Radionomy.com buys winamp.com!

Nameservers were just updated.

Why wouldn't they want Shoutcast?

Cross posted at the other board:

http://techcrunch.com/2014/01/01/aol...tor-radionomy/

Techcrunch says it's a go for both WinAmp and ShoutCast, deal closed by Friday.

I used to have 666 posts. Then, "they" announced Winamp was closing so I surfaced out of the Bin for the first time in many years. The world had changed. There were no more fins on Cadillacs. You could buy a pizza at a grocery store. I was a stranger in a strange land. I am searching... searching for a new meaning to justify my existence. In the meantime, I shall play solitaire and hone my plowshares into swords.

It's pretty much clear that they are interested in Shoutcast.

But Winamp will stay alive?

So, let me put my crystal ball in front and just say.

SHOUTcast server? Has a pretty questionable future. Radionomy is basically a radio station aggregate service. It needs the broadcasters tied in closely and I don't know how a seperate server makes that easy.

Winamp? Maybe nostalgia will be enough for them to keep some part of it going. I definitely think they would want to keep the apps that have been built for SHOUTcast.

I wonder if they'll let our powers-that-be (Craig, Egg, Daz) retake the reins of the forums. Here's hoping...

Well this is good news I hope... Even nullsoft.com changed over to new name servers... I just hope this is a good thing for winamp as well. Not justo shoutcast. It could mostly be to just bring the 50000 or some shoutcast stations over to boost their existing business. Which still leaves winamp in limbo for the most part. But hoping for the best.

I didn't even notice that the Nullsoft nameservers were changed as well. So they bought Nullsoft and not only Winamp/SHOUTcast?

For all practical purposes Nullsoft is Winamp/SHOUTcast. These 2 properties were their most valuable assets. I doubt AOL has much interest in an empty website with abandoned school/personal projects from 10 years ago.

As long as Winamp will play the stations in their current catalogue, there is no problem.
Imagine seeing an extra section in the media library next to the shoutcast, or all in 1.

It should not matter what network or format the audio is in.
If Winamp gets a Radionomy plugin, then Radionomy get a huge boost in user-base.

Now the official statement seems to be out. Direct link is not accessible atm, but I found it on a few different news sites:

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-relea...240077661.html

Ich suche jemand in Deutschland, der seinen TAMA Starclassic Maple Kesselsatz tauschen möchte BD:22, TT:14, 12, 10. Ich bin mit dem Set sehr zufrieden, habe mich aber an meiner Lackierung "Tequila Sunrise" sattgesehen. Das Set ist von 2002, gepflegt und wurde ausschließlich in Cases transportiert. Bei Interesse bitte PM an mich. Immernoch aktuell in 2014!!!

Now i hope that this dosent mean that winamp is gonna get bloated like Itunes is. I want my winamp as it is with my Shoutcast. I fine that they want to take it into the future. But when i install a new version i want to be able to de select all the stuff i dont want. so i can keep it clean an good like i do now

That link now appears to be dead. Here's the Radionomy press release:

This is great news, just hope that we can all build on what is by far the best music software freely available to all.

My thx to radionomy.com for the takeover.
