In Win-amp version 2.71 if you double click inside the credits screen it turns the credits off and just leaves the effect... makes it look more like a hidden AVS (or more like the effect is supposed to be their..un-obstructed :-) )

This "hidden" avs works only when the spectrum analyzer is turned on... When you're watching the credits and the visualization, click twice on your little visualization window where the spectrum analyzer is, so that you turn it off. Now, it doesnt react to music.

if you choose oscilliscope (or click the box on winamp that reacts with music) the ball will beat to the music!!!

turning off the credits also improves the framerate (shown in the bottom left corner in grey)

You probably this, but if you read the credits, such names as "Tag" from "Tag's Trance Trip" fame appears, as does Shawn Fanning, the creator of Napster (Why didn't Napster use Winamp, cos its better then the decoder in Napster...) and Radiohead, ah well, the "egg" is cool...

No, it does only REACT to music. But it does move while the music is off!

Yes, it does react to music. Watch the spectrum analyzer, then watch the speaker-like thing in the middle of the room in the credits. Every time the analyzer spikes, the speaker-thing beats (like a speaker).

This is really cool. I always wondered what the point of the rings was, and now I know.

The spectrum visualization works on v2.80, but the oscillating visualization doesn't look too great, it just looks like the sphere is trying to bounce but ends up choppy looking. Maybe it's my computer, I'm not sure. To turn on the spectrum analyzer, press Alt + O, and then select Spectrum Analyzer at the top of the new screen and then click Close. To view the credits, click the lightning icon next to the repeat button and then click on the credits tab. And voila, play your music. By the way, to toggle the credits off, on v2.80, just double click the credits screen. To turn them on again, double click the credits screen.

it still works in winamp 5.111 but it is an easter egg because i start installing winamp 5.0 and up without avs because uses winamp´s half installation space and you can do this: press left mouse button twice and words gone then press right button and ther youll have a fullscreen easter egg. note you can have full screen with or without credits.

It's true. There are a group of circular rings in the center... the move to the beat of the music. Not really an easter egg, but still pretty cool.

Pretty cool! I couldn't figure out what the circle was in the first place, but I knew it meant something. I do recommend everyone to do this Easter Egg with a high-speed CPU(like a Pen-III or an Athlon). I can't even get 10 fps on my Pen-II 233mhz PC! And I also got the double click thing working in Winamp 2.7(although mine has an Japanese support module installed).

Okay, fella's, I've come to clear all your minds of doubt and make you believe in my true genius! Ready? When you turn on WinAmp's spectrum analyzer, the rings do their funky little dance. When you turn on the oscilliscope, the ball does it's crazy throbbing thing, and when you have nothing running, they both just spin around and do their default little thing. I don't really think this would be qualified as an egg, per say, because it doesn't take any secret clicks or moves to get to it. You just have to be a little smarter than the throbbing ball. Thank you, you've been great.

This easter egg also works on Winamp 2.91. There is also another hidden feature for this egg. At least in 2.91, if you double right-click the AVS, it will go full-screen. To get out of that, just single mouse click. In this version the rings will respond with either the oscilliscope or spectrum analyzer. The effect will be different. The ball will not respond. There will be no effect if neither is selected.
