Winamp 5.33 Beta Preview

Winamp 5.33 Beta, Build 1079

Winamp 5.33 Beta Full
Winamp 5.33 Beta Pro (asks for key during install)
Winamp 5.33 Beta Standard (same as Full but no ML or viz)

If you upgrade on top of an already existing version then, unless you backup the media library database first, you cannot go back to 5.32 or earlier. This is because the media library database in 5.33 is now saved in a unicode compatible format.

Please report any issues with the beta in this thread only.
Make sure your report is complete, according to the stickys in Bug Reports
(clean install, no 3rd-party plugins, full method of reproduction, etc).

Particular areas which need testing are the local media library, Watch Folders scan, unicode characters in the media library, etc.

Note that only new ml playlists are now saved to .m3u8, i.e. it doesn't convert already-existing ml playlists from .m3u (ansi) to .m3u8 (unicode).
