Winamp 2.80 Bug

In Winamp 2.80 the player would lock-up
when I tried to click on a mp3 when the
song lengths would get listed. I reverted
back to 2.79 and I don't have this problem.

I'm using
Windows ME,
700Mhz
192MB RAM
30GB HD.

And you needed to register twice to post this?

First of all, install Peter's official wa2update patch.

There's been a fair few reports of problems with the initial release of 2.80 and these are all being fixed as we speak. The new improved v2.80 should be up & available in the next couple of days.
If wa2update doesn't fix the problem, I recommend you go back to 2.79 until the (known) issues are all fixed (hopefully very soon).

If the problems persist, then read the sticky topics at the top of this forum.

Firstly I'm not related to the speaker256 poster.
Secondly I wasn't sure if this was problem that
Nullsoft was aware of thats why I reported it.

bleh

So, what's the score with this Speaker256 dude then?
Why the straight copy when a simple "me too" would've done?
(ok, so the sys specs are slightly different, bleh again..lol)

Anyway, Konaguy, did wa2update help, or does the problem still occur?

Peter, any news of when the fixed version will be up?
btw, I'm not gonna answer any more posts relating to 2.80 until it is.

I was kinda surprised by Speaker256 that he copied nearly
all I posted except the computer stats.

Anyway I think I will stick with 2.79 until the bugs
in 2.80 are fixed, unless I feel adventurous and re-install
2.80 and apply the patch.

I have this problem too, I mean the lock-up problem.
I'm back to 2.79 because I have no solution at this time, even with the patch.

Win98 SE
Pentium III 500 mhz
Standard sound card

what kind of "standard sound card" would that be ? sounds like a soundcard driver bug.

I dont think its anything to do with our computers
or our sound cards. If you read this thread you'll
see its Winamp 2.80 issue.

look, i know exactly what changed between v2.79 and v2.80. this problem *does not* occur on any of my systems. also, seems that no one of you can tell me what soundcard they use so i assume that it's one of those onboard AC97 things; their drivers are known to be buggy; go get latest ones from windowsupdate or something. if you want quick fix, just go to winamp preferences / output / plugins and select DirectSound.

If there is no problem why was there a patch created
for this issue ? *sigh* Atleast on my computer in
Winamp 2.80 I can't click on the playlist until
all the mp3 durations (times) are loaded or it locks
up when I click on a mp3 before the durations (times)
are loaded.Winamp 2.79 *DOES NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM*.

My sound card is Crystal WDM Audio

yeah, "Crystal WDM Audio" quite explains it, there have been reports of their drivers doing weird things before. read my previous post again.

But you never answered my question why was there a patch
created when there was no problem ? So I guess Winamp
2.80a is just a mirage and I will just stick with 2.79

Incidentally my soundcard is not AC97, nor I have seen
them have soundcard drivers on Windows Update. I have
mucked up one computer updating the soundcard before
and I dont want to do that again, especially since
it looks like a Winamp problem (read the begining of the
thread) even more so since a patch was created for it.

v2.80a IS real and it IS on the download server (setup files are labelled still v2.80 though). seems that all of you people have onboard audio chips; this is a semi-proof that it's not a bug in Winamp (but we'll see). do you still get that in v2.80 if you change output plugin to DirectSound ? i want to know it, it's critically important if you ever want to see a workaround for all this (otherwise we don't know which part triggers it).

I downloaded Winamp 2.80, uninstalled 2.79 and installed 2.80
(Its says its 2.80 under version history). To make a long story
short, the problems I was having in the orginal 2.80 have
gone away in 2.80a

freakish. nice to hear that it's fixed though, i really didn't expect v2.80->v2.80a upgrade to fix it. you didn't change output plugin config did you ?

ok, this is getting bloody, i need exact info about freeze conditions. AGAIN: is it related to the output plugin you use or not ? do you still get it after switching to DirectSound (in preferences / plugins / output) ? does copying older winamp.exe to directory with v2.80a installed fix it ?

winamp 2.80a

Upgrading to the latest winamp 2.80a has fixed my problem, of the machine freezes when playing mp3 files. Going back to 2.79 also worked just fine. I did that before 2.80a came out. Thanks for your help. I won't be posting through copy and paste again, as I see now it leads to trouble. Sorry for that. The machine stats were real though. So just to clarify I am having no problems with the latest winamp. Later.

The problem in detail is I start-up Winamp, load the playlist
but the durations are not loaded. When I click on a MP3 it
hangs for a short time, then the MP3 plays (This is with the
default WaveOut output plugin.

I changed the output to DirectSound, restarted my computer.
and restarted Winamp and I didnt have any problems even
when the durations were loading.

ok, the only diagnosis i can think of is "your soundcard drivers are b0rk, tell all this to your soundcard manufacturer instead"; the only solution is to switch to DirectSound output (in preferences/plugins/output); adding this to common bugz post (it was kinda mentioned there already). will be hopefully fixed in v2.81; but it's not our bug anyway and it seems that v2.79->v2.80 out_wave skipping fix triggers it (maxed out thread priority for waveOut API calls).

I am having the slow loading of mp3 problem

Hey, just to add a line here, i have a problem with 2.8a. My computer loads the mp3s slow. I never had this problem with 2.79 so i am thinking something is wrong here. when i had 2.8 it did freeze... so i upgraded. well 2.8a works, but is slow sometimes loading the file. My stats are:

1 ghz pentium 3
256 megs ram
Windows ME
ESS Maestro sound card (WDM)
Dell inspiron 8000

Anyway.. i dont know if this had been stated, since i didnt feel like reading all 30 posts. hope this helps lay this bug to rest.

Brad
