exactly pat, thats why i made sure i have my plug in s and skins and the latest version , so in future installs im covered.

its a shame they are doing away with it but i doubt it will make a huge difference to those continuing to use it.
i have it set up really simply.
i dont let it view my libraries i browse my music folder then choose an album select all and play thats it i use cpro skins and have a small thin player that sits above the taskbar , its ideal for when im browsing too as the thin player sits neatly on the add on bar in firefox
like so...

Looks good. yeah, even I'm downloading and grabbing updates "for the in case" scenario.

I too plan on continuing to use it for as long as it will install in my OS. I've always used the Lite version and that is just too small, clean, and simple to give up at this point.

Unfortunately, I believe MS would buy Winamp for either patent shenanigans or code mining. I doubt we would see a resurrection.

Hi there.

Well here's another user who won't give up on this until I absolutely HAVE TO -- by then music will probably be streamed DIRECTLY into your brains without the need of a computer anyway !!.

Give some young kids a ball point pen and they haven't a clue what to do with it anyway apart from probably looking at it as some sort of strange weapon and thinking about how to stab their neighbours with it -- so the future might be closer than you think.

Cheers

That doesn't make sense here. Why would M$ buy Winamp just to let it die when AOHell is already doing that?

Now, that does make sense. In fact, I already mentioned that possibility.
Hi there
I suppose Ms will be wanting to (in that Ghastly word -- come on all you English Native Speakers -- SAVE YOUR LANGUAGE -- you need something like the French have : https://www.google.co.uk/#q=academie+francaise) "Monetise" the product.

For anyone interested here's a link to the GRACENOTE API so I think people like Media Monkey etc should - especially for a 50 USD product - allow people to CHOOSE the database used for track retrieval - or provide all of them.

https://developer.gracenote.com/web-api


Cheers

I agree that English speakers need to stabilize the language instead of allowing to degrade.

The part about Gracenote is intriguing but I have no clue how to implement it. A tutorial on how to do so would be nice. Btw, MediaMonkey comes in both a free and a paid version (the paid version has a lifetime license).

I use VLC - it plays music from folders simply by choosing 'Media' in the Menu at the top of the player and then navigating to your folder.

Hi there.

VLC works of course but the GUI isn't really nice for some Audio stuff. The other thing is VLC doesn't have decent Ripping facilities or good music track retrieval (GRACENOTE) info facilities although I'm sure at some stage somebody will probably build those in to it.

I think a lot of people keep VLC for VIDEO while using a dedicated AUDIO player for audio applications.

Cheers
