Winamp not playing EAC OGG files.

When I play an entire directory (or just one song) of .ogg files that I ripped with EAC and then encoded with the dos ogg vorbis encoder, it doesn't work. 2.81 plays them perfectly but 2.91 and 3 do not. This is the reason I do not use 2.91 or 3. Ogg files encoded on the fly with CDEX work fine. What's the deal?

Because EAC wasn't set up properly, you had it add ID3 tags. Adding ID3 tags to Ogg Vorbis files corrupts them. Remove all ID3 Tags from your Ogg Vorbis files.

You can strip ID3 tags using Tag and Tag Frontend

tag --remove --force ogg *.ogg

Oops, I suppose this answers my note in the other 'vorbis.dll doesn't work' topic.

However, why would you stop supporting this? Even if EAC has broken an .ogg by adding ID3, 2.81 played it just fine, why make 2.91 choke if evidently playing it back anyway works just fine? This kinda is why I liked winamp for a long time, it wasn't very fussy about what it played back and what it didn't..
