    Guys our old school winamp will no longer be available after 20 December 2013,
    So if you want to keep a copy to show it to next generation.. Then download and keep a copy of it..

    I didn't even know Winamp was still around until I saw all the articles about its discontinuation yesterday. I haven't used it in years.

    It's ok, since the OP posted it in the Off-Topic forum. Threads in this forum don't have to be about Windows Phones.

    That would be nice. Winamp has always been a good music player. I really would hate to see it go away. Hell, convert it to a mobile player for WP. I'd download it in a heartbeat.

    I remember opening it on my computer back in the early 2000s and the sample would play, "WINAMP!!!, it really whips the llamas ***!!"

    I have slowly drifted away from Winamp for day to day music player, but for many years, it was my goto media player. It was just the perfect choice at the time. I remember minimizing the player so it was the transport controls and the playlist as a single sliver I would set to Always on Top, and it would float on my second screen, near the bottom or the top of the screen, and it would pretty much always be running.

    I don't just sit on my desktop for hours a day like I used to, and Zune media player took over as media player for me once I got into a Zune and Windows Phone and the ZunePass.

    I too loved winamp 2 era. 3, 4 and 5 were bloated and fat though... But the vers2 skinning engine was never removed. You could unload the modern skinning engine and use the old one, removing all the bloat!

    More programs need to take an approach like that.

    Unfortunately winamp's last plugin was last updated circa 2002. So basically winamp no longer has any plugins. Even when they worked, most of the plugins were just bad.

    Foobar2000 isn't perfect, but it has a healthy database of well coded plugins, most of which are still maintained.

    I know plugins for a media player might sound silly to some, but once you have a taste of power, you can't just go back ;)

    WINAMP is coming back. AOL sold Winamp, and they are currently building a new version for Windows and MACs
