First I wanna clarify a few things:
-I own an iPhone
-My computer is a three year old laptop
So here we go:
I've been using iTunes since 2006 now. And I'm generally pleased with it. But I find it using a lot of system resources like CPU and memory. And it takes sometime to browse the iTunes store.
Now, I tested Winamp a few months ago, and It worked a lot better. Song switching was smoother and it seemed to work much easier on my computer. Now, here comes the issue:
Should I switch to winamp as my primary application for listening to music and watch video? iTunes can only play certain movie formats and does so with EXTREMLY high cpu usage(80%) Can winamp play video just as smooth as WMP or VLC? I want ONE application to watch my videos and listen to music, and not switching to VLC whenver I want to watch an mp4 video. But, since I own an iPhone, it would be troublesome to use with winamp, and keeping two music players updated whenever I want to sync my device seems to be unnecesary. I tried an addOn so I could sync it but It didn't work, plus, there's all the apps from AppStore.
But, is it worth it to keep two players updated but use only one? Or should I stick with iTunes and deal with it?
Appreciate any advice.
PS: I probably misspelt a few words. Sorry.
