Winamp & Foobar2k are not major media players.  I think around 70% of
all users either use Windows Media Player or the RealOne player.
Neither of which can play Vorbis streams, and this is a major hurdle in
the acceptance of Vorbis streaming.  I keep telling people that plugins
are coming, but they seem to be taking forever.
