Winamp shutting down 20 Dec 2013

By Vasudev Ram

Winamp will be shutting down on 20 December 2013, according to this post I just saw on Hacker News.

Winamp on Wikipedia

As someone said in the HN thread, "the end of an era". I used to enjoy fiddling around with different Winamp skins, apart from using it as a music player.

The HN thread linked above has a link to an interesting article on Ars Technica about WinAmp's history.

According to the notice on the Winamp site (near the top of the page), Winamp downloads will not be available after the site shuts down. So go grab your copy of Winamp before it's too late.

Here is Bob Marley playing Trenchtown Rock (you can skip any YouTube ad that may appear, after a few seconds):
