Go here, download and install the MIDI plug-in then run Winamp. Report exactly what happens; if it crashes - give me exact crash address and your system specs.
Thanks.

Do I have to cross-post it everywhere or what ? Because of this F#@! bug Winamp v2.71 doesn't support MIDI decompression. If you have Win2K, download this thing immediately and run it - no need to run through your whole playlist, this crash happens on Winamp startup. Report your configuration here EVEN IF IT WORKS OK. Thanks.

Thanks, Ice. Justin said that it crashes on his Win2K machine. He doesn't seem to have time to run this build. It is possible that this version won't crash anymore, but I need everyone to run it in order to prove it. Thanks again.
BTW, you don't even need to play a MIDI file - that troublemaking crash happens on Winamp startup. Simply copy the dll and run Winamp.

Problems here: the plugin doesn't cause a crash unless you play a .mid file, which seems to play OK, but WinAmp then hangs on exit, and I have to use CTRL + ALT + DEL to kill the app.

Win2K SP1
Winamp 2.71

PIII 500MHz
256M RAM
Creative PCI soundcard

What information do you want regarding the crash? Win2K doesn't seem to have a 'Details' button when a crash occurs, and the crash doesn't record in Dr. Watson... can you give more precise instructions? Sorry to be a pain

Hope this is some use...

Jack.

Update: get the second version (in_midi_log.zip from http://pp666.cjb.net/foo.htm) and send me (peterpw666@hotmail.com) output log files ('c:\dmp.log'). They will enable me to quickly find what's wrong. Those hangs are probably being caused by lame MCI drivers - try selecting the regular 'MIDI mapper' device and report what happens.
Thanks again.
