small bug:
after a fresh install, when winamp starts with modern skin, the album art panel is hidden behind the main window.
is necessary to rezise, use the windowshade or hide the main window, or disable and re-enable the album art viewer to move-it to a visible area.

Issue loading Large directories into library

I have a directory the has 2800 ripped CDs, I have tried many different ways to get them into the winamp library (as one directory), when I check the computer at a later time (30 min to hours) winamp is no longer running.
I have set winamp to collect data and send it to the developers on crash which its done in the past but this failure does not send a crash report.
Not sure if the file count is too much or if I have one or more corrupt files or ...

Winamp Modern skin, windows no longer linked on start

I am using the Winamp Modern skin, when I start Winamp I get different sections (windows) spread out all over the screen. I re-group them and exit winamp but when I start winamp again it happens again. After 1 setup t worked fine for a few days, but after it happend once it happened 100% of all starts. And occasionally a window moves to a new part of the screen, then after a few starts a different window will un-link and move somewhere else.
I have 5 parts of this skin displayed, Player, Album Art, Playlist editor, media library, the player window always ends up in the upper left corner of my monitor.

I have switched to the beta 0.1 wasapi plugin. The volume slider does not respond correctly, for example when I change the volume in windows mixer for winamp, the winamp volume slider does not readjust to that external change. It instead stays at the previous / now not correct volume.

Really annoying.

THIS!

very annoying indeed, otherwise I would prefer WASAPI plugin

I have seen this mentioned twice i other threads, with no real response / solution. I am a windows 10 user - laptop. I just downloaded the latest 5.8 3660 version. The display is so tiny as to be completely illegible. Even using the 2x (Ctrl+D) "trick" - that only increases the playlist size - along with font if I change that. None of the headings or main/eq button sizes are large enough to see. I'm not geriatric, nor blind. Nigh on 20 years ago, with the old versions, I was able to increase the size of all components - and the buttons would increase in size as well.

I prefer to use the Classic skin, but have experimented with all 4 in this version - all having the same size/legibility issues of the components.

I don't have this issue with any other programs on this computer...

This makes it extremely difficult and frustrating to use. ...and I've always been quite fond of the player!

THANKS!

go back to 5.6 and problem is solved.
since there is no development team ,issues won't be solved anytime soon.

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

Nope, it's not a radiostation just a non stop darkwave music stream

I don't have any 5.8 size issues, but I use Bento.

Are the issues skin specific?

as i also have no issues with the default modern skin
but on a windows 7 laptop i can change size in the old green skin but not on my windows 10 pc.

the bento skin is also sizeable but the default old skin is limited on windows 10

Perfect - solved the problems. This is why change is bad!

As I stated, I experimented with all 4 skins, and some basic options. I am not a tech-wizard, and don't fiddle behind the curtains as you guys seem wont to do though. NJK's solution was just dandy.

My read is the problem with 5.8 ur having is unique to u, since others with 5.8, like myself, are not having it. Doesn't mean there isn't some niche case at play here tho.

I think this is all about if you are using a larger DPI scale instead of 100% which is standard (e.g. using 200% on a 4K display). If so, then it is a winamp/skin problem. Wacup does have modified skins that fix most of the issues for a higer DPI scale

Current status of Winamp: (Winamp 5.8) is not an ongoing project get wacup

5.8 beta issue quick fix - Install 5.666 (there's no further 5.8 releases)

That sounds good, but why would 5.666 fix that?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Misread that going back to the stable release fixed it, I figured it was a DPI issue, but sounds like it was a skin/install issue
