Shout it out loud! – Tell us why you love Winamp…

Some people may be interested in how the Save Winamp Petition and website came about, how I got involved, what we achieved etc. I think it will prove a readable interesting story..I hope so anyway..

Well there I was browsing the Winamp Forum one day when I saw the thread re the ending of Winamp. I was absolutely gobsmacked. This fantastic player which had lived on my desktop forever was about to be shut down on 20th December 2013. Just like that, no real explanation, just a short paragraph.

I, like thousands of others started questioning….Why close Winamp? Why no discussion as to options? Why have we not been asked to contribute and help with solutions as to what could be done? Why can’t it be made open source for the masses? Many more questions were asked, all to dead ears, the silence was eerie. It seemed definite that the end WAS coming.

I posted a separate thread that we should start a Petition. Someone quickly suggested that it should be setup properly rather than in a Winamp Forum thread. So I quickly setup the Save Winamp Petition which was first named Save Winamp – Let It go Open Source…

winampenthuspetition Within hours it was obvious that it was not thousands of people who loved Winamp and wanted it to live on, it was millions!…..

Why Facebook?

We did have a forum when the original Winamp forum was threatened to close but that’s no longer the case. Rather than have another forum we decided to try a different approach with Facebook. Since we’ve started the Facebook Group we’ve had a huge amount of members join in a very short time. Facebook seems to fit into peoples lives easier than a forum. Updates are instant and easily available on all devices from Smart Phone to PC.

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.

Well I had a couple of stressful days. As many of you know I have the Ampwifi Winamp Remote app on the Google Play store. Well On Friday of last week I pushed up an update and later on that day I get an email from Google telling me the app is suspended - with barely a hint as to why. And this wasn't a warning, they literally made it impossible for me to even examine or edit my app in the developer console, it was just gone. In their email they said something about a copyright violation and that I need to fix it before re-submitting it as a totally new app (meaning, those who already have Ampwifi would need to uninstall the old one and install the new one - PIIA). So I did what anyone would do: appealed. This morning I got a response and it seems the violation was that I had a screen shot with a song by Sia in the playlist. That, according to Google, is a copyright violation because it somehow encourages copyright violations or something, whatever. BUT, they refused to un-suspend the app. So I responded and I offered to remove all screen shots and do whatever they want, just PLEASE don't force me to create a new app package. Finally, I just got word that they'll conditionally reinstate my app, although it's currently listed as "Removed" and I need to resubmit it for their approval. Man does this suck.

So, if anyone is wondering why it's not on the Play store, now you know. And for any other developers out there, be very careful what you put in those screen shots, they seem to have an itchy trigger finger over at Google. Sheesh!
