Of all the players I have tried, GoneMAD is far and away the best player on Android. You can do a lot with customization on it. I used to see the equalizer change on restart once in a while but that hasn't happened in some time. If you make sure to hit the save button to save the preset I've had better luck.

Winamp still plays 99 percent of mainstream audio formats and it works under Windows 10 just fine...It also works under Linux using Wine just fine...About the only thing that really needs done (Other than those that feel it needs some sort of cosmetic update) is to get it to work on Android...If there was an Android version of WINE then it may be possible to get it in it's current form to run under Android as well since my understanding of Android is it's just Google's customized version of Linux..But I'm not a programmer so I don't know what the real differences are...Since I'm not a smartphone user the Android thing is not big for me...I do have an Android media box and have JETAUDIO PLUS installed on that which actually is quite good...Unfortunately the additional plugins also cost money...I'll probably buy those (eventually)....

The Winamp desktop app (after 19 years) and many of it's plug-ins only work as well as they do because Microsoft must continue to support legacy code as much as possible.

After 2007, AOL decided not to invest in any more major updates of the desktop app's core code. A relatively brief effort (during 2010 and 2011) was made to port Winamp to other platforms. A major attempt to fix several 'bugs' in the Winamp desktop app's core code was completed in 2013.

Winamp's current owner (sold to Radionomy in 2014) seems to have made the same investment decision related to major upgrades. It appears that any major upgrades (or plug-in support) going forward will depend on hacks by clever 3rd party developers.

I started using Winamp in 1998 and have tried many other apps since then. IMO, it is still the best available app (mainly due to it's support of plug-ins) for playing and managing many digital music formats on the Windows desktop.

There was a demonstration of running wine under android, but in terms of having it run on a phone platform I don't believe it would function that well because winamp was made for a desktop platform.

Yes but with the proliferation of Android Media Boxes that would justify it. On a big screen TV using an android media player that's not an issue. (Using a wireless keyboard and mouse that is as that's still the easiest way to maneuver)...
Oh yes...It would need to be able to run on a non-Intel/AMD CPU as well (As I don't think WINE is going to fix that)...

I have my presets saved the thing is that it changes the eq to the next one on the list or flat without showing the change by changing the current eq name. I have a workaround though, just duplicate your preferred eq and name it in a way that it shows up next on the list. Shame they don't have an iOS app, switched phones and I'm stuck without it

Can you not try and get Radionomy to open source Winamp? It's getting clear that if they had ANY plans in the product or getting money from it they aleady would as the original post was around three years ago.

again, open source doesn't mean there would be any more development. Though while I could see DrO taking up a lot of it, he is already doing enough even with the source closed.

Radionomy should have reinstated nullsoft prior to AOL shutting it down, because supposedly nullsoft was profitable up until it was shut down, but instead they basically just grabbed the shoutcast code they wanted and stiffed the loyal fans of winamp

AOL did not shutdown Nullsoft. Nullsoft was the very small company that created Winamp and they shut themselves down many years ago. After Winamp was sold to AOL in 1999, most of the original developers moved on to other things rather than work for AOL. Basically, Nullsoft should now be thought of as a brand name. A lot of the core code still in Winamp is updated or patched code that Nullsoft created and released in 1997.

AOL made money with Winamp mostly thru click-on ads. In the US, some of these ads were in Winamp itself. Most of the ads were on websites that Winamp linked to thru it's online services and on the Winamp home website itself (websites sponsored/hosted directly or indirectly by AOL). Some money was also made thru selling the Winamp Pro version.

You are correct, though sometimes I get confused when nullsoft really shutdown because of all the changes that happened in AOL (and I believe it is still reflected in the about screen w/ a copyright).

I guess Nullsoft unofficially ended when JF left in 2004. I dunno, all this crap still confuses me. Should 5.8 ever be released it would be interesting to see the credits because for all I know, the only person that appears left is DJ Egg.

Not sure what the US has to do with anything, Vivendi is a french multinational company, and radionomy is based out of belgium, and do you honestly believe that they can't find a way? Huh... guess that's why nobody ever gets busted for using copyrighted material across countries....

Even DrO got a legal letter for just using the winamp name

DrO isn't the only one who's had a friendly warning from Radionomy for using the name or distributing old shoutcast/winamp software.
