Dane, Winamp is the most accessible media player for the blind. It may be
old, but it is highly functional. I am listening to online radio with it
as I type this message. Braille slates are more than 80 years old but they
are still used because they are useful. I also own and use a minidisc
recorder. It is somewhat ancient, but it remains highly effective for
spoken word recording. Kelly <div

By Mayank Parmar - September 17, 2018 Winamp for Windows Remember Winamp?
The popular media player for Windows is expected to make
a
comeback at some point. Winamp was launched by independent developers back
in 1997 and it grew quickly popular with over 3 million downloads in a
short
span of time. In a couple of years, Winamp became one of the most
downloaded Windows applications. The app was sold to AOL in 1999 for $80
million but it later acquired by Radionomy in 2014. Radionomy, the current
developers of famous Winamp promised that the app will receive a new
update with several new features. A while ago, the developers published
release notes of an update but no downloadable package was available for
users to try out. Winamp developers promised major updates ever since it
took over the company and we are
still
waiting for that day. It's an old and outdated app but it's still being
used by millions of
users.
A new version of Winamp, which was last developed on October 26, 2016, has
leaked online. Winamp 5.8 has been published by an unknown source and it's
not from the official developers. It's also worth noting that VirusTotal
scan generates two different
warnings
for the app, so we are not including the link to unreleased Winamp update
in
this article. Winamp works fine on Windows 10 The Winamp 5.8 comes with
several new features and improvements including support for Windows 8.1
and Windows 10. It is, however, worth noting that public and stable
version of the app
works
smoothly on Windows 10, but Winamp 5.8 is supposed to address
compatibility
issues with Windows 10. As noted above, this release of Winamp comes with
several other improvements. For example, there's a dedicated setting that
lets you
disable
Winamp's video support and the company has also fixed some bugs to improve
the overall performance of the player. The current owner hasn't officially
announced any updates for the app but
as
the beta has just leaked out, there's a chance that an official statement
will be released soon. It's also possible that the developers are
internally
testing a new and improved version of the app with better support for
Windows 10. At this point, it's not yet known whether a new Winamp release
is planned
or
not. We are waiting for additional details from the developers and we will
update this article if and when a statement is available.
********** Those of a positive and enquiring frame of mind will leave the
rest of the halfwits in this world behind.
