Spotify launches Spotiamp, a music player in honour of Winamp

We told you recently about the possibility of Winamp surviving the December 20th shutdown.

And guess what? It’s still alive, which means negotiations are indeed going on with the unnamed buyer.

While we wait on more news from that front, Cloud music service Spotify have done something to honour the Classic Media Player. And it literally is a classic tribute.

Meet Spotiamp, a music player with the looks of the Winamp Classic Skin.



The application features a playlist window, and an equalizer very much like the original one. It also supports the visualization plugins of Winamp, and also has its own Shoutcast server which you can use for streaming your music.

Well, before you get excited, let me tell you how Spotiamp works, and it may not be good news.

First of all, here is the list of Countries where Spotify is available:

Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Colombia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States

The list of supported Countries isn’t very many, is it?.

Now, you need to have Spotify Premium to use the application, and you cannot use the application offline. You have to login to your Spotify account and click on the eject button to get your Playlists.

On the bright side, the Spotiamp player is available for free and is a very small download, approximately 400kB for the installer, and 375kB for the portable version.

Download Spotiamp from the official website.
