Hi

Try the following DirectSound Output tweaks:

Winamp -> Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Plugins -> Output -> DirectSound -> config:

Device tab:
-Make sure your sound card is selected as Device (c/o drop-down menu)
-Checkmark "enable hardware acceleration"

Buffering tab:
-Checkmark "enable cpu usage control"

___________________________________________________________
___________________________________________________________


Still got problems?

Further out_ds config tips can be found | HERE | <-- read!

___________________________________________________________
___________________________________________________________


If the problem is specifically with MP3 playback only,
then also try disabling the built-in Fast Layer 3 EQ

Prefs > Plugins > Input > Nullsoft MPEG Audio Decoder (in_mp3.dll) > config:
Decoder tab: Uncheck "Fast Layer 3 EQ"

Then try enabling the main Winamp EQ and boosting the bass end.

___________________________________________________________
___________________________________________________________


Still got problems?

To help any further, we need to know some basic system specs, eg.
pc make/model or motherboard
cpu & ram (processor & memory)
sound card
graphics card
Windows OS
DirectX version (start -> run -> dxdiag)

Note: DirectSound Output requires DirectX v8 or higher
(current recommended version = 9.0c)

Please also confirm whether this was a clean installation of Winamp 5
or whether you installed on top of a previous version,
and whether you've installed any extra 3rd-party plugins.

This can be confirmed by providing us with a List of Plugins.

And tell us whether the problem occurs when playing back all audio formats, or just the one, eg.
mp3, wav, ogg, mod, wma, midi, Audio CD...


Also bear in mind that the problem could be being caused by some other concurrently running app/process, but more than often it is caused by old/faulty sound drivers.
In which case, be sure to check the manufacturer's site for updated sound drivers.


For Winamp 5.3x and later, chances are that you might have enabled the "Allow 24bit" option in Prefs > Playback, but your sound card/chip does not support 24bit Output. In which case you should uncheck this option.

This worked extremely well, thank you. Now Winamp doesn't skip for no reason. However, I'm still getting a lot of skipping when I open a new program or a new window in my browser.

This was a clean install of Winamp 5. I don't have any plug-ins installed unless they came with the installer file.

It happens during MP3 playback and when playing a CD. I haven't noticed with with WAV playback, but I don't really have any WAVs that are long enough for me to get a good reading from.

I should have the most updated drivers for just about everything in my system. Before I began toying with the configuration settings, this would happen pretty much all the time for no apparent reason. Now it happens when I open or close a new program, when I load a new page in my internet browser, etc. If it were a larger, more RAM-hogging program, I would assume I just need more RAM and be done with it, but I can't imagine that Winamp needs more than 256 RAM to run (when I'm not running other RAM-hogging programs).

Maybe look in your taskmanager what uses the most CPU. There might be some progs running you don't know of.
(mmh, very ironic, but right now my pc is slowing down as never before ).
Ie: spyware...
If so run spybot (google).
If not, try increasing buffer time in the DS Output plugin. (if you have not already done so)
Sorry i'm a bit short, but i think my pc's gonna crash

Good Winamp plugins by Joonas, DrO and shaneh.

Make sure you get this one:

Also, if you were mislead to SpyHunter or SpyKiller through Google AdWords, please contact Google. Google promised me some weeks ago they wouldn't do any more advertisement on my trademarked name "spybot", but I again receive complaints that they do, and this struggle with Google is going on for 4 months now.

Update: I cannot recommend to use the Google search engine any more (seing how many pushed unwanted search results appear on nearly every common term, other search engines have become more efficient in my opinion anyway).

Or you could post a HijackThis log here,
and I'll tell you whether you've got any malware installed or not,
and how to fix it.

Hmm... SpybotSD seems to get more and more home page domains by the day
http://security.kolla.de
www.safer-networking.org
http://spybot.safer-networking.de
http://beam.to/spybotsd
http://spybot.eon.net.au
http://www.spybot.info
and there's more...

Or you could just go straight to one of these for the direct download:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2471.html
http://download.com.com/3000-8022-10...ml?tag=lst-0-2



Apart from all that...
Make sure your drives are running in DMA mode, not PIO mode.

Win9x instructions:
System Control Panel > Device Manager > Drives > drive > properties > settings...

Win2k/XP instructions:
Right-click My Computer icon > Manage > Device Manager > IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers > Primary/Secondary IDE Channel(s) > properties > Advanced Settings...


Also check to see if anything else is sharing IRQ with the sound or video card.

More tips here

Heya...I seem to be having a similar problem to Nohm's.

If I'm running winamp and doing nothing else on my system it seems to run without any problems. The second I start doing anything in any other program (typing in Trillain, using 3dsMax or any of the other programs I use daily) the music skips, crackles, and pops in the most annoying manner imaginable. Interestingly, it started doing this yesterday.

I changed the settings you reccomended above with the exception of "enable hardware acceleration", which is greyed out regardless which device I choose from the dropdown (choices are 'SB Audigy Audio [9000]', 'Primary Sound Driver', and 'NVIDIA Nforce Audio'):

Cpu & RAM(processor & memory) - AMD Athlon XP 2800+ 1.00GB of RAM
Sound card - Soundblaster Audigy 9000 (?) - Bought a cheap OEM Audigy from NewEgg, not entirely sure what model or if that was a particularly good idea (choice governed by finances).
Graphics card - Nvidia GeForce FX 5600
Windows OS - Windows XP
DirectX Version: 9.0b (4.09.0000.0902)

Thanks for any help and for maintaining excellent support.

Swink


Update: I now seem to be getting shrieks and glitch noises as well as popping and skipping and it now seems to be happening in any player and when all players are closed. Bleh.

Ah yeah, and I'm not entirely sure how to check for IRQ conflicts but seeing as it was working for a good three months before yesterday...

Swink,

I had the EXACT same problem you had. I found a simple solution that worked great and will probably help other users as well. Especially people out there running on Nforce boards!

_________________________________

1. Go to your Device Manager.

2. Just below your computer name you should see the "Computer" listing. (1st on the list)

3. Double-Click it to expand the selection.

4. You should see a line there that says "ACPI uniprocessor pc" or "Normal PC"

5. Double-click the line and go to the Driver tab.

6. Click "Update Driver" and click "No" so XP doesn't interfere with what we are doing.

7. Now Click on the "Advanced" then "Next" then "Don't search I will choose a driver to install" hit "Next".

8. At this point you should see a few different drivers you can load. the driver you need to choose is "advanced configuration and power interface (ACPI) pc".

9. Load that driver and XP will prompt you to reboot.

10. Once you have rebooted it might ask you to reboot again. Go ahead and do it.

11. Go back and check in Device Manager that the line "advanced configuration and power interface (ACPI) pc" is present under the Computer header.

12. Now fire up winamp and can almost bet you won't have ANY keyboard skipping problems.

Hope this helps.

Effective, but....

The steps outlined by DJ Egg were effective for correcting the sudden onset of mild static I experienced, however it had other effects which I consider adverse.

For example, the output from WinAmp is now so tiny that I have to crank the wave volume slider on my soundboard's control panel which causes a corresponding increase in all system sounds (such as menu ticks, e-mail alerts, and incoming ICQ messages). This is highly annoying, not to mention deafening. If I want to get a decent volume from WinAmp, I have to either plug my ears when the system is going to make a sound or I have to turn my sounds off. Not a very nice trade.

Also, the CPU buffering option had no effect, so like some other users who have already reported back, I left it unchecked.

I have the current version of DirectX (9.0c). My soundcard is a Santa Cruz from Turtle Beach. My processor is a Pentium III at 800 MHz with 512 megabytes of RAM. I'm running Windows 2000 Professional.

I had not updated WinAmp for several months, nor had I updated DirectX. This problem came out of nowhere, or so it seems, and I only updated after I noticed it was happening. At first I tried installing the new WinAmp 5.08 over my old version (5.03, I think), but this didn't help. I then used the instructions elsewhere on this forum to perform a clean install.

Like other users, I tried playing files in other programs and did not experience the hissing static. To me, this seems to indicate that the problem is in WinAmp, though I'm sorry I have no idea how to help pinpoint it.

Thanks to everyone for the kind assistance.

Did you look at the other thread linked to in my first post above?

Further out_ds tweaks here

eg. you might also need to checkmark "create primary buffer"...


Re: volume

Were you using out_wave before?
WaveOut is not recommended under Win2k.

DirectSound volume is proportionate to WaveOut volume, eg. if system WaveOut volume is at 80%, then this is equal to 100% with DirectSound.

Try increasing Winamp main volume and EQ preamp volume sliders instead.

Apart from that, you could try enhancing the volume/output with a dsp plugin, eg. Enhancer (though there's hundreds of others to choose from).

I did, in fact, and though I found it enlightening, none of the suggestions proved effective vis-a-vis my volume issues. I suppose that makes this post on the wrong thread now, but....

I checked this box and, like the CPU usage box, it had no effect. My soundcard is only about one year old, anyway.

Re: volume

WaveOut is not recommended under Win2k.
I don't recall what I was using before. Why is out_wave not recommended for Windows 2000? When I switch to it now, 1% volume on WinAmp is more than sufficient and, in fact, if I have it any louder, it's too loud. When I move WinAmp's slider now, it seems to control the system wave output volume.

My previous setup--whatever it was... I'm sorry for my lack of attention in this regard--worked something like this: WinAmp provided some output which could be controlled with its built-in volume slider, but this output was then routed through the controls on my soundboard's slider panel. If I increased the soundboard's slider, all wave sounds on the system increased in volume, including those sounds produced by WinAmp. If I increased the slider in WinAmp, only WinAmp's output was affected and so I could control it without controling the entire system at the same time. Ideally, I would like to return to this functionality.

I'm afraid I don't quite understand your first paragraph (above) about proportionate volumes. I gave the preamp a try and while it did increase the output volume (very slightly) it also made the sound all squashy like the speakers were inside an armchair or some other fluff-filled container.

When using the out_ds library, I have to have WinAmp's slider at maximum to get even a glimmer of sound from it. I then have to go boost the volume on wave sounds on the soundboard's control panel to hear it at any sort of reasonable volume (which leads to the situation I described earlier about deafening system alerts).
Quote:

This is undoubtedly a nice plug-in, but whatever it does, the volume slider is moving all over the place of its own accord (presumably to whatever level it feels is best) and so the music soars and dives seemingly at random.

The sound card might be only a year old, but what about the drivers?
Do you have the correct & latest drivers from the manufacturer?

Have you installed any new hardware recently?
Is the sound or graphics card sharing IRQ with any other hardware? (see Device Manager).

Re: WaveOut
Basically, waveOut implementation in Win2k was very poor, which is why DirectSound is recommended (Windows Media Player uses DirectSound by default, with no option to switch to waveOut).

Do you have the latest Win2k service pack (sp4)?
Have you got all the latest chipset/drivers for your motherboard?

What file formats are you playing?
Just mp3, or a mixture? (mp3, wav, wma, aac, midi, ogg, mod, audio cd, etc).
Are all formats affected?
Do other media players exhibit similar problems?

You could also zip up a DirectX Diagnostic Log (start > run > dxdiag > save all info) and a HijackThis log and attach it to your next reply (attachment feature available via "Post A Reply" button).

Apart from that, try a clean install of Winamp 5.08
then apply those out_ds tweaks again (select correct sound device and enable hw acceleration).

I didn't at the time of my posting, but between that time and the time of your reply, I finally found a slightly newer version. (The manufacturer's Web site isn't tremendously helpful, as they seem to have focused on showing off pictures of their hardware instead of putting up a lot of useful information or forums for assistance.) Installing these (or perhaps even reinstalling the older ones) seems to have corrected the problem.

Thanks again for the great help!

jittery playback

i've got a clean install of winamp 5, no spyware or any crap running, two pcs, and on one of them it runs flawlessly, have never heard so much as a tiny skip.. but on the other one i get jittery playback at times, and for instance, when i minimize winamp and then click the tray icon to restore it, it skips for half a second, every time... the only thing i can think of that must be related, or be the cause, is on this pc (the one with the trouble) my sound is played back through my pro tools digi 02 rack unit, via firewire, and from there into studio monitors, as opposed to my other pc that has had no troubles ever, which just plays it back through a standard sound card... i tried clickin the plugins->output->direct sound and checking the digi02 as the output, which may have helped a little, i cant tell yet, i also tried the cpu usage control, but there's still some skips/jitters... any ideas??

thanks,
devon

winamp should never skip, most (if not all) of the input pugins have high priority decoding threads (check and make sure decoding thread priority is set above normal)

if you still have 'skips' (aka. bad bad system lag) try using the waveout plugin instead of the directsound one

all else fails, just set winamp's priority to 'realtime'.. if it still skips then, you have something majorly wrong with your computer

Nah, he's got some spyware in the log which is probably bogging the system down, and he really should've posted in a new thread, instead of reviving/ruining this FAQ thread, heh.

Hey there
I have tried most everything in the above post... Here's what's going on ... like a week or so it started ..right after I updated to the 5.1... and now still with the 5.2.. I stream via Shoutcast using my Winamp....and my music is really distorted to the people that tune in...on my end ..it sounds fine .... but to the listeners it's all distorted ...so I tuned in on my other PC and yes ..it is horrible sounding.... you guys already have all my PC info from our convos in another thread ...about videos ...but I can give you whatever you need ...have you any suggestions here ? I'm streaming at 48kbs... I know it's not a lot ..but even when I was only streaming at 24 ... it used to be just fine ?? Thanks ... Dragon
here's the link to my station if you want to here what I'm talking about

I just did a completely clean install of Windows XP SP2. Winamp 5.2 skips for the first time ever.. and it's really bad/annoying sometimes. Keyboard typing seems to trigger this.. but loading hard drives, max/min'ing windows, etc does it too.

I had installed before, and it was fine.. after this completely clean install, though, it is being problematic. I have no idea what to do.

2.2 P4, 512ram, XP SP2.. some specs if they're needed, I don't know, it ran 100% fine before. So strange.

Still poping... and not in the good way

*sigh*
tried everything listed in all the threads I could find about it (even reinstall), but I still have popping sounds in WinAmp (and only winamp, all other media apps play fine).

SO, went to make a reply to a thread... but none of them have had any activity since last year, so I thought I'd reply to this one *shrug* Maybe I'll start a new one if this one isn't answered.

It said to leave details, I leave details:
Dell Inspiron 1501
Vista Home Pro
AMD Turion64x2 TL-50 1.6GHz
894 RAM (yeah, go figure, they jipped me)
SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC (and yes, Disable All Enhancements is already checked)

Here's hoping someone sees this and can help, as I'd really like to be able to use WinAmp.

I didn't have the same problems as the OP, I got an error message saying Bad Directsound Driver. The error code was 88780078.

This worked perfectly for me.

Try the following DirectSound Output tweaks:

Winamp -> Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Plugins -> Output -> DirectSound -> config:

Device tab:
-Make sure your sound card is selected as Device (c/o drop-down menu)
-Checkmark "enable hardware acceleration"

Buffering tab:
-Checkmark "enable cpu usage control"

Thanks for the great help.

To help any further, we need to know some basic system specs, eg.
pc make/model or motherboard
cpu & ram (processor & memory)
sound card
graphics card
Windows OS
DirectX version (start -> run -> dxdiag)

Note: DirectSound Output requires DirectX v8 or higher
(current recommended version = 9.0c)

Please also confirm whether this was a clean installation of Winamp 5
or whether you installed on top of a previous version,
and whether you've installed any extra 3rd-party plugins.

This can be confirmed by providing us with a List of Plugins.

And tell us whether the problem occurs when playing back all audio formats, or just the one, eg.
mp3, wav, ogg, mod, wma, midi, Audio CD...
I have the same problem when using Nero whileI play mp3 or wav. Althought it seems not only a Winamp problem, but also in Media Player or else.

My system:
Core2Du0 E6600
2 GB RAM
500 MB HDD SATA
Asus P5B Mainboard
Soundmax HD Soundcard onboard
NVidia GeForce 8800 GTS 320 MB
Direct X 9.0c


I have done all the settings you told above but nothing really helped.
As I told above, I think it is a general problem not only Winamp, but I don't know any solution (nor did I find one)

I also have this problem. I don't have the pro version though but i don't see how that would make a big difference at all. I'm running it on a Inspiron 9100 (yeah i know, it's old..lol). I'm bumping this to see if anyone found a solution yet.

Winamp Essentials

I to have found lockup problems with winamp and have found it's not winamp causing the problems, at least up front, I have uninstalled Winamp Essentials and that seemed to do the trick so far, Winamp_Essentials is an unsigned program addon plugin any way and shouldn't be used. Winamp website shouldn't let unsign addons or plugins into there downloads as they could be written by anyone with who knows what intentions. I have 556 installed. Kaspersky firewall warns it to be a dangerous plugin, but have been using it for a couple of months with constant problems with winamp, I didn't have any problems before installing this plugin.

Just my experience
