Directsound output problems after Windows 10 1803 update

I'm having issues with sound playing choppy after the windows 10 1803 update. The problem seems to be the Nullsoft DirectSound Output 2.64 plugin. I tested with another output plugin
(OpenAL output) and it solved the problem. The only issue is that it doesn't support 24bit output.

I found a workaround to this issue. The Nullsoft DirectSound Output 2.64 plugin works well if I have VLC open. As soon as I close VLC the sound gets choppy immediately. Is there a fix or is another output plugin available that fixes this and supports 24bit?

Windows 10 update issue, as you know the Winamp development is almost zero at the moment.
Only way around this is system restore to before the update.

I also had problems once I had updated to Windows 10 update 1803,
but my problem was with Shoutcast buffering.

Don't know if it helps but you can view my thread and remedy here:


Please note: the fix was specific to my DELL E6400 laptop,
so may not work for other machines. But it may help pinpoint where the
problem could be, the Intel rapid storage driver.
