WACUP (which can be pronounced as wakeup or wac-up or however you prefer it in your native tongue) is a vision of what a media player should be whilst still being compatible with the plug-ins for some of the most popular media players that you are used to. A media player that's made to emulate some of your favourite media players from the past & bring them into the future.
WACUP is heavily based around a plug-in system making it simple to tailor you WACUP install to be what you want it to be. When its finally out of being a preview build an SDK will eventually be offered so new plug-ins can then be made to add additional features.
WACUP is still under development with a functioning preview build that can be downloaded. As this is pre-release software there can be issues which can be reported in the preview discussion forum. We recommend installing this WACUP Preview build into it's own separate directory from your existing software install until it is feature complete.
There are beta builds with limited access to only the registered beta testers. This is not ready for a wider audience & is intentionally limited to avoid causing issues for those that just don't pay attention & support headaches for myself. WACUP will be free to download & to use.

WACUP consists of new plug-ins to add additional features to the last AOL provided Media Player (5.666 Build 3516) as well as making use of the benefits of original media player being heavily based on a plug-in system to allow replacements to be created which provide better implementations over the native plug-ins. By including and updating other 3rd party skins and plug-ins, it should be able to provide something for most users who care about WACUP and want to keep using it for the years to come.
WACUP project is being actively developed. However, it is still beta software. If you want, you can help create and develop WACUP by becoming a beta tester. You can also support the project financially or in any other way (tests, promotion, etc.).
You can now download the preview version that shows the current progress of the project. It is published publicly at monthly intervals.
