[Winamp] Winamp shutting down, December 20th  

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
After 15 years of operation, winamp will shutdown December 20th.

An ominous banner hangs at the top of the winamp media players webpage, stating that December 20th will be the last day you can download the media player so many have come to love.
Quote:
Winamp.com and associated web services will no longer be available past December 20, 2013. Additionally, Winamp Media players will no longer be available for download. Please download the latest version before that date. See release notes for latest improvements to this last release.
Thanks for supporting the Winamp community for over 15 years.

What does this mean? Well according to Winamp forum user Victhor, this means that certain services will be lost.
Quote:
- Online services (like Now playing, MoodAgent, etc). The good thing about it is that now people can use / create custom services to use with it, like Broser Pro / Reader already does in cPro skins.
- Shoutcast (needs confirmation, but there are alternatives like Icecast)
- Nullsoft TV (access, not the ability to play it, if you have the links you´re good, get some here)
- Winamp.com Forums (with luck it will get moved, or live trough Skin Consortium or alike)
- Winamp.com access to skins (not critical, there´s DeviantArt / 1001skins..)
- Winamp.com access to plugins (saving working plugins IS NEEDED, later it can be uploaded somewhere)

For more information, follow the link to Victhor's post over on the winamp forums. He's said he'll continue to update as more information becomes available.
