Sorry , Siebe 83. You are completely out of target.
The program doesn't work. Stop. That's all.
I think that we must be totally blind if we don't want to see that there are a lot of posts about the inability of the program to find and execute the online radios ( that completely, absolutely, perfectly run when we evocate them from the websites ).
When you suggest to read the post http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=243586
where we can read "Keep your fingers crossed, but don't hold your breath." that is more than an incertainity.
Not doubts about a full, clean installing action, no doubts about my pc and my software. No doubts about, I repeat, the clear situation that I can use winamp on a shoutcast website., but I can't tune any station by the winamp 5.21; meanwhile a did it every time I wanted by the release 5.13.
( and I'm not alone in this experience).
About France :
"Bon en attendant que la base de données sur Winamp.com refonctionne normalement pour mettre à jour le patch, la méthode est sauvage mais j'en ai marre d'attendre...
Voici un fichier Zip..à décompresser ici
Pas de révolution, juste deux radios de Europe2.
Pardon à ceux qui sont gênés par cette modification pas professionnelle mais le site Américain a quelques soucis en ce moment"
I hope that you speak french as well as I do, because they say:
" waiting that the data base ( not database) on winamp.com works AGAIN adequately, to bild up the patch, the method is wild, but we can't stand waiting. Here is a patch...
Not a revolution. Only two radios of Europe.
We beg the pardon of people who are bored by these not professional modifications., BUT THE AMERICAN SITE HAS SOME TROUBLES AT THIS MOMENT."
In my ( and I think not only for me) mind that means: we are able to watch and listen to nothing at all; here the rude patch for two European stations; the american developers are working to a more effective patch, as the program sucks.
Me too in my little environment do some little programs, for my business. Sometimes the application is ineffective, it doesn't run. I'm aware of my fault, of my imperfection, I don't deny a mistake.
I'm convinced that the release 5.21 is a mistake.
There are too many clues about that, in first position a lot of complaints about the problems of tuning that started from the date of release on this forum.
Do you want to deny that ?
I can't see the people who tell that the program is well working, certainly. I see only the complaints. But the forum in this section is full of them.
The history of internet is full of exemples like this. Of patch released after a crash ( f.i. do you remember the crashes after installation of ZA about a year ago ?)or not working programs, or bugs.
We are men, we can make some mistakes, little or giant.
I think that's better to face a problem than deny it.
Again I'm grateful to the programmers and developers for their work, but I can't agree with your opinion. As I described above.
