Certain MP3s crashing Winamp

A group of MP3s that I have are crashing Winamp 5.5 whenever it either plays them or comes across them in the playlist. Windows Media Player and Irfanview both play the mp3s correctly, but Winamp occurs an exception and crashes (and the JIT debugger asks me if I would like to debug it, etc...I press no and it closes.)

I have uploaded one of the MP3 files that are crashing Winamp - it can be found at the following link:

http://stashbox.org/50236/07%20My%20...Girlfriend.mp3

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Qb_Master

I haven't looked at or downloaded that MP3, but it and others may have corrupt id3v2 tags. So try this...

in_mp3 patch for Winamp 5.5
Fixes crashing/lockups on some mp3's with corrupt id3v2 tags

Aha yep that did the trick, thank you. Is this bug going to be fixed in 5.51 upon its release?

Well, it's the MP3s that you have with the corrupt tags that contain the "bugs" and not Winamp. But yeah... the next release will no longer need the patch.

And yer welcome

Note that I just summarized the fixes into one "corrupt id3v2 tags" category.

There's 3 or 4 different fixes in the patch, and another 3 or 4 more fixes in the latest internal version. Most relate to corruption in the headers or id3v2 tags, but one or two relate to an id3v2 unsynchronization bug caused by iTunes when embedding album art into the tags.

Your mp3 came into this category.

I'm not sure if the public patched version will allow you to also now see the embedded art in the Artwork tab of File Info (Alt+3) for that file, but you can see it in the latest internal version.

Winamp 5.35 and earlier didn't support album art, so was never affected by these unsynchronization bugs. The patch just includes workarounds for these bugs.

Naturally, the fixes in the patch will also be included in the next release of Winamp.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm having the same issue. I'm running Winamp v5.8 Build 3660. Some mp3's make Winamp, crash for no reason.

For anyone having same issue: Get a program called TAG & RENAME! You need to edit the tags embedded in the mp3 files.
