WV files not working with Winamp 5.57

When I try to play any wv audio file, Winamp 5.57 instantly crashes. Previous version worked OK. I tried clean install and latest Winamp Essentials (which includes wv decoder) but the issue is still present. Tested on two different PC's with Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Can anyone confirm this?

Cannot reproduce. WavPack files are playing fine with Winamp 5.57 + Essentials Pack 5.57 on Windows 7 (32 Bit)

Could you try playing this song then?

Song

Plays fine for me in MPC-HC, WMP and Winamp 5.56, but doesn't play in Winamp 5.57 (crashes).

I cannot download the file, says only for premium members.

Can you upload it to sendspace.com or another hosting service?

Crashes here too, but my files all play fine.

You should post this in the WavPack forum:

EDIT: According to WavPack forum the issue is caused by genre tag. Now I'll just wait for some fix

I'm not exactly sure if this is a winamp bug or a bug in my plugin, but here is a plugin that seems to fix the problem for now:

http://www.wavpack.com/WavPack_Plugi...namp_v2_8a.exe

Thanks again for reporting, and please let me know if there's any more trouble.

David

edit: trying to get plugin link to work...I guess I'm not allowed, but it's posted on the HA thread referenced above

It was a bug in/conflict with ml_history.dll causing the problem
(wrong character count being passed to getFileInfo for "genre" and "ispodcast")

ml_history bug is fixed in 5.571
so even the previous version of the WavPack plugin should work ok with it now.
