So, it's been a while since I last posted here and I don't even know if anyone of my old friends and followers will even get the chance to read this post. I don't plan to go into the details of the last 10+ years. Life just happened, as they say. However, for a couple of months some old AVS people have been hanging out in various chats and we have now found a new home on Discord. As you might have heard – there has been a bit of buzz – Jordan Eldredge's has reimplemented Winamp 2 in JavaScript. This project is know as Webamp, and includes a collaboration with the Internet Archive. Together the two also host the Winamp Skin Museum. Through all this, we got into touch with Jordan and have our own #avs channel on Discord. We primarily talk about the development of a new AVS version by @grandchild, but also about other, related projects such as now-abandoned Webvs. Either way, if you're interested or think you can contribute to one of these projects, feel invited to join us

But for a group of people busy in the visual field, our website had all been remarkably text-based. Sure, we had screenshots here on DevianArt, or on Customize, Winamp and some other sites that are long gone. It was possibly difficult for outsiders to get an idea of our craft, but that is abo

As a follow-up to the provocatively titled End of AVS, here are some good news. Thanks to Moonbeam13 (https://www.deviantart.com/moonbeam13) and the deviantart developers, it is now possible to upload .pimp files to the visualization galleries. This is probably the best results for both sides: AVS artists can still distribute an installable format while DeviantArt does not have to worry about corrupted executables. Now, what does this mean for AVS artists? You might not have known, but for several years, PimpBot has produced two files: 1. an installer for distribution (.exe) 2. a project file (.pimp) These project files contain all the data for the installer and can be loa

Hey, I'm interested in being of service to the AVS community somehow, how can I help resurrect the former glories of VISBOT?
