Winamp LIVES ON!

In a surprising turn of events, it appears that all is not lost for Winamp as its parent company, AOL, is reported to be negotiating with Radionomy for a possible acquisition of the popular media player along with an online music service called SHOUTcast.

Late last year, we’ve reported that Winamp is all prepped up to bite the dust on December 20, leaving a fruitful 15-year legacy in the process. But Radionomy, a Belgium-based online radio station aggregator, saw that Winamp and SHOUTcast with its 45,000 stations under its belt will be a great addition to their portfolio.

According to TechCrunch, all the legalities of the acquisition are expected to be finalized last Friday, but up to now there’s no official word how the negotiation went. In any case, you can still download the latest version of Winamp from their website.

    … with all the new and better players out there nowadays… who the fuck cares?

    Whoever acquires Winamp should update it’s UI and UX. I rarely use it now as there are better players in Google Play.

    Winamp is like a stale bread. Features-wise, it’s flat-out boring, and ugly….

    Mobile is where its at right now as more and more people are relying on their phones as their go-to music players.

    Ayuda na rin ako..WHO CARES.

    POWERAMP is THE King

    Susko Poweramp poweramp ka pa eh viper4android lang katapat nyan kahit anong media/audioplayer gaganda ang sound basta may viper4android lalo na pag flac ang mga music mo at mp3 @ 320kbps. Pero winamp luma na kasi walang innovation kaya ayan ang nangyari tsaka memory hog din kasi yan sa android. Just sayin’.
