Winamp 2 Has Been Immortalised in HTML5 for Your Pleasure

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Winamp disappeared into obscurity, died, then came back to life. But with such a turbulent history, it pays to make sure that the iconic piece of software lives on. Good job a working version of it's been immortalised in HMTL5, then.

Put together by Jordan Eldredge in HTML5 and Javascript, this is a working reimplementation of Winamp 2.9. At the moment it's a work in progress; you can only choose an MP3 hosted somewhere online to play, so you won't be putting together playlists. But its very existence is pretty impressive. You should certainly give it a go. [Jordan Eldredge]
