We’re not sure how many of you guys remember Winamp from back in the day. It used to be the music player of choice amongst PC users, but a report from last year revealed that the developers were finally shutting it down after 15 years. Thankfully it sort of got a new lease on life when it was bought over.
That being said if you’re looking to get your hands on Winamp, you will be unable to do so (at least not officially), but if you just want to see what it was like to use the software, Jordan Eldredge has recently cobbled together a web version of Winamp based on HTML5. What this means is that you won’t need to download the app, you can run it straight in your browser!
This is a working version of Winamp version 2.9, although we should point out that right now it is still a work in progress. Unfortunately users will not be able to use their own songs in the app. Instead to play songs using the app, you will need to point the player towards a MP3 file that has been hosted on a different server.
It’s a pretty straightforward app and if you’d like to check it out, head on over to Jordan Eldredge’s website to check it out. Alternatively if you’d like to download previous version of Winamp, you can do so by heading on over to the Winamp forums for the details.
