Running Winamp with my primary WiMP11 setup would be a bad idea, I think.
You won’t have any problem if you’re running Winamp in MSC mode. With MTP, worst case is Winamp will crash at startup if your player is connected, but it won’t mess up anything on your computer. And it seems like it’s not always a problem with MTP. I was trading posts with someone in another thread the other day who was surprised to hear that there was any confilct between WMP11 and Winamp in MTP mode, as he’d been using it for a while without problem.
In any case, MM is also an excellent choice. Very powerful and great syncing functions. I use both, but prefer Winamp’s UI, usability and customizability.
BTW, FLAC and Vorbis decoding and FLAC encoding are included with the Winamp install. The Vorbis encoder is a plugin you can download from the Winamp Plugin site (it’s free).
