Winamp 5.8 suddenly stopped playing mp3

Hi, how are you?

I have Winamp 5.8 installed for a while and never had any issue playing any of my mp3s.

All of a sudden, I opened Winamp yesterday, tried to play a song and it didn't start. The play icon appears and the equalizer has bars moving (not when like playing a music, but when something wrong happens).

I uninstalled and deleted all archives and folders, rebooted, then installed again... Same problem. I repeated 2 times and didn't work. Same problem as mentioned before.

Please, someone could tell me why this happened? I am old school and love Winamp, I don't want any other player here (lol).

Windows 10 Pro
Winamp 5.8 (Modern skin)

P.S.: Sorry for my english, it's not my native language.

It was selected "01: Primary audio driver" in "Nullsoft DirectSound Output v2.70". I just selected "02: Headphones" (I have a cable that is connected in my stereo system, maybe he consider headphone because is the same output) and it worked.

P.S.: What I don't understand is why this was changed. Maybe it's because I previously deleted one of Windows outputs and messed up the Winamp configuration somehow. VLC and the others, for instance, were working normally.

Anyway, thanks for the help!
