As mentioned in the Notes link, ie. the first post in this thread, unicode display in the Taskbar icon is currently not supported, and won't be fixed until the next major release (because it requires a seriously major fix).

If you can call that 'playback'
Winamp or Foobar can "play" those files,but the sound quality is pure terror.Even worse than shit

Here's a much better test:
http://stashbox.org/1176/WA_FP32_WAV_Test.7z
(now you'll see what the real thing sounds like)

Unzip the archive with 7-Zip or WinRAR,put these 2 WAVs in the WA playlist,activate Repeat and hit play.
Now compare the _huge_ difference between the correctly played (Standard) and the incorrectly played (Adobe) file.

Note: In an audio app / editor which supports both formats,they both sound exactly the same.

Yeah, point taken.
But it plays like shit in all of winamp, foobar, windows media player, media player classic, and vlc just produces silence. So it's obviously not something specific to Winamp, and not something that can easily be fixed/supported if the system wave parser doesn't even properly support it. System Wave Parser sees it as Signed 32bit PCM, not 32bit Float.
At a guess, it requires some special adobe/cooledit filter or something.
Lord knows, heh.

Filebox seems to be having some problems. There is now an installer for the update pack which contains updated versions of in_mp3, ml_local, ml_playlists, and the missing filereader.w5s

last i heard, a new release was being considered, but with the release of this pack, perhaps there are delays.

In ID3 tag editor, using "tab" after entering the Album takes you then to the Composer field for some reason instead of the Year field. This pertains to the ID3v2 tags.

Yup. Well spotted.
All of Year, Genre, Comment, and Album Artist are skipped.

However, all fields are eventually reached via tabbing, just not in the correct order.

Probably as a result of moving the Album Artist field down (it was above Comment in the last version).

The new 'Disc' and the Track/Album Gain fields at the bottom are also in the wrong order (goes from 'Encoded' to 'Copy to ID3v1')

btw, in_mp4 editor also suffers with the same issue.

Should be fixed for 5.31
Thanks :-)

Hello Everyone,

This is my very first Winamp forum post but I have been a registered Winamp PRO user for about 2 years. I am happy to finally join the "dysfunctional" Winamp family.

Minor Bug Report:

I am using Winamp PRO 5.3 with updated ml_local and in_mp3 and no optional plug-ins installed.

1) Select a music file in the Local Media / Media Library.
2) Mouse right click on music file.
3) Select Remove / Physically Remove Selected Items
4) When the "Confirm File Delete" window pops up, SELECT NO button.
5) Even if you select the NO button, the audio file is REMOVED from the Media Library.

Thanks for your help!

Hi, and welcome to the forums.

Correct you are, but note that afaik, it's always been like that and it isn't a 5.3-specific issue. However, I guess it should be added to the internal bugtracker and evenyually addressed.

It's actually the same in the playlist window, when you click Rem > Remove > Physically remove selected..., it still removes the entry from the playlist when you click No in the confirm dialog.

Isn't an update pack better than a silent update? Remember the old 2.x days, there were update packs too.

Pro:
- you get faster updates and don't have to wait for the next major release
- you know that updates are aviable, which is better than a silent update.
- you don't have to download ~6MB just for bug fixes

I fail to see your point.

I'm sorry, but I find this new File Infobox getting way too stuffed. =)

iTunes has even more information, but it's aligned way cleaner. For instance, replaygain info shouldn't be in disabled text-boxes, but in that detailed "MPEG info" groupbox.

But I _really_ find all File info boxes should use the same editor, and that that editor should get a major overhaul, heh.

Partially I agree with you, but the RG values are written in the ID3v2 Tags, I guess this is the reason, why they're shown under ID3v2.

I fail to see why you would want people to download a winamp version with outdated plugin versions. Only to make them install a plugin pack (if they find it)?

Offer both of it: an updated winamp fo new downloaders and a plugin pack for those who got the outdated version.

But by the time it takes to set all that up, Winamp 5.31 could be here.

Heh, usually an update pack installer is compiled in a few minutes, unless the coder has chaos on his local drive.

Aye, this is true. But I was also referring to setting up all the changes on the winamp.com main site (home/download pages etc etc). It would be pretty pointless putting up extra info/links to a 5.3a update pack, only to maybe have 5.31 released the next day...

I fully agree with you, but in the time between releases, an update pack is by far better than seperate downloads to .dll files and the users get hotfixes faster.

id3v2 of the second 4.01 is great

I thank you for having done one 4.01 second version provided in the 5.3_update_pack, which contrary to the first 4.01, has the "Artist Album" not interfering more alignment of the v1-v2 infos ; and for what is used the new tag "Disc" since "Artist Album" is always present? But most important for me it is this refound alignment.
Thanks

I benefit from this post for saying that I on my "guest" XP-session, on winamp 5.3 it wouldn't to open stream audio Internet to me.

This is more related to the Winamp Essentials pack than 5.3 proper, but am I the only one who doesn't get track number and year tags when ripping to FLAC?

The new update pack is a very good idea, especially for people who don't know how do download the dlls and where to place them.

But it would be even better if the update pack was announced on the winamp front page, or maybe on the "downloads" page.

'Cos i guess only few people have a look at the forums to see the sticky thread, before/after they install winamp.

Another possible way: After the installation of Winamp 5.3, Winamp should automatically detect the available updates and ask the user to download and install them. Isn't there already such a kind of update mechanism implemented in Winamp? This would be a good use for it.

best regards,
kzuse

//EDIT: Ah, sorry... didn't really read the above posts... so if 5.31 is right about to come, forget about the extra links....

non-administrator right can't play mp3

Good Morning, I've said in my guest-XP-session with winamp-5.3 it doesn't open stream because I found in_mp3.dll doesn't appear for those who are non-administrators rights,
this image show what is shown with Guest

Plug-in directory is good, the in_mp3.dll is here, and "Internet allows connection" is already on, in Preferences in the guest-session.

As a longtime winamp abuser.. errr user I always upgrade to your current revision. I installed 5.3 and was wondering why I do not get my normal Artist and Album views when selecting View / Local Media / Audio? When I click on that option it puts evey song I have into the playlist and plays them. I have installed Winamp53_Update_Pack and rebooted.. what am I missing?

The limited profile / in_mp3 issue is being looked into

@Yabangin
What do you mean exactly? A screenshot might help...
At a guess, you've probably dragged one of the vertical/horizontal seperators all the way to one side, thus hiding one or more of the panes. Or maybe you need to rt-click Audio, select "Edit View", and checkmark 'Artist/Album View' instead of 'Simple View'.
Though as I said, a screenshot of the problem would help.

Ogg doesn't show up for "all supported types"

I skimmed through this whole thread, so hopefully I didn't miss this already being posted but, when I try to add a file in Winamp 5.3 (either through the playlist editor or through the ML) if I leave it on "All supported file types" then it will not show my Ogg files. If I change it to "Ogg" or "All files (*.*)" then it will show them (as attached picture).

I am using Winamp 5.3 with Update Pack on XP SP2.

Changes to file info window

I recently upgraded to Winamp v5.3

I just noticed that the file info window changed somwhere along the way ...
... now including fields for:
  • Disc
  • Track Gain
  • Album Gain
There has been a lot of discussion of Gain in this thread ...
... but can someone confirm that the "Disc" field was added in this release?

Crossing my fingers that the appearance of the disc field in the file info window will someday lead to more ID3 fields being available in the ML.

It is good idea to search you problem before posting. So you may find that thread.

It is know Windows OS 260-characters limitation for extensions in the Open Files Dialog. I already suggested the workaround for it (here):
Quote:
If the filter string "All supported types" is more then 260 chars than Winamp deletes such filter and use by default "Any file (*.*)"
I think this more correct than using partial filter. As for me I will prefer to see unneeded files than not to see the file which I need.

Use ReplayGain options

There has been a lot of discussion about ReplayGain. I now know what ReplayGain means & what the Prefs->Playback->Use ReplayGain->Amplification mode->Apply Gain means, which is the simplest to understand. I would like to have an explanation on what the other Amplification modes used for.... They do alter the volume of a file with RG data differently for this setting.
