AOL completes sale of Winamp, Shoutcast Earlier this week, AOL completed the sale of Winamp and Shoutcast, ending a month-long search for a new owner after the company had announced it was going to shutdown the popular media player and radio service.
AOL saw a storm of outrage after they announced Winamp would be shut down in December, with even getting its own petition to have the software open-sourced and kept alive.

The acquiring party is Radionomy, a Belgium-based aggregator of online radio stations.

Radionomy may not be a household name, but it does have 6000 stations in its catalog, with anyone allowed to create their own. Shoutcast, by comparison, has over 50,000 stations in its catalog.

Does this mean that Winamp will stay as is or will there be some changes?
