thread continued here
i've written a replacement for standard Winamp2's waveOut plugin, you can get it here
. it will be probably bundled with the next Winamp2 setup (v2.79, v2.8, whatever); i'd like as many people as possible to run it on their computers to verify if it doesn't do anything stupid (but it really shouldn't). as far as i know, it fixes freeze while seeking on WinXP. it has been tested on win2k/sblive, win2k/ac97 and win98se/sblive (worked perfectly, except for some stupid behaviors specific to lame win2k's waveOut implementation).
ah yeah, sourcecode is included; if you find any probs, feel free to fix them yourself :P
 TADA, my evil DirectSound
goes to Winamp setup too, please test it
. (WA3 version
will be used as default output plugin in final WA3).
[edit2] i've packed most of new stuff into one setup file
