Winamp crashes a lot since version 5.11.

After extensive research to isolate the bug, this is what I found:

The equalizer automatic processing function causes Winamp to crash when the default setting/auto-load preset is something else than the standard setting (standard = all sliders at center position) and the song changes from a non-mp3 type to another song (which can be either non-mp3 or mp3). The first non-mp3 song is played fine, but as soon as the song ends or you skip it, winamp crashes. I tested with .wav, .ogg, .mpg and .flac. Mp3 does everything fine.
When the auto-load preset or the default setting is the same as the standard setting, nothing happens.

The output plugin or any other installed plugin does not have anything to do with this. I tested it with clean install of winamp full and winamp lite, with the default classic skin and with a modern skin and with all kinds of different settings for winamp and the directsound output plugin. I also tried adding plugin for plugin to the plugin folder to see if it would have any effect, but it didn't. It's solely the eq automatic processing function.

Another thing I came across when I systematically added the plugins back to the plugin folder, was that gen_ml.dll and in_cdda.dll both make winamp start up very slowly. (Checking "do not load media library at start-up" does not have any effect)

My specs:
- Winamp 5.11 clean install (I tried both lite and full)
- Pentium IV 2.4GHz, 512MB RAM and a Asus P4S8X mobo
- Windows XP Home SP2
- Asus GeForce MX 440 64MB video card, driver: nv4_disp.dll, version 6.14.0010.4403
- C-Media CMI8738 sound card, driver: cmaudio.sys, version 5.12.0001.0643
- DirectX 9.0c

I hope this is all I need to let you know.

-Winamp 5.11 - clean install
-System specs: ABIT KX7, AMD Athlon XP 2100+, 512 MiB DDR)
-Windows XP, SP2
-Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900, ForceWare
-Sound Card: Creative Audigy
-DirectX version: 9.0c

Open 2 or more songs in Winamp. Remove all songs from playlist. Press "Next Track".

Winamp will now stop responding.

Pressing "Previous Track" doesn't cause this problem.

This happened both in Winamp 5.1 and 5.11

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Nope. I can't reproduce this. Anyone else?

Reproduced on a clean install
1. Using classic skin, Repeat Off, Shuffle Off
2. While playing a file delete playlist
3. press next track
Winamp crashes with error message (WinXP) posted by UJ

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Let us know if it still happens with 5.111, because I still can't reproduce it.

[Edit #2]
Benski says he reproduced and fixed it. Heh.

[Edit #3 > JonnyMac] Just confirming the empty playlist bug has been fixed in WA 5.111 | In other words, I could not reproduce it

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

Crash on 'Next' when playing AVIs (similar to UJ)

tried with overwrite and clean installs of 5.11
MSI K7N2 Delta/XP 2500+/1GB Corsair DDR/Radeon9200SE-T 128
On board nVidia nForce2 sound AND SB Live! 5.1
(no conflicts, all up to date drivers)
WinXP Pro SP2
DirectX 9.0c

Reproduction: (classic mode, default skin)
1. In the playlist window, press INS to access "load directory"
2. Load directory with AVIs. (I used FMA collection)
3. Play a file. (Random and Repeat are irrelevant here)
4. Press NEXT to play next file in playlist.

At this point I got an error message, even after several attempts and trying to tweak my settings. None of the changes I made resolved the issue. Reverting to the 5.10 core did solve my problem though, so I can be quite sure its not a 3rd party plug-in issue (plugins on or off, installed and not installed, made no difference).

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Known 5.11-specific bugs
Are you using autoload EQ presets / is the Auto button "on" in the EQ?
