Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #19100 (May 10th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #19100 (May 10th 2024) (x86 only)


NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

Preview Build Discussion / Can't Play aac or wma Files
« Last post by arealhuman on May 18, 2024, 11:01:57 AM »
Hi - thanks for accepting me onto the forum  :)

I'm running the latest build of WACUP - Public preview v1.99.13.19100 (May 10th 2024) - on an up-to-date install of Windows 11.  I can't get WACUP to play aac or wma files.  The files load in WACUP but don't play.  It may well have been like this in previous builds, I certainly had some files that didn't play, can't recall if these were any of these.

Can anyone offer any help please?

On a different note, I'm so grateful someone is building on Winamp, WACUP is destined to be truly great.  Thank you.

I think this is the key piece:

Winamp will remain the owner of the software and will decide on the innovations made in the official version," explains Alexandre Saboundjian, CEO of Winamp.

If that is the case I don't think that it's Open Source.

And if you read carefully, no mention of Open Source anywhere :-)

There's also a PDF of a press release that, more or less says the same.

https://www.llama-group.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/2024-05-16-open-source-en.pdf

It can be argued that their wording implies it'll be open source, though it's not mentioned under what license it'll operate (is it GPL? BSD? MIT? WTFPL? No one knows!) or that it'll be found in a git repository either on Github or some hosted instance.

If there's anything any one of us should've learned from previous announcements, they'll either not hold their own deadline, or they do follow through and it's behind closed doors with you being required to sign up. It's noteworthy that they fired most of the people working for them, so they might as well get people to do the work for free.

TL;DR: Don't get your hopes up.

It more than likely won't be released in the manner you (or anyone) would expect

Hi all,

Radionomy just announced that they will release the original Winamp source code:

I wonder if there still would be any interest for WACUP development? Or is it too late?

Please look at the known issues section on the preview download page which have suggestions on what to try doing.

Eris

it would have been a great disappointment if you had taken this for granted.

If anything it'll be "available" to people who sign up, or it'll be on github with a weird license that might as well be the most restrictive possible, I don't know, I'll remain skeptical until it really happens.
