Anyone that has ever used a computer probably knows about Winamp, one of the most used media players for Windows back in its early days until now. It supports a wide variety of customization options, including plugin, custom skins, and 3rd party content.

Winamp is without any doubts a flexible media player, which allows you to play both audio and video files without a problem, despite lower levels of popularity.

As the name suggests, the Winamp Backup Tool allows you to backup many type of information, such as:
