5.541 fails on flac file, DONAR plays fine

on Win/XP service pack 3. 100s of CDs ripped by EAC to flac. overwhelming majority of files play fine. some 400 or so are just skipped over when I try to play them. Blue Oyster Cult copy of Roadhouse Blues, for ex. Notice that's a capital-O-umlaut. strangely, that may be significant. Donar Player plays them just fine.

full uninstall and reinstall
Information required when posting

The my_plugin_list is a big one. Have a feeling you may have the "FLAC Reference Decoder" installed under the input plugins. If you do, remove it.

now why would this be?
- not re-installed
- no plug-ins added or deleted
- CD not re-ripped
- WinXP not re-booted
- but ---- playlist was cleared and rebuilt

the 400 Blue Oyster Cult and other files now seem to be processing fine.

sigh.

Dead links in the playlist, at a guess.

Maybe you moved or renamed some of the files after initially ripping them?

Not that I recall.

But I did not create an extensive log of what I did. I mean, take notes about what I did when. These files have not played since being ripped in August. Since then, WinAmp (same release) was uninstalled/installed. WinAmp was restarted a few times. Ripped a few more CDs. I had two playlists: everything that played, and everything that wouldn't play. Then with these new flac files I decided to build a new "everything" playlist, and when I played it, the unplayables played. Go figger.

By the way, the file location remains
"...BlahBlahBlah\Blue Oyster Cult\BlahBlahBlah..." where the 'O' is actually xD6.

The error seems to be in the WinXP "dir" command, also seen in the MKS "ls" command.

The failing sequence:
dir /s /b >playlist
Funny characters aren't correct. In one filename, a character seems to be xE9 but "dir" and "ls" write out x82. WinAmp can't find the file.

Playing the files by selecting the .flac files works, presumably because WinAmp is better at handling funny characters.

Yeah, Winamp supports unicode chars.
It also supports creating unicode playlists...
Playlist Editor -> Manage Playlist button -> Save Playlist -> Save as type: M3U8 (Unicode) Playlist.
