.
You can get to try TrayList absolutely free of charge. You pay for it only if you are completely satisfied with the performance of this WinAmp plug-in.
