Version 5.5 soon to be released

Winamp goes where iTunes doesn’t dare

by Ryan Jarrett


Winamp, that staple of media players, will soon turn 10! And its not letting it pass without a bang. On the 10th of October at 10:10am, Winamp 5.5 (PC-only) will be released sporting two new and potentially controversial features: support for mp3 blogs and the ability to stream your music collection over the Internet (a Beta version is available here).

I've been using ~Winamp on and off for years, from version 1 to 5. I've never found another player for audio or video that does all the things it can do. There are a large number of "fans" who write plug-ins and create skins and visualizations for it. Almost anything you could want to do with audio, someone has tried it with ~Winamp. You can listen to internet radio and watch tv stations, burn music CD's, watch movies, record streaming audio and a few more things than I could mention here. ~Winamp is constantly evolving.


That said, I haven't tried WinAmp since AOL bought Nullsoft, the company that makes WinAmp. I don't know what hidden surprises are included with it now.


There is a free and a pro version of WinAmp, so the free version could be considered LiteWare.

Well, the ~Winamp community is teeming with creative individuals just like you. They live to take the player to new heights of coolness. And the Nullsoft Developers Network (NSDN) lives to serve them. The NSDN portion of our site is full of useful tools and tutorials for anyone who wants to create things for Winamp. Make skins to dress up your player or code up a component to change how ~Winamp behaves. We leave it up to you to make ~Winamp exactly what you want it to be.
