The real Nullsoft Winamp is an ultimate player. I'm sorry to say WinampSync is far from an ultimate player. In fact it doesn't have much in common with the Windows Winamp. So this is more like big Winamp's sad little brother who stayed small because he didn't eat his spinach.
I think the Nullsoft team lacks resources to fully develop this.
Sad. This could have been a killer app.
But I am using Winamp anyway. Just not this version.
----
I love Winamp so much that I am running Winamp 5.63 for Windows on my iMac using Virtualbox (free app). So now I have the real Winamp and I can use all my plugins AND SKINS!!!. Also I can use Streamripper with Winamp and record streaming audio with Winamp.
Memory usage for VirtualBox (running Windows Fundamentals and Winamp) is 430 Mb and well worth it. Works fantastic.
---
Other solution: You may also try installing Winamp 5 in a virtual container using Wine. You could then run Winamp like any other app. Didn't work for me but you may be lucky.
---
I will help anyone who wants to set up Winamp with Virtualbox
Or try installing Winamp 5 with CrossOver. Again: you may be lucky...

After ALL THESE YEARS I still can't use WinAmp skins or plugins.

It's a rudimentary media player at best.

This is NOT WinAmp but "WinAmp Sync" and is more geared towards Android device users whom want to sync their audio media between their device and Macs.

Also, here's a clip of their End User License Agreement (note that Nullsoft is a subsidiary of AOL);

"NULLSOFT END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR THE WINAMP SOFTWARE
 
WELCOME! YOU MAY USE THE WINAMP SOFTWARE AND APPLICATIONS ONLY ON THE CONDITION THAT YOU AGREE TO ABIDE BY ALL OF THE TERMS IN THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT.

CLICKING THE ACCEPTANCE BUTTON BELOW INDICATES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS OF THE WINAMP PLAYER LICENSE AGREEMENT AND THE TERMS OF THE LICENSE AGREEMENTS FOR ANY THIRD PARTY OFFERINGS YOU HAVE CHECKED OFF IN THE DOWNLOAD MANAGER.
 
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING YOUR COMPUTER SETTINGS
 
PLEASE NOTE THAT CERTAIN FEATURES AND FUNCTIONALITY OF THE WINAMP CLIENT AND THIRD PARTY COMPONENTS MAY CHANGE YOUR COMPUTER SETTINGS.  YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DECLINE THESE CHANGES AS PART OF YOUR INSTALLATION OF THE SOFTWARE.
 
DURING THE INSTALLATION PROCESS, YOU WILL BE PROMPTED TO INSTALL THE SOFTWARE, Winamp Remote, Winamp Toolbar, the Winamp Orgler application and the eMusic icon AND YOU WILL BE PROMPTED TO CHANGE SOME SETTINGS IN YOUR COMPUTER.  You will have a choice whether to install the software and whether some settings will be changed on your computer. You will also have a choice whether Winamp reports anonymous usage statistics to us,which we use to improve Winamp. When Winamp Remote starts, it will automatically scan your computer for audio files and create a list of those files, which will be used to enable the remote service. This version of Winamp Remote will automatically create a report for Nullsoft.
 
IF YOU OPT TO INSTALL THE EMUSIC PROMOTIONAL ICON, YOU CONSENT TO THE DOWNLOAD AND INSTALLATION OF ONE OR MORE ICONS ON YOUR COMPUTER'S DESKTOP THAT LINK TO INFORMATION ABOUT THE ICONS, SOFTWARE OR EMUSIC SERVICE AND/OR A REGISTRATION PAGE FOR EMUSIC'S INTERNET BASED MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION BASED SERVICE AND/OR OTHERWISE PROVIDE PERIODIC REMINDERS TO YOU IN THE FORM OF "POP-UP" NOTICES ON YOUR COMPUTER'S DESKTOP."

I tried it for a few minutes then hunted down everything having to do with "WinAmp" and "Nullsoft" and trashed them...

Just downloaded the winamp for mac. Used it for a few days now.
The version is not final. On my mac the music plays but you can't see it in the actual list.
Now my overall opinion about Winamp.
I used it on windows for many years and and I preferred it over the iTunes.
Now here comes the hard part:
THE FUCKING WINAMP FOR MAC LOOKS E X A C T L Y THE SAME AS ITUNES.
What's the fucking point of making the winamp available for mac if it looks EXACTLY the same as iTunes ???????????
It annoys me to bits.
I loved the Big bento interface.
WHAT THE FUCK IS IN THEIR HEADS??????

I support your idea, I've also used Winamp on windows before coming to the mac.
I also loved the bento interface and functionality of Winamp and what to see it on the mac not an entirely diferent version of the player.

It works on my Mac (MBP with 10.6.8) without crashing on startup. The custom drawn interface feels a bit slow when dragging around the Winamp window (compared to other Windows).
While it shares the name with its Windows counterpart, it doesn’t share most of the fantastic features Winamp is known for. This early beta only can import your music from folders or iTunes and sync it with the Winamp mobile verion on an Android smartphone. It can also play back music on your Mac. You can manage simple (not Smart) Playlists like in iTunes and use the common player controls (pause, playback, volume, etc.)
There is no converter, there are no plugins for obscure or legacy audio formats, no visualizer, no virtual soundcard (write files to disks) only a very simple Player with playlists and a device sync (not tested).
If it’s that what you have searched all the time, then Winamp may be your tool of choice. Those searching for an simple non iTunes mp3 player should try Vox.

While it was nice to see Winamp again (as someone who switched to the Mac over ten years ago), I won’t use it in its current development state as I don’t need the Android sync. But maybe Winamp evolves to something really useful.

Keep up the work.

Winamp - 'the' Windows player now for OS X.
Must be a joke, and it truly is.
It crashes on startup!

long time no see...
i always like winamp on windows, and to see it in mac is great news!
But I have been experiencing one problem:
I setup a watch folder to update the library automatically, but when I change the place of one folder, it will duplicate the entries of those files that reside inside that folder in the library.
