Winamp Free Download Software For Windows 23
The 2.x versions were widely used and made Winamp one of the most downloaded pieces of software for Windows. By the end of 1998, there were already over 60 plugins and hundreds of skins made for the software.

On November 20, 2013, AOL announced that it would shut down Winamp.com 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 Nullsoft. Despite AOL's announcement, the Winamp site was not shut down as planned, and on January 14, 2014, it was officially announced that Belgian online radio aggregator Radionomy had bought the Nullsoft brand, which includes Winamp and SHOUTcast. No financial details were publicly announced. However, TechCrunch has reported that the sale of Winamp and Shoutcast is worth between $5 and $10 million, with AOL taking a 12% stake (a financial, not strategic, investment) in Radionomy in the process.
AOL also is expected to release a for-pay version of the software, called "Winamp Pro," as early as Wednesday. The software will cost $14.95, according to the Web site, but it was not available for download as of Tuesday morning. The site, however, shows that Winamp Pro will include MP3 encoding and 48x CD burning.
I was looking for a better alternative to winamp, since I didnt use Winamp for many many years (juist because of laziness, new Windows Install, always used VLC) and my expectation was that during this WHOLE TIME there SURELY would be developed soemthing that is better.I was less than thrilled to see, that the suggested alternatives were the exact ones that I found worse than Winamp even back in the day when I tried them (2004).So the only alternatives to Winamp according this list are software, that is almost the same age as Winamp and doesnt even have much more functionality (if any more)?
WACUP is still under development with a functioning preview build that can be downloaded here. As this is pre-release software there can be issues which can be reported in the preview discussion forum. We recommend installing this WACUP Preview build into it's own separate directory from your existing software install until it is feature complete.
This is a sister site of winampplugins.co.uk (previously nunzioweb.com/daz / daz.ne1.net) which albeit a bit broken & needing some updating shows off a lot of the plug-ins that I created & worked on over the years going all the way back to 2003.I have over 18 years experience making Winamp plug-ins as well as having worked on Winamp natively on / off since 2007 until the last AOL release. I'm now hoping to do some of the things I used to do for Winamp to try to get back the feeling of fun from getting new build updates that's sadly missing from a lot of software nowadays (aka coding without the corporate BS). I also worked on SHOUTcast since late 2010 until mid-September 2015.
Ok, here it is. Version 5.1 I have lots of new things i'm going to introduce below. First i want tosay a few things that have changed. First of all my E-mail adres. Thatis now XXXXX@XXXXX.XXXXXX.XX. It has changed because in the lastversion of LCD Smartie (5.0) i used a default setting for the pop3email server. and checking for email was set 'enabled' by default.so i got a call from my isp a few weeks ago (about 15-7) if couldexplain why they got so many tries to connect to there mail server. Ididn't know nothing (offcourse ) and asked howmuch. So they told me it was over 150 connections a minute..... well this time i left the field blank further changes:- I have made a checkbox for all you guys with a dial up connection. Ifyou turn it off you don't check for a new version @ startup. This doesalso mean that you don't get a popup if you want to make a connection(dialup) - Fixed Gamestats (which didn't work in 5.0) - 20 screens instead of 10 - 10 pop3 email adresses instead of 1 - Upgraded Motherboard Monitor support (new version also works now) - Randomize screens feature new things: - Winamp Status - Network statistics (speeds, totals, errors and more) - Weather.com support (for people in America) - Folding@home statistics - I made a very simple skin function so you can skin for yourself. (check the 'images' directory) - Theme feature (which allowes you to make several 'theme's' which you can 'play' separatedly - Resume on next line (will cut of the text that is to long for the screen, and pastes it on the next line) - Center Text (will center the text on that line)- Events screen where you can make your own events (i.e. skip allwinamp tracks with a low bitrate, or flash your backlight 5 times whenyou have email - Full support for Matrix Orbital buttons and keypads. (Also the LK404-55) - $Counter (counts back to a specific day or time) - $dll() (support for plugins) - $Count() (Counts several, not limited, decimal values together) - $Right() (alligns a small peace of text to the right) - $Flash() (let't the text between the brackets flash) - Lots of small and big bug fixes (i.e. the shutdown bug; Thanx supressor) And again here is the full list of features Plugin support (dll): Ok, as i said above, I now have plugin support. This means you all can start writing your own plugins now. Herefor I made an example dll which you can download here. But before you download the file i would like to explain something.the dll format is very simple. It is build with 10 functions. Those arealways the same (same name) the dll can be named whatever you like. When you call the dll you call it with 2 parameters. You don't have to use both, but you do have to call them with both. If you want to use more parameters you can simply make some weird method of parsing like: '$dll(foo.dll,3,param1#param2#param3,param4#param5)'this DOES mean that you have to substract the parameters 1, 2 and 3 outof the accual parameter: 'param1'. That is something you have to do inthe dll itself. hope you all start programming right away so there will come lots of plugins If you have made a plugin, please mail it to me and i will put it on the site. Shortcuts: ok i also made shortcuts to the basic functions. it's just like winamp, activate the main screen and press the button Z = Winamp Last Track X = Winamp Play C = Winamp Pause V = Winamp Stop B = Winamp Next Track N = Backlight on/off M = Freeze screen (the screen rotation freezes, and only the active screen will be updated) , = Last Screen . = Next Screen / = Refresh all data (inet data, mbm, email, hd size, etc.) K = Last Theme L = Next Theme
Awesome CROSSFADE!!! - This is one of the best plugins for output that I have used in a while. Simple is always coming out on top. I only took half of a star because when I attempted to get to the options for this plugin, it stalled winamp 5.56 and I had to close out. Other than that, the plugin works very well. I would recommend to all useing winamp. You can visit my review on my site and also download this plugin at - September 1, 2009 by sonchip
Never found anything better... - ...and I've been using this plugin for several years! This is the only free bit of software I've found that bases the crossfade on sound levels instead of time. When I'm DJing, I don't want a song to fade in as the other is fading out...I want the new song to start full volume and the previous song to disappear quickly. This plugin handles 95% of the crossfades the way I would if I were handling it manually. I try every new crossfade plugin I find, and none work as intelligently as SqrSoft. I use it for my Mobile DJ service as well as my Internet radio station, TigerRadio. The only downside is that there hasn't been an update in some time, but nevertheless, it's the most intelligent crossfader out there. - October 29, 2005 by Gary Teel
Pop-up window - The popup windows can be disabled by downloading and installing the verion that is distributed trough the website of the author. In that version there is an extra checkbox in the advanced tab that allows you to disable the popup window. - October 25, 2005 by Lennert Collee
is a nice Toy.. - Very handy piece of software, thanks to the writer! I personally would change the options section a little bit. instead of having a "use fade on seek" checkbox in the advanced register , i'd put a "flush on seek" checkbox in the "fade on seek" register, like you did in the "fade on stop/Skip" register, would make more sense to me that way.Only Problem I'm really having, is that it won't be triggered by the "Toggle crossfading"-Button in the winamp equalizer, or maybe I'm doing something wrong? Anyway, Nice tool! - February 27, 2005 by Axel Gieck
is it really "free" if it crashes? - the plugin works pretty good except for the drain on the resources while changing songs, however the advertisment asking for money that pops up every 10 songs or so causes winamp to become unoperational making you have to end task and restart it... VERY ANNOYING and is making me not use the plug in anymore... I understand the need for funding for freeware but this is not the answer... have a manditory email sign up or something thanks - December 9, 2003 by Chris Camp.
Annoying - It's nice enough I suppose, but I don't find the crossfade to be very smooth. Plus, now my winamp always crashes and I have to restart it. Also, the window asking for support is just rude and annoying. At the very least you could have some fucking consideration and have it pop-up in a new window. I've lost several things I've typed from your damn begging for donations. I hit the back button on my browser and everything I'd just typed disappears. Plus, it refuses to delete from my computer, and you don't have an option to uninstall it. I'm content with the winamp I have now, I don't want to have to go in and save all my skins and other plug-ins, delete winamp, and re-download a newer version that I absolutely do not want. This was a nice idea, and it works for some people, but you need to have a little more consideration next time you try something. I am absolutely not happy with this at all. - June 13, 2003 by satori rahyn
