jnetlib.dll prevents in_mp3 & in_mod load

************EDIT PLEASE READ************
This problem was caused by a errant plugin that was left behind from Winamp 5.666. Replacing the jnetlib to the 5.8 version fixed the issue. I am so glad I am able to go back to the newest 5.8 version


1) Download jnetlib.dll from: https://mirr.re/d/b5g
2) Place file in Winamp main directory (/Winamp)

1) (Ensure "jnetlib.dll" is in Winamp main directory)
2) Launch Winamp
3) Try to play any MP3 file.
4) Go to options and observe that in_mod and in_mp3 are not loading
5) Try playing an MP3 file to confirm that in_mp3 is not loading.
6) Close Winamp
7) Remove jnetlib.dll
8) Re-launch Winamp and confirm it's working again

1) I honestly don't know what i've used jnetlib.dll in the past. I try to run a lean Winamp setup. I suspect it might have come from OPUS compatibility (ATTN Dr Egg?)
2) I have removed it from the main dir and all is working again, but this can't be expected behavior.

The input plugin "BogProg Support for Opus" does not use JNetLib. For some of the core Winamp Input plugins some use jnetlib for streaming online music (like from SHOUTcast or Icecast) or for playing music files from online resources. I also believe it's used for pulling cover art from online when the tags specify an online resource but I've never tested that so I'm not sure.

It's probably just an incompatibility with the older version of JNetLib and the input plugins were picking up the old JNetLib dll since it was in the root install directory. I wouldn't worry about it.
