    Talk about bad timing - it's announced today that WinAmp is shutting down in a month. If you want it, better act quick.

    It is bad timing, but there is a good alternative to Winamp which synchronises well with Android and iOS and includes, amongst many powerful features, excellent playlist management - MediaMonkey.

    I got DoubleTwist to sync my android with my iMac. It was a bonus that it also worked with Windows.

    RIP WinAmp, you shall be missed!

    Yes, indeed!
    It is a sad day for people (like myself) who have always relied on WinAmp and avoided WiMP all these years.
    I am currently going thru the long and arduous process of ripping my 1000+ CD collection to FLAC format.
    I have trialed many CD rippers, such ExactAudioCopy program that is the choice of many rippers, without 100% satisfaction. I have also unsuccessfully trialed FairStars Audio Converter.
    I am mostly relying on dBpoweramp CD Ripper for ripping my CDs, using the 'lossless uncompressed' (archive-quality) digital equivalents. Since dBpoweramp CD Ripper does not readily create playlists (*.m3u) of the ripped FLAC files; I have to perform a few additional steps to take all the FLAC files and "enqueue in WinAmp" and then create the needed playlists. Some of my CDs are not recognized by dBpoweramp CD Ripper. Thus, I also have to rely on WinAmp for ripping them to FLAC (but the WinAmp FLAC ripper does not offer the "lossless uncompressed" archive-quality format).
    Slashgear article states that the WinAmp website will be closed on 20 December 2013.

    I know my whole post-reply is quite off-topic but WinAmp's demise is truly a sad event!
    If anyone is interested, there is a petition to provide CPR to WinAmp:
