Hmm now I got it. It's some kind of hidden class. The problem is that this program which controls Winamp identitifies the focused window by class and sends to it the messages binded to the remote control's keys in it's script. I use the program for several other applications this way. Thanx, I won't bother you any more now

As far as I know, there's a hold up inside AOL again. The player has been release-quality for months now, it's a real shame. My information is accurate.

I hope another RC gets released, just to show how good the thing is now.

well, sadly enough this turns out on the day of release all the time. a kind of warning would be highly appreciated.

but if they delay the release until after x-mas their MP4 support can be included eventually. then they don't have to write the planned converter (that converts the idv2 tagged aac stream into an itunes tagged MP4 file).

just saw will's new sig.

the countdown changed into:

"hrmph."


I can feel, what he wants us to tell. so the delay is semi official I guess. Maybe I can grab a new RC to ease my pain.

I didn't know that my own sig was so winamp related.

Heh, if I had a warning, I'd pass it on. As much as people think otherwise, 90% of the information us moderators get gets passed on to you.

If it gets delayed, do you know if we'll get another RC at least?

Sonique 2 will reach beta status this month. From what I see, rc8 is EXTREMELY close to final, and since the final release was scheduled for tomorrow, I'm pretty sure the final version is complete.

IMHO, they should release it already, and give them even less of a chance

Sonique 2 is CRAP. I d/led it last night and it really sucks the llamas nutz. I know it's still beta but holy hell does it blow, and they've had what? two years to work on it?

at this point (after discovering global hotkeys, now my Dell keyboard works) I am uber-happy with rc8. what? you say it's not perfect yet? fooled me.

Actually, it's alpha. It'll reach beta status this month (not that it's gonna get better than winamp, I'm not justifying its suckiness :P )

you're right rocky. but still, I had sonique 1.96 for a while and it was just as slow and fat as winamp3. looked REAL nice tho, it had the one feature I wanted in winamp and it's now there...the attached vis screen...still not a good enough reason for me to switch.(not to mention that you have to REGISTER to download v1.96...evil, evil spammers)

i find that sonique has a greater sound quality off a fresh install and i like the vis and interface better, but it lacks features, which is why i switched to winamp when sonique lost all of or most of its entire dev team due to being bought by lycos. (or something i dont know the whole story).
The latest alpha builds arent that bad, for alpha, but they arent good for every day use and i find that build releases are so infrequent that sometimes i wonder if the project is entierly dead.

winamp 5 for life though...unless somehow it gets seriously fucked up.

I noticed a glitch with the modern skin when it is docked at the bottom of the screen in windowshade mode. The classic skins will snap upward when you double click on the main window or playlist. The modern skin will expand downward and off the screen. Is there a way to configure Winamp 5 to make the windows snap upward?

Terralycos shreaded the sonique team and replaced it with one guy. That was like two years ago or something. I was so looking forward to this thread being locked and a Winamp5.0 Final link at the end of it.

This is completely incorrect. There is no scheduled release date. Again.

sookie0, if you consider to spread such misleading information, we may have to do something about it.
