mid-to-late 2003 as based on your spelling of things, you should be trying to find / use a 2.9x release as that's what has the product name with a capital 'A'.

musicf8 has answered your other question (though the patched version is from November 2014).

DrO, I am using WINAMP (lol) V5.666 Build 3512 (x86) - Nov 26, 2013.
The question I asked was: what is the latest version? You obviously do not know DrO because you are more interested in parsing my words than addressing my very specific questions.

DrO IS Winamp. There isn't much he doesn't know about the product.
He was also being sarcastic as I was.
WinAmp hasn't been used as the name for many years.
At least try to get the name correct..Winamp

And please take 5 mins to look around before you ask questions that have been answered 100's of times.
The download area is here with all the latest versions

The question I asked was: what is the latest version? You obviously do not know DrO because you are more interested in parsing my words than addressing my very specific questions.
the first post in this thread, the download link on the main site, my signature, my patched build and the replies you've received from other users clearly point you at where and how to get the current version and to check what the current version is (which you are not using for the record).

I was trying to be light-hearted for those who pay attention to the finer details (i.e. those who I'd hope have a bit of knowledge about Winamp over the years) and how it's naming has changed. hence the reply you got (even though I've clearly noted that musicf8's also answers the question which you appear to have skimmed over). so technically all of the responses have been correct and answer your question (despite being noted in the first post of this thread).

oh well, I try and have a giggle over something and it's just not taken that way *shrugs*

Thanks DrO for your assistance. Sorry that I misunderstood that you were being light-hearted. I'm not an expert in WinAmp but I have been using it since the 90's. WinAmp is important to me because I'm a vocalist and I use it everyday to play backing tracks. So I love WinAmp and have been worried about the future of the program and it's compatibility with my PaceMaker and MP3+G plug-in's. I hope you can let me know more about that as you are the expert here. Thanks, Steve

afaik they should still work with the current release and if they aren't, then you have to get their respective authors to fix things (as it's the plug-ins that generally have to maintain compatibility). i have no idea of what will / will not happen with future Winamp releases (my knowledge is only as good as the last version I was involved with).

Juanus - your picking details out of a reply ... It matters little with whom will have contribution towards the release of Winamp vNext. Ultimately, DrO is and always will be Winamp here and now for us in the states.

I imagine there is much happening that includes many levels of details that are beyond the scope of a forum post or warrant a reply to any one individual when their likely is still a mass of tangled negotiables.

Winamp will come back...it will be good and I believe strongly DrO will have his input; I'd like a crack at designing something for it...but, I suck as skinning/theming.

That may be true, but it may be merely wishful thinking. Nothing lasts forever.
Without any communication from Radionomy, with DrO's puzzling comments, and with the passage of time, another release of Winamp becomes more unlikely.

Thank God my Winamp V5.666 Build 3512 (x86) - Nov 26, 2013 is working with Windows 8.1 and good to hear ryerman confirms upcoming Windows 10 works.

I was hoping a new release of Winamp would come with improvementss to the media library in two ways:
1. Playlists that have the normal columns as in the Local Library view.
2. Playlists with collapsible sub-folders same as in Windows Explorer.

but doesn't it seem bizarre, if you're right, that the forum remains? & that radionomy would buy it [winamp] and not put out at least one version of it with their brand on it? esp since it sounded like DrO had done most of what was needed to remove and replace AOL / gracenote / etc components?

I really think this whole thing has been badly handled by radionomy, to the point where I question if any of them have any brains at all, or understanding of the commodity they now own; and yet I still think we will eventually get a new ver of winamp, a radionomy branded one, ...eventually. as to when, its anyone's guess. the arrival of win10 this month would give them a great opportunity to do it.

I really do hope it happens though, b/c from what I could tell DrO had put a lot of good work towards a "next" version.

Win10 compat - broken on 10166

HI Guys

It was all clear sailing with Winamp 5.6 up untill I installed the latest build of Windows 10.

I keep getting direct output errors and a frozen app window.

Oh well it was nice while it lasted: +- 15 years.

Just tried out Clementine it seems alright enough for now till Winamp releases a new version (wishfull thinking? :P )

then maybe you should provide the error details that are being reported in the thread you've already got about it... http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=381520 as those error codes can allow anyone else to try to look-up what the error code means and then use that to determine the cause (not that anyone else so far on these forums appears to be having issues with the Win 10 betas).

or you can switch to a different output plug-in or do what (ironically) you chided me for saying (but never clarified _what_ post of mine you were referring to) and just use something else if that's your desire.

I'm going to follow up on that thread you mentioned.

FYI I have tried just about every other player and this new clementime player and I still find Winamp is my favorite by far and it has specific features I need.

So... its back to old school Winamp for me!

Thanks for the suggestions DrO.

I had a short visit at https://www.radionomy.com/ and here is the "about":

"Represented in the Radionomy Group of companies are Radionomy, SHOUTcast, TargetSpot, Hotmixradio, and Winamp. Radionomy Group has a global footprint with operations in the United States, France, Spain and Germany."

They have a download Winamp link to http://www.radionomygroup.com/en/companies/winamp/ that takes you to the Winamp forum DJ Egg post http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=374929 dated 29th January 2014, 11:51.

I see no evidence on the Radionomygroup website indicating any progress completed on Winamp. I have seen no reachout from the Radionomygroup to the thousands of Winamp users to communicate their intent going forward.

So what has Radionomygroup actually done with Winamp since acquiring it from AOL?


It appears that Radionomy Group's main interest is LIMITED to claiming the thousands of Winamp users and directing them to their online radio industry.

In total contrast to that, I believe that we longtime Winamp users care more about the future of the Winamp mp3 player and the awesome plugins.

It appears the last thing the Radionomy Group has done was:
"Radionomy acquires Winamp and SHOUTcast from AOL winamp" as per their timeline at http://www.radionomygroup.com/en/about-us/#

I see no evidence of Winamp software development and pending software releases on Radionomy's timeline.

Pretty much, we have been in the dark about it all.. but i'm just taking each day as it comes. Winamp works, that's all that matters.

Do I want to see Winamp constantly be improved on? of course, but eh, it works now and I doubt it will fail on me any time soon, maybe when 32-bit programs get the boot.

first few things off the top of my head...(this is tongue-in-cheek)
  • they've maintained the forum so people can comment / complain about things as much as they want
  • they've kept the desktop plug-in API super-stable and not broken any 3rd party plug-ins as updates to Winamp always does (which should be a bonus for all of the 'save Winamp' developers who were going to invigourate skin / plug-in development...)
  • they've not interfered with the community so they [the community] can just keep doing what they want to do with Winamp be it creating skins / plug-ins or just doing nothing at all

Radionomy communication = zero.
Off to a flying start ONE YEAR AND A HALF later.
There are no excuses.

As every day passes my respect for the company just goes down and down.
And if they can't see what they are doing to fans out there then they are just completely blind.

[sorry Darren, I have to disagree with you on this one..]
Actually.. By removing the ability to upload new skins and plug-ins (be it by not "updating" the old Web or even clarifying what will happen with it..) they are pretty much killing the last bit of will any skinner or coder could have had.
I know there weren't so many, but for the skinning side the old Winamp.com actually made a big difference in downloads / reaching compared to alternatives (DeviantArt, 1001, etc). And the plug-ins aspect was directly forced to be headed to the forums.. which most Winamp users don't want to use / see it deprecated..

I understand why the interest is clearly on SHOUTcast , but it is worrying seeing so little done with Winamp (and I'm not even talking about development!)

PS / EDIT ; I forgot the tongue-in-cheek meaning, I've searched now.. My POV still stands though haha

my reply was tongue-in-check... so nothing fits that pattern of development (and is why I clearly stated what that reply was meant as - since blinky sarcasm lights are not an option on this forum).


on a serious note, i'm more than aware of people's view points that why should they work on things (skins / plug-ins) if there's no apparent active development of the client software.

though the counter argument is that if people want updates / new features so badly then the design of Winamp as-is more than allows for them to re-create / implement the means needed. it was hammered home that there were 100s of developers wanting to do things and i've seen nothing of it - why? because all of the ones I could tell only did webdev and that is not what is wanted for most of the client development for the desktop client that could be done.


the thing with the old Winamp site comes down to the old AOL site being a complete mess to the point that it could never have just been transferred and with so many broken plug-ins (less of an issue with the skins), you'd be looking at a whole new site and re-validation of _all_ plug-ins just to work out what is 'good' or what is not, etc. not that it matters with the archive sites that popped up and just blindly provide those plug-ins irrespective of working ok or not.


either way, I wouldn't expect any press releases, etc until there is something to actually use (irrespective of what people think about that matter) and that's all I know re:Winamp.

Radionomy Killed Winamp

It's great that we still have a means to download Winamp but lets face it, it's been more than a year since Radionomy took over and still we have no no Winamp web site. I thought it was bad when AOL took over... but this is just ridiculous!!

I wouldn't say its dead. Just in a really long coma. Maybe they're looking for alternatives to Moodagent since it was acquired by Universal Media Group and exfm which was acquired by Rhapsody; although they're not really essential services for Winamp and alternatives may never be found (Radionomy may be creating alternatives to these and other services for an All Radionomy Winamp, just speculating). OR they're looking for new ways to whip the lamas ass.

We see absolutely no activity from Radionomy concerning Winamp.

No one sees the activity going on inside a beehive just bees flying in and out and the hive getting bigger, but when you open it there's honey inside and bees lots n lots of bees. Companies keep secrets so I'm not surprised, we'll probably stay sitting and waiting until Winamp stops working altogether. Let's just hope it doesn't end up like Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in Connecticut literally shutting down overnight without a single word to anyone, not even the employees.

So people would stop using a program that does the job because it's future is uncertain? Pontiac (junky towards the end), Oldsmobile (junky towards the end) and Saturn (steaming pile) are long gone yet people still drive their cars. If people care enough about something or it works for them without issue they'll stay, Radionomy might be betting on that in this transition/evaluation phase Winamp is going through; or their still trying to figure out how to keep Winamp funded during and after development.

It's true that you can find a automobile repairman for classic cars and even junk cars.
Your analogy goes wrong GorillaCat because you cannot find an operating system repairman or software driver repairman in the yellow pages. LOL
