Suddenly URL and/or .mp3 track names

Well, i've searched this forum for most of the day and can't find the answer that works, here.

Suddenly, when playing a stream from a URL, winamp no longer displays the Artist/Title of the song, but now displays the filename, i.e.,
song.mp3 .

No matter how I change the title format, it only affects locally played files and not streams of mp3 or mu3. And yes, I have tried unchecking and checking the ID3 tags with no apparent impact.

This does not occur when play local hard drive mp3s.


Thanks in advance!

I'm having the same problem with Winamp 3. If I load a playlist with extended info, the artist and track name are displayed in the playlist editor until the track begins playing. Then it is replaced by the file name, even though an id3v2 tag is present in the mp3.

I'm also having the same problem. I've been reading around and ID3v2 tags are placed at the beginging of the file and therefore are read first, but and this is just something I read any may not be true, ID3 tags can't be read via http!!
