To my knowledge this has not changed and probably never will based on how shitty the released version of WA5 worked. I gave up on WA, WMP seems to handle everything you throw at it WITHOUT CRASHING!!! Best bet is to never ever again use any winamp product, since the 1.x releases this product has gone downhill and continues to do so, I dont think they care about it anymore. Winamp use to be the standard for mp3 players, now it's not worthy of a second thought, not to mention it isnt even free anymore. That in mind I REALLY expect more, but I am sure it will never happen. For the mostpart winamp is on it's way to the gravbe unless something drastic happens.

still not working?!

I am still not able to get winamp to show the information in the ID3v2 tag when streamping mp3-files using the HTTP protocol.

I am using the newest version of winamp (5.31).
I tried looking through all the settings in in_mp3, without success.

Has anyone succeeded getting the information? I want it mainly for plugins like audioscrobbler (for last.fm) and leoslyrics, but they seem to depend on the id3-tags. Is there any way to get around this problem?

As long as you're using the latest in_mp3.dll (v4.02) and no 3rd-party mp3 plugin (in_mp3pro, in_mad, in_mpg123) then ID3v2 tag support works just fine for mp3 file streams.

It also depends on what your Advanced Title Format string is in: Winamp > Prefs > Titles (eg. if it's set to just show filename, then it will also just show filename for streamed mp3's). And of course, the streamed mp3's naturally need to have ID3v2 tags for them to show (ie. ID3v1 / Lyrics3 / APEv2 tags will not show, only ID3v2).

I have no idea about the 3rd-party audioscrobbler and leoslyrics plugins though.

seems to work, partly

You are right, the title is indeed generated from the information in the id3-tag. The "view file info" option only shows information about the stream itself, not the id3 tag, as it does with local files... Is this how it should be?

How is the id3 information usually transmitted to third party plugins? Obviously third party plugins don't get this information as it is now. Should this be fixed in winamp
or in third-party plugins?

As far as I know, it's a 3rd-party plugin thing, and you'll need to contact the author(s) of said plugin(s).

Still no ID3v2 tag

I don't know how you managed DJ Egg, but I can't get the ID3v2 tag to show up. I have the latest WinAmp 5.31 Lite (in_mp3.dll 4.02) with all default settings (incl. Advanced Title Format) and no 3rd party plug-ins - still the URL shows up, not the tag info. All my files have a ID3v2 tag, so that's not the problem. Also, it does show up in Windows Media Player.

That's because you're using/linking to an active server script (aspx) instead of directly to the mp3 files. Try streaming the actual mp3 url and then you'll see the id3v2 tags.

Well, that shouldn't matter. Regardless if WinAmp opens the URL to the file located on a web server or a script that reads the file (from elsewhere) and sends the file data, it's the exact same bit stream that reaches WinAmp.

Somehow, if the URL doesn't have a .mp3 extension, WinAmp ignores to show the tag info. From the previously attached picture it clearly shows that WinAmp does see & read the ID3v2 tag, since it detects that it's 241 bytes, it just ignores to show it. And as I wrote before, if I load the same URL (with the script) in WMP, it works. I'd say this bug/feature isn't fully working yet.

Update:
I put a test file on my web server, and opened the full URL in WinAmp, e.g. http://www.mysite.com/test/file.mp3 and the file plays and the tag shows. Then I set the default document in the web server to be "file.mp3" and load the URL http://www.mysite.com/test/ into WinAmp. The file plays but the the tag doesn't show, only the URL. This although the file is still in the same place on the web server, no script involved. Clearly, WinAmp ignores the tag if the URL doesn't include ".mp3".

Correct. I'll see if there's anything that can be done about it.

Great!
I hope the rest of the bug doesn't take another 5 years to fix.

@ jreg

The previously provided link (ie. the one in your screenshot) is no longer working. You'll need to provide us withy a working link for testing purposes. PM it to me if you want to keep it private.

@ jreg

Can you confirm whether the ID3v2 titles show if you add ;ASPX to the Extension List in in_mp3 config?

Here's a set of files I prepared earlier
I've added a .jnk file and one without extension to confirm that ID3 is read only if in_mp3 is used explicitly and not by default.
Also confirms that adding ;JNK to in_mp3 will find the tags.

Rename attached to .m3u

Yup. Basically the ATF engine doesn't see/use the 'assume file extension of unknown files' setting in: Prefs > Playlist. I'll add this to the internal bugtracker....

Tag confirmed

I can confirm that adding ASPX to the extension list for the input plug-in (in_mp3.dll) does makes the ID3v2 info appear. Good job finding that one. Still, you shouldn't need to edit any settings for this trivial thing to work, as it already does in WMP. Hoping for a fix soon...

Yes, and as already stated, the fix will be to get Winamp's Advanced Title Formatting to recognize the 'assume file extension for unknown types = mp3' setting.


@ ujay
btw, for extensionless links you can add ?.mp3 to the end of the url, eg.
http://www.ujay.homechoice.co.uk/ejtsic12?.mp3

(or &.mp3 if there's already a '?' in the url)

Nope. Doesn't work for me...

Prefs->Playlist is set to default (mp3), my stream is audio/mpeg, filename is 'http://some/stuff/file_id.mp3?sid=adfafafasdasddasasd' (session id is needed), also doesn't work if i append '&.mp3' to the end of url...

Any ideas?
