View Full Version : dsp converts to *.wav

19th May 2003, 01:38
i have installed winamp 2.91, the shoutcast dsp plugin and the shoutcast dnas server 1.9.2, all on the same machine.

i can connect to the server from another machine using winamp 3 no problem, just the music is speeded up and garbled. i can access the html pages etc.

my problem is that when i play the tracks in my winamp 2.91 playlist, winamp plays them at 10 times the normal speed and converts them to *.wavs and places in the root of my c:\ drive.....

as this is my 1st look at shoutcast and internet broadcasting i am not really sure how this system works, but through searching this forum ive come to the conclusion that, it is supposed to just stream the mp3's i play and the only conversion is changing the bitrate.

i am sorry if this sounds like i am a complete noob, but hey i am ;(

any help would be apreciated

sounds like you have a output plugin that puts the file to disk. check your output plugins this is not a bug or error, and is prob not a shoutcast error.

The syptoms of a file to disk plug in!
Also next time you might wanna try posting in technical support (thats where if you have a prob we can fix it fast!!!)

Set the output plugin in Winamp 2.91 to DirectSound or WaveOut. Also delete the .wav files it created.

You guys were right, ive been using winamp 3 for ages now, but since i had to install winamp2 again, it seems to have picked up the last settings i used for my old winamp 2 and the last thing i did on that was to convert mp3's to wavs.

thanx for your help guys, problem sorted and is now up and running, now i need to sort out some playlists ;D

thanx again

p.s. i meant to post it in the other forum, but as i had like 16 windows open looking through for this problem and spotting others that might posibly be similar, i went and postred in here, but, as soon as i realised, i tried to delete the topic and couldnt. sry bout that
