I have some MPEG 2.0 layer 3 recorded in a CD but with .mid extension insted of mp2. When i double click a file like that Winamp opens and tries to play it with midi input plugin. Since it is not a midi file it does not play and stops, and winamp does not try to play it with another plugin trying guess the content type :~-|
So i have uninstalled the midi input and when then it works as expected. I think the midi input have a bug.
Thanks

No! The Midi plugin is configured to play .mid files by default (prefs > plugins > input > in_midi > config > file types tab). If you deselect MID, or disable in_midi then in_mp3 will attempt to play ANY unrecognised/unsupported filetypes due to the setting at: Prefs > Playlist: Assume file ext of unknown files = mp3. Basically, this is all by design, and certainly not a bug, ie. the file extension (not the content) determines which input plugin should be used.

Please reconsider, Mister DJ Egg: my father made that cd with wrong extensions, but he could play all of them in windows media 10 with the default configuration. We do not want to leave WinAmp! Save-us! The workaround instructions you wrote does not work.
Thanks anyway

I didn't actually give any workaround. All I said was that it isn't a bug, but it's the way the Winamp plugin architecure works/is designed (ie. the file extension determines which input plugin/decoder is used).

Unselect MID from the MIDI plugin config (in_midi > Filetypes tab), then add ;MID to the extension list in the MPEG Audio Decoder (in_mp3) config > Extension List.

This should work, but alas it'll then mean that you won't be able to play any proper .mid files any more (not unless you change the settings back).
