There is a known weakness in Kodi with viewing the songs node, or adding a large number of songs to the current playlist. It is nothing to do with the database or where the files are located, but down to how Kodi maniuplates data in internal memory. A solution requires a major redesign, but people are looking into doing that.

For myself I still question why anyone wants so many songs in a list, I find it better to choose the music I want to listen to at the time. Kodi music library is far better at that than Winamp. But if Winamp does what you need then great.
Well, good to hear people are looking into it.

Why I have such large albums or playlist shouldn't matter but I'll tell you.
I have all my 80's and 90's songs in seperated folders and I like to listen to them all randomly without having to choose myself. Winamp also has the nice option to remove the played songs from the playlist.

For now Winamp will still be my number one but one day I hope Kodi can work as Winamp does and Kodi takes it as an example. Some Winamp plugins are a mushave for Kodi than as well.
