v2.80 freezes on win9x - round ][

previously dealt here, here and here.

be sure to read common bugz thread first, it contains solutions to most common problems people report here.

First, update to v2.80a - uploaded 14th May
(and YES, it IS still labelled v2.80, but it IS v2.80a, and this IS the one now available on winamp.com/download; ask this again and get censored/deleted/banned)
Second, install this patch (updated 05/15/2002; this is a temporary solution, these fixes will be included with the next Winamp version - v2.81 or whatever).

if you still get the problem after the 2 steps above, do following things:
- change output plugin to DirectSound (in preferences / plugins / output), this should fix the problem (but if it does, post here anyway to let us know that waveOut is still broken so we can fix it)
- check what file types are affected (eg. if this affects only MP3s or other types (WAV, OGG, etc) as well).
- post here and report full system specs, including sound card type and exact OS version.
- Also include a list of any 3rd-party plugins installed (gen/output/input/dsp).


If the problem persists with 2.80a with wa2update, even after switching to DS Output, you can downgrade to an earlier version here or here.
Wait for 2.81 release before upgrading.

Only post here if you have any useful info, eg. see Muzikmann's post below.
Do NOT post here otherwise, eg. see Sheercomedy's useless post below.
