Please check these first before posting a new thread.

In the unlikely event that these links don't provide you with your answer:
When posting a new topic, please try to be as clear as possible.
The more precise & detailed info you can give, the better!
Unobvious spelling mistakes and bad phrasing do not help!
It also helps if the title of the topic is relevant to the problem.
Please include any relevant system specifications, especially if
your problem is more Windows related rather than a Winamp one, eg.
CPU + speed | RAM | Motherboard | Windows OS | Soundcard | Videocard
Browser + version | Internet Connection type + speed | DirectX version | etc.
Also provide details of any third party Winamp plugins you are using.

RE: Skipping / freezing / distortion, clicking & popping during playback

1) Winamp 5.x users, see here first:
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....26#post1212926

2) Winamp 2.8x users, install this official update patch: Winamp 2.8x Update
(Includes latest waveOut and DirectSound Outputs, plus selected Input plugins)

- watch this space for further developments

For 2.8x freeze-up issues, see here and here

Important: wa2update patch is obsolete under Winamp 2.90
2.9x users should NOT install the wa2update patch.


Main solution: upgrade to Winamp 5.x
Even by just installing the Lite version, you will then have the equivalent latest version of Winamp 2.x


3) If the skipping problems persist:

If none of the above are of any help, then please try the search facility before posting a new thread.
It's still quite possible that your question has already been asked & answered before.

Examples of some of the more popular search keywords:
MMSYSTEM032; MMYSTEM002; MMSYSTEM004; Invalid page fault; kernel32.dll;
msvcrt.dll; Playlist size/resizing (pe_width / pe_height); Line-in commands; etc.

And remember . . . always read the FAQ first !

You also now have the further options of checking out each individual forum's "Read This First" section; and you can also visit the "Tech Support's Greatest Hits" forum for even more FAQ's.

Also, please only post your question in one of the forums, preferably
the one that you feel is the most relevant. Posting in more than one
forum is what we refer to as crossposting and is not cool whatsoever !
If no-one has answered your question after a few days and your thread
disappears off the first page, simply post a reply in the same thread
to bring it back to the top again. A simple "Please help, anyone ?"
will suffice, unless you can add any more info to help us further.
