Speaking of AmigaAmp, I was bitterly disappointed to see WinAmp support has been discontinued. After re-installing Windows recently I put WinAmp back on and found it crippled. Looking into it revealed it was bought out and buried.
This is a piece of software that I actually paid the shareware fee way back in the late 90's. I got my money's worth, but I wish I could still use it fully and not just crippled. I have not found a proper replacement for it yet. While there is competent software, they just don't have the exact same goal as WinAmp.
On AmigaAmp itself, it's been a while since I used it. I think i tried half-hearted on MorphOS once and gave up with it didn't immediately work. Would be cool to see a working updated version.
I had always considered WinAmp to be discontinued since the sale or acquisition from Nullsoft to AOL during version 3, and then their immature decision to skip version 4. Surprised to hear that Winamp still on Windows, I researched and discovered that Winamp was sold yet again to "Radionomy" in 2014 and it has not been updated since.
I have parted with Winamp very long time ago and have since enjoying VLC. However, it is very sad that VLC is not support MorphOS.
