Re: Trouble playing audio on the internet

Hi.  The answer is quite simple. it's because there is not one player which 
plays every media type to my satisfaction.  People have tried for years to 
use different kinds of plugins to get different file types to play in 
Winamp and it simply, does not work. and there's absolutely no law out 
there that says you can't make very good use of all 3 players, that's why 
they're there isn't it?  Each of them does its intended purpose and things 
move on. If you try to get one player to play absolutely everything, not 
everything will work and you'll be disappointed. I'd like for it to work 
this way but there isn't a player out there yet that works to my 
satisfaction. So for now, all 3 players do their thing.
