Winamp was part of the MP3 revolution in the 1990s and early 2000s. With the popularity of new media players such as VLC, it began to quiet down. Winamp is a relatively lightweight and fast player that can be truly customized. It has a minimal interface and tiny playback controls that can be hidden in a corner of the screen, or you can use advanced tools such as search bar, library and artist information to blow it up in multiple windows to occupy the entire screen.

If you are one of the people who liked early Winamp, then you will love the Winamp Skin Museum, which houses more than 65,000 searchable and fully interactive Winamp skins. Users can also upload skins to the browser-based Winamp 2 version of Webamp. The museum also allows users to upload audio files from their computers.

On the website, the Winamp Skin Museum is described as an attempt to create a “fast, searchable and shareable” interface for the collection of Winamp skins accumulated in the Internet archive.

The museum was created by Facebook engineer Jordan Eldredge. He tweeted in February that he “trained an ML model to generate screenshots of Winamp skins.” As they “become very interesting”, he took the “next step”, which was “try to generate actual skins.”

In a subsequent tweet, he posted a post and told his followers to “watch the progress in this post.”

He also participated in Webamp as a side project. In addition, he has a robot that publishes a different Winamp skin every few hours, which can be loaded directly into the browser via Webamp.

Overall, Eldredge’s project is a great tribute to one of the popular media players we used on the PC before. Winamp is compatible with multiple platforms, including Windows, macOS and Android.
