Using Winamp To Dj With?

Using Winamp To DJ With?

Click to enlarge

Just seen a topic pop up on the Winamp forums where someone said they were using Winamp to DJ.

Another user replied with:

“Real DJs don’t use Winamp to DJ it doesn’t crossfade properly”

 
Indeed DJ’s don’t use Winamp to produce mixes or radio shows. We use other software that is built for the job.

I haven’t used Winamp to stream a radio station with in over 10 years. Winamp is a media player for listening to a shoutcast stream.

While Winamp may have been a starting point for anyone who wanted to DJ years ago, There is far better software than Winamp to DJ with.

1) Mixxx

Mixxx

2) Virtual DJ

virtual-dj-pro

3) RadioDJ

RadioDJ free radio automation software

4) Traktor

traktor-dj-studio_5

Those are just a few of the programs available to DJ with. You can find others by searching Google.

“Anyone who is serious about DJ work these days wouldn’t even touch Winamp”

 
If you use Winamp to DJ with then you’ll end up sounding like an amateur who doesn’t know what he’s doing.

Winamp Goes For A Song!

I have previously written about Radionomy taking over Winamp. Now the news is official Radionomy do now indeed own Winamp and Shoutcast.

Link to article

The deal is thought to be worth between $5 million and $10 million, with AOL taking a 12% stake of Radionomy in the process. When you consider AOL initially paid around $80 million for Winamp in the first place. Radionomy seem to have got themselves a bargain with this purchase.

The offical blurb from Radionomy is Here

What does this mean for the future of both Winamp and Shoutcast? I guess we will have to wait and see. If they decide to start sticking adverts into peoples shoutcast streams It will only mean more people using icecast.

The New Owner Of Winamp Is…

Thanks to someone being vigilant on the winamp forums we now know the fate of the program. The name servers on winamp have been changed from AOL.com

As you can see from the above picture the name servers have changed from aol.com to Radionomy’s name servers.

What does this mean for winamp? At this stage we don’t know all we know is the name servers have changed.

We have done a check on the name servers with a whois search and it is definitely correct.

Shoutcast.com still points to AOL so we don’t know if this is yet part of the deal or not.

I guess we shall expect an official announcement at some point this week.

Shoutcast Is Going Nowhere.

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.
