View Full Version : Problem playing .wmv files
8th February 2006, 18:28
I have no problem playing .wmv files in Winamp 5.112. However, after upgrading to 5.12 and 5.13, all my .wmv files will skip while playing and the name will disappear in the playlist editor. In the place where the song name was, there is now this --- . Hopefully this issue can be resolved, otherwise I will just stick with my Winamp 5.112.

cpu, graphics & sound cards, etc?
Confirmation of a clean install of 5.13 with no extra 3rd-party plugins?
Confirmation that in_wm.dll version is v3.0 (see Prefs > Plugins > Input)?
Windows Media Player/Codecs version? (dxdiag log)
There was a new in_wm.dll included with Winamp 5.12 Full/Pro versions.
The WM title display (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=156839#512) issue is possibly already resolved in the latest 5.2 beta (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=236311)
Can you please also confirm whether there's any non-english/latin characters in the filenames or tags.
Also tell us whether Advanced Title Formatting is enabled in Prefs > Titles, and what your current ATF string is set to.
Note, if you want to revert to 5.112 behaviour, then go to:
Prefs > Plugins > Input > Windows Media Decoder v3 (in_wm.dll) > config,
and remove WMV from the Filetypes extension list.
Then go to: Prefs > Plugins > Input > DirectShow Decoder (in_dshow.dll) > config,
and add ;WMV to the extension list (note, no drm support).

The computer is a Pentium 4 2.53 ghz with 1 gig ram running Windows XP. I have a Radeon 9600 graphics card and E-MU sound card. It is a clean install of winamp with no 3rd party. ATF is enabled and set at [%artist% - ]$if2(%title%,$filepart(%filename%)). in_wm.dll version is v3.0
Windows media player is 10.00.00.3646.
I moved the wmv to direct show and now the files play perfectly. Hopefully this information will help.
