I simply can not stand for this! Why is my number 1 player going the way of the dodo bird all of a sudden?

Anything AOL touches goes to ****.That includes AOL itself.

 

Some sweet memories of recording Minidiscs with a Winamp plugin that used to pause  the next track by 4 seconds to enable sync recording.

Why? I don't know.

 

Probably not enough profit.

Try MusicBee instead, it's very good and free. Supports winamp plugins too.

Sad news and I am becoming sentimental as Winamp was my first ever PC music player. 

 

I loved Milkdrop visualization, too. Actually because of Milkdrop I still have Winamp installed on my computer. I use it only occassionally as I prefer the sound from Foobar or J.River Media Centre. 

 

BTW on which other player can I use Milkdrop?
