Winamp shut down

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

On November 20, 2013, AOL announced that would shut down on December 20, 2013, and the software would no longer be available for download nor supported by the company after that date. The following day, an unofficial report surfaced that Microsoft was in talks with AOL to acquire intellectual property of Winamp and Shoutcast. An on-line campaign was also initiated asking AOL to continue Winamp development or to release it open source. Free download to only registered user. Shocked Cool

Notes: Five days later, version 5.666 was released with the "Pro" & "Full" installers being one and the same, in the process removing OpenCandy, Emusic, AOL Search and AOL Toolbar from the installation bundle. This was announced to be the last release of Winamp from AOL/Nullsoft. There was a Winamp 5.7 beta program for an invite-based Winamp Cloud feature, which would let Winamp play a user's entire, cloud stored music library across all supported devices. This feature would have allowed AOL to provide a music locker service that would essentially compete with other online music lockers. The beta program was cancelled months before the announcement to shutdown the Winamp project.
