It's late, so I hope I get away without posting all my system stats. This one is pretty straightforward. Winamp 5.51 on a Toshiba laptop running Vista. Run AVS in mini, stretched, or multi component mode using Big Bento. Watch the performance tab in Task Manager. Closing the visualization window by switching to shade mode, switching from vis to library or browser, or closing the component window drops CPU Usage to <10%.

Open a visualization window back up and minimize Winamp to the System tray with the vis still open. CPU Usage stays at whatever it was, e.g. 50% for Big Component View with the settings I'm using.

error in in_vorbis.dll by fast opening/closing of winamp

HW:
MB = Asus P5KPL-E
CPU = Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 (2.666 GHz)
Videocard = Leadtek PX8800 GT 512 Mb
Sound = TRUST 514DX 5.1 SOUND EXPERT OPTICAL
RAM: 2x1Gb Kingston DDR2-800 (PC2-6400)

SW:
OS: WinXP SP2 with all latest updates/fixes.
Antivirus: KAV Internet Sequirity 7.0.0.125
Windows Firewall: disabled
Winamp Lite 5.51 (but the problem looks to be same in beta build 160x of version 5.5)

WinAmp settings:
Clear installation after installing/updating of OS. No third party plug-ins used, default configuration but:
completely disabled fade effect, Winamp agent is not used, used language: EN, used Classic Skin.

Following error occures rarely by fast opening/closing of winamp using mouse double-click on mp3-file in Total Commander:

"Winamp has encountered a problem and needs to close."
Details:
AppName: winamp.exe AppVer: 5.5.1.1763 ModName: in_vorbis.dll
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 000017a2

How to reproduce:
1) Go in the file browser to the directory with a lot of mp3 files (the content of files, i.e. used bitrate etc. looks to be not important)
2) Start playing of any file in winamp by mouse double-click in file-browser (in my case - Total Commander)
3) Just after hearing of first sound from file - close winamp by clicking of "X" button on the right top side of Winamp.
4) Repeat quickly operations 2-3 with other files.

The error occures on exit from winamp (i.e. at p. (3) above )

Error may occure with same file, which was played before several times without problems.

Probems with Nullsoft Auto Tagger (ml_autotag.dll)

Hello all,

I wish you a happy new year and want to thank the developers for this great new Winamp version with the new auto tagger for MP3 files.

Unfortunately, this auto tagger has some problems if the database research at Gracenote fails (no info) or reveals erratic data (e.g. due to network problems).

In such cases, the auto tagger crashes Winamp to crash with the following error messages:




This happens when the database queries are all finished and you click "apply changes".

If Winamp then was restarted after the crash, it takes ages for the auto tagger to come up again (after some minutes of hard disk activity).

That's a real pity since on the other hand, the auto tagger does a really good job if it can find valid data in the database.

Steps to reproduce:

Select all files in your collection and click "send to, auto tag".

Locate an MP3 file where the auto tagger fails to fetch new information from the Gracenote database (you can check this in the "new information" pane).

Wait until the database query for at least this file is finished.

Click "apply changes".

Winamp will crash.

Crash with certain Plays for Sure devices and Windows Media Player 11 installed

Affected plugin: pmp_p4s.dll v0.7


This "crash" is more of a sudden closure of Winamp. It almost always disappears suddenly without the Windows XP "has encountered a problem and needs to close" dialog.

Occurs on a clean installed, but behaviour slightly different on the first instance of the problem. Using Bento skin.

Windows XP Home SP2 EN-US
Asus P4P800 SE motherboard;
CPU: 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 Prescott
RAM: 512+256 MB PC2700 DDR RAM
Video card: Sapphire Radeon 9600 Pro 128 MB VRAM, Catalyst drivers 6.14.0010.6571
Sound card: SoundMax Digital Audio (that's integrated audio), driver v5.12.0001.3630
DirectX 9.0

Using Winamp 5.51 Full.

Bug consistently reproducible with a Sansa e280v2, firmware version 03.01.14A. Uncertain of other portable plays4sure devices, but I recall one instance of this same problem on the forums where the solution was identical to my own. Unfortunately, I'm unable to relocate this thread.


Please note that, unless otherwise noted:

"crash" means the application disappears suddenly without warning—the process is NOT still running.

"crash with WinXP dialog" means suddenly closing down and causing Windows to display the "Send Error Report" dialog.


Workaround discovered

In four cases (my own, that of somebody who PMed me privately, and the topic I mentioned previously—both the person asking for help and the person offering it), the workaround has been similar or identical. It involved removing any traces of Windows Media Player 11.

In my case, I had Windows Media Player 11 runtime installed, even though I never installed WMP 11. Uninstalling this "runtime" causes Winamp to be able to interact with the player normally.

This leads me to believe that the Plays4Sure drivers (?) included with WMP 11 somehow cause conflict with the plugin, which was not the case with WMP 10.



To reproduce: (This should reflect what steps I had taken, whether or not they were redundant.)

Common to all
1. Ensure that "Windows Media Player 11 runtime" is installed on the computer. (I assume having Windows Media Player 11 itself installed in full will also cause this bug.)

Method 1
1. Start Winamp normally.
2. Plug Sansa e280 into the computer. Winamp should crash; it MAY crash with WinXP dialog.
3. If it doesn't crash, try playing an MP3 file, or viewing files on the player, or sending a file to the player.

Method 2
1. Plug Sansa e280 into computer.
2. Start Winamp normally. It should crash.

Method 1 on a Clean Install
1. Start Winamp normally.
2. Plug Sansa e280 into the computer.
3. Add files to the Media Library.
4. Restart Winamp.
5. Winamp crashes upon starting. If not, see Method 1 step 3.

Even though you wrote that this was fixed in:
"Post All Winamp 5.5 Official Plugin Bug Reports In This Thread"
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....67#post2281867

This bug IS STILL PRESENT in v5.51!

(Bug) Reading meta data for OGG and M4A extremely slow

Reading meta data for certain file types is VERY slow in v5.51.

When pressing ALT+3 in WinAmp on a OGG or M4A file, it takes quite some time before the window opens. It also affects startup time if there is a OGG or M4A file in the playlist.

Here are some measurements.
( Method: Media Library is closed and only 1 file is in the playlist. Then I close WinAmp and while starting it againg, I keep an eye out for its process in Process Explorer. )

Here are my results:

File size -> IO read bytes -> time taken
----------------------------------------
no file -> 32,194,932 -> 00:02 min
6,766,592 MP3 -> 32,257,571 -> 00:02 min

3,441,219 OGG -> 111,409,655 -> 00:14 min
12,845,387 OGG -> 327,661,396 -> 00:43 min

6,139,649 M4A -> 32,524,274 -> 00:56 min
12,835,068 M4A -> 32,192,756 -> 01:20 min

It somehow takes 311 MB of read IO to start WinAmp with a 12 MB ogg file in the playlist, and while not reading a lot, it takes almost a minute to start up with a M4A in the playlist. Something is not right!

Notice how starting up without a file or starting with an MP3 file in the list, is both instantanious and with low IO.

I have tried placing all files on both local disk and network disk, it makes no difference.

I am using Windows Vista Business and WinAmp v5.51, clean install - NO unofficial plugins installed.

Nullsoft Waveform Decoder Halts User Input Requiring Kill Process

The problem lies with the Waveform Decoder in conjunction with the repeat feature in Winamp.

To replicate this problem do the following:[list=1][*]Remove all items from the playlist.[*]Add a single .wav file to the Winamp Playlist.[*]Turn the playlist repeat feature on if it is not already on.[*]Play the file to make sure that it works.[*]Stop playing the .wav file.[*]Delete or rename the .wav file that Winamp was playing.[*]Open Task Manager and select the winamp.exe process.[*]Now attempt to play the .wav file in the Winamp Playlist that was just deleted or renamed.[*]If Winamp is completely locked up, end the process in task manager.[/list=1]

If it worked correctly, Winamp should go into an infinite loop as it attempts to repeat a playlist of a file or files that don't exist.

As it loops, the Winamp GUI should become completely unresponsive. It will not respond to any type of input. Pressing C to pause or V to stop fails to stop the loop. All user input seems to not be intercepted. It appears that the input is not received by Winamp and if it is received it is not processed.

The infinite loop occurs on other media file formats as well, but when you do it for .wav files it locks the Winamp GUI.

Now because it is exclusive to .wav files, the problem probably lies with the Nullsoft Waveform Decoder v3.15 [in_wave.dll].

I have tested this with mp3 files, wav files, flac files, and ogg files.

The ogg vorbis decoder seemed to not have any problem at all. It recognized that the file no longer existed and it didn't even attempt to play the file and no looping even occurred.

The mp3 and flac decoder sent the playlist into an infinite loop but did not lock up the Winamp GUI.

The wav decoder not only went into an infinite loop, it completely locked up the Winamp GUI and Winamp became so unresponsive that the only way to stop it was to open Task Manager and then end the process.

Ideally I would like to see all the decoding plugins respond to a non-existent file the way the Ogg Vorbis decoder did, that is, not attempt to play a file that doesn't exist and stop the playlist looping after determining the playlist is unplayable. However, that would probably require a significant amount of work on Nullsoft's part because it would probably require a large re-write of the plugin's initialization functions.

I am guessing the fix for this problem then would require modification of the wave decoder plugin's file handling functions to allow the plugin to stop if the file doesn't exist or if the file is not a audio file it can decode.

Please let me know if you guys can verify this bug.

Specs:
Windows XP Pro x64 Service Pack 2
Winamp 5.52
Nullsoft Waveform Decoder v3.15
Sound Blaster X-Fi

Also tested on a second computer:
Windows XP Home
Winamp 5.52
Nullsoft Waveform Decoder v3.15
Sound Blaster Live

I also tested some earlier version of Winamp and they also had this problem.
The problem occurs on both the Nullsoft DirectSound v2.47(d) and Nullsoft WaveOut v2.11(d) output plugins which means that it isn't the output plugins that have the bug.

Thanks for Reading,
The Kandie Man ;-)

Re: Probems with Nullsoft Auto Tagger (ml_autotag.dll)

I get (pretty much) the same thing as Xanadu324 in Winamp 5.52. Winamp crashes when I click "apply changes" after sending a specific file to auto-tag. I've only seen it happen with this one file for me, but I don't know what's special about it. It happens every time with the same file, so it's definitely reproducible.

I don't want to guess at why it is happening, but I get the same error messages as Xanadu324 (except slightly different first message - it's the same, but instead of "abnormal program termination" it reads "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.").

I don't want to publicly share this file, but whoever is going to fix this bug may send me a private message with your email address so I can mail it to you.


I doubt that all the standard system info is really necessary for this bug report, but here goes anyway:
Winamp 5.52 - clean install (with NO 3rd-party plugins)

Skin: default, ie. Bento
Windows XP Pro SP2, english

Re: Probems with Nullsoft Auto Tagger (ml_autotag.dll)

first off, winamp is better than any other program i have found, keep up the great work..

Same exact error.. as quoted below MS C++ error

winamp 5.52 complete (new) install
Vista ultimate all updates
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+
ATI 1950 (newest working vista drivers)
ac97 onbord sound (bad sound but works fine, SPDIF output)

Problem can be reproduced with 8 and 16 bit PCM files. when updating any songs tag (highlight 1-4 songs, right click, send to, auto tag) this works fine. (highlight 5 or more songs, right click, send to, auto tag)will reproduce error in MS C++. works with other file types so far.. if songs are needed please email..

Hope this helps figure out the problem.

Portables Settings (Advanced):
Music Folder \Storage Card\Music
Video Folder \Storage Card\My Documents\My Videos

1. Create a new playlist in the media library under Playlists
2. Add songs
3. Right click on the playlist and send to the WM device

Bug with in_dshow, Unicode, and UDF

A file name containing non-Western characters residing on a UDF file system will not play back in Winamp if it is a DirectShow file.

Specs:
Winamp 5.52 clean (also tested with 5.5), en-US
Windows XP SP2, en-US, with all int'l fonts installed
DirectX 9.0c
Plugin: in_dshow (tested with 1.04 & 1.05)
Skin, system, etc.: N/A

Bug Reproduction: (the easy way)

To help with reproducing this bug, I have posted an ISO image containing some test files that will illustrate this bug. Unzip and burn the ISO image to a disc, or better yet, just mount it using some sort of virtual drive. The .avi files in this test image require a MPEG4ASP decoder (e.g., DivX or XviD).
http://stashbox.org/73484/UDF_TEST.7Z

Bug Reproduction: (the hard way)

1) Get a DirectShow file, like an .avi.

2) Rename it so that it contains a non-Western character, for example, add an Asian character to the file name.

3) Place the file in a UDF file system, either by burning it to an optical disc or creating and then mounting an optical disc image using the UDF file system (Nero or ImgBurn can be used for this)

Notes:

1) This only affects the UDF file system most commonly found on optical discs. If the optical disc was created with ISO+Joliet (without UDF), the problem does NOT occur. If the file is located on the hard disk (only tested with NTFS; haven't tried FAT32), the problem does NOT occur. AFAIK, the problem only occurs with optical discs created using UDF (either UDF by itself or UDF coupled with fallback file systems, like ISO+Joliet+UDF). Unfortunately, because UDF is a superior file system with (ironically) better support for Unicode, UDF is used a lot nowadays (IIRC, Nero defaults to a ISO+Joliet+UDF combination, which IS affected by this bug)

2) This only affects files containing non-Western characters (e.g., east Asian characters). A file containing accented characters like "é" will still work (even though "é" isn't a part of ASCII).

3) AFAIK, this only affects in_dshow. A MP3 file containing non-Western characters residing on a UDF file system works as expected. Vorbis works too. I haven't tested this with all the other input types (since I don't have that many media files).

4) I don't believe that this is a problem with Microsoft's DirectShow itself because other DS apps (such as MPC) are unaffected.

Tested in 5.5 and 5.52

Regression: in_dshow crash with OGM files

This is a regression bug for in_dshow 1.05; when playing OGM files using the OggDS filter, right-clicking on the tray icon to bring up the chapter and audio stream menus will often either not work or result in a crash; I'm reporting this as a in_dshow bug because I never had this problem with any of the previous versions of Winamp (dating back to 2.9x when video playback was first introduced).

* Winamp 5.52 en-US, clean minimal install (only audio playback, video playback, and output selected under multimedia; everything else is unselected)
* Windows XP SP2 en-US
* DirectX 9.0c
* Plugin: in_dshow 1.05
* OggDS versions 0.9.9.5 or 0.9.9.6 (http://www.free-codecs.com/Ogg_Direc...s_download.htm)

Reproduction:
1) Play back an OGM file using the DS filter above and Winamp 5.52
2) Right-click on the OGM tray icon to get the options for chapters and audio streams
3) This will either result in nothing happening or Winamp crashing (attempt to access a null pointer)
4) Replace in_dshow.dll with the version found in Winamp 5.5, repeat, and note that the problem does not occur.

Notes:
I'm not entirely sure if this is a problem with in_dshow.dll and not with OggDS.dll. I suspect in_dshow.dll because this bug never happened with earlier Winamp versions. I checked a number of the recent versions, and determined that the first time this problem cropped up was with the beta for 5.51; 5.51beta, 5.51, and 5.52 are the only versions with this problem. 5.5 and earlier were perfectly okay; the changelog points to a number of changes to in_dshow in 5.51, so I'm suspecting that one of these changes caused a regression. This problem also doesn't crop up with any of the other DirectShow players that I've tried, such as Media Player Classic or Windows Media Player.

Edit:
I think I know what the problem is. I located where the crash was happening, and after referencing the source code for the OggDS filter, it looks like the crash happened in "COggSplitter::Info" at the line "if SUCCEEDED(m_pGraph->QueryInterface(IID_IMediaSeeking, (void**)&pSeek))". It's crashing because m_pGraph is undefined, which leads me to suspect that it was prematurely destroyed. This fits with my observations of what happens when I play an OGM file: the tray icon appears, disappears, and reappears again, which is a behavior new to 5.51. So it seems like that there's an attempt to load and unload filters (edit2: this unloading-reloading seems to happen only the first time I play an OGM file; incidentally, if I start Winamp, play the file, and attempt to access the tray icon, I get a crash, but if I start Winamp, play the file, stop playing, re-open the file without restarting Winamp and then attempt to access the tray icon, it doesn't crash), and that somewhere in this process, something's gone wrong. Referencing a destroyed object instead of the recreated one? Or something else?

I see that I'm not the only one that has encountered the in_vorbis crash @0x17a2 - see CKYHC's post above for 551

All crashes have occured (or are occuring, depending the system and when I have done the tests) at in_vorbis+0x17a2. I've tested the issue on multiple systems, with different Winamp versions (including the current one), the last system is the newest:
-slot A, VIA based motherboard, Intel Pentium 3 processor, using onboard ESS Solo based audio, under Windows XP SP2 (latest DirectX and drivers, full OS updates)
-socket 939, VIA K8T800Pro based motherboard, Athlon64 processor, using onboard Realtek AC97 Audio, tested with both Windows XP SP2 and SP3 RC3264 (latest DirectX and drivers, full OS updates)
-socket AM2, Nvidia 6100 based motherboard, Athlon64 processor, using onboard Realtek High Definition Audio under Windows XP SP2 (latest DirectX and drivers, full OS updates)
-socket 775, P35 based motherboard, Intel Core Duo processor, using onboard Realtek High Definition Audio under Windows XP SP3 RC3264 (latest DirectX and drivers, full OS updates, KAV7.0.1.321)

All systems (except the first one I think) are using (or were using at the time of testing) some kind of Kaspersky based AV solution (different versions of Active Virus Shield, KAV6 and KAV7). I always used the en-us Winamp build. I believe all OSes used (or are using) "Romanian"/"Romania"/"English(US)" for Standards and formats/Location/Language for non-Unicode programs in Control Panel\Regional and Language Options. Default input language - English (US). Additionaly services for Text Services and Input languages - Romanian and (on the 3rd system) German (Germany).

A full mini-dump (~41MB) is available at ftp://iasi.no-ip.org/crash/ , taken on the last system, using Winamp 522. Windbg saved the crash dump file in the Winamp\Lang folder.


Required steps for clean installing Winamp 522 (en-us locale):

* Delete all the files from the previous Winamp install
* Using default language for installing (english)
* Using standard install path (C:\Program Files\Winamp)
* Uncheck in this order:
Winamp Agent
Visualization
User Interface Extensions (this 3 first items are now fully unchecked)
Winamp Library (it remains partially selected)
Winamp Library\Portable Media Player Support\Portable Media Players
Winamp Library\Winamp Media Library (now all Winamp Library appears fully unchecked)
Multimedia Engine\Audio Encoders
Multimedia Engine\Output (Direct Sound output support remains selected)
Multimedia Engine\CDDB for recognizing CDs
Multimedia Engine\Sonic Ripping/Burning Support
Multimedia Engine\Signal Processor Studio Plug-in
* only Multimedia Engine\Audio Playback and Video Playback remains fully selected, besides "Winamp and" "DirectSound output support", which are not optional
* uncheck Winamp Remote, Winamp Toolbar and 50 Free MP3 Downloads from eMusic
* choose Winamp Classic skin in Winamp Setup (on the first run of Winamp; the Classic skin is the only skin available)
* uncheck "Yes, allow anonymous usage statistics"

Now, start Winamp and load an URL, e.g. http://scfire-chi0l-1.stream.aol.com/stream/1024
Start playing the audio stream. Wait between 0 to 20 seconds, then close Winamp while playing that audio stream. If it doesn't crash, try again with a different waiting time between the moment you start playing the stream and the moment when you close Winamp.
I succeeded in crashing Winamp on closing it while playing video, or after longer periods of time, while playing audio.

ReplayGain value overflow?

Software:
Winamp v5.52
Nullsoft Replay Gain Analyser v1.06
Nullsoft Vorbis Decoder v1.53
Windows XP SP2 (fully patched)
DirectX 9.0c


Computer:
AMD Athlon 64 +3000
1 GB DDR
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4
Gainward GeForce FX 5200


Problem:
Replay Gain Analyser plugin writes the following erroneous replay gain values (appear to be overflows) to Mono 44.1KHz Ogg sound files tags:

REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_GAIN +64.82 dB
REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_PEAK 3741825054916382900000000000000000000.000000000
REPLAYGAIN_ALBUM_GAIN +64.82 dB
REPLAYGAIN_ALBUM_PEAK 3741825054916382900000000000000000000.000000000

Removing all the replay gain track/album values and computing them again comes out with the same result every time. However, editing the files so that they are stereo (dual mono) eradicates the problem.

Of over 4000 track analysed it was only the mono files were affected (24 files). I'm unsure as to whether the mono bug is Ogg specific or is wider ranging.

ml_pmp ipod issues

Winamp- 5.52
OS- Windows XP Pro SP2
System- Pentium M 1.8 GHz / 2 GB RAM
Portable- IPOD Nano 2nd Gen (8GB)
Media- All my ripped cd's as MP3 128bit encoded (no strange formats)

Issues:

Sync - When I go to sync it attempts to move my entire media library (25+ GB) to my IPOD, it seems to be ignoring the Playlists tab.

Autofill- I am unsure how this is supposed to work, but I would have thought it would fill the "remaining" space with random songs, not the entire device. It also seems to want to fill my IPOD with more than it can hold.

Playlists- I created playlists to sync with (on my computer) and when I tell them to go to the IPOD they have a random set of songs rather than what I filled them with.
I can however create a playlist directly on the ipod and fill it. When managing playlists on my ipod it would be nice if the del key would remove the song from the list.
It would also be nice if drag and drop worked as well. So that the functionality is the same as the computer media library.

Album art- does not copy over at all (yes the box is checked). Yes I unchecked tried to sync, then checked it again and tried to sync. None of that worked.

Ratings- Unlike itunes, my song ratings don't seem to pass through. I don't know if you have not added this as a feature yet or not.

What I have tried-
Cleaned off all of my content from my IPOD and started fresh several times. I did not however open Itunes and perform a format.

Thanks... Please contact me if you want me to try something or need additional info. I would be happy to help diagnose this.

Memory Leak?

Winamp 5.52
Nullsoft Modern Skins Support v1.32 [gen_ff.dll]
Skin: I use Vortex by Skin Consortium right now

OS: Windows XP SP2
Memory: 2GB RAM

Problem:
There is a nasty GDI object leak in WinAMP. It starts around at 1700 GDI objects and after a longer use of WinAMP with Vortex it climbs up to multiple thousands of used objects. I'm unsure if this is a skinner's bug, but I believe it should be posted here. Please notify me if I should post about the skin settings I'm using.
I think it also happens in other skins, but I'm not sure about that.

How to identify:
1: Run Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del)
2: Select the "Processes" tab
3: Select View->Columns, check GDI Objects. Click OK
4: Keep track of the shown GDI Object count for winamp.exe for a longer amount of time

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
We can't reproduce this with either of the Winamp Modern or Bento skins. Sorry.

thx egg, thats sweet, any idea when the fixed version will be out or is there a beta i can use?

also, the problem seems to occur even if you're only trying to do one song that gracenote has no info for, (as well as the mass send to).

btw, windows media player, which i don't like to use, does have a feature where it 'only adds missing info' which is one of my suggested auto tag options. and, it includes artwork in that function. (like i said, i think autotag needs three options). i could elaborate why i don't like using WMP to handle this given it has some configurability, but suffice it to say its not a good ultimate solution.

thx again, can't wait to get the auto tagger going!

midi plugin

For years it's been bugging me that the winamp in_midi plugin can't open two particular .hmi files properly.

One of them gets its playing time set to 160+ hours due to a stuck loop in one instrument, and the other's play time is 0:00.

Could some knowledgeable winamp dev find out why this is happening? I would love to be able to play these files...
(message me if you require further info or have results)

Hello,

first of all I'm not quite surem whether this is a plugin related problem (but I think so):

The Advanced Title Formating function $abbr, doesnt work exactly as indicated in the example. Final Fantasy VI wont be shortened to FFVI, but to FFV.
So my question is, if this could be changed accordingly.
Upper case letters, numbers (and brackets) should not be stripped out in my oppinion. Would make the titles in my playlist look better.

'Out Absentia (Bonus,Outtakes & Demos)' for example would be shortened to 'OA(&D'

Thank you for your attention

would be neat to have this changed

Doesn't detect my ipod.
Also I don't see the 'portables' item on the left of the media library or in any menu or in the preferences.

update--
needed to "restore" the ipod with winamp (which also reformatted it for windows)

Hello all,

is it possible to see if these bug reports are recognized by the developers and perhaps, how long it will take until they are fixed?

Thank you very much in advance.

hey egg,

add this minor bug to the auto tagger report i made earlier:

very often auto tagger when showing "old info" and "new info" does not display certain characters, just a space for them, such as this symbol:

&

so paul revere & the raiders becomes paul revere the raiders

thx.

also, sometimes the media library doesn't update the fields after auto tagging, or at least it doesn't when sorting by directory.
