no sound

Im new to winamp, ex itunes user. My PC is a windows 10 and phones / tablets are androids. searching around, winamp was best bet. installed it today on PC, latest version .ponted it at my music file, no problem. made a playlist. Ready to rock!!! click play button ... no music .... nothing but a message "restart playback". rightclick a song on the playlist, it picks it up and names it in the playbox but does not play.

what format is the song? does it have DRM? what output plugin are you using?

Current Setup: Windows 10 Pro, Sound Blaster Z, Logitech Z-5500, Winamp v5.666.3516

I think 5.8 hasn't support for this type of AAC/M4A files from apple (i don't know the type). There was full-support in Nullsoft-AOL releases

I think it is a 5.8 thing (codecs), as you said " installed it today on PC, latest version".

Also, can you check the output settings? I remember Directsound having issues.

If not, you can install 5.666 which has the proper decoders for AAC/M4A
