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.

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).

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 wouldn't doubt it... to be honest I wonder how long it is going to take before people start getting fed up with the number of spammers coming and posting. I know the mods are working hard to keep this place clean, but that doesn't stop them from posting on a thread, which causes everyone subscribed to that thread to get an email, and people will start unsubscribing and then eventually forget about the forums all together.

They need to add captcha or something to posting.

example attached, not sure why that account hasn't been deleted/banned yet

I've suggested they use the Stop Forum Spam plugin for the forum but its fell on deaf ears several times..

Its in use on another forum I use and it keeps 99.8% of them away.

For whatever reason they even removed some of the anti spam provisions that were in place, such as not allowing new users to post links.

As for mods, they're just volunteers who signed up to moderate discussions, not to clean up a dying forum. I don't think it's disrespectful to admit they aren't as active as they used to be either.

It's all part of their master plan...
1. Lessen spam restrictions on forums
2. Let spammers invade and annoy real users
3. Watch active members drop like flies
4. Move shoutcast forums section over to radionomy forums and shutdown winamp forums due to "spam"
5. ???
6. Profit

I think if this were truly dead, someone would have said something by now. I'm hopeful the legal team will give their blessing on 5.8 and we can finally start using it.

There are very much new threads with spam in Winamp & SHOUTcast Forums > Winamp > Winamp Discussion very often, mostly 3 pages long, and I have seen them also today. Fortunately they are away now, and of course they should be deleted.

Since 9th February 2017 a stalker / huntsman makes a lot of problems for me in the forums (he had stolen my text in another thread and posts it again and again). I have mentioned this problem also in "The day of reckoning for adobe flash moves closer".

The skeleton on the parkbank... Hopefully it will not become true, at least not for all Winamp Fans on this planet. And whatever will happen to me, the Winamp World should still continue...

Yeah, I reported it last night that the forums were getting bombarded with spam. I am blown away by how much spam was generated in a short period. Something really needs to be done to prevent this kind of stuff but I don't think anything can be done :/

Maybe at the rate that spam is coming in now something will be done, but all us normal users can do is report or complain (and half the time it seems my reports are ignored).

If this level of spam keeps up, the forums will def die

On a side note, a lot of the code in the forums seem to still reference aol stuff, so yeah, hardly seem like any effort to upgrade the forums.
