What is Nullsoft Winamp?

Winamp, developed by Nullsoft (now wholly owned by AOL), is a music and media player for several platforms, such as Windows, Android, and Mac OS X. Winamp was first released in 1997 and has redefined the new era of software for its modular design and extensibility via the use of skins and plug-ins, some of which are made by third parties. Winamp is distributed by a freemium model – where the core application is provided free of charge, but several functions need to be purchased to unlock them. Winamp’s impact on popular and Internet culture was so strong it is believed to have helped the standardization of MP3 files for audio files and popularized file sharing, giving rise to P2P and torrents. In fact, 3 years after its initial release, Winamp had gained over 25 million registrations.

Winamp’s main draw is its modular design, on which its functions and capabilities can be extended by other plug-ins, similar to modern browsers whose features can be augmented via the use of plug-ins. However, it also introduced media libraries, and supports a diverse range of media formats, including less mainstream formats like Ogg Vorbis, which it supports natively.
