Using Winamp To DJ With?
Just seen a topic pop up on the Winamp forums where someone said they were using Winamp to DJ.
Another user replied with:
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.
2) Virtual DJ
Those are just a few of the programs available to DJ with. You can find others by searching Google.
If you use Winamp to DJ with then you’ll end up sounding like an amateur who doesn’t know what he’s doing.

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.
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.
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.
