AAC Decoder Is Broken Now.

-Winamp 5.572 (5.5.7.2830)

Winamp Pro 5.572, Uninstalled and Reinstalled.

-Winamp Language Pack used (if any)

None

-System specs (mobo, cpu, ram)

Abit AT832X Board (DDR 400, Crossfire RD580 Northbridge, Crossfire not in use.), AMD64x2 4800+ 2.4Ghz, 2GB DDR400.

-Windows OS, including Service Packs & Locale

Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 (32 bit) Build 6002

-Video Card, Video Card Drivers version

ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT. ATI Technologies Driver 8.573.0.0

-Sound Card, Sound Card Drivers version

On Board Realtek High Definition Digital Output Driver 6.0.1.5700 (running in dolby digital live 5.1 by default to a pioneer SX-316 5.1)

-DirectX version (start > run > dxdiag)

DirectX 11

-Detailed step-by-step method of reproduction (eg. numbered list)

1) open winamp
2) use audio display in the media library to select .Mp4 media
3) play .Mp4 media (entire cd is enqueued)
4) allow media to play
5) after finishing playback of one or more .Mp4 files, The player plays a bunch of digital beeps and pops, and then windows vista notifies me that "Winamp has stopped working"
6) click to terminate winamp.


Plus confirmation that the bug exists with NO 3rd-party plugins installed,

none. files are MPEG-4 AAC LC encoded and the input plugin used is Nullsoft MP4 Demuxer v2.0 (in_mp4.dll) It seems to play MP3 files fine.

and whether it occurs with the Bento, Winamp Modern and/or Winamp Classic skin(s)
(3rd-party plugins & skins are NOT supported here).

I use the big bento skin.

@DYetan303

So these files are audio-only and have got the .mp4 file extension, yes?
(as opposed to .m4a)

Please confirm that MP4 is in the Extension List in the MP4 Demuxer plugin (in_mp4.dll) config
and that it's not in the DirectShow Decoder (in_dshow.dll) config extension list.

We can't reproduce the problem anyway.
So you'll need to provide a link to a sample file.
Please also attach your List Of Plugins.

Actually no they are your typical MPEG-4 audio AAC LC with the .m4a extension.

I'm not sure what you want as a sample file, any of these files would break copyright laws if I upload them. They're all the same, 256kbit MP4 AAC LC ripped by winamp.

Attached is the plugin list, which shows the file extensions and association .m4a listed with in_mp4.dll

I'm going to try updating the realtek HD sound driver to see if that has any effect.

Just updating, I got a new release of the sound driver for realtek HD audio. Installed it, winamp still behaves aberrantly. I checked directx too and it's up to date. this happens with any file in my library, it's not always right away but essentially I have software I paid for connected to expensive hardware I paid for which does not work because of the software I paid for (twice). Whatever changed with this update of winamp broke it. Any progress reproducing the failure? I guess I should mention this is using digital output over a fiber connected to the amplifier.

Hi

As you can see, I've split the posts into a new thread...

No, we still can't reproduce the problem.

Zip up a couple of your M4A files, upload the zip to mediafire.com or sendspace.com
and PM me the download link.

What are your settings in Winamp -> Prefs -> Playback?
Playback tab: Is "Allow 24bit" checked/unchecked?
ReplayGain tab: Is RG enabled?

Are they any details for the Windows error message?

Hi! I don't know if this could help, however on upgrading to 5.572 I've had problems on the playback of .m4a (LC) files. All of them were reported having a "0.00" length, and skipped by the player, while other kinds of file were normally played.

Fortunately I've discovered that, for some reason, the M4A extension was assigned to Nullsoft MPEG Decoder (instead of the MP4 one). Thus, removing it from the extension list was sufficient to fix the problem. Maybe it's your case too. Good luck.
