Not only this, but certain types of files are causing Winamp to lock up. The video and audio continues to play, but the program cannot be interacted with.

5.7 Beta doesn't play MPG files

I had to use an older version of the mplayer plugin and suddenly MPG files work; the only problem is that the mplayer plugin doesn't allow scrolling through the file. What's up with that, anyway?

MPG (MPEG-1/MPEG-2 video) support is provided via the Nullsoft DirectShow Decoder plugin (in_dshow.dll).
This means that it relies on whatever DirectShow MPEG Splitter/Filter/Decoder is already installed on the system.

What's your Windows OS?

Is MPG in the extension list in in_dshow config (Prefs > Plugins > Input > in_dshow > config)?

When you attempt to play an mpg in winamp, does anything happen at all, or does it just skip over the playlist entry?
If it looks like it's playing (or attempting to play) but there's no audio/video, what does it say are the currently used filters via right-click playlist entry > "View File Info (Alt+3)"?

The usual solution is to install FFDShow and enable mpeg1 & mpeg2 in ffdshow video decoder config,
though you might also need to enable the relevant codec in the ffdshow audio config...
and if your OS is Windows 7 or 8, then you might also need to install the Win7DSFilterTweaker tool to force the system to use ffdshow instead of Microsoft codecs.

Yup, it isn't pretty, but alas, we're not licensed to include a native MPEG-2 video decoder (they cost a small fortune, unless you have some special relationship with the licensor...).
Also note that the mplayer plugin uses the included mplayer decoder library.

I get an instant crash. It's a DVD Mpeg-2 video with PCM audio.

I followed your instructions but still get the crash.

More info is required (eg. an InfoTool log)
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....161361#plugins

Windows OS?
What's the details of the crash error message? Any crash logs?
Did you uninstall the mplayer plugin, or is it the (unsupported) mplayer plugin which is causing the crash?
Have you installed any other 3rd-party plugins, and if so, which ones?
Did you also set "Uncompressed" to "All supported" in ffdshow audio decoder config > codecs?

I'm unable to use InfoTool to read the files because dropping them into the playlist also causes the crash. I can provide the following information, however:

All of my MPG files produce this crash; here is at least one AVI file that causes it as well, though most of them work.

I've tried this on fresh installs of Winamp with no extra plugins installed. I've tried using the Essential Pack, and I've tried with and without K-Lite as well as the standalone FFDShow. I did try setting uncompressed to "all supported" and I used the tweak tool to try to force Windows not to use Microsoft codecs.

The only thing that shows results is the in_mplayer plugin, but that has its own set of problems so I'm avoiding it for now.

Strange, this was the first time I noticed MADFilter.ax being mentioned. I'd had to install that a while back to keep Fallout 3 from stuttering, so I unregistered it. Still getting crashes, but I'm back to what I noticed was the original log:

you're not using a current version of Winamp - that's a version from over 2 years ago. either install 5.63 or the 5.7 beta which has the means to send crash reports (if you allow it) which is more likely to help track down the cause of the issue and see if a solution can be created.

I was testing with 5.7 at the time of my original post, but reverted to an old (and painstakingly customized) installation of 5.60. I assume the error logs are the same across versions.

using 5.7 beta should not have any effect on your customisations.

i'm only suggesting it (or at least using the current build) as there have been many fixes to things since the version you're still trying to use and it doesn't make it easy for anyone on the dev team who might be considering looking into the issue to do so when it's so far behind the current code base.

is up to you what you do - i am just making a suggestion which would potentially make it easier to help to determine the cause and try to fix it which the 5.7 beta and it's crash reporter can help with (seeing as i'm looking at the crash reports coming through daily).

Gotcha, I was just trying to be clear that I wasn't mistakenly using an older version when I started the thread.
