WinAMP probably one the first mass used mediaplayers is back with a new version and offers support to Microsoft Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Radionomy has stated that they are not stopping here and have big plans for Winamp.  “There will be a completely new version next year, with the legacy of Winamp but a more complete listening experience.” said CEO Alexandre Saboundjian. Winamp was released in 1997 originally developed by Justin Frankel, later sold to AOL in 1999 for $80 million. It was then acquired by Radionomy for an undisclosed sum from AOL, back in 2014. Winamp supports numerous audio and video formats including MIDI, MOD, MPEG-1 audio layers 1 and 2, AAC, M4A, FLAC, WAV, OGG Vorbis, and Windows Media Audio. It supports gapless playback for MP3 and AAC, and Replay Gain for volume leveling across tracks. There is also an AmigaOS classic and AmigaOS PowerPC variant of WinAMP called AmiAMP.
