you just need to wait for the next beta (which shouldn't be that long from coming) or use the work around as suggested in my previous post

File type sniffing

Apologies if this has been posted, I didn't read the whole thread.

I have some cover art in PNG format but named as folder.jpg because Windows XP doesn't treat folder.png specially. (Fixed in Vista, I believe.) It works anyway because Windows uses the GDI+ library which sniffs the file to determine the format instead of looking at the extension. Winamp currently doesn't work with this. Here's how to sniff image files:

- GIF files start with "GIF8"
- JPEG (JFIF) start with 0xFF 0xDF 0xFF 0xE0, then a 2
byte length, then "JFIF" 0x00
- PNG start with 0x89 "PNG" 0x0d 0x0a 0x1a 0x0a
- BMP start with "BM"

Have you tried having both folder.jpg and folder.png?

Yeah, it works but it's annoying. Also, it turns out I have rather a lot of other album art in the wrong format (it *cough* came that way) quote apart from this deliberate PNG use.

Here's what I think is the salient point: WMP works the same way as Windows, and you wouldn't want people to find things "became broken" when they switched, would you?

One more: how about loading front.* ?

Will the Classic skins be able to have the album art window in the final release?

Will it be easy for skin developers to incorporate a winamp album art object into their skins? I can't wait to see what people do with that!

I'm just waiting for someone to take advantage of the API's new Album Art functionality to write a plugin for Object Dock / Rocket Dock / SysStats...

Cheers,

Is this item from the wishlist addressed.

Play music files with fullscreen vis plugin, and fullscreen video files consecutively in same playlist.

Winamp plays my music video clips fine (only in classic skin - modern slows the playback too much) The downfall is it can't switch to vis in the video screen for audio only files.

Looks like it'll be really good as I've heard this after long time, that too frequently in the past few days... "Its worth the wait!" Will someone break the suspense before the next beta?

Nice little addition I just found:

I've never noticed it there before and I tinker with my ATF string all the time. Was it added in this version?

Yep, this is a known issue in certain locales (Sweden, Finland, Lithuania have been reported so far). The fix will be in the next beta, due out shortly.

Knock it off already, heard enough of that.

You can change your regional settings meanwhile if you like.
Open run and type intl.cpl and press enter. There you can change standards and formats to the english ones or to whatever suits you best(Just stay away from the ones Benksi mentioned). WA should now look ok again!

I went into Windows Firewall and added an exception for Winamp and tried again, with the same result. Is there a specific port that needs to be open at the hardware level?

/edit - And I've tried it with many songs, including different artists, genres, completely different decades, nothing has returned any results.
I have exactly the same issue. First with Build 1500 and now with build 1504 Too bad it sounds like a great feature.
