Winamp To Be Sold ?
« on: December 22, 2013, 10:01:16 am »
It looks like the announcement by AOL recently regarding the discontinuation of Winamp has attracted the interest of a third party.

AOL is finalizing negotiations to sell off Winamp and Shoutcast in a deal that would allow both products to live on, according to a source with knowledge of the discussions.

The company (which owns TechCrunch) announced last month that as of December 20, Winamp web services would shut down and that the desktop version of the video and music player would no longer be available for download.

Shortly afterward, TechCrunch’s Ingrid Lunden reported that Microsoft was in talks to buy both Winamp and Shoutcast, another media streaming service that AOL owns through its acquisition of Nullsoft way back in 1999.

Lets see how this pans out eh folks  :)

Spotify, however, has seen fit to pay tribute to Winamp’s legacy with a faithfully reconstructed player for its streaming service.

The Winamp-themed Spotify player is only available for Spotify Premium subscribers. Unfortunate for the unwashed masses, but if you’re already a heavy user and want to relive the good old days, the player is a free download.
