Winamp is a media player for Microsoft Windows 95 and above.
Winamp was first released in 1997, when Justin Frankel and Dmitry Boldyrev, formerly students at the University of Utah, integrated their Windows user interface with the Advanced Multimedia Products (“AMP”) MP3 file playback engine. 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.
Winamp is best seen as a drag and drop player. The design is very crude.
