An awesome new Now Playing experience is available in the Winamp Media Player (PC Desktop) with an updated design and new content.
The new Now Playing is full of exciting features:
You'll now see a tablet reader style design that's responsive to your player size and fits neatly alongside your player controls. Want to see more content? Make your player bigger and more stories will float in. Need to save space? Make your player smaller and stories will float to a new smaller page size. You will find yourself doing this over and over just to watch the cool animation.
Auto-Refresh & Search:
Now Playing refreshes with every track change to display content about the artist of the currently playing track. This is a great companion for listening to a SHOUTcast radio station or Winamp playlist.
Top Content & Specific Content Sections:
Each Now Playing artist page is presented in a modular intuitive design, with a "TOP" tab – which presents the top article, video, latest tour dates, and bio summary, and sections - for drilling down into each content type section (e.g. all videos for the artist).
We've added new partners to a shiny new real-time backend to provide better content, cover more artists, and deliver a faster experience.
Relegence, a neighbor here at Aol, aggregates articles in real time about each artist. We've also teamed with the biggest names in music content: Vevo for videos, Wikipedia for bios, Musicbrainz for artist directory and discographies, and Jambase for tour dates (and we're not stopping here – stay tuned for more).

One part genius. Three parts llama. And a sprinkling of corporate AOL. That's what Winamp is all about.
