    Winamp.com will be no more on December 20th, 2013.

    Yesterday was quite possibly one of the darkest days in the history of the internet...

    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.
    Well, that just sucks... I've been using Winamp since forever. No 

    Unless a miracle happens (there is an ongoing petition to keep it alive), the only reliable option left is foobar2000.

    Personally I use jetAudio and rip all my CD's using the wave file format. I remember WinAmp was handy if you wanted metadata on lossless files. Windows Media Player still has lots of catching up to do on this subject! I never used WinAmp for long periods at a time, but I did enjoy it nonetheless and it's sad to see it go, but in this day and age, with streaming, iTunes and whatnot it doesn't really surprise me.

    AOL... MSN Messenger... Yahoo... All that stuff... Where did it all go, man? lol!

    Anyway, I figured I'd give foobar2000 a try, and it seems to do the job (I mostly listen to video game music nowadays), but I need to do some tinkering around with it so it will fit my needs.

    Wolfenstein WinAmp Skins

    Post by stathmk on Thu Nov 21, 2013 1:40 pm

    I thought that the last time that I checked WinAmp's page that there were Wolfenstein 3D, RTCW, and ROTT WinAmp skins.  There was at least 1 Playboy skin.

    My computer is being weird and slowing down.

    Winamp is owned by AOL. Winamp died the minute AOL purchased it because AOL blows. MSN got changed into Skype call. Yahoo is still yahoo. Google ate it. rabbit 

    I used to use Winamp. It had some visual glitched with Aero, and once in a while it's open up maximized, but out of bounds for my monitor. Very odd. It crashed on me for the last time. I used it for easy management of what songs I can listen to, plus the dark theme and large list of songs on one screen. I remember getting a new monitor and seeing the white letters change, lol. Most of all I wanted the play statistics, how many times I've lsitened to it. But the way Winamp manages is piss poor. If your Winamp dies or you reformat, it's gone for good.

    So I switched to Foobar. Winamp has a nice visualization program called Milkdrop which I'm too lazy to incorporate into Foobar. But Foobar is considered the program to consider for people more serious about their audio... Because Foobar is open to a lot of customization. I've finally got a Foobar setup I enjoy:

    I still prefer Winamp's black skin but this skin does the job for me without being an eyesore.
