Winamp crashes/closes after a while

I have a very annoying problem with Winamp that crashes/closes after a while, can vary between 1-2 days to a few hours only.

I use winamp + DSP for our web radio.
(I have installed the latest version of winamp on my computer running Windows 10.)

I am grateful for all the help that will solve this problem.
I've attached the latest crash-log.
Thank you in advance.

Any help here, please?
It seems that winamp and/or DSP is unstable?

If you're using the patched version of the latest winamp (Winamp 5.666 Build 3516 (5.6.6.3516)), then it's most likely the DSP plugin. Is it crashing when it's playing a specific file?

Also this might be better posted in the shoutcast forum if you're using it for shoutcast

Winamp crashes/closes after a while comment

You can also just install a pre-patched version of Winamp 5.666 (from http://getwinamp.com/#download) that includes the in_mp3 fix along with another plug-in crash fix as well as stripping out the things that just don't work any more.
That's a lot simpler than having to mess around with multiple installers and as the Winamp developer responsible for that last release it's a safe option to go with. LG C7

I am using the latest version of Winamp, 5.6.6.3516.
No, it does'nt seem to be related to any specific song/file.
It may sometimes take 2-3 days before winamp suddenly crashes.

I posted a crash log in my first post.
I'm really grateful for all your help with this.

My [latest version Winamp] also crashes on Windows 7; although sporadically. Something like every couple of days, but it varies- sometimes weeks pass by without a problem a sometimes I get a crash every day. And by crash I mean a freeze up when the songs keep playing and changing, but I have no longer control over Winamp [and all I can do is to close it via the Windows Task Manager]. And I also do not see any pattern, any catalyst

You didn't take a look at the profile
if you had you would have seen that there are posts from 2004 and 2005 and recent posts.

so just a fair warning , either play nice or don't play

in other words, you don't act like you are doing now.... comprende?

I'm not even sure what this thread is about anymore, but if u aren't using 5.8, it's not really possible to help you.

Creative cards seem to have issues. Try newest drivers. Try other output plugins. Try winamp's safe mode.

I have Soundblaster Z on Windows 10 64bit, and my winamp rarely if ever crashes, plus my winamp is open for days because it's always running if the computer on. I have a feeling it's something related to files trying to be played or some bad plugin. If you are watching videos, then it could be a bad video file, if not then it could be screwed up tags. There's too many variables.

I would try running winamp with NO 3rd party plugins, see if you still crash. If it still does then it's either a bad file or something is off in the system

Crashing happens only when playing internet radio, channel doesn't seem to matter. There is daily variation how often crash happens, today crashing was intense. Shortest playing time was 1 second, and several crashes after 1-5 minutes, then it might take 3-5 hours for next crash. I also noticed a crash after radio was on pause for like 30mins.

Different driver version doesn't help, there is only 3 versions for SBZ. There has been no other problems with anything sound related, and no other programs crashing without reason. Crashing started some months ago, it was rare at first, and steadily increasing all the time. Also crashing continued right after windows reinstall, like that format never happened.

Only 3rd party plugin I have used is streamripper, same version for years. Now i switched output plugin from directsound to waveout, and running 30 mins so far.

Have you tried removing the streamripper plugin temporarily just to test it out and see if it still crashes?

I used streamripper, and it's a great plugin, but no doubt it's known to cause crashes.
