    As per 20th of December, WinAmp will be no more. :(

    Source

    Some may love it or hate it. For me, I used it from the beginning and I can start looking for a replacement (Foobar2000? AIMP?).
    What would happen to Shoutcast?

    :(


    Was my favorite for a long loong time. Well it still will be, 5.66 looks stable enough..


    I just found new great plugins (maiko wasapi.dll and dsp enhancer v0.17)and finally discovered how to manually tweak skins *(xfi skin mod):D

    started using it in 1998 until about 5-6 years ago when it just became a bloated/awkward to use mess, i dont know if it changed after that but before that it was my favourite compact and tidy mp3 player for PC.

    Now i just use XBMC on my media centre and crappy WMP on my gaming PC.

    Shame its going but i can see why.

    I used to use Winamp all the time back in the early to mid 2000's. From what I remember it became kind of bloated. Still, it always sucks to see a small company go under.
