I have been using a Winamp ASIO out plugin.  Is it possible to use in XMPlayer?  If so how, does it need to be recompiled or other?

No. XMPlay supports Winamp input plugins, but no other ones. You should use XMPlays own ASIO output plugin.

Yes I do use XMPlayers plugin because I have no other choice.....it sound good, but there is a ASIO plugin for Winamp by Otachan that sounds fantastic [in Winamp].  Just wanted to hear how is sounds in XMPlayer.

I guess only input plugin support is by design....

It is by design. XMPlay uses its own output methods. There's really no reason to have to use another output method, to be honest. A properly designed output method, whether it is WaveOut, DirectSound, or ASIO, will sound "fantastic" no matter what program it is coded for. :P

Well, you can also use SOME winamp DSP plugins in xmplay (no "er" here! :P) too. I'm personally fond of EQ by Nevi ;)

Please dont get me wrong...XMPlay does sound freakin fantastic....I love it.  BUT I would like to be able to at least try some of my favorite ASIO plugins to tweak the sound as best to suit my set up.

The theory that one best method will suit all as best is actually not true in audio.  Its really a synergy that makes each persons setup unique and best for them.
