Winamp might be getting a revamp


     This has me excited. I won't lie. Winamp might be getting an over haul.
Vivendi SA is rumored to be stream lining a re-release and I think a revamp is a long time coming.

     The history on Vivendi is VERY extensive. They owned blizzard and brought you the original WOW, Diablo and Starcraft. They owned Sierra Entertainment and brought you F.E.A.R. (they also owned Massive Entertainment). They're also heavy investors in Ubisoft and Gameloft. It should also be mention they own Dailymotion. These guys are one of the few companies that survived the transition from solid to digital media (albeit, with some large scars).

     Winamp has had a rocky life span. First started by Nulsoft and sold to AOL, who did basically nothing with it. Radiology bought it and has been sitting on it since 2014. So with this news I am SUPER excited. I've been using Winamp since its invention back in 1997. Crazy how some things refuse to die.

If you're new to Winamp or just want to re-download it, you can find it here.


Have an amazing Holiday season!

  1. Wow, if its true, its really good news, cuz WinAmp was one of my favourite music tool of all times. But with time it started to get old, so I started to use another player. But now I am thinking about starting using WinAmp again. By the way here https://yumdownload.com/winamp u can always found the best WinAmp version, if you are old school guy like me:)
