I can also confirm that the latest update has essentially broken playback using Winamp on my phone.

When I first upgraded it couldn't play anything at all, as others have experienced, but once i reinstalled it will play files except continuously stuttering making listening impossible.

Very broken

Since the upgrade it only plays ever other song. In fact, so dedicated is it to this idea that if it gets to the second to last song on a play list it will then jump ahead to the first essentially putting the list on repeat. The fact that a media player can't play songs back in order is crazy especially after I spent money to upgrade to Pro.

WiFi sync only works in one direction, from the mac to the android, but not from the android to the mac like it does on a pc. I want to sync my phone to my mac, not my mac to my phone. Also, winamp will not id the android if the charge cable is plugged into the phone. Add a menu item that says "Find phone" that forces winamp to look for a wireless connection. I want to "Know" it's looking for my phone rather than wondering why nothing is happening. Wireless sync on a pc is pretty tight, just implement that on the mac version.

The re-install fixed winamp not working at all, but now it is suffering from the stuttering others have described.
It plays the first track fine, then the second one is played in 1.5 second increments with 1.5 second pauses.
Not good at all.

Upgraded to 1.2.1, unfortunately no change in the button control behavior, I need to open winamp before it will take control of the headphone buttons. I've also noticed that if I stop it for longer than a few minutes it will "lose" the place it paused in, and restart at the beginning of the song (which isn't fun when you listen to 40+ minute DJ sets ), and of course it loses control of the headphone buttons as well..

I hope this will get addressed in 1.2.2

Thumbs down New "fixed" upgrade not working.

I concur with previous statement about the 1.5 second pause then 1.5 seconds of music repeated. Same issue on my LG Optimus S. Makes the app completely useless. I've been an avid winamp user for years. Very disappointed. I just went back to 1.1.1 For you that want to do the same here's a link: http://www.freewarelovers.com/androi...namp_1.1.1.apk

Please fix this soon so I can upgrade to pro.

Can someone tell me on what location Winamp for Android v1.2.2 is installed on an android phone? I would like to clean up all traces of the app before I reinstall it for the 8th time. Thanks.

Angry shoutcast not working

Hi, Im running the latest winamp update on my HTC Desire Z with Android. Since the update, none of my saved shoutcasts are working - says "failed to play requested stream".. same issue as this one below..

Needed to edit because no shoutcast streams are working for me, just says "failed to play the requested stream" on all of the streams that I tried.

FYI I downloaded this from the market about 15 minutes ago so I assume it is the latest versions, think it said 1.1.1. Installed on my Archos 43it "tablet" running the latest firmware, Android 2.2.x)

My system has just been updated to 1.2.2 and it is also stuttering in the same way as 1.2.1
Could I suggest rolling back and/or suspending the application in the market place because this is a fundamental issue and you will be receiving bad reviews from it until it is fixed.

1.2.2 is here, and the same problems remain.

It's almost like winamp gets shut down if it's paused for more than a few minutes, the headphone buttons no longer control winamp, and it restarts songs at beginning instead of where they were paused..

1.1.x worked so well, I'm now back using the default android player because it doesn't have any of these problems.

Very disappointed that Bluetooth controls were largely broken with v1.2.x. How do I downgraded and get my $4.99 back for the pro version. This upgrade was Big step BACK.

2) While listening to music, when a text or email is received, the song cuts out to play the notification sound. Other apps, like CardioTrainer, allow the notification sound to play on top of the song (the song is just dampened a little). That would also be a great feature.

On a great note, I am so very happy that Winamp will play right after a call has ended. For some reason, the Android music player and other music apps do not do that any more. Great work!

I look forward to the finished product!
Ditto to the crossfade suggestion... been looking at Android as a O/S for simple radio automation... Any thoughts in this regards?

Today I found further information regarding the stuttering music. It didn’t give me 20 minutes of good music today, The difference between when it did and didn’t was turning on Random. With Random off I got 20 minutes before it went bad. With Random on, it fails on the second track.

I posted my findings in a different thread, but it looks like this is the main thread for "user testing". For me - it has to do with the text scrolling back and forth of the song title. If I have my phone landscape mode, I get normal playback. If I turn my phone profile, the playback stutters every time the text scrolling changes direction. As soon as I turn off the screen, the stuttering happens all the time.

I'll try the random / shuffle mode, and see if that makes a difference.

are there plans to make flac detectable by winamp? browsing through folders to listen to my music is getting really irritating not to mention i can't scrobble this way. plus the fact that when i choose a song from an album it adds all the songs to the queue but SHUFFLES them. i can't even just listen to an album from start to finish without having to go through and manually sorting it. please fix this. i beg of thee

Well 1.2.4 still hasn’t fixed the playback failure, it has changed it. On random it played successfully for 15 to 20 minutes, then started distorting, and stuttering. The distorting is new but it is still broken.

The good news.
It looks like 1.2.5 has corrected all of the stuttering and distorting issues. I ran it on Random for several hours yesterday with 2 one hour blocks and it ran without issue.

I seem to be having this issue now... Sometimes the app just stops playing music.
Winamp PRO 1.2.5
Samsung Galaxy G2, Model GT-I9100
Android version 2.3.5
Most songs stored on external SD Card, but this effects songs on the handset too.

Sometimes randomly through the day, or often after a song is paused, the app will stop playing. Pressing the play/pause key will switch the icon, but the app doesn't start playing and the progress bar doesn't move. Skipping to a new song doesn't help - the progress bar stays on 00:00 and nothing happens.

Like you, the only way to fix it is to restart the phone.

I have an issue:

It doesn't play music. One could say this is a pretty big issue.
I pick a song but the bar (that shows where you are in the song) doesn't move. I have tried to pause/unpause and move it around the song, as well as trying several songs.
I have also tried to restart my phone.

I also tried the stock music player and that works just fine.

EDIT:

I just re-installed it and now it works.

EDITEDIT:

Ok, the problem is still there. I just tried to play songs from an album and nothing would play. Then I went to another album, played a song and went to the first album whilst that was playing, and now it worked.
Additional information:
* Uninstalling and re-downloading does not help - the issue is still there
* You can trigger the bug 80% of the time by pausing a song and then skipping a song

I'm also having the same issue with 1.2.5 where Winamp just stops playing. For me it's easily reproducible by just switching from one album to the next. Start playing an album, it's OK ... pause the playback, go back to the "home" screen and select another artist/album and press 'play'. Says it's playing but no sound and no progress. You can press the pause/play and it changes the icon, but nothing really happens. The only way to re-start it is to 'kill' the app with the Task Manager.

This is on a Samsung Galaxy S II on Sprint (aka Epic Touch 4G). Hoping for a fix soon.

Thanks,

Rob

Killing with the task manager is lot less annoying than rebooting the phone!

That wasn't working for me because I was trying to exit winamp, so it wasn't in the task manager to kill! So, switch tasks and kill the winamp task DOES restore service.

probably caused if folders or song files are deleted, so winamp media library revolts.
Meanwhile I reset winamp data in the system app mgmt feature. So winamp is working again for the price of losing created playlists and equalizer settings ..

Disappointed in v1.2.8

I believe that v1.2.8 does now resume where a song leaves off when stopped but still is not the default player for my Bluetooth car stereo (Sony MEX-BT2600) when I start the music from its controls.

As long as we had to wait for this release I thought for sure this issue would have been resolved. So to say the least I'm disappointed. Prior to v1.2.x it worked. Oh well back to v1.1.1 (thanks for keeping this available).

My questions are:
  1. Was this to be resolved with this release?
  2. Can we have a list of fixes being worked on for 1.2.9 and is this on the list?

good question!

i think it would be a really good idea for the devs to list known issues, and also indicate what priority those issues are being worked on, (one assumes all known issues are on the agenda), and what issues are meant to be resolved by what version. all this is done in winamp proper. (what ver history there is, is hard to read on the app)

i think users should be allowed to vote on known issues and influence the priority that way as well.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks

Wins and Losses. We have both
In December Last year I uninstalled winamp because the issues with it stopping play and stuttering were making it unusable as a music playing product. 2 weeks ago I thought I’d give it another run and installed 1.2.12.
I note that media button controls are able to pause and restart winamp (In this case simulated by Tasker scripts) So that is a big Win!!!
On the downside it is now regularly dropping the playlist while playing back. So after half an hour or so of play it just stops.
Now I don’t want to go back to my standard phone app because the random on it is Garbage, and winamp actually performs random properly. Add to this the 1X4 widget and you are on a winner (even if the lock screen is a bit clunky)
But non of this has any value if you can’t get the basic functionality of Load and reliably play music sorted.
I for one will purchase the Premium product when I can trust it will play. Please get this basic functionality sorted out.

Yes, PLEASE stop breaking bluetooth support with every major release...

We need:
- bluetooth controls that work when winamp is not front-most application.
- bluetooth streaming music that when re-connected, resumes playback from where it stopped when it got disconnected from the BT device.
- bluetooth controls that start winamp when the bt connection is (re-)connected, instead of the HTC-rom-based-so-i-can-not-remove music player.
- bluetooth controls that work when winamp is moved onto the SD card.
- winamp music that automatically mutes when google maps speaks (driving instructions).
- winamp music that automatically resumes playback after google maps spoken instructions are finished.
- winamp music that automatically mutes when a phone call is started.
- winamp music that automatically resumes when a phone call is ended.
- Separate volume controls for winamp music and Google maps voice.

I second that emotion... All the above would be very good and some even needed!

My winamp crashes all the time right now, I think its because my playque/playlist is to big.
Since I cant even start it now, it remembers last playlist/que.... So one wish more could be..

Crash discovery that gives the option to reset the playque/list or something like that.

Tagging/metadata

Please explain why I need to purchase and use a separate app on my Nexus 7 tablet to replace the metadata already in my FLACs that are not transferred from my PC to my tablet. I have already meticulously tagged all my files with Artist, Album, Title, Track, Genre and Year.
