It seems there is still a great deal of confusion about what is happening to the Shoutcast listings when AOL shut Winamp down on the 20th of December.

I found this posted on the forums at Loudcity.

SHOUTcast is safe for now and not affected. So it will continue working.

The android purchases should continue to be recognized, as we just check google wallet for a valid purchase order.

However, there does seem to be an issue with the Lyrics add-on not being recognized (or the Lyrics button missing) after reinstalling.

I would normally report this type of issue to the Android team devs… however, they all left a few weeks ago :-(

As for the future, I can’t say anything at the moment due to legal reasons, but let’s just wait and see.

All I can say is people should not jump to conclusions. Don’t believe everything you read on news/tech sites, because a lot of it is based on assumption. I was taught to never assume anything….

If and when there is any update, there will be some sort of official announcement to let everyone know.

Until then, I apologize on behalf of the team for any inconvenience/stress caused, and I thank you for your patience and understanding.

I hope that’s cleared things up for people. It’s just Winamp that AOL are closing down and not Shoutcast.

You can carry on as before and have your station listed on shoutcast.

There is no need to panic.
