JTF

Winamp 5.04 - clean install
P4 2.4 GHz, 512mb RAM
Win XP SP1
NVIDIA GeForce4 420GO
SoundMax Digital Audio
DirectX 9.0b

Winamp Prefs -> Jump To File -> "Keep JTF Dialog Open when using"
- uncheck "enter key"

now, while playlist is loaded, press J to bring up JTF, and type a partial name to bring the file below, press SHIFT+ENTER (to enqueue).

JTF box goes away, but file is NOT enqueued.

If "enter key" is checked, then the file gets enqueued, but the box stays open...

[Edit --> DrO]
Known and confirmed bug from here. new build (0.96arv) will be up soon(ish)

ogg vorbis seek crash

I have reproduced this using a fresh install of the 5.04 full version of winamp on both my computers. Both are AMD with WindowsXP professional and SP1 and all updates, one duron and other XP, one on a abit kt7a mobo other on a asus board with nforce2 chipset. Common to both is Nvidia gfx cards, one has a geforce1 and other geforce4, different sound cards in each and latest dx version in both.

The bug is when seeking on _some_ ogg vorbis files the computer instantly locks up and no mouse or keyboard activity gets through and only option is for the reset button. The ogg files that cause this crash are ones I made with vorbis tools 1.0.1 using oggenc and then vcut on the ogg file, file size was approx 222Megs after cutting.

Normally I would test more to see if vcut modifies the file and thats what crashes winamp, or if its just the fact that the file is too large for wiamp, but the crash is so servere that I am concerned about data loss if I keep locking up my PC's.

This bug doesn't exist in the 2.x versions of winamp which I still prefer owing to their tiny impact on system resources.

Hope this helps,

Cluster.

* Oh and the seek must be done using the left or right arrow keys.

can't seek in vbri mp3 files

I encode my files via SoundForge 6 at VBR. It creates VBRI files, but when the song is longer i can't seek in it. If i put slider almost at the end winamp seeks to 1st minute of song and continue playing even time and slider shows end of song. This do all versions of winamp, but some other appz (deejaysystem - using xaudio) seeks ok...


system specs>
Winamp 5.04 - clean install
ASUS TUSL2-C, 1,2 GHz Celeron, 512 MB RAM
WIN XP SP1a
SoundBlaster 1024
DX 9.0b


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
This is an old old issue.
FhG vbri headers are proprietry/buggy/rarely supported.
Try vbrfix. Though my advice is that you use LameEnc to encode mp3.
Also, if you could zip up, upload and provide a link to one of these mp3's, it might help...

'Always on top' not always working anymore in 5.04

Set modern skin to winshade mode and set 'Always on top' and it's fine.

Come back to it a bit later and I click on another window and it vanishes. If I reset the option it stays on top again. Weirdness.


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
If you're using any fullscreen apps inbetween,
uncheck "disable aot while fullscreen apps are in focus"
(Prefs > General Preferences)

OK I did that and it fixes some apps from vanishing behind another window (Like if you open the log window in Outpost firewall 2.0 the log window stays behind the first window when that option is checked. Unchecked it's fine.

HOWEVER.

When I select a plugin in Winamp and configure it the plugin configuration window remains BEHIND the main Winamp prefs window! No matter if that option is checked or not. I have to turn 'Always on top' OFF! for me to get to the plugin configuration window

You've been screwing with the way 'Always on top' works since that last version haven't you?

It's BROKEN!

EDIT: OK it's not so broken as I thought. Seems I just picked the only plugin that refuses to come to the front from behind the main prefs window when 'Always on top' is enabled. It's the Logitech keyboard plugin.

Sorry about that. I should have checked the other plugins before going ape


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Yeah, I can't reproduce the problem with any of the default plugin configuration windows, and there's nothing we can do about 3rd-party plugins here. I also can't reproduce any reported issues with aot. Everything seems to be working fine here.
Reminder: only reproducable bugs with a clean installation (and NO 3rd-party plugins) are valid.

EQ bug

I have noticed this bug, but I can't reproduce sorry, I post anyway 'cause someone else can reproduce!

Winamp 5.04
WinXP Pro SP1+All Patches
Athlon 800 on a KT133 MB


I've noticed that some bar level in the Equalizer was not in the correct position so I put the mouse on it and the level change without pushing any button!
So I've started moving (without pushing) the mouse all around the bar levels in the equalizer and all bars change randomly and also the sound change of course!

Sorry it's all that I know, closing and reopening winamp cause stop this bug!

bye

Nope. Alas, you are wrong. This cannot be reproduced with a clean install of 5.04 with NO 3rd-party plugins/skins.
In fact, it can't be reproduced even without a clean install... :/

Hello,

I don't know if someone has the same problem here but when i set my winamp (5.04 and older versions) on pause my memory is dropping quickly. What could be the problem here?

Computer:

Athlon 2000+
512mb pc2100
80gb 7200
SB Live 5.1
Windows XP Buld 2600

To reproduce...
Open Task Manager
play any WMA file in Winamp,
hit Pause
and watch winamp.exe memory usage rise and rise.

Note: memory is actually released when file is unpaused.


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Confirmed & reproduced :(
This in_wm.dll bug was fixed in 2.9x or earlier, but seems to have resurfaced...

Using winamp 5.04, fresh install.
My system:
Athlon XP 2500+ (1830MHz)
MSI nForce2 Ultra mobo
Realtek AC97 onboard sound
Windows XP SP2
DirectX 9.0c

Two things:
(edit: the first one has already been reported, sorry about that.)
1. Always on top (will be referred to as AOT) mode is messed up. I'm using the modern skin in winshade at the top of my screen with the playlist in winshade as well to the left of it. With AOT set, one of the modules will periodically act as if AOT was off and will go behind any windows open, while the other module will act normally. It is easily fixed by turning AOT off then on again, but it's just annoying.

2. I have a large library of files, and the winamp library seems to screw some files up. Before I go on, I want to say that they are all perfectly tagged, as I'm anal about that sort of thing. A good portion of the songs will show up with the folder name as the album name, or the song title will be cut in half due to a '-' being part of it. I see what's happening: winamp is trying to use the filename/foldername to figure out the song info. The only problem I see with this is that the files are tagged perfectly. What I mean by perfectly is that they all have the artist/album/title/track information entered, so winamp shouldn't need to try and figure out the file info. Winamp itself verifies this, when I click "view file info" on the file in question, it even shows the file fully tagged, both ID3v1 and ID3v2.

Both things are quite annoying. I just thought I'd bring them to your attention.
[Edit --> DJ Egg]
I can't reproduce either of these.
2. Remove/disable the 3rd-party in_mp3pro plugin (at a guess)???

Winamp: 2.x-5.x
Os, system, sound, video... doesn't matter

in_mp3.dll destroys some characters in unicode id3v2 tags.
this bug is in function, that converts unicode string to ansi.

sample mp3 with unicode id3v2 tag (236 bytes zip archive)
this mp3 consist string "ŠăŦăŇįČ" (windows WideCharToMultiByte function converts it to "SaTaNiC") in title tag.

i have patch for in_mp3.dll, that replaces unicode2ansi and ansi2unicode functions with others, which uses WideCharToMultiByte and MultiByteToWideChar (3310 bytes)


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Winamp is NOT a unicode program.
So hey, where's this patch then? Maybe you could attach it to a new post?

See this Media Library BUGs.

P.S. Sorry, but I can't speak English. I can only read


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
No, these are NOT bugs.
Your files do not have any id3 tags
so the library is guessing from the folder/filename structure instead.
You can disable this by:
1) selecting "no guessing" (Prefs > Media Library > Watch Folders tab > "Configure" button), or
2) tagging your files properly before importing them.
Note: a hyphen (-) is seen as a field-separator by the metadata guessing feature.
Post in Tech Support if you require further help.

Notify BUG...
Filename: Brooklin%20Bounce%20-%20Bass,%20Beats%20and%20Melody%20(Video%20edit).mp3

P.S. Playlist Editor BUG

1. Load Winamp
2. Select Playlist Editor
3. Select any Track(s) and press "Q" (Jump To File/enqueue selected)
4. Press "B" (next track).

Always play the same track.

[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Re: JTF
No, that is expected behaviour.
If you queue a track, then track [1] in the queue will always play next...
until you hit B again, then the next item in the playlist or queue will play.

forgot important thing (well i did not know it, my fault) - this happens only when there is a high number of mp3 files from ONE DIRECTORY (without subdirectories) in playlist...
try to copy lets say 150 files into one directory, add folder into clean playlist, turn winamp off and then run it again


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
I wasn't lying when I said:
'I can't reproduce this, post in Tech Support instead'.
Take a look at the 106th file, or test the dir with mp3utility.
One of the filenames/files is incompatible/corrupt.

New Shuffle+Loop Bug?

Okay, this has been bothering a few friends of mine lately and myself. I have experimented this bug and reproduced it on all versions of 5.0X.

My System:
1GB Corsair XMS Low Latency CAS2
AMD Athlon XP 2500+ (stock)
1152x864 on ATI Radeon 9500 Pro 128MB DDR
Maxtor 200GB 7200RPM
Abit NF7-S Rev 2.0
Thermaltake Butterfly 480W PSU
Artec 52x24x52 CD-RW
Windows XP PRO SP1
Water-Cooled.
Using onboard audio SoundStorm by nVIDIA.

CURRENT Winamp Version: 5.04

Do this in WINAMP OFFICAL MODERN SKINS ONLY. Bug does NOT exist in classic skin.(Have not tested in custom-made skins).

1.) Load Modern skin on default blue.
2.) Go to prefs and enable manual playlist advance.
3.) Add a song (or a few).
4.) Enable the shuffle mode (Shuffle morph rate on max). Disable the repeat mode.
5.) Play the song (either doubleclick or play button).
6.) At the end of the song, it will stop, or if you have multiple songs it will advance to the next song.
7.) Check the prefs. The "Manual Playlist Advance" feature has been unchecked.

In the prefs, Manual playlist advance says if it is check marked, and repeat is off, it will STOP after a single track is played. If repeat is on, it will repeat a single track infinitely. But the bug produces the error of automatic play & shuffle override of the manual advance play.


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Reproduced... kinda.
Probably because when you cycle through the 3-state repeat button, 'Repeat Track' turns MPA on, and when you turn 'Repeat' off, MPA is therefore also disabled.
Best bet would be to turn Repeat off BEFORE turning MPA on. :/

When using the Winamp3 look modern skin in compact mode Player - Equalizer - Playlist. If I expand the playlist, the equalizer will disappear behind the player (as shown in the attachment). This does not happen with version 5.03.

Clean Install of 5.04

768mb PC2700 RAM
128mb ATI 9600SE
SBLive Value Sound Card
Windows XP Pro with SP2 (did this under SP1)


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
Alas, this is the wrong place to report such issues.
The Winamp3 skin is not included with the default Winamp 5 distro, and is therefore not supported here.
Report any issues with it to Wildrose Wally/Mr Jones in the Modern Skins forum.

Media Library "CTRL +" column resize bug

When I perform key shortcut "CTRL +" in Media Library to resize the columns, all columns are resized propely except the Artist one; this must be resized manually afterwards. It happened in 5.03 as well...

BTW would it be possible to have "Auto Size Columns" feature in ML?

Regarding the "Always On Top" feature in relation to "Full Screen Applications" (that people claim is a bug)

Can you guys make it so that the Show Desktop function in Windows (ie. the little icon in Quick Launch) is not treated as a full screen application?

I don't want WinAmp to show up in my full screen applications, but I want to see WinAmp after I go to my desktop. I'm sure other users would feel the same way as well.

Thanks.

====

WinAmp 5.04 clean install.
Modern Skin

WinXP Pro SP1.
problem repeatable in Win2k.

Hardware should not affect it.

No special plug-ins installed.

Winamp is NOT a unicode program.
I know. And now in_mp3 uses something like this:

PHP Code:
void unicode2ansi(register char *destregister char *srcint length)
{
  if( (
src) && (dest) )
  {
    for( 
int i=; (i<length) && (dest[i]=*src) ; i++ , src+=);
  }

But it's more correct to use WideCharToMultiByte (and MultiByteToWideChar for ansi2unicode).

PHP Code:
void unicode2ansi(char *destunsigned short *srcint length)
{
  
WideCharToMultiByte(CP_ACP,0,src,length,dest,length,NULL,NULL);

file info dialog for ogg doesn't work

Hi,
i'm using winamp 5.04, german langpack v bn14 installed.

i have a playlist with an mp3 file and an ogg vorbis file. all data (artist, album, title) are displayed correctly in the playlist/ml/title scroller.
when i use ALT+3 on the mp3 file then the dialog pops up.
when i use ALT+3 on the OGG file then the dialog does NOT pop up at all (it does pop up in winamp 2.91 on the same file).

i switched back to english (us) lanpack and dialog opens for OGG.
i switched to german langpack again and dialog also opens.

regards


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
If it's an issue with the German langpack,
then there's nothing we can do about it here...
Though you might want to try this:
Prefs > Plugins > Input > in_vorbis > config:
Display tab: checkmark "non-blocking info editor windows"

Playlist failure (.m3u) on file with spaces in name

Posted as independent thread before seeing this process. Sorry.
Tried this on two different machines. one W2k SP4, other Win98. Clean install 5.04 Winamp. Played the same file location with other applications, even out of MS File Explorer in W2k. Greater than 512mb memory in all machines, Celeron processors. Used several different browsers, MSIE, Netcaptor, Firefox.
When accessing a playlist (.m3u) address Winamp does not convert the spaces in the .mp3 filename to %20 as in other applications such as Media Player. Therefore, the files are noted as "not found". If the URL play is used and the %20 is entered Winamp will play the file, if spaces are entered it will not play the file. The checkbox on the preferences to do this is checked!
Winamp should automatically convert such files. Example:
http://thedce.com/mediafiles/amazon/la beef, sleepy-boogie at the wayside lounge.mp3

Further Comments on wyfflemunky's tag display problem

I'm experiencing the same strangeness as wyfflemunky: winamp will "smart-read" tag information for files which are already properly tagged.

Winamp 5.04
Athlon 64 3200+ Windows XP

I notice that the files it tends to do this with are usually not mp3s: they're mpeg plus (mpc) or mp4, and they have APE v2.0 tags instead of id3v2.

What's additionally annoying is that when I try to update by "edit selected items (ctrl+e)"--which I assume edits the winamp library database, as opposed to "view file info (alt+3)", which edits the file tag directly--whatever changes I make are overwritten with the same incorrect information the next time the library is rescanned.

Third party plug-ins need to be updated to support the Media Library metadata reading and writing. Contact the authors of those plug-ins. Not a bug.

Winamp 5.04 Bugs:
___________________________________
CPU: Athlon 1Ghz
RAM: 256MB
Video: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 440
Audio: Integrated Via AC'97
OS: Win XP SP1
Winamp: 5.04 fresh install, without 3rd party plugins
___________________________________
First Bug: (Use the default modern skin)

1- Dock the playlist window in normal mode (not winshade)
2- Close winamp
3- Restart winamp

Bug!: The layer where the playlist content is shown doesn't initialize, thus the playlist is not shown. And in some cases, for example when playlist content is added via the 'Play with Winamp' shell extension, the playlist layer
doesn't show the actual and true content.
___________________________________
Second Bug: (Use the default modern skin)

1- Set scaling to anything less than 100% in the playlist
window in normal mode (not winshade)
2- Dock at the bottom the playlist window
3- Move the cursor to the very bottom of the screen an
remain here (do not move)

Bug!: The playlist appear and disappear constantly

Jeez, it's only 3 weeks old, and this thread is already a total mess.
To be honest, I feel like deleting it and starting again...
and we got off to such a good start with the first two posts,
but it's all gone downhill from there.

Reminders:

1. Unimplemented features are not bugs.

Adding support for parsing spaces in m3u playlists, adding unicode character support in dialogs, adding 'auto size columns', adding support for url's longer than 260 characters, etc etc etc . . . these are ALL feature requests, not bugs.

Yes, I know, it's a thin line sometimes between feature request and bug.

2. Any issues with 3rd-party plugins (musepack, mp3pro, flac, audiocoding in_mp4, etc etc) are none of our concern. Take up all issues with the plugin author.

3. Weird/forced bugs will always be very low priority, eg.
Open winamp, open & close the playlist window 5 times, run round the room naked singing the Hallelujah Chorus, hit Ctrl+Alt+Shift+L+O+Esc, jump up and down on the spot on one leg, then double click the titlebar and watch winamp disappear up its own backside... (ok, I'm exaggerating a bit, but you know what I mean!)

You are off base.

The request is not to add support for spaces. It is do what the preferences say it does, replace spaces with %20. It does not work. If you call that a feature you are playing with words. Make it work like it appears that it should or explain why not.

Don't fucking argue with me.
It's been like that for 7 years.
The feature already in Winamp is: "Show %20 as spaces in url's".
Your playlists have spaces, not %20. Url's aren't meant to have any spaces in them, regardless of how the wonderful WiMP handles them.
Automatically replacing spaces in url's in playlists with %20 is a feature request.
Post feature requests in the wishlist.

re. your rant.

Why not make this particular thread read only then. That way you can decide if something meets the definition of a bug

Bear in mind too that Winamp is used in a multitude of ways and what may seem contrived to you can be something that pops up all the time for other users.
The versatility of Winamp is often cited as one of it's selling points, so it follows that bug fixing is more than getting the program to work correctly if used in one specific way.

Well, if that's the case, then I suggest that someone else reports these so called bugs to the (currently non-existent) developers, because the last lot (Justin, Christophe, Francis, Brennan, Aus, Mig) would laugh at/ignore/rebuke me if I were to report any of these :/

I'm outta here. Good luck, and have fun!

I think you are a little pedant in those arguments.
And you always can and should be kind with your customers.

DJ Egg, do you really know nothing of the abilities (in
programming or anything else) of the pleople who write in
this forum, so yours insults is only a demostration of your ignorance.

WinAmp is the thing that is, in part, for the contributions of people who, desinteresedly contribute in how improve that great piece of software.

WTF WTF WTF WTF

Damn, I have to leave now, but I...
I first must state that DJ Egg is the ONLY regularly active mod in all winamp related forums!
If HE won't report bugs, NOBODY will (well, maybe dazog) and the bug reports forum will be a mess.
AND: you will keep having bugs in Winamp since no-one is reporting them.
And you just continue to make it a even bigger mess! (sebreid)

DJ Egg, please make a new thread, cuz this is just bs.
Oh, and remember: you are having a terrible DAY. Tomorrow everything will be fine.

[edit]
off course tommorow everything will NOT be fine, but hey, sometimes a bit of optimism can be good

oh and btw,
DJ Egg was referring to people who are posting non-reproducable third-party bullshit and stuff like that (i.e. people who are either stupid or are not reading stickies (or both))

besides: if you can code, that's fine, but a bug report is something else

If you're bored go here or, if the boredom is more serious, here.

@Casin

I couldn't understand your first post
and no-one else could in #winamptech or #nullsoft irc channels...
so therefore we couldn't even begin to try reproduce your report.

However, your 2nd post has made me come to the following decision:

Bug Reports are now closed until further notice.
This is for an indefinite period, until a time when development on Winamp 5.x restarts (ie. when a new dev team is hired, because currently there is none).

You can still post reports in the main body of the Bug Reports forum, and wait for someone else to come along and either:
a) confirm it
b) or, if it's a request for tech support or features, move it to the relevant forum
c) or, if it's jibberish, lock/delete it


Thus ends DJ Egg's 4 year stint of reporting valid bug reports and making sure that they've ALL been fixed.

So now you really are on your own :/


*whacked*

Fixed bugs / non-reproducable bugs / feature requests / useless posts / etc
split from sticky thread :/

All future such posts posted in there will also be moved here.

*** I've also posted this to 'POST ALL WINAMP 5.05 BUG REPORTS IN THIS THREAD'. Please delete it.. (Becuase I found it doesn't match the property of that thread)

BUG REPORT - WMA Decoder causes playback buffer problem..

Winamp Version : 5.01 ~ 5.05 (no additional patched)
Soundcard : SoundMax Digital Audio
OS : Windows XP Professional SP1
CPU : Intel M Processor (Centrino) 1.5 GHz
RAM : 512 MB
Used plugin : default installed plugins - DirectSound output v2.2.10 / Nullsoft WMA Plug-in v2.03(x86)
/ Nullsoft DirectShow Decoder v0.93
Setting of DirectSound output Buffer
Buffer length : 5365 ms
Prebuffer on start / seek / underrun : 978 ms
Buffer-ahead on track change : 408 ms

When my winamp plays a wma file, it makes some noises.
I've seen this bugs on all Winamp v5.x.
See the below please.

<< Abnormal Status - Mozart.wma >> -------------------------------

Output format: 22050 Hz, 16 bits per sample, 2 channels
Active buffer size: 5365 ms (473192 bytes)
Device: "ÁÖ »ç¿îµå µå¶óÀ̹ö"
Mixing: software, primary buffer: inactive

Buffer playback cursor: 78456 bytes
[===========#====================================================]
Buffer write cursor: 98376 bytes
[=============#==================================================]

Data buffered:
Total: 226 ms (19920 bytes) <- This value is continuously decreasing to about 200 ms. (before 5.05 version)
Async buffer: 0 ms (0 bytes)

Buffer locks done: 585
Underruns: 0
Time played: 1:42.824 (9069104 bytes)
Time written: 1:43.050 (9089024 bytes)
Total time played: 2w 18:16:15.441
Volume: 0.000000 dB / 0.000000 dB

------------------------------------------------------------------
Other files like mp3, asf, wav starts with about 5350 ms buffer,
but WMA files start with about 1000 ms buffer.
This symptom appears later if buffer length is increased in the settings window.
When buffer reaches about 200 ms, it began to sound disgustly like 'ppik! ... ppik!' while playing.
(But it doesn't always cause buffer underruns)

After I have just changed the extension of the SAME FILE, it works properly with DirectShow Input Plugin.
(I did this because I know the file format of ASF and WMA is equal.)

<< Normal Status - Mozart.asf >> -------------------------------

Output format: 22050 Hz, 16 bits per sample, 2 channels
Active buffer size: 5365 ms (473192 bytes)
Device: "ÁÖ »ç¿îµå µå¶óÀ̹ö"
Mixing: software, primary buffer: inactive

Buffer playback cursor: 235452 bytes
[================================#===============================]
Buffer write cursor: 223632 bytes
[==============================#=================================]

Data buffered:
Total: 5354 ms (472228 bytes)
Async buffer: 123 ms (10856 bytes)

Buffer locks done: 2182
Underruns: 0
Time played: 3:15.809 (17270364 bytes)
Time written: 3:21.163 (17742592 bytes)
Total time played: 2w 18:24:33.706
Volume: 0.000000 dB / 0.000000 dB

------------------------------------------------------------------

And, I found one more bug after writing this report. The copy button of DirectSound Plugin's Status tab
doesn't work properly when some data is in the clipboard. (Only works when clipboard is empty)

Please fix this!
(or, I have to change all my WMA files into ASF files!

problem in the media library

when adding songs to the media library, some songs listed in (no album) section, when they actually do have an album in their infos.
this problem was also at the previous versions of winamp 5.


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
We can't reproduce this :/
Remove any 3rd-party mp3 plugin (mp3pro, mad, etc)
