Goodbye Winamp

Winamp is closing December 20, 2013.

JRiver loved Winamp too. And we think you might like JRiver Media Center.

Thanks for the memories

Anyone with a history in digital media has a warm place in their heart for Winamp:

Winamp was an amazing program. It broke important ground with its plugin support. Justin Frankel was a genius developer.

From Matt Ashland, JRiver's CTO, "I remember using the very first version of Winamp. I sent a feature request for them to add an equalizer, and was thrilled when it showed up! No lossless audio files could play in Winamp when I was in college, which is why Monkey's Audio was born. Goodbye Winamp, you'll be missed."


In 1999, AOL bought Winamp for $80 million. Justin left shortly after and Winamp was never the same.

During that time, JRiver has been steadily improving Media Center. We're now on version 19, have a half million posts on our forum, and are a best-selling media player.

JRiver has earned its reputation as the premier audio player. We embrace the same community driven development model that helped Winamp thrive.
