More on the story
“There's no reason that Winamp couldn’t be in the position that iTunes is in today if not for a few layers of mismanagement by AOL that started immediately upon acquisition,” Rob Lord, the first hire and first general manager of Winamp, told Ars in 2012. Justin Frankel, Winamp's primary developer, seemed to concur in an interview he gave to BetaNews. (He declined to be interviewed by Ars in 2012.) “I'm always hoping that they will come around and realize that they're killing [Winamp] and find a better way, but AOL always seems too bogged down with all of their internal politics to get anything done.”
Its sad to see it going down. It had been a rock solid player for past 15 years. I just hope it gets revived in some way.

I tried a lot of audio players, but always come back to Winamp. It's really sad. The next best alternative is MediaMonkey I suppose.

Right. last year version upgrade came after full 1 year.
So it's almost fully matured to the point that if no further updates come, it will work flawlessly upto the current latest win os versions atleast
