As I've mentioned before for 5.22, that delay of double clicking bookmarked streams from the Media Library to play in the playlist that never existed in 5.21 (and earlier) still exists.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Can't reproduce this. There's no delay here.

That's what you said last time too, but I know for sure it's Winamp, and whenever I go back to 5.21 or earlier it's fine. The bug started with 5.22. I mean, it's not a major issue, but it's enough for me to stick with 5.21. When I know that something can work fine and then it doesn't, it doesn't really wanna make me stick with that version.. But anyway hopefully someone can reproduce this as well cos otherwise I'll look like a liar lol.. Nah, I dunno why it's doing it, but yeah... Cheers anyway.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Can you provide an exact step-by-step method of reproduction, and some example stream urls's? Also confirm a clean install of 5.23 with no 3rd-party plugins, and include Windows OS in reply (see first post for details on how to write a valid (reproducable?) bug report).

All mp3's? Or just the odd one? Are they all quite long (eg. over 100 mins)? Are they cbr or vbr? If the latter, have you tried using vbrfix? As it stands, we can't reproduce this...

Wasn't sure which topic to post this bug, as it relates to the plugin folder even though it's not technically a plugin problem.

In the library dragging files from "Local Media" to a playlist replaces the files that were already in the playlist in stead of adding them.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Gah! Reproduced. Thanks

playlist is media library become empty!

I've lost some playlists I was bulding for the last 3 months when using 5.23 yesterday for the first time. Probably stupid of myself but i did not save to file my playlist before testing the new version...

At install my playlist were still there. But then, when draging songs from the media library to a playlist (in the media library) some playlists (in the media library) are emptied.

Scenario, In the media library:

-create playlist PLA
-drag a song from media lib to PLA
-then create PLB
-drag a song from media lib to PLA
-then create PLC
-drag a song from media lib to PLA
-then display PLA: it's empty...sh*t

thanks & regards

A.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Yup, alas, this is a known 5.23-specific bug. Sorry. Should be fixed shortly.

[Edit #2]
This is now fixed in Winamp 5.2.3.672 (silent update)

Not all mp3's !!
They are encoded VBR with LAME 3.96 !
Some are +100mins but even those with like 50mins gives problems!
I used vbrfix, but still same (wrong) lenght is shown!

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Hmm... strange. Were the files stored in the Media Library local database? If so, you'll probably need to remove them then reimport them again (after using vbrfix). Other than that, I guess we'll somehow need a (zipped) sample file to be able to reproduce this...

Winamp doesn't play wmv files encoded with Screen codec.
And what is even worest, when you try to play such file,winamp hangs completly. I attached an example file, which is playable with Windows Media Player (9 and above) without problems.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Reproduced. But note that this is a video-content only (ie. no audio) bug/issue with the Windows Media Decoder plugin (in_wm.dll) - the file plays ok if you associate in_dshow with WMV instead of in_wm (c/o Prefs > Plugins > Input > in_dshow > config > add WMV to Ext List).

Win XP SP2. P4 3Ghz. 1024meg RAM. DirectX 9.0c.

Clean install of 5.23 (same with 5.22) with no added plugins.

In the Bookmarks section of the Winamp Library I have several various urls of shoutcast streams (mostly mp3, but also aac+ etc.).

Sometimes I like to flick through them, in the same kinda way you flick through your channels when watching tv 'til you find something you like.

As I said with Winamp 5.21 and older versions, this delay bug never existed, it was instant; the moment I double-clicked a url it would instantly be added to the playlist and begin to buffer. With these newer versions, there is a delay before it is added to the playlist.

As I said I know it's no major bug, but a hassle nonetheless, seeing as if anything Winamp should be getting better with each update and not worse/slower. Yes I'm being a little picky, but if the programmers are unaware of this it may also help them somewhere down the track if ever it happens with another section of Winamp (and also I'm hoping they can fix this current bug).
Cheers.

ml_playlists.dll still has a bug

I tried 5.22, ml_playlists.dll had several serious bugs, then downloaded the update, which still was problematic. Now with 5.23 installed previous issues were resolved & then I downloaded the update for 5.23 ml_playlists, now this too has a different bug. (Whats goin on? All bugs are different from others. Solving some, creating some, heh, don't mind!)

Try to reproduce it this way:
Create a ML playlist having Ogg files (doesnt happen with mp3)
Then right-click any of these files in the ML playlist view, View File Info..., info shown but when you close the info box, the track length becomes "0:00".

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Reproduced. Thanks. Note, it also happens with mp4/m4a (but not mp3/aac, wma). Haven't confirmed if this is 5.2.3.672 specific yet, but I think you'll agree that it's pretty minor compared to all the other previous/fixed ml_playlist bugs, heh.

Yes I agree, but the Dev team should be careful not to 'create' bugs (not even minor) in the process as good programming.

Pls note that the above bug I've mentioned is also seen with mp3 files once you click on update in the Info/Tag Box to close it. Probably should be fixed in the next release I suppose.

I can confirm this. The delay is up to 30 seconds: Clean install of 5.22, 5.23, bookmarked SHOUTcast-streams.

I can't reproduce it, but it happens regularly.

Updated from 5.22 to 5.23 - now the sliders of my favourite skin (iPlay) are green.

tried reinstalling the skin, no effect.

i don't have this problem with the other skins - i attached a screenshot of the ML-Window, playlist looks the same

Has anybody an idea what could cause this problem?

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Please read known bugs/issues thread first.
Note, it's not actually a bug, but you can find a temp workaround fix via the link until the 3rd-party skin author fixes said skin.

Oh - thanx a lot - didn't find anything with the forum search, sorry.

Hi.
I installed winamp 5.23 and I noticed that spectrum analyzer didn't work in modern or either in classic skin when using .midi files.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
This means that you haven't configured in_midi correctly.
Prefs > Plugins > Input > in_midi > config > sampling tab:
Checkmark: Sampling enabled (might also require you to change Device in Device tab first, eg. to one which matches your soundcard midiOut or DirectMusic device).

I can confirm this bug, happens in 5.22 and 5.23. Had to go back to 5.2 (did not have any other version at hand...)

Steps to reproduce:
- play any MP3 from hd or an online stream
- go to bookmarks (either from the right-click-menu or the media library and try to play or to enqueue a bookmarked stream)
-> Winamp freezes BUT the current MP3/Stream keeps playing!

- however, starting to play the stream from the current playlist works fine
- this behaviour also occurs, when - right after starting up winamp - no MP3/stream is played and a stream bookmark is chosen
- streams to test with
SMOOTHJAZZ.COM: http://64.236.34.4:80/stream/1005
Hessischer Rundfunk: mms://ms.mdcs.dtag.de/encoder.toi.hr3_p_live

Another remark: From 5.22 on the handling of Windows Media streams is terribly lagging. That is, starting to play a stream, stopping it, switching streams and closing Winamp freezes the whole programm for a few seconds until the command is executed.

Oh, and this holds also true for accessing any online contents from within the media library. Until some data is loaded, Winamp does not respond.

Please look into this issue again. Since I usually listen to online radio and like to switch channels a lot, this is a real no-go here!

Silent install

It seems that the Silent install is not working.
The triggers, eg. the desktop icons shows no matter if I put the trigger in or not.
Furthermore the the "Registration - Later/Send" dialog shows in the silent install

I also have the problem that Winamp freezes for some seconds on enqueueing shoutcast bookmarks.

I have a bookmark list with about 20 stations, and when double clicking the "Bookmarks" icon in the ML in order to enqueue and play them all, Winamp freezes for 20 seconds or so.

This was NOT true in Versions < 5.21 I think!!

Winamp freeze on WMA Pause and Seek scenario...

i don't know if anyone is aware of this but when WMA file is played and being paused..attempting to seek will make your Winamp freeze...

there are lots of problems regarding WMA files being seeked while playback...
thanks...

Specs:

Winamp 5.23 (a very clean install)
Pentium MMX
Windows XP SP2
256MB RAM

No additional plugin installed
uses the WaveOut and Directsound during the freeze event...
using Classic Skin...

it only freezes then when you attempt to close, the "End Now" or "Cancel" is the only option...

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Reproduced. Thanks.

ML Playlist Enqueue bug

This one I found in 5.23 quite late but I don't think its to do anything with 5.24.
Try to reproduce this way:
Create a new ML playlist with a few tracks. Also enqueue a few other tracks in the Playlist Editor (can also be playing a track)
In the left of ML Window where the playlist is displayed under 'Playlists' header, click on this playlist, then 'Shift+Enter' for enqueue. The playlist simply replaces the enqueued list in the editor & starts playing 1st track. It behaves like 'Play' function instead of 'Enqueue'. But rt-click->Enqueue still works.
Seems to be a minor bug! probably should be rectified in next release.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Known and already fixed for 5.25

Main Windows disappears after closing Preferences..

Bug Details:

on Classic Skin mode, when closing the Preferences, Winamp freezes (as it used to be) during the freeze, minimizing Winamp (clicking Winamp in the taskbar) results in the Main Window disappears.

I made a clean install of 5.24 and it crashed on the register/send statistics window.

when i double-click or right-click and play files my taskbar and quicklaunch-bar loose their stay on top-feature. I have the taskbar on the bottom of the screen and another bar with the quicklaunch on the top, both with autohide and always stay on top. can't always reproduce this one though, but it happened a few times.

This has been mentioned before. Are you getting confused by the wording perhaps, it's a bit mixed up since the last changes.

Reset to default values = Buffering tab reset to entry values.
Reset All = All values in all tabs reset to default values. In effect these become the new entry values, hence the behaviour you see.

Small bug in installer

Installer for Winamp Full 5.21 - 5.24 has small (silly) bug with types (presets) of installations.
There are 4 types: Full, Standard, Lite, Minimal (5 - Custom). But when choosing Minimal the installer checking all components as Full. In my opinion Minimal must uncheck all components (except Winamp (required) )

Sorry if this bug was already posted, but I found nothing.

CBR MP3 accurate seeking problem

Recent versions of Winamp including 5.24 seem not to report timecodes after seeks as accurately in CBR MP3 files as older versions. An older version that I have handy and know does work correctly is 5.13 but it is possible that later versions do too.

The timecodes reported by Winamp after a seek always seem to be late (i.e. the time code reported by Winamp is higher than it should be). The innacuracy varies from around three seconds at the three minute mark to around seven seconds at thirty minutes. If play the file through from the beginning then the timecodes appear to be correct.

I use Winamp for identifying the points to edit MP3 files at so it's important to me that timecode reporting is accurate. I'd used it successfully for years until earlier this year. I've downgraded to 5.13 for the time being.

The tool that does the cutting always walks the frames from the beginning so I believe that it is correct - Winamp 5.13 agrees with it too.

I've seen the problem on two different machines with completely different specifications so I don't think it is platform dependent. Both were running Windows XP SP2.

I've searched around the forums and can't find anything recent that mentions this problem.

"Remove duplicate entries" bug in Playlist Editor

I think this bug has been around for quite some time since 5.2x .. to reproduce:

1. Clear playlist
2. Add songs in the following order:

Song A
Song B
Song A
Song A
Song C
Song D

3. Now press Shift-Delete (or use the button Rem > Remove .. > Remove duplicate entries)
4. The result would look like this:

Song A
Song B
Song D

5. Song C disappeared from the playlist!
6. If you add more "Song A" in the middle, bigger number of unique songs following that duplicate set will disappear after the operation
- with 3 consecutive Song A, 3 following songs disappear
- with 4, 6 following songs disappear
- with 5, 10 disappear (see the pattern here?)

As asked, here are my specs:

Winamp 5.24
WinXP Home SP2
Plugins: installation default + MSN status + Winamp alarm (I don't think the additional plugins are at fault here)

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Reproduced.
Note, this feature is actually added by the JTFE plugin (gen_jumpex.dll).

playlist editor menu button bugs...

[Note:...i was suppose to post this but due to the last post...i would like to support that bug issue]

can anyone confirm this if this is a bug...

the Playlist Editor buttons [Add, Sub, Sel, Misc], some of it has strange behaviours and it doesn't perform its designated function.

[SUB > MISC > Remove Missing Files]
when selected, adds a duplicate entry (of the highlighted entry) in the playlist instead of removing missing files in the playlist

[SUB > MISC > Remove Duplicate Entries]
when selected, changes the last entry in the playlist with the one highlighted entry

[MISC (any command)]
when any command is selected it performs the command, but adds a duplicate entry (of the highlighted entry) in the playlist

Details:

using the classic skin...

@freelancerage:
Sounds like a bug in an earlier version of the drag 'n drop plugin by Joonas. Please confirm a clean install with no third-party plugins.

Good Winamp plugins by Joonas, DrO and shaneh.
If you're bored go here or, if the boredom is more serious, here.

Former winamp fan relinquishes the once-excellent software for reliable RealPlayer

I've been using winamp since . . . . the dawn of time, it seems, on myirad computers, mostly for online broadcasts and playing music files -- nothing fancy, just click and play, click and play, with little or no problems since winamp arose on the dawn of my savanah, yet for the past few days since downloading 5.24, I've been ever viklempt to find a way of doing either: opening a file or listening to an online broadcast via winamp. In the past I could either right- or left-click in the upper left corner, though with 5.24, left-clicking no longer works to get to the URL or file selction option, and right-clicking brings up a display-only listing of what could or should be accessible menu options yet are not functional. Demo mode?

I've point-n-clicked all over the winamp face to find some alternative point from which to do this simple and ever necessary function of opening a file or URL, though have found no alternative point of entry for opening either, a devolutionary regression in *human factors.

Several days ago I kept getting messages every time I opened winamp 5.23 that seemed to imply an urgency in upgrading to 5.24, not just a mention but an emphatic "must do now" sort of message, so I did, anticipating the urgency had to do with a design flaw or security flaw. Trusting the folks at winamp that this was as urgent as it seemed, I replaced my 5.23 with 5.24, anticipating a better and safer listening experience thanks to the maharishis at winamp.

A couple weeks earlier I had freed up more space on der hard drive by erasing all but the then current 5.23 installation files, going way back to versions 4.**. Now I wish so much that I had not erased any of them, for I do miss my winamp player, now uninstalled into the graveyard of cyberspace.

Was the seeming urgency to upgrade to 5.24 really a necessity, or some ploy to increase sales for winamp?

After hours and hours over several days of attempting to get something, anything to play through using an unaccessible menu, I uninstalled and reinstalled winamp 3 more times, yet to no avail. I had resorted to as much as collecting, copying and pasting the audio URLs I listend to often into an email to myself which I would click to get through to the stations I listen to every day and week for many years, previously by using winamp. Today I am using, with much reluctance, Real Player for all my listening pleasure. Although Windoze player sounds much better, it demands far more RAM resources than Real Player.

So, I entreat you to bring back the user menu, not just the facsimile of a nonfunctional display, but an actual menu readily accessible with no mystery venues for getting to it and using it promptly.

*"Human factors", in industrial-consumer relations, have to do with the operational conjugation between objects and the human users they were intended to serve.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
We cannot reproduce this. Please post in Tech Support instead,
and be sure to read this first.
Note, the only difference between 5.23 and 5.24 was a new in_midi.dll

When i close winamp it takes lot of CPU usage it reaches 100%, the McAfee Onaccess scanner module mcshiled.exe scans it very aggresively. That is why it takes lot of CPU and therefore i can't do anything in between that. i m using powerful computer so there is no question of low end system problem.........

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Hmm, strange. Winamp has to write to a few config files (winamp.ini, studio.xnf, winamp.m3u, etc) and the library database on exit. Maybe add the Winamp dir to the AV's realtime scan exclusion list? That's also assuming that this was a clean install of Winamp 5.24 with no 3rd-party plugins?
