I have Winamp v5.08e on Windows XP. The proxy setting seems to be ignored. Using ethereal I see that Winamp still tries to access the "original" address that I input in File -> Play URL (or from a playlist) instead of contacting the proxy. I.e. I'm trying to play http://foo.bar.com/file.ogg
, it goes ahead and tries to contact foo.bar.com on port 80 directly and never even tries to touch the proxy I input. This goes for both a proxy that takes a username and password (i.e. myuser:pass@myproxy:8080) and a proxy that takes no username (i.e. myotherproxy:8085).
I have read the FAQ, the Help pages etc. as instructed but haven't found anything that resembles this problem. Is this a known issue, and if so, how can I go about solving it?
