FLAC-Support in Winamp 5.9 RC1

Hello,

today I updated my Winamp-installation on Windows 10 from Winamp 5.8 to latest 5.9 RC1.

MP3-files play fine, but it is NOT playing FLAC-files correctly, which were previously working fine too.

I am sorry, but it has been ages since I last touched my Winamp-installation.
I can't remember, if there was native support for FLAC or if I had to install a FLAC-plugin.

At the moment there is no plugin loaded at all. When I open a FLAC-file only strange sounds come out the speakers. The song-length is not shown correctly, seeking is not working and so on.

Do I have to do anything to get FLAC working again?

Thank you

FLAC playback works fine for me with Winamp 5.9

Native components:
Plugins\in_flac.dll

Dependencies:
Shared\nxlite.dll
Shared\jnetlib.dll

The LibFLAC library is now statically linked inside in_flac.dll
The installer should delete any instances of libflac.dll found in the root/Plugins/Shared folders.


Please could you post your Winamp Info Tool log

Thank you for the information regarding the Winamp Info Tool.

I do NOT have a the mentioned files "Plugins\in_flac.dll" and "Shared\nxlite.dll".
The file "Shared\jnetlib.dll" is present.

Run the 5.9 installer again.

On the "Choose Components" page, make sure FLAC is selected.

It looks like you previously unchecked everything under: Multimedia Engine => Audio Playback

Thank you - Problem solved!

I find it strange, because I did select "Previous Installation" as type of install on purpose, to keep everything as it was.
I am sure, that WMA, MIDI, OGG, FLAC and WAV for example were working before and I don't think I ever unselected any of those in the previous installation ...

Good to hear it's now all fixed :-)

Previous Installation is supposed to just read from an existing install.ini in the installation folder.
Maybe it's broken? I'll take a look...
