AOL Media Player is using XUL
According to this article at Beta News the new AOL Media Player is built atop the company's Communicator XUL user interface framework.
Surprisingly, AOL Media Player is not based on AOL's Winamp platform, only utilizing Winamp's "Unagi" playback engine. Instead, AOL Media Player is built atop the company's Communicator XUL user interface framework. Communicator was first unveiled in beta form two years ago and eventually evolved into Fanfare.
Update: AOL Media Player is NOT using XUL at all. AOL Communicator also does NOT use XUL. They are both built using wxWindows.
Thanks to Daniel Glazman for the comment. The article at Beta News has now fixed the misunderstanding and the quote reads:
AMP is built atop the company's Communicator user interface framework.
Probably a serious misunderstanding in this article at BetaNews : AOL Communicator does not use XUL at all, it is built using wxWindows.Comment by Daniel Glazman at December 10, 2004 10:37 AM | Permalink
