Hi.

There is a bug in Jump To File Extra v1.2.6 (Build 1165) [gen_jumpex.dll] plugin.

Here is how to re-produce it:

Install Lite version of Winamp 5.64 (latest version) without any additional plugins. (CLEAN install, also removed %APPDATA%\Winamp folder to ensure its not settings thing).

Set up Enqueue & Play as the default action for winamp so when you dbl click on the file it gets queued right after the currently playing file.

Also set up to scan tags in the background (Title->Read Metadata in the background when files are loaded or viewed ... ).

The bug is random and can occur randomly.

Sometimes it even occurs If after crash I try to play the same file by dbl clicking (so it should be just put into the queue).

I have crashdumps activated in the Windows 7 SP1, so here is a crashdump for Winamp:

http://www.mediafire.com/?p89u05t4h4r563b

Let me know if you need any more info.

Thanks.

i've loaded the dump file but i'm struggling to get it to load the debug files i've got for that version of the gen_jumpex.dll so may need to give you a specific version to try out. will follow-up based on what i can sort out with the debug files or get you to try out a specific version.

sorry I thought I'd replied to this, the build aminifu mentions will give me a more usable crash dump if the issue happens again (the prior build had it enabled but not in the way needed to make the crash dump usable).

Hi,

I have an annoying problem with Nullsoft Notification Area Control v2.44 [gen_tray.dll]. It's been going on at least since Winamp version 5.63, probably even further back. I have a few MP3 streams in my playlist and if I use the plugin back button to go from one stream to the previous Winamp hangs. If I use the back button on the application it works fine. If I try to go to a stream that refuses connection Winamp goes back to the stream that was played no problem. Next button works fine. The only non-standard plugins I have are SRS WOW! DSP (yes, very old, but still works well) and VQF input plugin version 0.91.

Oh, I read through both http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=161361 and http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=156839, but did not try a clean install.

Hi MrSinatra, as I wrote I did this with 5.63. Now I'm on 5.65, I removed all except these plugins: gen_ff.dll, gen_tray.dll, in_dshow.dll, in_mp3.dll, out_ds.dll and read_file.dll and reproduced the problem. I tried safe mode as well, same thing. I'm using the Modern Skin skin.

is purely a bug in gen_tray.dll due to it effectively double-pumping the play message which causes the lock-up (just shows how often people use it since it's been doing that since ~2007/8 when i last did it's main update).

check your pm please for a test build to try out in-conjunction with the current v5.65 release..

Thanks, works fine. I don't know why people don't use it, but again it may be used very much, just not to switch between streams, and there it worked fine.

Replicated but there's little chance of a fix for it as in_mod is just buggy and needs a complete re-write which is not possible currently. alas there's not much that can be done even to patch the issue due to the nature of the failures.

have attached the file to this post for the future possibility it can be fixed.

Okay I also am VERY OFTEN using the gen_tray and I am also annoyed every time that when I use the BACK button, the song "double-starts" which sounds like the first note "stuttering", depending on how much "silence" is at the start of the song.

I think I also reported this bug years and years ago, but it somehow went lost, and it is not so extremly annoying because I mainly use gen_tray to go the NEXT song (on Shuffle...) where this does not happen.

But nice to see that fixed in the next version!!

Especially if it also can cause, under some circumstances like yours, a real crash.

Thanks!

(uhm... because I do not want to use Cloud in the near future, I wouldn't update to 5.7 so it would be so great if that could be included in another 5.6x Build OR maybe the new gen_tray could be downloaded separately manually?)

Thanks anyway and best regards,
kzuse

are you really being serious? for somone that has been around these forums for so long i'd have expected you to know that like everything else you can un-check the Cloud components when installing the beta builds as explained at http://forums.winamp.com/showpost.ph...47&postcount=8

Okay... I didn't read this, but you're right, I should have supposed that.

But actually, the point I wanted to express was another: In general, I'm not productively using Betas normally (except for one machine for testing purposes), so I will stick to 5.65 for now. That's why I asked if it would be backported to a new 5.6x "final" build.

If and when 5.7 is ready, I will install it without Cloud support (but one is never sure what an installer does NOT install when unchecked... ;-) )

rightio, i won't need to send you the test build of the plug-in as you seem to want to prefer to wait for another 5.6x build with it included and as i've gotten the confirmation the issue is fixed there's no reason to send out extra copies of it anyway.

and if you want to have a dig at what the installer does or doesn't do, just openly state it than trying to be coy. as it's known what it does and doesn't do and it's even been explained on these forums (when it should not) and is what has to be done as part of keeping Winamp free.

and this irritable post has been brought to you by the incessant annoyance caused by tooth ache.

Latest 5.7 build seems to work fine without the cloud, just by logging out. No need to install/uninstall the component all the time. Not been able to login for weeks now, so not been rigorously tested. If this turns out to have no side effects it's just what's needed to address the speed issues.

O my god, I didn't want to annoy anyone as tooth ache and also didn't want to be irritating.

And the comment about the installer was in no way intended as an offence, just a thought about installers in general. Sorry if that could be gotten wrong...

Again, o my god......... ^^

I'll just wait for the next final, be it 5.6x or 5.7, install it, and be happy about the fix, which for me is not as crucial as I have experienced no crashes yet due to the double firing back button. It's all fine!

Alright...

Winamp 5.65 - freshly installed
No Language Packs
Skin: Winamp Classic
Windows 7 64-Bit SP1, DE_DE
Intel i5-2600K 3.30 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Asus P8Z68-V S1155 Z68
GeForce GTX 560 Ti, Driver 320.49
Realtek HD, Driver 6.0.1.6251
DirectX 11?

There seems to be a problem with the metadata decoding in the Winamp MPEG Audio Decoder Plugin V4.100 (included with Winamp 5.65).

When listening to a specific stream the current title won't update for some tracks. The title also won't update when I stop/start the stream, Winamp just displays the stream name. Tests with XMplay and Foobar2000 show that they don't have this problem. When the title in Winamp is NOT displaying, starting the stream in either of these players will immediately show the title there, so everything is pointing at a bug in Winamp.

One of the track names this happens with is "Katy Perry - Roar" (yeah, yeah). Always when this plays, the title won't update in Winamp, it's very strange. A friend of mine working at the radio station has monitored the metadata in the stream and says that they have no problem on their end...

Stream URL is: http://httpmedia.radiobremen.de/bremenvier.m3u
Currently resolving to: http://gffstream.ic.llnwd.net/stream/gffstream_mp3_w49a

Stream info from Winamp:
Server: Limecast 2.0.1
Content-Type: audio/mpeg

Edit: The stream is playable outside of Germany.

If there is any debug mode or so that I can enable to provide more information, I'd be happy to help.

Skin: Winamp Classic
Windows XP SP3

have you tried to start winamp as Administrator and do the config change?
if you use Win7/Vista and Installed Winamp under C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files(x86)
it could be a permission problem --> UAC

Notifications Refresh Problem (Winamp Modern Skin)

Notifications (Modern Skin) do not refresh properly any more in Winamp 5.65 and 5.64. This has been reproduced on Win 7 x64 (no clean installation) and Win 8 x64 (clean installation) independently. The bug shows as follows:

The notifications in the bottom right corner used to show the current status (such as title name, "playback paused", "end of playback") on every key hit such as "play", "pause", "stop" (or mouse click on the corresponding buttons, respectively). Particularly, when playing a song, pressing "pause" displayed "playback paused". and when resuming with "play", it displayed the title of the song. This used to work perfectly and very reliably!

Since Winamp 5.64, those notifications became very unreliable and capricious! Pressing "pause" always shows "playback paused", but resuming the song with "play" does most of the time NOT display the song title again. Rarely it works, usually it doesn't. The same holds for stopping a song ("stop") and resuming the song again ("play").

In a nutshell, if the track is stopped or paused, pressing "play" does (in most of the cases) not show the song title in the notifications!

I consider this as a bug as it used to work perfectly in earlier versions of Winamp.

-Winamp 5.65, 5.64 - clean install
-Winamp Language Pack: none

it most likely relates to the fixes made to prevent it from randomly failing after a few shows (as was often being reported and seems to have stopped being reported since that release). i've not tried to replicate it but that seems like the most likely reason if it started with v5.64.

I have a different experience than Borkar. Most of the time the notifications work correctly. If I play with them long enough (rapid changes or waiting until each notification fades), I can get the play notification to not show after a pause or stop. If I keep cycling through pause & play or stop & play long enough or switch to the next or previous song, then the notifications all start working correctly again.

I have increased the time the notifications stay on the screen and the fade out time, don't know if that is the reason for my results. I don't remember the default times. Tell me what they are and I'll switch back and see if it makes a difference.

The default times are fade in 1s, hold time 2s, fade out 5s. Personally, I prefer fade in 0.1s, hold time 2s, fade out 0.5s.

I am glad that you were able to reproduce it at least "somehow"!

Thank you for the info. I get no difference with the default timing. I need to keep cycling thru several times before I get the play notification to fail. It happens sooner if I let the notifications fade completely. Again, several more cycles or switching to another song gets it working again.

I'm not able to select 100 milliseconds. My configuration shows 250, 500, and 750 for options below 1 second. This may be because I normally use a cPro skin and I did not disable that plug-in when I switched to the Winamp Modern skin.

Anyway, frequent or infrequent failures of the play notification to appear shows there is something not working right.

Obviously, it is much less of a problem for me and I probably would not have noticed, without you mentioning it. I normally use 2, 5, and 7.5 seconds. Even-though I have the notifications displaying at the top center of my screen, when I'm multitasking it takes me a little longer to glance at them during consecutive playback.

Hi,

Identified few crashes with latest free version of WinAMP Standard in below plugins. Few of them could lead to security issues i believe.

libmp4v2.dll
in_midi.dll

Reproduction Steps:

1. Get WinAMP standard from here :-> http://www.winamp.com/media-player/all
2. Get all POCs from here from below link.

<link removed>


Try to play them with the standard version. Let me know, if you have any trouble reproducing this issues.

Thank you!

there will be confirmed fixes for the libmp4v2.dll issues in the next release.

with the in_midi.dll issue, due to the age of the plug-in, a fix that prevents it crashing has been applied but what it's now broken we do not know as other than a complete re-write of the plug-in, it's likely we've broken something as part of trying to prevent the crash.

@DrO

Thank you. As I've already told, few of the reported issues are pretty serious, and has high security risk. I was planning to publish advisory for those. I will do that after you release patch for these issues.

Thank you!

There's no pleasing everyone. I like that the complete version info is displayed without me having to open the about dialog (even-though it is rare that I have an empty playlist editor). I've always depended on the build number to be sure what version I'm using (when using beta and stable code), but that's just me.

It's also nice to see the place-holder llama image. I rarely see it nowadays with my configuration and file collection.
