Upgraded to 5.56 and Remote Media is missing

First of all I'd like to say I searched for this issue a LOT and didn't find anything which was surprising. Hopefully someone can help.

I just upgraded to Winamp 5.56 from an earlier 5.x version. It began crashing as I tried to access my remote media and doing other things in the library. So I uninstalled and reinstalled per the Clean Install Instructions. I installed with Standard settings first, then used Full settings. In both cases, now the Remote Media part of the Media Library is no longer there! I can no longer access my media remotely.

The enlarged picture here does not exist on my Wnamp:

Though this page says every version but Lite has "Remote Music and Video Playback and Sharing":

What gives?

If it matters, here are the errors I was getting when I first upgraded (before doing clean install) when the Remote Media item was still there...

The first two times I started it, the whole program crashed whenever I tried to log in to Winamp Remote and get at my songs on my computer at home. I am trying to log in through the Media Library tab of Winamp, Remote Media area. As soon as I hit enter after putting in my password, it would say Loading... for a couple seconds and then crash with a Windows Send Error Report dialog showing up. Then the third time I tried it, it said Loading... and actually started showing some of the page but then it stopped and the animated loading bar just keeps going but nothing happens. I pressed "log out", one of the few things visible and the little browser window went all gray. Then I clicked on Local Media on the left bar and Winamp crashed.

i haven't uninstalled and reinstalled clean, but i can confirm your issue. everytime i click on "audio" under "remote media" winamp crashes hard, every single time.

i'm not sure if i was using the right login info or not, but either way this is obviously no good.

i am using vista32 home ultimate. i reported this issue in the announce thread but you should prob make a bug report.

i also don't get "winamp charts" under "online services" even tho orgler says i am logged in.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

I have been pulling my last tufts of hair out over this.

Nothing seems to work. I would roll back to the previous version if I could find the setup file.

I have noticed that I am missing the ml_orb.dll in my media library plugins list.


While Remote Media does appear in the 5.56 version on another of my PCs, winamp crashes when I try to use it.
