I found radionomy office using street view. Now we just need someone to make a giant winamp llama have it hanging from a noose outside their the building. Guerilla tactics may be the only way to save winamp.

No... An actual live lama getting its ass whipped until they agree to do something to solve the impasse.

Now THAT is a great idea.

Officer: Excuse me sir, why are you beating this animal?

Alrock: It's a Llama, and I am whipping its ass because I want an update to software that I use.

At this point, the mp3 format might be dead by the time this is ready.

Honestly, if they had a kickstarter to get funding, they could hire a proper software engineer.

If we outlawed pianos, only outlaws would be pianists.

What they need is to pick up and continue developing from Winamp v2.95 — the last version that was still salvageable. Original Winamp was dead when version 3.x came out. And from my, regular user's perspective, Winamp 5.x has absolutely nothing in common with the original Winamp that we all used to like.

Winamp 2.95 was indeed a great version of the software it served me well when I used it

I was a latecomer to Winamp I only started at 2.91

I used it to play files I'd downloaded from AudioGalaxy (I know that's going back 19 years now)

Uh, Winamp 5.0 was Winamp 2.x w/ modern skin support. You do know you can still use the classic skin right?

The 2.9x versions in particular already have a lot in common with 5.0 (library, video, cd ripping), too much in fact for some traditionalists who at the time chose to stick with 2.81 or even older versions (never mind that you could always choose not to install those features).

(And of course the 2.9 branch is newer than Winamp3 etc yadda yadda.)

If I remember correctly 2.95 & 5.0 Alpha was practically identical.

It seems silly to me to simply give up hope. There might not be a lead developer working on the project, but that doesn't mean it's dead. Radionomy paid a good chunk of cash for it. While it wouldn't be the first time a company has paid money for something, only to never use it, it's silly to theink an small company like Radionomy would do that.

Don't get me wrong. Things look bleak. That doesn't mean nothing will ever come of this, or that Winamp is dead. I've got faith that this will get sorted, and a new version will happen.

Radionomy bought nullsoft for shoutcast, winamp just came with it.

Hey guys. Just signed up to ask what the latest winAMP I could safely use is? I used it for years on my studio PC to play audio coz it's a neat little player that did everything I wanted and didn't fill up my screen. Plus it didn't ask me to sign up to new crap all the time. It was just the perfect little audio player which is exactly what I need now. I don't want new features, I just want what I had before, really, but now for Windows 10 x64.

I know of a piece of software that doesn't ask you to constantly sign up for crap you don't need (Hint: See my Signature) plus for me its the perfect audio player as it crossfades really well...

Are there any prerequisiites I need to play simple audio files? The usual formats (FLAC, WAV, MP3 etc).

BTW, Nice site, but it baffles my why you would promote a player in this way if you're not getting paid.

Winamp still going strong here on Windows 7 but I'm starting to wonder if there are security bugs we should worry about? I'm sure there are if the hackers wanted to find them, it's another reason they should get serious about an update.

Anyone trying to hack something will want a big target. The pool of Winamp users is far, far too small.

Honestly I think the biggest security flaw is the browser because it relies on IE, so if you keep your system up to date with patches you should be fine. The only major security flaw in the recent version is running a bad .flv (though winamp is best left for music only imo)

It's probably not something that we need to stop using Winamp over, unless there's a huge IE-type security hole opening up our data to everyone, in which case it should be fixed if Radionomy knows about it.

VLC player does play shoutcast/icecast stations and they keep their player up to date but for me Winamp is still the best.

Hello Winamp users... From time to time, I check on this thread without even a glimmer of hope that a new release of Winamp will be announced. Winamp might be dead, but it is not vaporware. I have run 5.65 on Windows 8.1 and 10 without any problems. Security bugs were never a concern of mine. However, if there were any, turning off my internet connection will solve them. I've also been enjoying installing 2.95 on my virtual machines running Windows 95 or 98. If a new version of Winamp comes out, would we even want it? I love the Winamp that I "grew up" with. So, I will continue to check this thread. BTW, I love the idea of getting a live llama and whipping its ass over at Radionomy.
