Why Facebook?

We did have a forum when the original Winamp forum was threatened to close but that is no longer the case. Rather than have another forum we decided to try a social approach with a Facebook.

Since we’ve started the Facebook Group we’ve had over 1,500 members join in a very short time. Possibly, Facebook seems to fit into peoples lives easier than a forum. Updates are instant and available on all devices.

But I Hate Facebook!

We realise that some people still don’t like Facebook, all we ask is that you give it a try. There are ad blockers for Firefox and Chrome browsers that will make the experience less intruding, in fact I very rarely see any ads at all.

There are many benefits of using Facebook to keep in touch with family, share pics etc etc. Try it, you may be pleasantly surprised.

If not well at least by visiting this website you have an idea of what’s going on at our Facebook Group Page.

Pete Zawacki Just emailed the great man Justin Frankel...

Dear Justin!

I am graciously bowing in your presence.
Thank you forever for Winamp.

We are trying to find out the correct original meaning for the name Winamp.
Nobody is certain and hoping you can help.
This is what we have so far..

According to Wiki:
Winamp was first released in 1997, when Justin Frankel and Dmitry Boldyrev,[5][6][7] formerly students at the University of Utah, integrated their Windows user interface with the Advanced Multimedia Products "AMP" MP3 file playback engine.[42] The name Winamp (originally spelled WinAMP) was a portmanteau of "Windows" and "AMP".[43] The minimalist WinAMP 0.20a was released as freeware on April 21, 1997.[44][45] Its windowless menubar-only interface showed only play (open), stop, pause, and unpause functions. A file specified on the command line or dropped onto its icon would be played. MP3 decoding was performed by the AMP decoding engine developed by Advanced Multimedia Products co-founder Tomislav Uzelac, which was free for non-commercial use.[46]
So the short answer is Windows Advanced Multimedia Products.
But it also goes by other names..
Windows Amplifier
Windows Audio MPEG Player
Windows Advanced Media Player

So my question to you is..
What was the original meaning or abbreviation of Winamp?

Please also visit our Winamp Enthusiasts Website and Facebook Group when you can.

Eternally grateful for all your Winamp work.
