Funny all this people demanding new things, while i think winamp is one of the best programs out there. Sure i have had my fair share of problems with the plugins as well.
But i do not think a massive change at the looks of the programs will make it any better.
I hope the new owners have a good plan and keep alot of the good things winamp has or at least make sure i do not loose that what i like about the program.
some want allways new things but people like me want it to work well which is in my view has a bigger impact than looks. Look at m$ since win vista we got alot of versions and all kinda the same os with mostly a different look.

I used to have WinAmp, used to use it all the time. Then version 3 came out, and it started have virus problems with videos. I deleted 3, and went back to Winamp 2.77 (full). Been using it ever since.

Would like to find the upgraded Winamp that doesn't cut the last character off of each meta tag field.

Didn't realize it's been on an 18 month hiatus. Anyone have version 2.78 or whatever the patch was for that glitch?

I suggest you try the latest patched version (http://winampplugins.co.uk/Winamp/).

If you only want the features from the 2.x versions, use the custom installation mode and only install those features. If you must use old versions, you can probably find them on the FileHippo web site (or other sites that archive old software). There is no official support for old versions. Use them at your own risk.

Well you can usually see the history of stuff in winamp all the way back to v5.0, but if you want to back further you can either install an older version or check out an archive version of winampheaven.net

is somewhat inconsequential when you're using a version that's from 14+ years ago

so just use the current patched Winamp (as noted by the others above), don't install what you don't need (which would be the whole library feature and modern skins and select the 'lite' install option) and that's a patched Winamp install which is equivalent of 2.x but with all of the fixes and improvements made to it in the time that you've been living in the dark ages of Winamp releases.

Eh? What kind of logic is that ?

If you had a virus, you had a virus. Going back to an earlier version of a piece of software will not remove a virus.

I can't say I've ever had a problem with Winamp cutting the last letter from tags in any of the versions I have tagged with.

Mashups ? Smells like a lot of "Fishy Business" to me.

A virus running Winamp? I have had it for years and never had any such occurrence. Even the version 2 and below. The virus problems will have to do with the website you source your vids. Never had any problem with Winamp cutting the last character off either. Get the latest patched version 5.666 dude

or it was OpenCandy (*) in the installer... or that a number of anti-virus software often flags NSIS installers as viruses when it's not (which would have been much more of an issue back in the Winamp3 era).

(*) dropping that from the 5.66x installers was one of the only good things in stopping Winamp.

Winamp -> StereoTool -> Windows 10 IoT

I would love to see Winamp as an Windows universal application capable of running on Windows 10 IoT on Rasperry Pi 2 B serving as main mediacenter software, capable of playing common video formats in 1080p resolution including subtitling and through HiFiBerry Dac and StereoTools audiophile-level FLAC and APE audio files in 24/94 format.

i'm for this, though I believe it should be focused on music, less video. This would be a great chance for Winamp to provide an application that exceeds the "music app" much like how winamp did it back in the day versus wmp

if Winamp became a universal app, I'm pretty certain that you'd loose all plug-in functionality (not that even if plug-ins could work would they be portable from the existing Windows version to a universal app implementation anyway as they'd have to be changed to work in that sort of system).

though Winamp was never all that great at video and audio is it's strength, which somewhat goes against what you're asking for.

and Windows 10 IoT has a completely different way of providing a UI which Winamp as-is doesn't fit in with, so you'd also have the pain from writing a new UI (i.e. think that all existing skins would not work).

so a nice idea if Winamp was more of a background audio service rather than a user-facing app (as it basically is).

True, but it might be a nice adventure to go on, similar to how you guys made an android app. This could open up a new market on possibly having an app that works on both windows and windows phone.

But i'm just making assumptions, I know DrO has a much better view of Winamp's future than me haha.

WAFA is the best analogy to the universal app suggestion and unless the devs resposible implemented things into it, you pretty much are stuck with just what you get (which was a common issue I remember seeing made against WAFA because it couldn't be expanded like the desktop, but that's more an issue of people's perceptions of what 'Winamp' should do).

related to the suggestion, the coming demise of the Skype app for desktop (going back to pushing the dedicated 'classic desktop' version), I think that speaks volumes for anyone making a decision about what to do regarding Windows program development in that there's still life left in developing for 'classic desktop' (which is what Winamp for Windows falls under, even if it'd need to be pulled kicking and screaming somehow into the modern world and not cling the 90's skinned UI ways that adorn it).

doing that won't work as the service it accessed blocks the feature from Winamp clients (irrespective of the version).

future development

I disagree with you DrO and anyone else with the same opinion.

Asking if the project is still active or when the next update will be, are completely legitimate questions!

The fact that Winamp still works is it did for the last few years doesn't mean it shouldn't look better, have more features, more format support, etc..

Additionally hoping for and asking for a newer version of Winamp should not get the response 'Go use another product' there's not really a helpful response is it? The reason that person asked is because they want to continue using Winamp well into the future.

Personally I've used it for the last 15 years and I still love it but hate seeing projects completely die off in terms of development when told there was going to be a new spark to push things forward... such is life though :P

well that's your view point and whatever one of my posts you're referring to is my view point (which if I've said to use something else is based on comments made at that time against specific cases). and really it's no more different than other users telling others to use Poweramp instead of WAFA whilst still using the desktop version of Winamp.

personally I don't think its wrong to say if its not the right solution for a specific individuals needs to suggest alternatives and I've been very open in that view point for over 12 years on these forums. not that my own views on Winamp's future matter anyway so you can probably just ignore this reply

I am going to download 5.666 but I do wish we had some idea of the Radionomy progress on updating Winamp to remove the stuff they need to remove. I haven't seen it (yet), still looking for it.

Another thing is will Winamp also continue supporting the Android version knowing that there needs to be a few features added on "Protected Phones" due to some settings are not accessible, which in turn Security programs like Samsung KNOX blocks much of the User Settings while some apps are able to access those parts, and that I know the key issue seems to be music Stuttering and need for higher Priority on the CPU just like on like the Windows version so that it won't stutter, also allow Buffer Changes to the memory card to smoothly add better playback, just my 2 cents on it.

I don't need any new features. Hell, I don't need half of the existing ones. If they could just deliver a version 6 compatible with Windows 10, I'd feel reassured that I could still use the program for the foreseeable future. As things stand, one wrong "improvement" from Microsoft is all that stands between us and a dystopian Winamp-less future.

Someone awhile ago posted that Winamp worked on the Windows 10 beta, not sure how in depth their test was but I can assume it was at least functional. I'm unsure if that changed with the beta releases there after.

Thanks for the reply, it's nice to see people contributing to the tread other than the "WE WANT IT NAO" clan and a bunch of juniors like me.

My guess is that Windows 10 will be great and Winamp will make it better

people should be getting build 10162 anyway. and the only issues you'd expect to see with Winamp on Windows 10 are the same as seen when Windows 8.x depending on if there's anything changed with file registration / OS integration (which for the main parts I don't believe Windows 10 has changed compared to Windows 8.x).

Does anyone know if WinAmp will still offer the Internet TV feature? Used to love whiling away afternoons on that baby !

I'm waiting on delivery of my new Windows computer (switched to Apple for a few years, but now I've seen the light again !) and I'm already getting nostalgic and excited about using Winamp again. Trippy skins are my thing

that was dropped from SHOUTcast a while before the sale (lack of content and usage led to that decision) and I'd highly doubt you'll see it back. playback support still exists in the current Winamp version but there's no discovery option which is the bit you're seemingly referring to.
