Just read these terrible news.
I will relaunch winamp site with all skins and plugins.
I hope i will be able to do this within a week.
I will post the link for the "backup" site ASAP.

P.S. AIMP3 is the best for sound.

REALLY ? PURE AWESOME ! Does this means that Wonamp has become ... somewhat ... "Open Source" now ???? I was waiting for the Winamp Cloud too. PLEASE let me know when you have taken over Winamp. I don't like the AIMP that it is not one piece LOL

Shame, once a legendary music player... now people don't use it because AOL slapped extra crap no one wants in it. They turned it into the most bloated music player ever!

This is sad news :( I remember my WinAMP days.

 

One last time for the road, "WINAMP. It kicks the LLAMA's ASS!"

Sad news! I used Winamp for Shoutcast radio.  I think Fubar is still around though

Mine is Spotify. Definitely worth the money and supports artist.

WinAMP was so awesome in the first days of MP3. Sad to see it go, but every good thing must see an end.

Another great chapter has been closed in Tech history.
