M4a Output Files Blocked from Indexing on Vista

Winamp Pro 5.62 on Vista Home Basic SP2.

A problem that I reported earlier has resurfaced in Pro 5.62.

In brief, Winamp should remove the file attribute "N" from newly-ripped M4a files because this attribute blocks indexing by Windows Search. Ideally, Winamp should apply the same index attribute as for the rip output folder. If that is not practical, the default attribute should be "A", not "AN". Winamp applies only "A" to other types of audio output files. M4a output files should be the same.

For full details and steps to reproduce the bug, see item # 56 of this thread from February, 2011: Winamp Blocks M4a File Indexing on Vista

Unable to generate ReplayGain data

Winamp is unable to generate ReplayGain data for certain files. I first noticed this in 5.62, but it's possible the problem arose prior.

Sample:

http://www.mediafire.com/?ejb3jqblay9z88q

Right-click playlist entry > Send to > Calculate Replay Gain returns +0.00 dB track and album gain. "Saving" this data has no effect; the tag editor continues to report "Track Gain: not present" and "Album Gain: not present".

Oh my. Guess I should've searched with the search engine (or even my own two eyes) instead of Ctrl+F, then. Lesson learned.

i Have some problems with New Fraunhofer AAC Codec (enc_fhgaac.dll) ...
if you set bit rate more than 320 kbps (LC-AAC) for output file, and original file have sampling rate 44.1KHz... when you transcode the file you get sampling rate 88.2KHz for output file.
(with files that have original sampling rate 48KHz and more all transcoded normally)
sampling rate 88.2KHz cause compatibility problems with some players

(Winamp 5.62 and Winamp 5.621, clean install, win7 x86)

Thanks. It's a known issue and we're waiting on a direct solution/patch from Fraunhofer.

SPDIF output and skipping traks

If I have a playlist and want to skip several songs with FFWD button to skip track on the main panel, it can only skip one song at the time. I have to use the playlist to do so. I want this to work since i'm using hotkeys from a keyboard. Please fix it. It is annoying. I want to use Winamp, sicne it's giving me the shortest loadingtime and best experience of all the players out on the market. Sincerly

When RSS Subscription becomes invalid, Winamp crashes

I had an RSS podcast subscription. The RSS feed was fine one episode, and when they posted the new episode, Winamp crashed.

After reinstalling winamp and renaming a few media library files to narrow down the problem, I find that the specific RSS feed had become invalid, but since it was already in the subscriptions, it downloaded the new data anyway.

Winamp doesn't appear to have a way to recover from when an RSS feed becomes invalid.

I saved the RSS feed to notepad and opened it up in XML Notepad 2007

XML notepad 2007 said there was an error at a specific point. It was at a point:

"She and her fianc矢roke up." was the line of text, and the error is clearly where the 矢 is.

I imagine this is a unicode issue.


Anyway, in short, Winamp shouldn't constantly crash if it accidentally downloads an invalid feed. It should either validate the feed before it updates it's own feeds.xml file (which ended up being the problem file), or it should incorporate better unicode support.

The feed in question is: http://feeds.thestranger.com/stranger/savage

Right now if you try to add it to the feed list, winamp says the RSS feed is invalid.
The error happens when you had already had it added before the issue, and then click update.

Problem converting FLAC to mp3

Winamp 5.621 (5.6.1.3173) - clean install (with NO 3rd-party plugins) YES
Winamp Language Pack (if not using default English US) JUST ENGLISH
Skin: Winamp Modern
Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
Dell Laptop and my regular CPU, no fancy video cards, lots of speed, both new within a year
Video Card NONE
Sound Card NONE
DirectX version Newest I think - how do I find this out?

I have used the converter many times but it doesn't work any more.

Try to convert from FLAC to mp3 at 320 (using same file directory as original) and it says

"Cannot Open Encoder"

And it doesn't work.

Reinstalled, restarted computer, did a clean install, nothing works. It just won't work.

Am I missing something? I use this converter all the time. Please help!!!

I have a bug report about Nullsoft MP4 Demuxer v2.3 [in_mp4.dll], or something that has to do with jumping within a track with the following format:
Audio:
MPEG-4 AAC LC
192 kbps
Video:
jpeg
2 kbps
300x300

To be more precise, it's about Radio 538 dance department podcasts (RSS feed).
These podcasts contain some jpg's that are shown on specific times.

Bug description: It's not possible to jump to specific times of the podcast. When moving the timeslider to some point in time it will jump back to the last change in JPG previous to the selected time.
Imaging I want to listen to the track starting at 45 minutes, when the last change in video was at 30 minutes, it's not possible with Winamp to get there without needing to wait 15 minutes. I didn't expect this bug to be still in Winamp, it is introduced, somewhere in 2010, maybe end 2009.

More media info about the type of file:
MediaInfo.txt

Additional system info (I don't think its depending on config):
Winamp 5.601 (5.6.0.3091) - clean install (with NO 3rd-party plugins)
Winamp Language Pack: English US
Skin: Winamp Classic (didn't test other skins, don't have them installed)
Windows 7 Enterprise edition X64
System specs: Gigabyte P35-DS3P, Intel C2D E6600, 4GB internal memory
Nvidia GForce 8800GTS 320MB @ driver version 260.99
Creative X-Fi extreme music PCI @ driver version 6.0.1.1373
DirectX 11
Suspecting plugin: Nullsoft MP4 Demuxer v2.3 [in_mp4.dll]
Exact same issue as above. AAC Podcasts downloaded from coverville.com

The v2.0 in_mp4.dll plugin that ships with winamp 5.572 will seek within an AAC/mp4 file without problems. Just swapping the plugin appears to work without any problems.

I've confirmed that v2.4 in_mp4.dll (build date 11JUL11) also has the seeking problem listed above with v2.3. It will only allow seeking to the "chapters" where the JPG changes.

Mediainfo for episode 722, downloaded through iTunes feed.

Winamp 5.621 PRO!!!
Skin: Bento
Windows XP and 7
Intel dual core 2.3Ghz, 4GB RAM
Plugin: pmp_ipod

Disc numbers are not synced to the ipod. This happens with both transcoded audio and non-transcoded. This is a BIG item keeping me from using winamp to sync my iPod. I have a large collection of multi-disc albums, with tracks in each album numbered 1-N and the album name the same for all discs (I _don't_ like the "Album (Disc N)" format and _don't_ want to number tracks continuously across discs). I use disc number and track number to sort tracks. Without disc number on the ipod, multidisc albums are not played properly at all.

Please fix this! It seems to it this should be pretty straightforward and would make winamp my one stop shop for managing my audio!

Is it a common problem with 64 bit version of Windows ? I don't have this problem with Windows XP 32 bit.

This is regarding ipod consistency with the official plugin. First of all, I'm experiencing this year-old crash: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=281485 that was never fixed. This crash occurs after transferring a lot of files to my ipod. Each time Winamp crashed, the database become more and more inconsistent: there are files on the ipod but Winamp doesn't know about them. My free space quickly went from 3.3 GB to 2.8 GB and it is impossible for me to fix.

Winamp needs to implement consistency checks, at least this very simple one: remove everything not in the database.

Winamp Standard 5.62 on 32bit XP SP2
Bug related to in_midi.dll

Some Doom .MUS files wont play while others do.
It only happens with Winamp - in doom wad editors that are using same midiOut devices (in my case microsofts SW synth and timidity++ driver) everything works perfectly fine.
Ive tried some older versions of Winamp with same result.
Im attaching zip with some of the non-working ones, could anyone look into this problem? (yeah for me MUS playback is important )

Nullsoft Windows Media Decoder ignores Aspect Ratio on WMV files

Winamp 5.622, Clean install, Windows XP Pro SP3, 32bit.

I have found that the Winamp built-in WMV decoder (Nullsoft Windows Media Decoder 3.6) ignores the "Display Aspect Ratio" information in WMV files and always displays the videos with square pixels (with standard resolutions like 640x480, this means: 4:3) regardless of what Display Aspect Ratio is indicated in the file.

With 640x480 (NTSC) or 720x576 (PAL) files that contain 16:9 material (also known as "anamorphic"), this means, the Image is squeezed together, as seen in this screenshot:

http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/4962/169u.png

You can test it with the following file:
http://www.polizei.rlp.de/Uniform/blaue_uniform_640.wmv

The file is absolutely standard conform, it correctly indicates the 16:9 display aspect ratio in the file (you can test this with the tool "Media Info" or just try to play the file in VLC player, which does scale it correctly).

Also Windows Media Player 11 displays it correctly.

Best regards,
kzuse

Hello everyone,

I found a problem with the jump to file function/plugin. The search dialog didn't appear sometimes, actually it looks like the main window was hiding it. Never happened until now. Looking a bit further I discovered that by deactivating the option "Skin the window in the current Winamp skin style" was solving this problem. I don't really care to have the search dialog skinned but I wanted to let you know since it looks like more people have this problem.

Technical information:

jump to file extra plugin version is : v1.2.4 (build 1159)
winamp v5.622 (x86)
Running on win 7 ultimate 64 bits.
Skin used is Big Bento with "XP Noir" color theme.

See you!

i'm fully aware of the issue with the jtfe plug-in and have done so for over a year. however i cannot replicate the issue (managed to twice and then never again after code fixes which were made in 1.2.4 and 1.2.5 releases of the JTFE plug-in).

all i can assume is there's a settings conflict (as i've not been provided any winamp.ini to work against) but as i cannot replicate the issue i cannot fix it *shrugs*

Can we please have a progress report on this issue?
It's clearly a bug in Winamp and was reported multiple times across the forums.
People even started building workarounds for this.

When forcing the phone not to be detected as Android (by removing/renaming the Android folder on the SD-card) the synced mp3 or whatever file retains it's embedded cover artwork. This is however only so little useful when one relies on players that make use of the system music library as entries/updates there are only made when Winamp knows it's talking to an android device.

In other words: I can still confirm this bug 10 months and 3 Winamp versions after first reports in the most recent version 5.622.
Is this even recognized as a bug or is this considered a feature and we should thank you for the file-size reduction of our tracks?

[EDIT -> DJ Egg]
Oops. This bug is now fixed for the next release. Thanks!

Hi jph6t,

Some dialog boxes (like the WA preferences box) used by many programs are a fixed size depending on display/screen resolution. They do not expand to fit the text they contain. If you have your system setup to make text easier to read (which expands text DPI to greater than 100% in order to expand small print without reducing your display resolution) then some lines of text in these fixed size dialogs will be truncated.

Thanks for your reply Aminifu.

I have my text size set to 125% by my OS. So as you suggested, this is the reason for the text being truncated.
Trade-off I guess ... I'll just have to decide which is more important to me ... 125% text size or seeing all the text. Thanks again.

Similar problem, except I'm getting it when I'm accessing Gracenote for a custom mix CD I want to rip. I get the dialog box about "do you want to submit", and if there is a program open that uses the MSCVR90.dll (such as Notepad), it pops a dialog box with "This application has failed to start because MSVCR90.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem", with Winamp in the window title. Re-inserting the CD does not trigger the Grace note access.

All looks cool, but after a couple of seconds, if I don't cancel the prompt, any Notepad that was working pops up an error message (see below). The computer comes almost to a complete halt. Everything is sluggish, deadly sluggish.

My analysis indicates that the Gracenote prompt locks msvcr90.dll in exclusive mode (or something similar to that): as soon as the "Submit New" prompt appears, whether the "Submit New" button is clicked or not, any other application that uses msvcr90.dll becomes locked-out, and a message "This application has failed to start because MSVCR90.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem" appears. Try to start, for example, Notepad, while the prompt is displayed or while the "Submit New" dialog is displayed. Cancelling the "Submit New" prompt or the dialog restore things to normal.

This is a bug.

To reproduce, just try to play a CD that is not on CDDB, wait for the Gracenote prompt to appear, and try to start Notepad (or any app that uses msvcr90.dll) or watch what happens to any app that was already running.

Hope it gets fixed soon. Basically, while entering data for submission to CDDB the only thing that can possibly run on the PC is the CDDB data entry dialog.

TioP

CD rip to M4A gets truncated filenames

I'm a naive user despite which I have used winamp naively for many years.
I recently upgraded to 5.623 and installed the full version.
To my knowledge, I have no plugins beyond what comes with the full installer.
My computer is a Dell laptop running Win7 64-bit. It has integrated graphics and 4GB RAM with an Intel i5 cpu.

Apologies for this narrative, but please bear with me. Eventually, I want to know if I should report this as 1) a core bug or 2) a plugin bug.

I bought a couple of CDs recently. These are published by Naxos ad are disks 1 and 2 of Vivaldi Oboe Concerti.

I recall ripping Disk 2 first (because it arrived first). When the other disk arrived, I ripped that, too. I didn't try playing the ripped files until a day or so later when I was testing my new WD TV Live Media Player.

Using the WD TV Live I was puzzled that the device said there were no media files in the directory for the Disk 2 rip. On my laptop, I navigated there to investigate and found that the files existed, but the names were still quite long, e.g.

01 - Stefan Schilli, Judit Kiss Domonkos, Gabor Kosa; Pier Giorgio Morandi- Failoni Chamber Orchestra - Viv

but you may see that it is truncated compared to a file from the Disk 1 rip, e.g.

01 - Judit Kiss Domonkos, Stefan Schilli, Geoffrey Thomas; Bela Nagy- Failoni Chamber Orchestra - Vivaldi- Oboe Concerto In D Minor, Op. 8-9, RV 454 - Allegro.m4a

I figured that was weird because I ripped Disk 1 after Disk 2, so I rechecked my rip preferences without changing them and re-ripped Disk 2. I waited for a couple of files to appear in the output folder and saw that their names, too, were truncated as before.

I tried opening one of these files and Win7 couldn't figure out what program to use because the filetype extension is missing.


So...

Is this a bug already known and/or reported or should I proceed with the clean install instructions?

Many thanks for your patience to have read so far.

humbug: you need to change the output directory for where ripped files go to as your song titles are a lot longer than usual ones and as such is causing the path to be truncated to 259 characters in length (which is a limit imposed by the Operating System). Winamp probably should be better checking for / handling such scenarios but it's not been coded to do so and such long filepath+filename combinations are not the norm.

running evaluation windows 8 developer x64 (build 8102) atm., testing several software packs on it.
Winamp v5.623 runs on it, but in the media library you can, for example, open shoutcast radio or we are hunted, you can scroll through the first page but when you click/select the radio stations or pictures in the browser nothing happens.
switching to several emulation modes like win7/vista/xp but that doesn't work either.
anyone an idea?

USB device cannot auto refresh

OS: win7 x64
Winamp: update v5.621 to v5.623

When I sent to some files to the usb drive (from winamp playlist or media library), I cannot see it in the "media library->Device->USB Drive [X]: ".
Winamp v5.621 no this problem. So I reinstalled v5.621, it's OK!
Perhaps some bugs in pmp_usb.dll.

Sorry for my poor English.

Bug with HE-AAC Playback

Bug with HE-AAC Playback

Version: Winamp 5.623
OS: Windows XP Pro SP2 and SP3
Clean install

Today I noticed that in Winamp 5.623, when playing back a raw MPEG-2 AAC stream file (.aac) which is encoded in HE-AAC, the display of the Sample Rate and Profile in the file info box wrongly states that it is an LC-AAC file with only the half sample rate.

The "resulting" sample rate (i.e. double the LC sample rate, by means of Spectral Band Replication) is not displayed.

In fact, the file is decoded properly WITH SBR layer and the effective output Sample Rate is also displayed as current Sample Rate in Winamp's Main Window.

Please see the attached screenshot which will make it more clear.

In the info dialog, it says "Profile: LC, 22050 Hz", when it should really say "Profile: HE, 44100 Hz" (or "22050 Hz + SBR -> 44100 Hz" or something the like).

Thanks!

Best regards,
kzuse

(Pushing) - I know this is a rather cosmetical issue, but could anybody confirm this?

Winamp v5.623 (Lite)
Nullsoft Windows Media Decoder v3.6
OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1
CPU: Intel i3 M370 @ 2.40GHz
RAM: 4GB (page file is OFF)
File: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/62996911/song.7z

I'd sorry for duplicated message. I've found this topic at last moment.

Issue is Winamp sometimes crashes on 0:55-0:56 minute while playing this file.

How to reproduce:
1. Start Winamp with empty playlist
2. Add extracted file
3. Press Play button
4. Wait 0:55-0:59 seconds.

@MrSinatra:

Here's the beginning of an example file (raw AAC file in ZIP). I just cropped it off, but the first seconds are enough to show the "problem".

Here's the link: http://bit.ly/xI0l1B

Rating Items

Winamp 5.623, Vista SP2

Changing the rating of any item (single or multiple) in the current playlist changes the rating for ALL the tracks in the playlist regardless of their previous rating.
