Plug-in allows users to sync iPods to Winamp

Winamp iPod plug-in

A plug-in called ml_iPod allows Windows iPod users to and manage music collections in Winamp instead. Justin Frankel, creator of Winamp and Gnutella, developed ml_iPod, but programming was taken over by U.K. computer science student Will Fisher. Fisher and other developers have added the ability to sync multiple iPods with Winamp, create smart playlists and copy songs from an iPod to a computer. iTunes prevents users from copying songs from an iPod to a hard drive in an effort to reduce music piracy. "A lot of the feedback I get is people thanking me for freeing them from iTunes," said Fisher. "It shows the dissatisfaction people have with iTunes."
