I am running winamp and shoutcast on a computer and let it play day and night, at least that's meant to do. Winamp seems to crash every night and the counter of winamp is at about 650 minutes. Also winamp does not respond at the Next button. I need to reload the playlist to be able to play songs again.

i've had winamp open for more than 10.8 hours (650 min) and its never crashed. althought it wasn't playing for the whole time or streaming for that matter. maybe its a bug in shoutcast.

possible, i does only crash when shuffle is turned on when in repeat mode it does not crash. Weird, possible bug in winamp's shuffle routine.

i've had winamp open for days playing 24/7 with shuffle and repeat on and it's never crashed.

Hi! A little off subject but why don't you upgrade to the new version. I'm not a 'puter genious (far from it) but isn't there a chance that the newer version is more stable?
I don't know, Nullsoft kind of scared us with 2.63, never downloaded it and glad I didn't. I am still using 2.62 because it shows a streaming buffer box, I don't like not being able to see that. Boy damned if you do and damned if you don't huh Nullsoft http://forums.winamp.com/ubb/smile.gif
I think the buffer box for SHOUTcast streams should be an optional item not something completely removed.

I totally agree! I think that you should be able to configure when you want the streaming box to show up. I don't like it - even when I have winamp active.

That was a shitty release of Winamp, didn't last very long... I was actually the one who told Jason about the bug. Get the new version... 2.91 (if you haven't already) its way better!!
