i think that's just a bad skin error. the author apparantly didn't account for that. mmd3 is like that (horiz. windowshade mode anyway).

Re: the disk writer plugin.

I tired to burn a CD today using mp3’s converted into wav files and I ended up with three coasters which pissed me off a little.

Only when I cut winamp out from the equation did I get the CD burned properly

I have not had this problem before installing winamp5.

Thanks

If I use the modern skin, as soon as I open the playlist window, bang, it crashes.

Specifically, it's crashing in gen_ff.dll!winampGetGeneralPurposePlugin() (+0x7854, FWIW, I assume someone with debug symbols and source code can turn that into something useful). It's a clean install; no non-standard plugins or skins.

If I skip past the offending instruction (so that it no longer tries to read the bad pointer) then it seem to work tolerably well.

The internationalization is not best.
When an advanced title formatting is on, cyrrilic characters are wrong.
I think, that there is a bug with encodings. Cyrrilic letters are usually written in cp1251 encoding, not utf-8.

Well, I got to add something. This stuckin' in the background only happens when I open Winamp with the media buttons of my Logitech keyboard. So I think it's not necessarily a bug of Winamp 5.

Alright, my problem with adding files from the library seems to be a problem with the MMD3 skin! While using the "Winamp Modern2 skin, the problem never appears!

When using a modern skin (Both Winamp Modern and another modern skin I'm not at liberty to discuss) with another window (Internet Explorer) on top, Winamp seems to make the screen flash quickly whenever the track changes. Beta 1 (10/13) on WinXP Pro with ATI Mobility Radeon 7500C. Also happened on Win2000 Pro with NVIDIA GeForce2 MX.

dropdown lists (as in the wasabi objects) dont loom right, though function fine. most of the time, when you click to drop down the list, it is blank (though if you click one of the blank spaces, you are still selecting the invisable item)

good example:

When leaving winamp open in the background and playing a half-life mod(The Specialists, today..) for a long time(I think it doesn't start happening till about an hour or so in), sound starts crackling like mad. This does not happen with winamp 2.91.

Skin related bug:
Old winamp3 default skin:

1) when playing a VBR file, sometimes (you have to wait for it, maybe drag the window around) the text behind the vales (kbps stereo 44.0KHZ) begins to shake (slight right/left movement). The changing bitrate seems to be very (too?) fast.

2) when highliting the currently playing song in the playlist, you can't see anything because the highlighting bar and the text have nearly the same colour.

eeeee eeeeeee eeeee eeeee eeeee

Okay, now the modern skins seem to be broken in b1. Here's my original report...

1. If there is a playlist loaded in WA5 with the Modern skin, the program is closed, and then is later launched again, occasionally the area in the playlist that show the information will be all black, and the names will not be shown. Fix for now is just to close then re-open the Playlist, or load naother skin, but I'm wondering if it can be fixed.

2. With any classic skin, at random times when the program is launched, most of the main window will be cut off. Only the upper-left corner of the main window (and only the Main Window, nothing else) will still be there. Completely closing WA5 is the only work-around for now. I encountered this same bug with classic skins in WA3.
Today, I started Winamp5 again. It loaded the default Modern skin, but I had my first problem (playlist being blacked out) in addition to the Main Window being gone. I pressed F5 to refresh it, but afterwards, I noticed broken part of the Classic skin at the bottom of my desktop. I change to a Classic skin, and figured out that the refresh caused my second problem (Classic Main Window is cutoff except for top left corner). Switching back to a Modern skin didn't work - the first problem happened again, and refreshing again just caused the second problem to happen as well. Only way I could fix it was uninstall all the Modern skins (including the default Modern skin). Seems there's still some bugs in the program's modern skin implementation that also breaks the classic skins.

EDIT: Another person, Zulithe, ran into this same bug (but he posted it in the WA5 thread in Winamp 2 General Discussion). Fix is actually to delete Winamp.ini. Whoops.

This is an interesting one. Accidentally stumbled across it when trying what GURT reported.

Winamp set to show in systray only

On the classic skin, open the equalizer+playlist+main window.
Dock them all together.
Minimize winamp.
Right click on the tray icon, uncheck the equalizer and playlist.
Single/Double click the icon to restore winamp.

Winamp keeps both the playlist and equalizer open, but refuses to let them dock to eachother (they can only dock to the main window). Its like winamp isn't killing the windows just the links between them. Fixed by right clicking and checking the eq/pl options again.

Enqueue doesn't work.

Enqueue doesn't work, I bookmark a song, press the enqueue button. Doesn't play song next.

Set in the options "Double-click makes song enqueue" (or whatever). Double click a song, it plays it.

Ogg Vorbis Title Display Formatting Bug

I've posted a description of a couple of issues I was having in the Winamp 5 Beta Discussion thread, before I was sure I had found any bugs. Well, DJ Egg was kind enough to provide a solution to one of my two issues: no international character support with "Advanced Title Formatting" turned on, so that's fixed now. The other issue I had was that title formatting in the Vorbis input component was not being saved when Winamp was closed and re-started. I had thought I had gotten past it because on the first try it did save my custom title string. But no joy for changing it again...it seems you can change it once after installation of Winamp 5 beta, but not again.

>>>
Platform Info...
PC: Sony VAIO PCG-GRX670 (P4m 2.0GHz, 512MB)
Audio Hardware: Echo Indigo
Operating System: Windows XP Home (sp1)
Audio Encoding Format, Settings: Ogg Vorbis 1.01, -q 5

Problem Description: Winamp 5 beta not saving changes made to Nullsoft Vorbis Decoder v1.35 title display format after exiting Winamp.

Current Workaround: Run regedit. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Software - Winamp - in_vorbis. Set the value of "format" to the desired title display formatting string. For reference, mine is:
[%artist% ~ ][%album% '('%date%')' ~ ]$if2(%title%,%filename%)
After doing this, Winamp will start with the correct title formatting for Vorbis files in the playlist window and title display. It can be changed any number of times in the registry, and will load correctly each time in Winamp.

2-3 More bugs

On Modern Skin: The main window disappeared. Permanently. I clicked on show/hide main window multiple times. Is this = windowshade bug?

Library: Tried to delete and re-add files. Entries wouldn't delete (error message pops up) and when adding, program crashes.

Uh... I THINK that's about it.

I tend to run with the oscilliscope running. When playing CDs, it seems that the buffer for the scope data gets out of sync with the music. I was listening to some rather sparse bass heavy music with obvious separate hi frequency patterns popping up from time to time. By the end of a 5 or 6 minute song, the scope was nowhere near the actual sound. As a possible side effect, the scope would often 'search' for the last bit of songs. (unless it was doing this because of a 2 second gap between tracks. This problem didn't seem to be occurring with MP3 files.

I played with the video playback as well, seeing what it would play. I have a few files I have renamed with the Divx extension, since they really aren't AVI files. Winamp would choke on them and display a time _way_ too long when dumping them in the playlist. Some of the files I could rename back to avi, and they would work.

In the modern skin, if I use the scaling option, it wont save upon winamp exit. When i restart the amp, it is back at 100 regardless. Other then that, I love it to death. My favorite part that kept me from moving to Wa3 (even though i know it isnt the same thing) is the Plush Winamp speaker...it has been updated, and I love the new color scheme

Sometimes, Alt+G causes the Classic Winamp EQ to appear, even if skin is Modern and the Modern EQ is already present (see picture).

Another bug, repeated clicking of the "Open Visualization and Video" button causes Winamp to freeze, bringing the whole system with it, forcing reboot. This happened to me 3 times already, a terrible bug

Windowshade mode is fucked up. See MMD3 for the way I would like it.

Point 1. I want to be able to have my windowshade mode and main mode different widths. Of course, it should remember them when switch between.

Point 2. I would like it to function as MMD3 when entering and exiting windowshade mode, as in, it remembers the modes previous positions and will return to them.

Any chance of this happening?

This isnt necessarily a bug, however:

[EDIT]Not isnt necessarily a bug...what the hell kind of grammar is that? I am so tired. Sorry for the 2 posts in a row too.[/EDIT]

Double clicking on the mini-vis in the modern skin should launch the chosen winamp visualization plugin, wa 2.x style. I see no reason for removing this behavior (yes i understand that it wasnt intentionaly removed.)

Edit # 2
--------
Another bug (important: using windowsblinds) is that on any window with a scrollbar (in the modern skin, too lazy to test others unless asked.) when you are scrolling you can see it flickering between the winamp scrollbar and the windowsblinds one. Simply adding winamp.exe to windowsblinds exclude list fixes this.

Winamp 5 beta 1 (October 13), Windows XP Pro SP1.

There are two issues that bother me...

1. When the playlist editor is in "mini" mode (after being double-clicked), it doesn't support multilingual characters in the song title. I'd REALLY like to see that changed. I consider this as a bug because multilingual titles seem to work fine when the playlist is open normally, so it's an inconsistency. It also works fine in the main player window. My native language is not latin-derived, so it has its own alphabet. This has always bothered me.

2. I have this WMV file ("Stacy's Mom.wmv" =\) in which I can't use the seekbar or the pause button at all. Well, I can pause, but I can't resume afterwards. It can only play it right through with no pausing. It's not (entirely) a problem in the file itself, as I can browse it beautifully (and fast) using Windows Media Player. So if WMP can do it, Winamp surely can too. =) Personally, I can live with it, but it's just very annoying and I thought I should post about it. =P

phwoarrr . . . where to begin ?! Backwards methinks . . .

@sock
1) multi-language/unicode support is greatly improved in latest internal build (Prefs -> Modern Skins -> Fonts). However, the way you described it, it does sound like a bug. See if you can still reproduce it if/when beta2 becomes public....
2) I can reproduce the bug with one of my WMV files, but not with the other (yes, I've only got 2 WMV's) . . . however, the first one won't scroll in WMP either, so I guess it must've been made that way.

@badrad
1) Options -> Winamp modern -> main windowshade mode
checkmark "unlink width & position"
2) Option still there with classic skins.
Not (currently) supported by default Modern skin, because all 3rd-party freeform skins were originally built for Winamp3 (there's no double click in default.wal vis area here), so (maybe) there's a working template there which can't be broken . . . or something like that, lol.
3)See my reply to nifti (right at the end of my post).
Your posts weren't here when I first started typing.

@Helkite
All fixed in latest internal build (beta2build5)

@Lord Athlon
Checkmark "locked" at the bottom of the scaling menu.

@Hobie-wan
1. Prefs -> Plugins -> Input -> CD plugin -> config:
Checkmark: enable digital audio extraction
Uncheck: sample input from s/c for vis
(restart winamp for changes to take effect)

2. Not sure, but I take it you've added ;DIVX to the extension list in the DirectShow Decoder config?

@pieman3141
1. Can't reproduce, but I suggest you don't do it again
2. Dirty fix: Close Winamp, delete gen_ml.ini (winamp\plugins dir) & delete the "plugins\ml" folder. Reinstall Winamp, add your music to the library again (note: you will lose any stored playlists, so back them up first to .m3u files c/o
Library -> hi-lite playlist entry in left pane -> "manage library" button -> export)

@ScorLibran
Can't reproduce.
in_vorbis title formatting changes are saved for me when I restart winamp.

Are you sure Winamp is closing properly?
Any 3rd-party plugins installed?
Do other setting changes keep in Prefs?
(can't be winamp.ini related because, as you rightly noted, in_vorbis settings are stored in the registry)

For now, export that regkey to a .reg file
so you don't have to keep opening regedit.
Just double click the .reg file before opening winamp
(or create a BAT file to run reg file first, then winamp).
Obviously, this is just a temporary workaround

@konedima
If you're referring to Winamp3 style enqueue/dequeue (play next) feature, then it hasn't been implemented yet. Read "known bugs" sticky thread -> "not bugs" section.

@crazee
Reproduced!

@NeoChaos
Everything working ok now?

@amano & iPTS
"known bugs" sticky thread -> "not bugs"
Some skins will need updating, sad to say.

@bored154
Same fix for you as pieman3141 above (#2)

@kiilu
Modern skins will always run sluggishly on older/slower systems.
That's why you have the option to use classic skins.
The base skin is still the same as Winamp 2.x
("default" modern skin is a .wal file, whereas classic skin is built-in)
Sorry, but that's just the way that it is.
New software utilizes the new technology that's available.
Post your system specs, and we'll give a more accurate synopsis.

@Araemo
Can't reproduce with any of my mod files. I've got a fair few hours worth...
in_mod.dll is the same as it was in 2.9x

@GURT
Fixed
Equalizer is now uncheckable under those circumstances.

@nifti
Make sure Winamp is in windowsblinds exclude list.
Winamp is already skinned, so it can't be skinned again . . .

Known bug (ie. I've just reported it, thanks) . . . will be fixed

Just to clarify (to help others reproduce it):
Shift+click and Ctrl+Click on Eject button (main window)
should bring up Open Dir & Open Location boxes,
but "Open Files Dialog" appears (as with normal left click).

Right click contexts are there and working
Also works with classic skins (just not modern skins)


btw, I've only just now merged your post from wa5_wishlist with this one (it's now further up this page somewhere), so that's why it may seem to everyone else as though I'm replying to it late . . . which, in all honesty, I am (replying to it late), lol


Note: It will only be fixed in Winamp 5.0, not Winamp3

I have been writing a skin for the better part of 2 years and now that winamp 5 is out I checked to see if it would work on it. The skin had some problems that I fixed and for a while it worked great.

Yesterday I started Winamp 5 and was listening to it for about 2 minutes before an error popped up (I didn't save it, didn't think it would be a problem). Now, the skin will NOT show up. I can open the modern skin included with the build, but my skin will put a checkmark next to its name and display the classic skin.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Winamp 5 and even deleting the registry keys behind it. It still doesn't work. Please Help!

Using:
Windows XP Pro,
Compaq Presario PII 450,
Noname sound and video card,
Winamp 5.0 beta latest build,
All drivers and codecs are updated.

When playing an audio CD there is a slight pause between tracks so if a song spans onto the next track there is a break in the music where there should not be one. Also on audio CD's that have multimedia content between each track the CD spins down and then back up again giving a pause of about a second.

go options-preferences-plugins-input-nullsoft -nullsoft cd/LinIn plug-in-configure-check enable digital audio extraction

2) Option still there with classic skins.
Not supported by default Modern skin, because all 3rd-party freeform skins were originally built for Winamp3, so there's a working template there which can't be broken . . . or something like that, lol.
If you're referring to this:

then I don't see any reason why it should not be implemented..
All it takes is some simple maki coding and tadaa!
No compatibility with Winamp3 is broken.

----end of part 1, beginning of part 2----

Alright, now to my own bugreport.

in the Modern skin, the beat detector overlaps the songticker (not visually) so that when you click and try to drag the songticker, in the area of the beat detector, the only thing that will happen is that the beat detector turns on and off, nothing else..

No biggie, I can solve that one easily myself, but I just though such a small bug shouldn't be there in final version..

Also, doubleclicking the songticker should open up the id3 editor, this is no bug, just a simple thing that should really be there..

edit:
last "bug" removed, I finally found out what they did and it's working fine..

The main window won't display on top of any other Winamp window. Move the eq window over the top of the main window, then click on the main window and it should be brought to the front... but it isn't.

No Plague, that was the reference to vis plugin options in built-in vis area right-click, under modern skins.

badrad made 2 posts covering 4 points
In my reply, 1) referred to his 1+2, 2) to his 3, and 3) to his 4

In other words, it is implemented, but you need to change the options as explained in my reply above.


Re: your bug report
Yeah, double click to the left or right to bring up File Info Box, but not under beat detector vis . . .


@djtaylor
Reproduced with classic skin
Cheers!


@Ian_C
Yes, do as amano says to enable Digital Audio Extraction
(requires winamp restart to take effect)
Note: You might also need to uncheck "sample input from soundcard..."

Then go back into Prefs,
Go to: Output -> DirectSound Output -> config -> Buffering
Increase "buffer ahead on track change" slider until problem is gone.
You might also need to checkmark "remove silence" (Other tab) and adjust "cut-off" value...


@Agnomen
Do all other skins work ok (classic and modern)?
If so, then I'm afraid that it can only be a problem with your skin.
Is it a modern (freeform) or classic skin?
I can't help personally, but we have Skins forums here.

Clarifying my previous bug report

DJ Egg, you seem to have misinterpreted me.. I did not mean to say I was playing a mod file through winamp, but I was multi-tasking by running a version of half-life at the same time. My playlist however, is made up of mods, oggs, mp3s, and now some APE files. I had the same problem(Sound crackling) in the same circumstances with winamp3, which eventually drove me back to winamp2. I also did not have any APE files when I used winamp3 and had the same problem.

[Edit] If you want a simple way to reproduce, just launch half-life, join a server, and sit around observing the action for an hour or two while winamp5 plays in the background. If you have the same hardware/software config, and still can't reproduce it, my system must be borked. [/Edit]

Sorry, NM the last post. It was my own fault. Messed up the compression and the skin wouldn't load right.

Although it was my own fault it did uncover something else. If it cannot load the skin you selected, I think it should put a checkmark next to the classic skin instead of the skin you tried to load. I thought it was messing with my skin instead of loading the default.
