It is also working like a charm for me under Win11 x64, my only complain so far is that it still won't support Rich Presence with Discord.
And, to be honest, haven't even noticed the icons issue you mentioned, since I have zero icons on my desktop.

etc., etc.

The WASAPI plugin (as-is) is known not to be functioning properly as noted by DJ Egg. I myself will wait for RC2 since it's very possible the "Not-So-Yasapi" alternate plugin will function at that point.

The Reg hacks you posted - what version of Windows do these come from? One of the links you posted mentioned Windows 8.1 and those links are dated 2008, 2010, & 2018. I know some users are still using Vista/Win 7/Win 8 (or 8.1) but the rest of us have moved on to Windows 10 & 11. Please be careful posting Reg hacks that might harm OS versions they're not intended for.

I have installed Winamp 5.9 on Windows 7 x64. When I try to select one of the standard modern skins (Winamp Modern or Bento) I get an error "You are attempting to use a Modern skin but have not installed the Modern skin support plug-in". And only the classic skin still works:



I also installed Winamp on a clean virtual windows 7 x64. But there is the same error.

After install Winamp 5.9 in my Windows 8.1 computer, I realized about that modern skin support bug. I selected manually that option after install, and it seems to refuse to run correctly the modern skin support.

Anothe question though... Do you plan to make winamp x64 bit someday?
No problem for me. How?

I deleted "Microsoft.VC142.CRT" folder of Winamp.

I already installed and keep using lastest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Runtimes (AIO Repack by @abbodi1406).

Oh, and the download link there leads to some 5.8 beta. Probably has to be updated as well.

Winamp 5.9 RC1 crashes everytime i scan for media files

It crashes with following message found in log book: "Navn på program med fejl: winamp.exe, version: 5.9.0.9999, tidsstempel: 0x62e16f6c
Navn på modul med fejl: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.19041.1806, tidsstempel: 0x39cccd9d
Undtagelseskode: 0xc0000374
Forskydning med fejl 0x000e6fe3
Proces-id 0x72dc"

I know this is in danish, but I hope this is clear anyway. Systems is Windows 10 Pro Swedish Gfx card: GeForce GTX 1080 with latest drivers. When i try to run Winamp in safemode I cannot add files to library. It simply doesn't add anything but just show the Add files window again.

These faulty non-English installations are really surprising, such as certain components like Modern Skin support failing to install properly. I have several different Winamp installations installed and running in Windows 11 and I was able to install 5.9 RC1 in a specially named folder and it STILL runs without any error.

Get your plugins from the Winamp folder, Uninstall Winamp , delete the folder in the program files and go for a clean install instead of upgrading from 5.8 and let us know if that solved the problem.

Hello DJ Egg. Why the decision to abandon the build system? Previously, we could understand that 5.7.0.3444 is the old version and 5.6.0.3516 is the new version. How will version control work?

It was the other way round. The build system abandoned us.
It was originally hosted on an AOL server, which ofc we lost access to back in 2013.
Then Benski wrote a new build script for Jenkins, but that machine died back in 2018 ish, just after we put out 5.8

Benski is currently unavailable :-( so now we just manually build straight from VS2019 and the NSIS script.

We'll reset and switch back to using build numbers for 5.9.1
e.g. 5.9.1.0001 or whatever

But for now, the build number will stay as 5.9.0.9999 for this release
and will only be identifiable by the beta1, rc1, final etc. part of the filename - and the timestamp.

WA 5.9 has a problem with the EQ presets, it is loaded in another language.
I already deleted the file in "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Winamp\Winamp.q1"
but it has not been solved.

So for bugs????

Hi! First of all as a near 40 year old computer admin and using winamp with windows xp, I am extremely happy that a new release was created! Buuut I have a bug to report. I opened a flac file and it played perfectly fine. I opened an mp3 file and all I heard were weird noises... I can assume it migh be the lack of a CODEC on my machine
Machine specs:

11th Gen Intel i711800H
32 GB RAM
OS: Windows 10 Pro
Version: 21H2
OS Build: 19044.1826
Experience: WIndows Feature Pack 120.2212.4180.0


Thanks in advance!

Thank you. I understand that you used a neural network to improve the picture. It needs some more work on it to make it look great, but anyway this one looks better than the pixelated one. So thanks.

I just installed and I realized that Queue Manager feature is missing. That one with the shortcut Q or Alt+Q. I often use this feature but now it's not there anymore. I was upgrading from version 5.666.

I easily have a larger music library than you do, and I have no issue with album art processing and displaying in the Media Library.

Let me ask you this - did you install 5.9 RC1 over an existing Winamp installation? If so, I'd like to suggest removing the previous version and installing 5.9 RC1 fresh and then we can go from there.

Technical points aside, 5.9 is sounding extremely good. I believe it sounds even better than Signalyst HQPlayer 4 Desktop, priced 199€, which I have been using for years and considered it the second best in the world (after Bug Head Emperor).
Especially sonically improved is Nullsoft MPEG Audio Decoder v4.4. I did a blind A/B test comparison with the old Nullsoft MPEG Audio Decoder v4.103 and 4.4 shows considerably greater depth, better definition and particularly better transient response. But formats like FLAC or m4a also sound better than on Winamp 5.666.

Please read the release notes. The presets showing in Japanese (?) is a *known* issue.

Gads...not only is this discussed in the release notes, it has been discussed *ad nauseam* on this very thread! Bottom line: Do a *fresh* install (don't install over 5.666 or 5.8) and *wait for RC2* wherein some or most of the 3rd party plugin issues will be resolved.

So, in general, if Winamp is working perfectly for me, I should probably leave it alone? Wait for another release if I use a lot of plugins and need them to keep working?



Sounds like that's the best thing to do for those of us who don't want to mess things up but thanks so much for the new release Hopefully it'll just get better and better

It's what I'm choosing to do. 5.9 RC1 is the first release candidate after what I believe was a year of closed beta testing. It has known issues and yet I'm finding it extremely stable. There is a manifest hack that allows some 3rd party plugins to work but I'm not going to risk blowing up my present install, not when there's a good chance that these issues will be resolved either in RC2 or a later 5.9.1.

I have multiple versions of Winamp running merely by having installed them in folders titled \winamp5666 or \winamp58 or \winamp59 or \wacup, etc. You have to name them that in the installer. This way they all run separately. However, I have all file associations pointing to 5.9 RC1.

There are 4 ea, 3rd party plugins that run as-is with no hacking:

NXS Big Clock
gen_lyricsplugin.dll (the one that grabs lyrics)
Album Art 0.6 (can be found earlier in this thread by DJ Egg)
Perfect Declipper

I'm certain there are more. Have you tried a clean install and then try adding the plugins one-by-one to see which work and don't work?

I'm happy to provide links for the other 3 in the list.

To comment on the replacements for Gracenote, not a fan of the projected possibilities, would it be easier to renew the contract with Gracenote or work out a new agreement... I loved the integration when it was present, fixed a lot of tags with Winamp in it's hay day, would love to restart again knowing that the tagging feature would be 97% accurate

BTW, congrats on the new revision, keep on the hard work

I am very nearly jumping for joy at this. People kind of laugh when I say I'm still using Winamp because I love it so much, but it truly is my go-to, my only, music player on my laptop. To hear you're updating it? Best news all week. Love love love!

I did it twice and the only one way to make it work properly from Windows 8.1 (64-bits) is via safe mode.
