Winamp Gets 10th Anniversary Update

Today at 10:00 AM EST, Nullsoft and AOL released the latest version of Winamp. The timing of the 5.5 release was deliberately chosen (10/10, 10:00) to commemorate the software's tenth year as a leading media player.

Some more features have been added to the popular utility, including a GraceNote powered instant playlist generator called "More Like This," as well as a feature that allows users to access their Winamp content through their next-generation game consoles.


A browser-embedded toolbar further helps users control Winamp from wherever they choose.

Since Nullsoft is a Time Warner commodity, advertising has taken a slightly more important role, with standard and customized advertising packages available directly through the Winamp media player.

Winamp 5.5 10th Anniversary Edition can be downloaded from FileForum.

What are your memories of Winamp?
