View Full Version : A Toast for Winamp
10th August 2004, 01:11
I just realized that I routinely use Winamp to watch cable TV, watch videos on my PC, listen to music locally and over the net, have a steady stream of The Simpsons, Sienfeild, and NewsRadio to my living room, and display amazing visuals that dance to the tunes coming from my stereo.
I decided I should take a moment to thank everyone involved with the development of the best media player available.
I've used this player since '97 and watched it evolve into this powerful open source package.
Thank you Nullsoft and everyone who writes AVS, pluggins, and skins for the most used piece of software on my PC.

winamp isn't open source is it?
10th August 2004, 01:16
i didn't think so
10th August 2004, 01:18
that's what i was thinking. linux is open source. winamp however is not.

Maybe “open source” was a poor choice of words. I was just referring to the fact that anyone can add to Winamp to make it better. This is one of the reasons why I use Winamp so often.

He meant that, like, you can freely code plug-ins and stuff for it.
