Re: Famous media player Winamp new version with Windows 10 support leaks online

True enough. But there's the old adage, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. When I encounter something I want to listen to that Winamp doesn't play, then I'll get a new player.

True this. I agree with Dain though to this extent. Which is a point
that kinda gets on my nurvs with some conservitives like Lymbaugh. Dude
the world's moved on exept it. Move on to other things. Now yes you're
right it's just a player but eventually it'll show it's age. Things will
come up where 1 will need a new 1. It happens with Power DVD. What needs
to happen is these companies need to be reminded how accessible if in
the past their productts were accessible in the past and have them
include these keystrokes these lines of code or what ever from then in
the new ones. Power DVD 7 and 8 were verry verry accessible. Meh not
Windows Media Player but close. But come Power DVD 11 and things insted
of getting better go down hill. Cyberlink needs to be shown what they
had done and how to improve it.

I think the point is, it's a media player, not a web browser or something else that especially needs to be kept up-to-date or replaced with something newer. Not too many new audio formats under the sun lately. If someone likes it, why not use it? I can't speak for new people being introduced to it because it's been placed on their computers in 2018, but they might well end up liking it too. NO need to disparage anyone.

While I've not dealt with every type of media player that ever was, I don't see how one could get a whole lot better (as far as accessibility is concerned) than Winamp; just my opinion, you understand!

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.

how official it is and I haven't bothered to install it, because
is working just fine for me in Windows 10. However, a couple of

downloaded Windows applications. The app was sold to AOL in 1999

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

improve the overall performance of the player. The current owner
hasn't officially announced any updates for the app but
the beta has just leaked out, there's a chance that an official

developers are
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
not. We are waiting for additional details from the developers and
we will update this article if and when a statement is available.
