I think i'm more curious to the statistics of the beta, like how many developers it has/had from 5.666-5.8, are there any left, when was the beta completed for legal and when it was submitted for review, etc.

Current status of Winamp 5.8: 1/5/2017

All beta tester have a copy of v5.8, not sure how many we are, but 10 to 15 at least. For the date as when it was sent to legal department take Egg's tweets / posts as reference (around october 2016?)

But how many developers are there? Are they employees, contractors, contractors in india, or just people doing it in their free time for the love and community.

I think I am more curious about the status of Winamp in radionomy's view and the team behind winamp currently (outside of the beta testers).

Can't say much, but it's all kinda already said actually, current state now AFAIK is the same as in:

Yeah, I figured as much, guess I kinda hoped for an update and/or progress.

shouldn't be necessary anymore now that mp3's last patents have expired.

Hey, I'm just trying to find something positive to say.

Just build a wall around your whole country and put a roof on top, but make sure it's air-tight. Then you can pollute all you want.
Don't worry, God won't let you suffocate.

Just made my postings with a link to an article in German about this expiration of these last patents in Twitter and Google+.

On the many music-websites I have uploads of my own music as MP3, WAV, WMV, never uploaded them as WMA or FLAC.

What's about FLAC as streaming-format for SHOUTcast Radio in Winamp some day?...

Hi,

I'm trying to get Winamp for Mac, but when I try to open the application it will not let me check off the terms and conditions box. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm not one of these negative people and I do have some hope that Winamp will return. However you have to wonder what Radionomy are doing with Winamp. I sometimes get the feeling that they only really wanted the technologies like SHOUTcast and hope they haven't just purchased Winamp to let it die. It's great to see people still love, use and support Winamp and I hope Radionomy see this and realise what they have.

Obviously I have no idea what the legal issues are and it might be not Radionomy that is causing the delay but I kind of feel they have put themselves in this position and caused a lot of speculation that could easily have been avoided if they had kept everyone in the loop.

I'm so confused because I downloaded file APK so that I can enjoy the game I like without feeling nervous of being regional blocked, BUT...after I finished downloading, I'm stuck in finding it in my phonne?
Can you tell me?
By the way, I want to find something that prevents me from being regional blocked by Google play?
Recommend me, ok?
