AOL Drops Availability and All Support for Winamp
AOL has announced that Winamp.com and associated web services will no longer be available past December 20, 2013. Winamp was one of the first widely installed MP3 players and became available in 1997. The software was originally developed by Nullsoft and AOL purchased it in 1999. AOL combined it with a music download service but it could never compete with Spotify or iTunes. AOL went on to write: “Additionally, Winamp Media players will no longer be available for download. Please download the latest version before that date. See release notes for latest improvements to this last release. Thanks for supporting the Winamp community for over 15 years.”.
