It just ignores it and adds all the goddamned subfolders...
 13th December 2003, 08:24 #562 psychomonkey Junior Member   Join Date: Dec 2003 Location: Germany (currently) Posts: 1 Hi, Ive noticed a couple of small bugs in the last release. Not major problems but time consuming, to say. System Specs: ATHLON XP-M @ 2.6GHZ ATI RADEON 9000 64MB - M 1024 DDR 120 GIG / 60 External SOUNBLASTER EXTIGY over USB 2.0 (support for 1.1 only - not sure) WIN XP SP1 with all service packs Drivers are also all at latest release Firstly when installing the latest build and upgrading from winamp3 afterwards the stereo sound is processed through the front and center speakers and not sent to the rear speakers (5.1), I know this is not expected and lots of plugins exist to deal with this, but in all latest builds from winamp2 and 3 it was automatically processed through 5.1 speakers, this may lie in the mixer driver but since I have encountered the same problem with Musicmatch Jukebox and Several other players I am ruling this out. (Hats off for the Nullsoft team as other commercial systems did not deal with this issue, winamp was prepared for it!) Solution to this problem is to install Dee3 with winamp5 and disable all effects, then the output will be through all speakers. Now the one thing which should be kept in mind is that the Extigy comes with CMSS which should make all stereo music 5.1 capable. But again I am ruling this out. I also tried fixing the mixer driver (that used to be a problem related to 3 speaker only output), but that did not solve it so the only option I was left with was Dee3. ------------- Secondly, one bug related to the Media Library, when pausing tracks that were played straight from the media library and trying to play another track from the media library or playlist winamp5 seems confused on what to do, it will show the right file info, but it seems to be unable to play the newly selected track until you restart winamp. ------------- Another bug which I have found with streaming media is extreme crackling with some Ambient sounds (I am sure this is mixer related but Ill mention it anyway, because it never happened in winamp3), and its not the usual crackeling you can expect from USB transfers, it is very loud and low frequency, when reverting to a normal song on the HD (which I must mention is also IDE over USB) no problems with the sound occur. I am aware of USB limitations even in USB2.0 which relate to data transfer rates and CPU usage, which can cause crackeling but it is not similar to the crackeling produced by some streaming media stations. ------------- Well a couple of bugs lead to a few. Ive noticed another issue with skin changing (probably has been posted already, its fairly obvious). When downloading a skin, it will install the skin no problem, when reverting back to the default winamp modern skin, no problems, but when trying to change skin via right click in winamp after that it wont change the skin until you restart winamp5. Other than that I find the new winamp5 layout et al excellent, especially the media library - very convenient. And off course the headbanging Llamas!!!

I'll be more precise as they remain in the last beta.

Windows XP SP1
Winamp 5 RC 666
Athlon 850 - 256 Mo
Sound AC'97 onboard

1) The button going right ...
Not really important but I report it anyway ...
-> Choose a "Winamp 2 Style" Skin
-> Open Playlist
-> Minimize it
-> Do a "Drag-and-drop" anywhere of the "Maximize Button"
-> When your mouse cursor leaves the button, it goes to the right (1 pixel ...)

2) The Web Info unreadables : very annoying ...
-> With a skin I made, I have a library with dark letters on a bright background.
-> When I toggle "Show Infos" on to see the CD cover, the web page that appears have the same colors as my skin (I tried several colors) but :
- the page background is the dark one
- the table that is the text background is the bright one
- the letters stay white or very bright blue
=> So the white text out of the bright background is unreadable.

Reproduced.

After making changes, and closing & reopening Winamp,
the -Recurse option returns back to Default

Report sent
Thank you

Alas, I can't reproduce any of these.

There is very little connection between Winamp 5.0 and Winamp3
Winamp 5 is the direct upgrade from Winamp 2.9x
Winamp3 was a different product, built on a different engine entirely.

TSGH -> Multiple Speaker Output

Adjusting some of the DirectSound Output settings might fix most of your problems.

Apart from that, I'd guess that most of your issues are Extigy/driver related.
Beats me why people are still being fooled into buying Creative soundcards?
Then again, if you're connected via a USB v1.1 slot instead of 2.0,
this could well explain everything...

When I use this to select an album to play, Winamp always plays what was previously highlighted in this window instead. This problem does not seem occur in any of the other Media Library windows, and does not occur if I double-click manually. I'm running Win2K SP4, and Winamp 5.0rc666, however this problem occurred on all versions of Winamp 5 that I've had, I don't remember whether it happened with Winamp 2.

1. Sorry for the duplicates ... I just thought it could be corrected in WA5 ...

2. I tried ! But the background value and the foreground value are the same for library and "Web infos" except they are inversed ! I think we should have a custom font color for the web infos.

Tooltips doesn't show up when Freetype rendering disabled

All tooltips doesn't show up, but the box container for the tooltips do, when Freetype TTF rendering is disabled from the Modern Skin preference.

Hardware:
Intel Celeron 2.2GHz
256MB DDR266 RAM
Realtek AC97 Audio

Software:
Windows XP Pro with SP1 (support for East-Asian languages enabled)
Winamp 5 RC 666

How to reproduce bug:
1. Install winamp50rc666_full.exe
2. In Preference, Skins->Modern Skins->Font Rendering, uncheck "Use Freetype internal TTF Rendering"
3. Hover over something that should produce a tooltip window on the main window and the tooltip container is displayed, but not with the tooltip. (see attached file. it has bitmap font display disabled, but the bug is still there even when it is enabled)

(This bug doesn't appear when using classic skins)

I hope this helps. Please look into this problem.

Thank you for Winamp. It just rocks.

I end up having to detach the video window in order to close it. I hope that I explained that well enough. I'm using RC666 with the modern skin, though it had been doing it since RC8 I think.

 13th December 2003, 23:40 #574 Wombert Junior Member   Join Date: Nov 2003 Posts: 45 CDDB support broken hi there, unfortunately, CDDB doesn't work for me. I have two computers running Windows XP and RC666, and they both can't retrieve CDDB track infos... nothing happens when I select the CD drive in the media library, and when I right-click a track, go to track info and click cddb, it says 'retrieving'...'success', but only seems to return 'Unknown Artist', 'Unknown Album' etc... I just called a friend and asked him to insert a CD and select it in the library... as soon as he clicks on his CD drive in the media library, the small CDDB box pops up, says 'success', et voilà, the title informations are inherited into the media library track list...

Obviously, it's not a bug, yes? Make sure you're using the Full version, not Lite (though cddb might also be included in Lite, but I didn't test it) Make sure the correct connection type is selected in: Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> General Preferences Make sure CDDB is enabled Prefs -> Plugins -> Input -> Nullsoft CD plugin -> config: Checkmark "use cddb" (requires winamp restart to take effect) Make sure no 3rd-party plugin is installed from a previous installation, eg. CDReader plugin And finally, and most importantly, make sure your firewall is configured to allow Winamp full internet access. You do run a firewall, yes? Playlist -|- Twitter

It would be useful if Winamp could use a Home folder (location stored in the registry) for storing Winamp.ini and Winamp.m3u, or default to a My Documents folder. in_vorbis still not fixed when a stream is interrupted due to internet problem etc. Sure Peter gave you the source!

While I understand the benefits of doing this, I myself like it the way it is, eveything in the /Winamp directory. Makes it easy to deal with and backup and stuff.

Yup, it's in the wishlist. Maybe for 5.01 or later, hopefully.

There's always the Profiler plugin...

It's been reported to the devs

Open Winamp with classic skin Resize playlist to taste Close Winamp Remove all .wal skins (you can keep 'winamp modern' installed) Place 100 or more wsz skins in Skins dir Reopen Winamp (note: playlist size should still be same as it was before) Checkmark: Prefs -> Skins -> random skin on play Does the playlist window restore to default size each time the skin changes on trackchange? I've tried it with 30+ wsz files, and the answer to that question is "no". Cannot Reproduce! Oh, and show us where someone else has reported this bug!
That other person would be me I edited the orginal for readability.

to be accurate the bug first occured in beta 2 was fixed in rc8 and broken agian in rc10

the screen shot is what it appears as immediately after the resize the old size partialy stays until the next song or playlist is clicked no doctoring at all and only 1 instance of winamp loaded

here is my system info
-512 meg pc2700 ram
-128mb msi gf 4 4200 newest dets from nvidia
-sblive xgamer classic newest drivers from creative

clean install:
-selected all skins ziped them and moved elsewhere
-control panel -> add/remove -> winamp

Yes delete all then I confirmed the winamp directory was gone
it was. Located rc666 installer and ran not enabling the agent to run
I then set my settings for my visualization

fire
thin lines
fast fall off
slow peaks

I then took the rar with only the skins in it and put them back in the skin directory.

Total skins: 662

The attached file is the current winamp.ini studio.xnf and the full startup list document.

The winamp and studio files are from a fresh load on my machine. And now for some reason the size is increased but still does not save.

I am the admin on the machine and I cleaned up my startup.

I tried to check before I post the bug report; guess I missed that.

Will the bug be resolved in the final version?

Otherwise, I'll have to pass on that one (/goes to look for some small freebie to handle rar only) @ peasant so, you reckon this is a bug then? ie. you NEED to disable internal freetype font rendering?

I posted this here because it IS a bug
I'm using the full version
I have enabled CDDB
I don't even have had a previous installation on that second computer
I haven't installed any 3rd-party plugin
I am NOT running a firewall
I am NOT completely dumb
and I did NOT complain about the fact that Winamp doesn't automatically check the cddb for track information - I have intentionally set my connection preferences to 'not connected to the internet'. But if I _am_ connected to the internet and then manually trigger a CDDB query, it just does fucking nothing but telling me about 'success' that never happens. This is not an issue on my side, but a bug in Winamp. It's perfectly okay that it doesn't automatically connect to the CDDB, but it shouldn't tell me about a successful query and then insert crap like Unknown Artist and stuff when I, and I say this again, manually query the CDDB. Please don't consider me to be a blithering idiot, I have well checked any possible reason for this issue before posting in this forums
Oh and... just FYI, after the CDDB has been queried, Winamp re-reads all ID3 information on the playlist (even if I haven't yet enqueued the CD in the media library)... not very funny, because in the latest release, the title formatting is broken... makes your playlist really, really ugly (I have no clue why it's refreshing the playlist anyway... I mean, why does the media library tell the playlist to refresh after a CDDB query... )

 14th December 2003, 15:39 #591 Wombert Junior Member   Join Date: Nov 2003 Posts: 45 Oh... Something else just came up my mind... Winamp is installed into the current user's account by default... I.e. other users don't get the start menu entries, quick launch icons etc... Maybe you should either give the user the choice whether Winamp should be installed for all users on the machine or just for the current user, or install it for all users on the machine (which is afaik the recommended and usual way for multiuser environments on Windows)
 14th December 2003, 15:42 #592 DJ Egg TechoratorWinamp & Shoutcast Team   Join Date: Jun 2000 Posts: 35,851 The way I see it . . . You have two choices: Either use cddb and select the correct internet connection type, or disable cddb. You see, if your original bug report would've included all this extra information in the first place, then you might've received a different response. Oh well . . . I give in then. Someone else can deal with this thread for the last day of beta. I need a break. kthxbye ps. multi-user support isn't implemented. Hopefully for 5.01 or later. For now, install to the main admin account, and use the Winamp Profiler plugin Playlist -|- Twitter

the program you would be looking for is winrar it is shareware with a 30 day trial it handles zip and rar and many other files i think ultamate zip also handles them

I was just listening to an mp3 (Everclear - Local God) playing in WA5rc666 under Win2kSP4 with an Audigy. Someone came into my room and I chatted for a minute, then when they left, I noticed that the music had stopped. Reflexively I tried to click Play, only to find that WA5 was no longer running! On starting it up, all the settings I changed since I last shut WA5 down by hand have gone. No error messages received. What's the deal?

It's either the text scrolling is choppy or the visualization is moving like crazy. any animations (even simple ones, alpha blending or drawers) slows down everything and cranks up CPU to 100%. this was not a problem with the previous beta versions or WA3.

Report this to the 3rd Party Skin Maker, its not Winamp's fault.
