Winamp Is Back- Not a deal

Recommended Posts

This is the second time they've made a whole new website just to say "coming soon"

I'M READY NOW!!

Based on the description, I'm guessing I'll stick with my old installers.  

Not interested with "connecting with artists, etc" 

Just want a super bare bones player that isn't trying to connect with the internet in any way shape or form.

This may get us banned but after downloading with limewire and Napster I would play on Winamp hahah

Of course most MP3’s were mislabeled, viruses, terrible quality, or cut off before the chorus. Kids these days won’t know the pain of trying to find your favorite song :)

Dang, you are on the modern version.  Here is mine:

v 2.79 running a 128 kbps MP3

Thanks I may try that again, when I used it years ago I never bonded with the layout of the interface.  

 

Which must sound ironic coming from someone using WinAmp from 20 years ago.

Fine taste in music too, I see.

I cannot check right now, but I believe I'm on this version as well. No reason to change.

As for the new Winamp...I actually think this is very clever and interesting. There's an entire generation of people who instantly recognizes the name.  What if...and this is not going to happen but....what if is would be some combination of youtube / soundcloud / Spotify / Tunein (or whatever radio app) / Distrokid (or whatever distributor) etc. They talk about fair income for creators and releasing music, so there is a model behind this. 

I'm very curious as to how they are planning to market this and what it will be.

The layout in Foobar2000 is very customizable, so you can change it to suit your taste.

I wonder what's going on here. Justin Frankel, the original Winamp developer, stopped working on it and founded Cockos (Reaper). Is he going back to Winamp, or is it a whole new set of peeps, and Justin has nothing to do with it? He sold Nullsoft to AOL in '99, who then closed the San Francisco office of Nullsoft in December 2003, laying off 450 people. Justin resigned a month later, so my guess is he has nothing to do with the new incarnation, whatever and whenever that might be.

Everything other than the classic skin and layout is blasphemy.

Are we still talking about Foobar2000? Because I don't think it has ever had a "classic" skin/layout, since it's all about customizing the UX.

Oh I'm sorry I wasn't paying attention.  I was talking about Winamp but I see you were talking about Foobar2000.

Understandable, my post had not other context except the quoted text. I have now edited my post to make it more clear which program I'm talking about.

Still, if Winamp is coming back, they better bring along the classic skin.

I would love to see a move back to players instead  streaming services.

Winamp will likely be trying to merge the two. Just a guess on my part.
