WinamPassword - Password protection for Winamp

Staff review

Password for Winamp

Allows you to set up a password for Winamp. Works easily enough...just enter in a password, retype it, then the next time you start Winamp, you won't be able to get in without the password. Handy for keeping out those evil conspirators who wish to clutter your playlists with nefarious music. Updated version with minor bug fixes.

Has?o do Winam'apa - To jest To! ?ci?gaj natychmiast, ?aden baran nie b?dzie gra? mp3 bez Twojej wiedzy. - December 28, 2001 by Dariusz D�browski

Good idea but..... - Hmm great idea i thought when i saw WinamPassword for the first time on this page. But know i have tried it and found out that it doesn't work i real life. I still think that the idea is great, but it doesn't take a person, with just some basic computer knowledge, more than 1 minute to remove or find/change the password. And trust me, im no hacker! Of course im not gonna tell anyone how it's done, if anyone actually hasn't got the brai .... ehhhhmmm computerskills to find out for themselfs. And to the people who made WinamPassword. Ever thought about putting in a feature so you can password protect winamp when it's running?? could be great if you don't want your friends from changing away from your favorit song all the time. :) - October 26, 2001 by Andreas Gunersen

I like this - Most of the time it's me playing winamp, but my brother and sister are always messing up the playlist with music that I totally dislike. It's simple, effective and well done. Five stars for UFO Productions!! - August 11, 2001 by Afro Kip

Brothers?????????????/// - Its handy when my brothers are listening. they alway delete my favorite music. - August 8, 2001 by Tijgermug Tijgermugske

Winampassword - it never worked for me when it finished d/l it vanished - August 8, 2001 by Ryan Kruzan

Hope bro's not good with computers - This is a nice plugin. Simple, effective but there is one flaw. A search through my windows registry brings me to a file called UFO Productions. A quick look inside reveals a file with my chosen password as the value. it's hardly a problem since there are easier ways to get rid of it but it bears just thinking about. - July 16, 2001 by Guy John
