After end of Winamp support wondering if the connection to the Shoutcast in Winamp Library is already broken? Is there any substitution or plugin (for connection to a radio databases) when I want to use Winamp to continue? I don't mean web services, which is enough.
thanks for the tip

I still use streaming radio in Winamp(shoutcast and all). Winamp was also purchased by another company. You should see some updates in the future.

Maybe some servers are down, but it should all be sorted in time.

I'm listening to Uncle Sams' Misguided Children radio right now, which is a Shoutcast station, using Winamp on my phone right now.
Tell us more about the equipment (phone or PC) you are using, and what error messages or other symptoms you are getting. Is there a network you need to log into first before you can access streaming content?

Same here for me guys.. I re-installed winamp and now "online services" gets error :
The page cannot be found
HTTP 404 - File Not Found
Winamp was able to connect to the server for this Online Service, however the service has returned an error indicating that the page requested can not be found. This may be caused by a broken link, or other problem with the Online Service.

Try Again


Any solutions? Thanks..

Winamp's own services may still be done until the new owner gets everything back up.

I guess you may have to try other channels. Maybe some did get hosted right from the nullsoft servers.

Since they got bought out, they are still restructuring the website. Once they are done, hopefully things will return to normal.

The channels I listen to have servers run by the channels or other third parties them selves and have not been effected. They are still running shoutcast for sure.

They still have a list of shoutcast servers here.

Yes, something is wrong for sure then.

By any chance did Windows decide to not allow this new program to access the internet?

You know I just checked and also have no online services(never actually used it from the media library in years), but any Shoutcast from my playlist or Winamp site are working fine.

I have had this installed for years. Tested multiple computers.

Maybe your friend has some kind of IE browser cache holding data because I do not have it on any computers(not that I ever used it that way in the past.).
