CounterAmp is a small, dockable program that allows you to control Winamp 2.x without having direct access to it. It was created for gamers that play Counter-Strike and listen to music at the same time. You can control what song plays, or if you want to pause the music for a moment while you listen for someone sneaking up on you.
Winamp now supports most, if not all of this functionality directly using the Nullsoft Global Hotkeys plugin. Due to this, CounterAmp has been relegated to the historical archive.

  • Dock in the screen corners
  • Three modes for more desktop real-estate or more information/controls
  • Hides in the system tray, reduces taskbar clutter
  • Control most aspects of Winamp 2.x & 5.x (play, pause, stop, next, previous, fast forward, rewind, volume, "jump" dialog, skip ±10 songs, show current song)
  • Works when beneath other applications and can still control Winamp if it is minimized
  • Display the currently playing song in a dialog in the middle of your screen that goes away after ~3seconds
