parital rip doesn't produce m3u or pls file

If I rip the entire album, an m3u and/or pls file is created as it is set up.

However, a partial rip from the cd with the "rip selected tracks" does not output either an m3u or pls file.

Weird Playlist Bug

At least I think it's a bug. Anyways, here's how to reproduce.

Open winamp, open a playlist from the Playlist, add a file and save the playlist. Then, load another [different] playlist WITHOUT opening the ML [you can do it within the playlist editor]. Once the other playlist is open, close winamp. Then, open it up and the original playlist that was saved has not kept its changes. You have to open the playlist again in order to get your changes back for the original playlist.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug? If anyone can reproduce, please reply. Hope this can get fixed.


[Edit --> DJ Egg]

umm, are you saving the playlist to the ml,
after adding files to it in the pl?
They're not dynamically linked.
ie. you add a file to the playlist in the ml,
then play it from there,
not the other way round.

Reading CD

Winamp 5.01
WinXP + SP1
Asus A7N8X-deluxe, 2400+, 128M
Asus GeForce 5200
nVidia nForce 5.1
DirectX 9.0b

This problem only happens with winamp, when I'm playing and try to copy the information on a CD to the hard drive the music begins to generate gaps (like an helicopter) it's like its using all the cpu, but its not the meter of cpu at most reaches 7%

So everything can't be done through the PL? I have to add files through the media library, then launch it the the PL? Or is there another way around.

As I said, they're not dynamically linked.
So, you either edit the playlist in the library, then send it to the playlist window.
Or you edit the playlist in the playlist window and then send it to the library, thus overwriting the old stored playlist.

multiple instances bug

When you launch winamp with quicklaunch and the agent simultaneously, two winamp instances are
spawned. (NO multiple instances option set)

Story: I logged in and clicked my quicklaunch WA5 icon. Then I clicked the Agent icon (thought it was Winamp already) to bring the wa's window to the front. I started the playback, and minimized wa (I have a setting not to show wa neither in the taskbar nor in the tray). Then I tried to use the global hotkeys. Nothing worked. Then I clicked the agent icon and winamp window appeared not playing anything. I was frightened . Then in task manager i saw there were two instances of winamp, though I'm sure that multiple instances option was off. (and when i clicked the quicklaunch icon two times only one instance of wa was loaded).


Perhaps, the agent should list the winamp windows?


Winamp 5.01 (clean install)
System specs: Cel2Ghz, 256ram, gygabyte 8pe800
OS: WindowsXP SP1 + Russian MUI
Video Card: gf mx400
Sound Card: doesn't really matter here
DirectX version: 9

I can confirm the bug lektroluv and Exor reported up there. I have my WinAMP scaled to 78% and the bug occurs. it doenst happen at 80% though. I signed up to report this bug but it's already been reported and is very very annoying.
It'd be great if this could be fixed in the next release!!

I don't know if this has been reported or not, so sorry if it has been.

For some reason, Winamp spawns a 'ghost' window using the Classic skin (I'm using the Modern skin) when it starts up.



I have the Main Winamp window at the top right of my screen though - this strange one is appearing at the oppsite side.

I'm running the following plugins:

gen_displaychange.dll (disabled)
gen_mikroamp5.dll (disabled)
gen_nxsballoon.dll (disabled)
gen_one_click.dll
gen_tray.dll
mousevu.dll (disabled)
vis-tx3.dll
vis_deskband.dll
vis_keyb.dll

It goes away when I show then hide the main Winamp window

most strange

You "didn't have to before"? What do you mean?
That's always been the way to get gapless cd playback in Winamp.

If you meant anything else, then that would be an unimplemented feature, not a bug.

Gapless cd playback requires Digital Audio Extraction to be enabled, and some value adding to the Buffer Ahead on Track Change slider.

Buffer Ahead on Track Change does NOT affect seeking. Only the main Buffer length affects seeking, and there is no need to adjust this.

Or did you mean that these two settings should be applied with the default Winamp installation, so you don't personally have to adjust them yourself?
In which case, post in the Wishlist instead.
Although, I've already suggested it to the devs a fair few months ago. ..

If I double-click on the glitch, it switches to what looks like classic windowshade mode. If I right click on it, it brings up the context menu. If I click on the system tray icon again, the winamp window comes up like normal. This only happens when I minimize Winamp from the window button. Uninstalling one-click doesn't help, and in fact makes it so I can't retrieve the window and have to close Winamp.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]

Cannot reproduce.

Please test with clean install of v5.01 and no 3rd-party plugins.

Invalid Bug Report.

[/Edit]
I experience this issue as well, clean install, no 3rd party plugins, using the default modern skin. Double clicking on the minimize button creates a classic skin fragment which behaves as described above. I am, however, unable to get Winamp to function properly unless I shut it down and start it up again at this point. I can get the Main Window and Playlist Editor to come back by unchecking and rechecking them via the right-click menu, but if I do so I am unable to minimize the main window any more without a Winamp restart.

Windows XP
Winamp 5.01
Pentium4 2.4GHz
SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio
nVidia GeForce4 MMX
256 MB RAM


[Edit --> DJ Egg]

Yup, we've reproduced this bug before.
Note, although the outcome may be similar/the same, it's actually different to the bug report you quoted.

Yes, if Winamp is set to display in the Systray only, with modern skin active, then double-clicking the minimize button will cause the classic main window artifact to appear.

First of all, there's no actual need to double-click the minimize button, where a single-click is all that is required... so not many people will ever actually witness this bug.

To get out of it, right click the systray icon, select:
Options -> Preferences
Then, in the General Preferences page,
checkmark "Taskbar" (Show Winamp in).
Single left clicking the taskbar icon will restore Winamp
and the artifact will disappear.

However, yes, this is still a bug,
and one which needs looking into further.
Though, apparently, it's proving to be a tough nut to crack.

Also note that it's referenced in the Known Bugs thread, in the "forced bugs" section.

Mute when closed, volume=0% when opened

Mine seems to be a simple bug:

If you click the mute button in Winamp 5.0 or 5.01 and leave it depressed when you close Winamp, when Winamp is opened again, the volume will be at 0%, and the mute button will not be depressed—thus, you won't be able to click the mute button again to return to your previous volume setting.

This is similar to a feature request except for the following points:
  • Where the first session is muted, when you close, then reopen Winamp, the second session is at 0% volume and cannot be undone easily using the same method (the mute button).
  • If you execute a media file associated to play in Winamp, it will begin at 0% volume, which seems counter-intuitive.
I have found this to occur under the following two unique sets of circumstances:
  • Winamp 5.0 and 5.01, clean installs
  • Windows 98 SE and Windows XP Pro SP1
Here are the specs for both my machines, which this bug occurs on:

My WinXP Pro SP1 machine:
  • Winamp 5.01, clean install
  • Dell Latitude CSx, PIII, 500MHz, 384MB RAM
  • Video: NeoMagic MagicGraph256ZX driver 5.1.2001.0
  • Sound: NeoMagic MagicMedia 256 + AC97 Driver (WDM) 5.2.3633.0
  • DirectX 9.0b
My Win98SE machine:
  • Winamp 5.01, clean install
  • Compaq Presario 5835, Celeron, 500MHz, 256MB RAM
  • Video: Intel 810 Chipset Graphics Driver (DC100) 4.0
  • Sound: ESS SOLO-1 PCI AudioDrive 4.05.00.1116
  • DirectX 9.0b



Dazog Confirmed. How could we have missed it

Media Library playlists: Position changes don't affect play

Another bug, same specs as above:

While playing a Media Library (ML) playlist, if you change the position or delete a track (latter previously reported), Winamp will continue to play the ML playlist as it was composed at the time it began playing. Thus, it is not dynamically updated—it just reads an ML playlist once and does not accept changes during play.

However, the standalone Playlist window works as with previous Winamp versions and is dynamically updated during playlist play.

VBR not displayed correctly.

I know I'm weird...but all my mp3s are ripped in vbr. For some weird reason this causes them all to display the incorrect length for the song. This never happened in winamp 2.7 or so, and it did happen in 2.9x, but when you played the song, it fixed the time...but in 5.01...my 24 minute song is stuck displaying a time of 99 minutes...grr.
I'm running winxp sp1
A 1.2 GhZ Celery with 512 megs of sdram
Intel 82801 chipset vid/sound
DX 9.0b
This is slightly annoying...I mean...when I play a song the time displays more or less correctly, although it often skips around
*shrug* perhaps that is just the nature of vbr and I should deal with it?

What software and encoder did you use?

There should be no problems like this with vbr encoded mp3's, or at least I don't have any (using any of CDex, EAC, or WA5 with LameEnc).

This type of problem usually occurs if the vbr/xing headers are missing/faulty.

Try using vbrfix to see if it can fix the headers.

Problem Part Two (2) [failure to recognize gracenote CDDB plug-ins]

On startup Winamp's Nullsoft CD/LineIn plug-in (CDDB2) v3.0 in configured to use the gracenote CDDB service
dll.

When I do insert a CD it will (even when connected) pause and then state that CDDB components are not installed and that I should download a Standard or Full version to use said CDDB ID service. And also the CD/LineIn plug-in says CDDB components are not installed.

Yet when I explore C:\winamp\plugins\, I do see CDDBUIWinamp.dll & CDDBControlWinamp.dll

This process happens with any Audio CD and even when I restarted/re-installed Winamp.

When going windowshade -> full mode of a window (especially the playlist) the window flickers, if you slow this down it's actually changing back to a different coloured skin (using the Modern skin) before flicking back to the colour theme i've selected.

Assertion failed

700Mhz Athlon
512 MB memory
Lots of HD, but not much free space on C: now that I look.
Win 2000 Pro

Winamp 5.01 is installed on D:

I've just had:
Assertion failed
Expression: hrgn != NULL
File: c:\dev\Studio\bfc\platform\Win32\win32_region.cpp
Line: 654

Probably unrelated... I've been playing the same 3 songs for 24 hours or so. (Yes, I'm starting to get tired of them - but Goddamn right it's a beautiful day.)

When I check hard drive, C: was down to 16MB only. So it's probably down to a failed memory allocation. Though allocation >16MB blocks is a bit over the top if you ask me.

No other problems at the same time - all is running without problems - only Winamp reports a problem.

Best wishes,

Use FreeType internal TTF rendering -> 100% CPU

I apologize if this is a dupe; I couldn't find any posts like it.

Checking the "Use FreeType internal TTF rendering" checkbox in Preferences/Skins/Modern Skins/Font Rendering causes Winamp 5.01 for x86 to try to use 100% CPU (and it will slow down my system if I don't tell it to run low priority in the preferences or reduce the priority of the process in the Task Manager.) This behavior remains the same even if gen_ff.dll is the only file in the Plugins/ directory (yes, with Winamp restart), so I don't think it's a cross problem with other plugins. Behavior remains the same with any combination of active checkboxes under "Use FreeType internal TTF rendering". Behavior goes away when switching to Winamp Classic Skin, or with the Modern Skin with a fresh install of Winamp. To be honest, I don't have the patience to go through all the (dozens? hundreds? of) settings I tweak in Winamp to find the one that is somehow interacting with FreeType and making it go apeshit, so I don't expect much in the way of a fix suggestion; I'll just live with slightly uglier non-AA text ;).

Catalyst 3.9 (2D Version 6.14.10.6396), 1st-gen Radeon 9700 Pro 128MB, XP Pro w/SP1 (5.1 Build 2600) (ClearType on), DX 9.0b (4.09.0000.0902), SB Audigy 1, AMD 2400+, 512MB, KT400-8235.


[Edit --> DJ Egg]

"Use FreeType internal TTF rendering" is checkmarked by default.
I strongly suggest you post in Tech Support instead,
because unless you show us how, no-one on the team can reproduce this.

Sometimes while i am playing a video file in winamp, my system reboots without warning.

My specs:
Winamp 5.01 clean install
Chaintech 7NJL4 mobo
Athlon XP 2700+ CPU
768MB RAM
Windows XP Pro SP1
GeForce FX 5200 w/ 53.03 driver pack
SB Audigy 2 w/ EAX 4.0 drivers
DirectX 9.0b

When this happens, there is no error message or bluescreen; the system just reboots immediately. This problem has occured with all video fomats i've used, including .avi DivX .avi Xvid, .ogm Xvid, and MPEG, and has never happened with audio files. It happens at random times in playback and happens often but not every time i play a video.

thanks in advance

Seems i posted a new thread when I needed to post here.

Winamp 5.01 (Dec 19) when using modern skin won't let you use keyboard shortcuts to change tracks, start/pause or stop. I'm using a Microsoft Natural Multimedia keyboard.

Always on Top

Athlon 2100 XP
512 2700
Asus A7N8X Deluxe rev. 2
Chaintech 5600 Ultra 128 mb Drivers 53.03
OnBoard Soundstorm version 3.13
WD 120 mb HDD 8 MB Cache
Lite on 52x CdBurner
Lite On DVD
Windows Home SP1 (Current with update)
DirectX 9.0b


I noticed when installing the 5.01 version on my rig, I select the Always on Top option and it is intermittently functional. It remains selected in the options yet does not stay on top when multiple windows are opened. When this happens, i go back into options and unselect it and re select it again and it is completely functional again.


Other than that, so far Winamp 5 has run just great for me. All my 2.x version viz that I use run just as they did before (Monkey, Milkdrop, Tripex3). I read these forums and wonder why people have all of these troubles and I have only one snag so far. I am not one of those people gets upset over winamp loading in 5 secs rather than 2 secs. From my perspective, good job Nullsoft. Keep up the good work.

For some reason, when using modern skins, I get a half-working copy of the old classic main window in certain situations. This only happens when winamp is set to show in the taskbar. I can click on the icon in the taskbar or alt+tab to it and a copy of the classic main window will appear stuck about halfway through the bottom of the screen, more-or-less horizonatally centered. I can't move it and if I click the windowshade button the window remains the same except the titlebar has become the windowshade image. All the buttons still react when clicked. Also, if I click the close button, it reappears closer to the center of the screen, the visualisation changes to thick lined bar and the title starts scrolling (vis was off and title was stationery before). Clicking the close button again causes the window to disappear until I click its icon in the taskbar (or alt+tab to it) again.

Minimising the window causes all of winamp to minimise. Deselecting "main window" from the menu causes the modern main menu to disappear but doesn't affect the classic window.

The kicker is, of course, that I use litestep rather than explorer. At least, I used to. Recently I switched to geOshell and the same bug still occurs. Turninf on "Litestep VWM compatible mode" doesn't change anything. The only thing that seems to fix this is turning off "show winamp in taskbar". The odd thing is that the second I enable it again, the classic window pops up.

Yeah, I know that not using litestep/geoshell/alt+tab would probably fix this, but that isn't much of a solution... I'm relatively happy with just keeping it in the systray for now, but I'm trying to preserve the space in my already crowded systray, and to be honest I just prefer it in the taskbar.

Any ideas?

When Shuffle is enabled, Ctrl+Next (End of List) goes to the end of the shuffle table, not the playlist. Winamp then simply stops at the end of the song, not letting you press Next. Same for Ctrl+Previous.

When querying CDDB, or entering CDDB data, if I click on the Media Library (Winamp Modern), the contents of the window are draggable outside the view area just by clicking. You don't even have to move your cursor, the library snaps down and to the right. Also appears in MMD3. The only way to fix it is to hide and show the Media Library.

Winamp 3 used to work in this situation (on the same machine).
I should have mentioned that the MP3 files being played are on a network share.
I tried it with Standby mode instead of hibernate, but that only resulted in an empty database!!
I will change this machine soon to a newer one (ASUS A7V, Thunderbird 800) and will report back then.

Not a bug, but a hard-coded feature.

Winamp 5.01 (install w/o uninstalling 2.91)
KT400A, AMD 2600+, 512MB
XPsp1
GF4 FX5200
Integrated AC97 Audio
DX 9.0b

I've always used just the main Winamp window & playlist editor, and keep them minimized at the center of my monitor. With previous versions I could simply give focus to the playlist editor & use my mouse wheel to scroll forward (down) & back (up) between songs. Now when I do that, the main Winamp window seems to get focus and I end up adjusting the volume instead.

It seems there's no way to tell now which window has focus so I hope this isn't "by design" & that you will be able to fix it back to its old behavior in a future release.

Thanks

System:
Pentium 4 3.2
512 DDR
MSI neo2 Mainbord
directx 9.0b
geforce 3 ti 200

Strange problem:
when I start winamp it plays the mp3 files in my playlist corectly. But after a few minutes or even an half hour it does not play anything. If I choose a file from the playlist winamp just shows 0.00 mins.
it does not start playing the mp3 file. When I reboot my computer it works.
I thought it could have something in common with the windows media player, because after I started the wmp the problem with winamp started.
Winamp 2.91c works without problems.
I do not know where the problem is but it is very strange please help me.

Thanks

I get the same thing without using windowshade mode... Could it have something to do with "xmouse" in TweakUI?

I've noticed twice now a little window hiding below the start menu, that looks like Winamp 2.x. Dunno why it becomes visible (assuming it's always there?) but it's happening. This didn't happen in 2.x or 3.x.

Winamp 5.01 (clean install)
DFI Lanparty NF-II Ultra
Athlon XP 3000+ 400MHz FSB
1GiB DDR400
Windows XP SP1 fully updated.
nVidia GeForce 4 Ti4600
Creative Audigy
DirectX 9

[Edit --> Sawg]

Sounds like a third-party plug-in. Keyboard plug-in maybe?
