The Winamp faithful now have one more reason to hang onto the venerable multimedia player--and update it. Version 5.58 of the software includes official support for the new WebM video format. For those who don't keep up with the fast-paced world of online video streaming formats, WebM is an attractive format for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that it's completely open source (read: free). In addition, the format lets you stream high-quality content with a minimal footprint in that it requires no plug-ins, unlike with Flash video--which currently dominates Web streaming. WebM will most likely be integral to the advancement of HTML5 video.
