Since 1997, Winamp has been one of the most widely used media players for PC users, but it has since been surpassed by Windows Media Player and Apple's omnipresent iTunes.

It is known for supporting a variety of media file types, and the Winamp team stated that NFT support is now live and functioning in its most recent update announcement on December 7.

Users may now load up the music included in ERC-721 and ERC-1155 tokens created on Ethereum and Polygon by connecting their Metamask wallets from a variety of browsers.

Winamp CEO Alexandre Saboundjian stated in a statement, "The genesis of Winamp has always been about accessibility and innovation, and now we are happy to unveil the very first standalone player reading audio NFTs, as well as any other existing formats."

There may soon be a large selection of Polygon-based music NFTs available as well. On December 7, the developers of the Ethereum scaling solution also disclosed their collaboration with Warner Music and LGND Music on the creation of a "collaborative, digital collectible" music platform.

The platform, known as LGND Music, will launch in January 2023 and offer users a simple on-ramp to purchase and hoard music NFTs.
