Rip winamp

So... For the last two years, that I can count on, we have been waiting on a new version of Winamp - since it did state on the website we would get on. I honestly believe winamp is completely gone and there will not be another version released. I would love to see a new version but life is life I guess.... Just wish they wouldn't lead us on lol

We've been waiting over 4 and a Half years now for a new version.

AFAIK The new version is being held up by Radionomy's Legal team

Doesn't the current version still work?
It does all I want it to do so why the big grumble about a new version not being developed?
Cheers

Yes the 5.666 version still works on my Windows10 machine but some of us have moved onto better software Radionomy have let the grass grow far too long

Which better software would that be? I think the best soft is that one which fully satisfies your needs.. (the question then, would be, which needs is Winamp not covering for you?)

Erm! Its in my Forum Signature.... Winamp wasn't crossfading like I wanted it to I don't get silence or bad crossfades with this software i'm using for my music.

crossfader plugin can solve that issue.

Ok have to admit the plugin can't do exactly what playout systems can but it's doing it's job if you only play music in Winamp.

@DJ-Garybaldy: My bad, I thought we were playing the Winamp vs Aimp vs Foobar game . Definitely for what you need your soft is way better.

If you mean the SQR crossfade plugin it kept crashing Winamp after a couple of hours when I initially tried way back in 2003

I have tried all the crossfade plugins for Winamp and not one of them gave a smooth transition between songs

Only with foobar's creator.
I remember some IRC drama, and then the French guys who used to work for Nullsoft made a clone/hack called gaybar2000.

And we'll be waiting a lot longer for it as there's no lead developer on the case...

Man.. this is discouraging. So much potential for Winamp. I actually preferred MP3Toys for more than a decade, but it seems Winamp is suffering the same fate; no news and no involvement from the 'devs'.

It's still the best alternative to anything else out there for those who prefer a DIY approach to managing and interacting with their music collections, but it could be so much better!

I think what we want is better windows integration (Win10 (x64) and better plugin compatibility e.g. working song mixed/fader
