WinAmp won't play .mid files

I installed WinAmp 2.91 on a Dell 2.8 GHz machine with 512 Meg of RAM. It will play .wav files but it won't play .mid files. The play bar moves across the WinAmp player, but no sound comes out. Any ideas what I did wrong and how to make it right?

Thanks

Henry

I can confirm with a WinXP machine using a clean install, with in_midi.dll, out_wave.dll, out_ds.dll, and winamp.exe. Egg, Nunzio, JM, any ideas?

But can you reproduce it with 5.09? Cause 2.91 is not supported.

yes, i did reproduce it with 5.09.

i didn't even realize the post referenced 2.91 lol.

With that, it might be a wise idea to go up to 5.09.

I un-installed Winamp 2.9 and installed Winamp 5.09 and it made no difference. Winamp will play .wav files but not .mid files. I don't understand your statement "I can confirm with a WinXP machine using a clean install, with in_midi.dll, out_wave.dll, out_ds.dll, and winamp.exe."

in_midi.dll, out_wave.dll, out_ds.dll are in the plugins folder and Winamp.exe is in the Winamp folder, all under Program Files/Winamp.

I don't know what to do now.

Thanks

Double click the little speaker icon in the systray (tasktray) and make sure the SW Synth (or MIDI) volume is at a good level or mute is not checked.

-or-

1. Winamp Ctrl+P
2. Plug-ins > Input
3. double click 'Nullsoft MIDI player'
4. Device tab
5. in the 'Device:' dropdown box select another MIDI device. Maybe something that closely reflects your sound card or "Direct Music / Microsoft Synthesizer (with output)"
6. close out of prefs

Voila!!!! Thanks much. I did both of your suggestions and now Winamp plays .mid along with the other formats.

Thanks again.
