Winamp media player is shutting down all it’s services, which include domain, Web services and software. If you are using computer during xp era, then I’m sure you will be aware of  winamp player. Which is one of the most popular player to play our mp3 songs on those days.

I still remember those days when winamp is the one player which I and my friends were used to play songs. Which is having dark color skin, light weight player and drag and dropping songs to player… it is remembering my college days. It is really fun to use that software.

Day by day winamp starts loosing it’s charm and popularity because of lot of other music players dominated winamp over it’s features.
