The pre-holiday time is always good for music lovers. Not to0 long ago, we introduced the innovative music player Beat. Now, it’s good time to say hello to our good ol’ friend XDA Senior Member ssuukk and his most noteworthy application: XenoAmp. Just over a month ago this much loved music player gained the ability to control the Viper Audio equalizer. Since then, quite has changed.
A few weeks ago, AOL announced that the llama whipping era was over, and they shut down Winamp. SHOUTcast, a part of Winamp designed to stream Internet radio, shared the same fate. There are rumors flying around stating that Microsoft is planning on purchasing rights to both. But for now,Winamp and SHOUTcast are relics of history.
Previously, XenoAmp used SHOUTcast as its main Internet radio provider. But because of SHOUTcast’s demise, the new king of streaming in XenoAmp is now Dirble. Some stations still require an updated API, but ssuukk is in touch with the Dirble developers, and all necessary changes will be implemented by both parties soon.
It’s really nice to hear that XenoAmp is still under active development and in good shape, despite all of unfortunate events. The newest version of this app with Dirble support can be found in the application thread._________
