Thank you very much. I am seeing many video files in MP4 format and WMP 11 
doesn't support this format unless one installs the codecs. I use occasionally 
the portable VLC Media Player which does play MP4 files.

  When you install Winamp, you need to use the custom installation.  

  The Modern skins will be selected by default.  Uncheck this and be sure to 
use the Winamp Classic skins.

  It has been several years since I installed Winamp from scratch.  I think I 
also unchecked a couple of the other options, but I don't remember for sure 
what they were.  Below is a portion of a message I saved regarding the 

  When installing Winamp, make sure that the modern skin support is not! 
checked.  By default, everything is turned on.  So when installing it, arrow 
down the list of options and uncheck modern skin support.  You'll know it's 
unchecked for sure when you get to the skin selection part of the installation. 
 Make sure that the radio button for classic skin for slower machines and 
greater accessibility is checked.  If it isn't, you know modern skin support is 
still checked, so you'll need to go back and uncheck it. 

  Otherwise, you'll have nothing but trouble with it.  If you have a version of 
JAWS after 4.51, press insert plus h for specific hotkeys for the window you're 
in, or insert plus w gives you hotkeys for all Winamp windows.

  Hope this helps.

  Do you use the Winamp player. I use to maybe 4 years ago. Is the 
Winamp4theblind mailing list still around? Info please. Are there installation 
tips for installing the current Winamp player for blind users? Greatly 
appreciated. Been using Windows Media Player here. I understand about files 
associations that one application can compete with the other so I'll be sure 
deselect some audio/video file types during the Winamp install. Do you use a 
certain skin with Winamp?


  Any info is greatly appreciated.
