Winamp crashes/closes after a while

I have a very annoying problem with Winamp that crashes/closes after a while, can vary between 1-2 days to a few hours only.

I use winamp + DSP for our web radio.
(I have installed the latest version of winamp on my computer running Windows 10.)

I am grateful for all the help that will solve this problem.
I've attached the latest crash-log.
Thank you in advance.

Any help here, please?
It seems that winamp and/or DSP is unstable?

If you're using the patched version of the latest winamp (Winamp 5.666 Build 3516 (5.6.6.3516)), then it's most likely the DSP plugin. Is it crashing when it's playing a specific file?

Also this might be better posted in the shoutcast forum if you're using it for shoutcast

Winamp crashes/closes after a while comment

You can also just install a pre-patched version of Winamp 5.666 (from http://getwinamp.com/#download) that includes the in_mp3 fix along with another plug-in crash fix as well as stripping out the things that just don't work any more.
That's a lot simpler than having to mess around with multiple installers and as the Winamp developer responsible for that last release it's a safe option to go with. LG C7

I am using the latest version of Winamp, 5.6.6.3516.
No, it does'nt seem to be related to any specific song/file.
It may sometimes take 2-3 days before winamp suddenly crashes.

I posted a crash log in my first post.
I'm really grateful for all your help with this.

My [latest version Winamp] also crashes on Windows 7; although sporadically. Something like every couple of days, but it varies- sometimes weeks pass by without a problem a sometimes I get a crash every day. And by crash I mean a freeze up when the songs keep playing and changing, but I have no longer control over Winamp [and all I can do is to close it via the Windows Task Manager]. And I also do not see any pattern, any catalyst

Could be a memory issue.

You didn't take a look at the profile
if you had you would have seen that there are posts from 2004 and 2005 and recent posts.

so just a fair warning , either play nice or don't play

in other words, you don't act like you are doing now.... comprende?
