Could help and I could be wrong but I think Winamp is more widespread as far as audio playback is concerned, so I'd prefer capable coding hands devoted to this first.
If the Ubuntu devs are doing their work properly, all you would need to do is sudo apt-get build-dep insert VLC package name here && sudo apt-get -b install insert VLC package name here for it to build.The source files will probably be left where you ran that command.PS. You'd need to have a "deb-src" line in /etc/apt/sources.list as well.

And Winamp are after all supported, even if the plugin lacks tagging capabilities. And then there's the points that unlike Winamp: it's open source it's available for MS Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, The BSD's, Solaris etc. etc.
Good points, hope either David or some other skilled coder(s) can find the time to take care of both.Allow me to add that I usually prefer players which use external codecs for obvious rerasons like being able to use the latest version without having to wait for the app to integrate it and being abel to chose the decoder myself when there are choices, that said VLC is a very good program.
Gabriel's suggestion is brilliant IMO!
Some open source projects are these days spreading rapidly among the "common folks"
I noticed today that a new test build for Windows is available that supports WavPack.
Decoders:- Native WMV3 / VC-1 support- WMA Speech support (through binary codecs)- VP5/VP6 - Flash Video support- The True Audio Lossless codec support- WavPack support- Improved H.264 support (interlaced, speed improvements etc)

can anyone confirm that it has support for lossy WavPack files? i tried an svn version of ffdshow-tryouts which has recently implemented a WavPack decoder and i could not get lossy files to play. lossless ones are fine though.
