The official note on the Winamp website is that they will no longer provide downloads and fresh updates from December 2013 onwards. This is sad indeed, Winamp has been our choice of quick music playlists and usage since…since we can remember. Heck, we still use the original classic black and lime green skin!
Winamp.com and associated web services will no longer be available past December 20, 2013. 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.
Winamp has seen a loss in use and downloads due to competing players for a while now, players such as iTunes, MediaMonkey and MusicBee and even VLC Player have been voted best music players for Windows for quite some time now from pretty reputable sites.
Winamp had a glorious 15 years of pleasing millions of users. But take heart though my friend, you will still be able to download or use your current version of Winamp for the foreseeable future. I guess winamp will now stop “whipping the llama’s ass”.
You can still download Winamp 5.66 for the briefest of spells. Get it before Winamp closes down.
