Bad Software Practices?

I really wish certain users on the Internet would keep their “opinions” about me to themselves.

I’ve recently been accused of “Bad Software Practices” because of the way I promote RadioDJ over “other” paid for software

“I’m confused as to what those bad software Practices are exactly, I simply promote other freely available software over paid for solutions”

Using Winamp To Automate A Radio Station?

Saw a topic on the Winamp forums from a user wanting to use Winamp Pro to automate the music for his radio station.

“Do I need a plugin to make playlists so it operates 24 hours? If so, which ones are the best? this is for music playlists but I want Winamp to never stop, It will actually be used for a small radio station.”

Winamp Feature Req: Smart Crossfade

A user has posted on the feature request section of the Winamp forums asking the developers to include “Smart crossfading” in the next version.


“Smart crossfade analyses the playlist and determines if the songs are in increasing sequential track order from the same album. If they aren’t (like in most random mixes) user defined crossfading is used”

Any improvement in crossfading between tracks in Winamp would be welcomed.

Winamp And Shoutcast Now Owned By Vivendi

I saw a post on the Winamp/Shoutcast forums this morning. It would appear Winamp and Shoutcast are now partly owned by a company called Vivendi.

Vivendi owns the likes of Universal Music Group, Canal+ and Dailymotion.
