View Full Version : BUG: avi demuxer v0.5 / ipod nano 5g not detected
29th November 2011, 19:25
Some of my .avi file don't played correctly. The will played in a higher speed and without any sound.
The vlc player plays them correctly.
Another bug I found, is that my Ipod Nano 5G Video isn't detected by Winamp. I used the drive detection many times, but winamp don't find my Ipod.
I hope it can be fixed. :)

i don't believe that version of the nano is supported (based on the details from the FAQ (http://www.winamp.com/help/FAQ) and other user's comments.
with the avi issue, it's most likely from how it was encoded and not being quite what in_avi expects. you could try associating .avi with the directshow plug-in to see if that makes any improvement with the playback (not really my area but is one of the easiest options to try out that i remember).

Can you tell me please, how I can play the videos with the direct show plugin. In the options of the direct-show plugin .avi is associated. I can't deaktivate the avi demuxer, I only can uninstall it.

when Winamp is not running, rename in_avi.dll to in_avi.off and that should just leave it as the directshow plug-in trying to handle things. if that doesn't work, try removing .avi from the directshow plug-in options and revert the .off change (though really video stuff is not my area so other than messing around with which plug-in tries to handle the file is about all i can suggest).

The directshow plug-in doesn't work too. ^^
But I tried to play it with the windows media player and this works, too. This is really anoying. I want to switch to winamp because of the medialibary, but some of my videos, which are worked with other players don't work with winamp.
I think I had to use the good old vlc-player for my videos.

Can you give more details about it? thanks.

Auflösung : 720x416
Codec : XviD MPEG-4 codec
FPS : 25,00
BitRate : 2079 Kbps
Qualitätsfaktor : 0,28 b/px
Codec : ATSC/A-52 Dolby AC3
Anzahl Kanäle : 2
Abtastrate : 48000 Hz
BitRate : 192 Kbps
These are the details that you want to know?
I think there's a problem with the audio codec. All the videos which are not played correct, have this audio codec. >.<

you'd need to install an AC3 filter (isn't installed by default on a large number of Windows machines). best bet is to install ffdshow and that support for it is enabled in the ffdshow audio decoder configuration (as per http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=293396 which seems to be the same issue).

Okay then I will do that later.
But it would be nice if it will be installed with winamp. Or to do it like the vlc player, without installing the codec. :)

ffdshow cannot be shipped with Winamp so that won't happen and VLC has always been better at video/dvd type playback (as AC3 is often used for). though generally as long as the codecs are present then Winamp will use them (but i can see why it'd seem annoying / not as good as player X, etc) but legal aspects become more of an issue so in some cases it's better to just not do things directly (as is done).
