    Nooooo, the OG of streaming is going bye bye. Let's have a moment of silence for this old friend. Who's going to whip the Llama's ass now.

    I would have been devastated 10 years ago, but I think I will get over it now. It is like saying Myspace is shutting down, would anyone really care?

    Bye bye llama's ass. You were there to play my first trance song right before my first day of high school. Now you're a big piece of bloated AOL-ware.

    Well, looks like VLC Player will have to do from now on.

    The only reason people like VLC better the MPC is because you can loop your favorite porn moments.

    There was a time when I ran a radio show through the winamp system. Was pretty cool. But that was literally 10 years ago. But I'll bid farewell to something that was once pretty llama-ass whipping at one time.

    People are gonna hate me for saying this, but I couldn't care less. I think I ran the thing literally once, couldn't take myself seriously, and uninstalled the program. I'm perfectly content with WMP.

    I'll miss Winamp but there are plenty of alternatives out there now. The original intro.wav will never be forgotten!:clap2:

    Damn ! Never had a better radio player than Winamp. I play almost entire day & have just found out a great radio station 2 days ago.
    Any free alternate to Winamp outside USA/UK ?

    this is huge.. there are over 50,000 shoutcast stations. I bet 98% have no clue this is even happening.
