View Full Version : Problem With "Play File"
24th June 2006, 20:57
In Winamp v. 5.24, the "file" + "play file" on the menu opens the dialogue box. Prior versions let me continue using Winamp while this dialogue box is open. However, in v. 5.24, I can use the controls on the left side of winamp only if I close out the dialogue box. Is there a solution for this?

No, that was actually a bug fix (in v5.22)
* Fixed: Winamp won't restore after being minimized with a dialog box open
The Open Files Dialog should be on top of the main window in modern skins, the same as it is in classic skins.
Some 3rd-party modern skins have play/stop/next/prev/etc controls in the Playlist window (you can still access/use the playlist or ml windows when the ofd is open).
You can also access said controls via the Winamp context menu (eg. rt. click on taskbar icon > winamp > playback), or via the Tray Control plugin (included with Winamp), or via Global Hotkeys.

Ok, thank you. I liked that bug, LOL. In the prior version, I had no problems minimizing and restoring Winamp with the dialogue box open. When minimizing Winamp into the system tray, the open dialogue box just minimized along with Winamp and it reappeared when I maximized Winamp. I hope that "bug" comes back!
