Winamp Open Source

In my observation winamp has a wide community of users so making it opensource will help the player becoming more popular. And there is a chance for many flavours of winamp

Why it won't happen ? it will be a great move and also we can expect a linux based solution of winamp which many expected over years.

The owners of Winamp paid for it so are not likely to make it open source.

The closest you will get is WACUP which is open sourcing each new part until eventually all the original Winamp components are gone.

There are several Linux users happy with WINE and have most functionality. Not much can be done about the Discord integration but it is a minor issue.

never? i mean, i wouldn't say never. more like unlikely.

however, someone who has the code might leak it. i'd be all for that.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks

But shoutcast removed all purchases for pro version and made everything free for everyone in v5.8. From this move we can hope about making it open source.

you may hope whatever you want but it ain't going to happen

have a look at http://software.oldversion.com/windows/winamp/

the only reason pro was made , 3th party plugins with licenses that had to be paid for.

Winamp always has been free for everyone

There is a lot of open source software which is very good because when software is open source you can prove the code and see how it works. I love FOSS on Linux. I would like to see Winamp on Linux, on Mac and on Android.
