Media Kibrary: AOL Video brings adds not the real Video

I've just started using Winamp and tested the different features. I can watch those AOL Music videos when selecting them via the Winamp webpage, but when using the media library (winamp music or AOL Video) and selecting the same video, I get an advertisement clip instead of the real video... Is there anything I can do about this - is this a bug or a feature?
Thanks in advance!

This is an AOL "non-feature". WinAmp is owned by AOL, this forum is owned by AOL, and Shoutcast is owned by AOL, therefore all AOL videos a owned by AOL. In other words, you are PWNED.

Make sure "manual playlist advance" isn't checkmarked in: Prefs > Playlist

Other than that, it usually suggests a problem with your Windows Media Codecs installation, since all the AOL & Winamp Music videos are in WMV format.


We'd need to know your Windows OS, Internet Explorer version, Windows Media Player version, and whether you allowed the Winamp installer to install the WM Codecs (assuming you didn't uncheck "Codecs and system libraries: Download and install (if required)" on Screen 6 of the installer options).

Another option is to (temporarily?) disable in_wm.dll (Winamp\Plugins folder) by eg. renaming it to in_wm.dll.off, which will then force Winamp to stream/play the NSV versions of the video streams instead, using in_nsv.dll (assuming you didn't uncheck NSV in the installer options). Also note that not all streams are available in NSV format.

Guessing form the first reply I didn't make myself fully clear: I don't mind getting an advertisement clip before watching the video, but I DO mind only getting the ad and no music video afterwards.
I checked, wether the playlist is set on "manual advance" but it's as it should be.
And - as said before - when stating the same video via the browser (www.winamp.com/videos/) everything is fine.
Any suggestion what goes wrong?
