- Winamp 5.9 (5.90.0.9999) - clean install
- Active Winamp Language Pack (English)
- Intel Core (TM) i5-10210U CPU @ 1.60 GHz 2.11 GHz
- Windows 10, Version 21H2, English
- Intel UHD Graphics (Intel corp. 30.0.101.1404)
- Realtek Audio (drv. 6.0.9341.1)
====
Two issues
1. After first install all seems to be ok, but after first computer shutdown/restart WinAMP does not play the file you DoubleClick in system and always show the list of files that left from previous run
2. If you open PowerAMP (even not playing file) Windows cannot be correctly shutdown/restarted as WinAMP cannot be automatically closed (need to force stopping of WinAMP)

I've fount very annoying bug in new Winamp.
Every time i try to shutdown or reboot Windows while Winamp is running, the player freezes and won't let the operating system shutdown. To do that, i have to force shutdown or cancel it and "kill" the Winamp process manually.

The bug occurs both on my old desktop PC with Windows 10 and on laptop with Windows 11

How to reproduce:
1. Open Winamp (no songs needs to be played)
2. Try to shutdown or reboot your Windows.
3. Winamp freezes.

Equipment:

PC #1
Winamp 5.9.0 Build 9999 (clean install)
Language: English
Skin: Winamp Modern
Windows 10 pro 64 bit, version 21H2 (19044.2006). Polish
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E8600 @ 3.33GHz 3.33 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
Sound chip: Device compatible with High Definition Audio (driver version: 10.0.19041.264)
Video chip: Intel(R) Q45/Q43 Express Chipset (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1) (driver version: 8.15.10.2702)

PC #2
Winamp 5.9.0 Build 9999 (clean install)
Language: English
Skin: Winamp Modern
Windows 11 Home 64 bit, version 21H2 (22000.978), Polish
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8250U CPU @ 1.60GHz 1.80 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
Sound chip: Realtek High Definition Audio (driver version: 6.0.9205.1)
Video card: Radeon 520 (driver version: 27.20.20908.0)
This problem is not only Winamp 5.9 but also 5.8 and 5.666 maybe earlier. I can offer a solution in the form of a plugin.

Have you copied (unpacked) gen_qes.dll to \Winamp\plugins folder?

this bug happens in any system compatible.

HTTPS streams fails to play (from m3u files) at first attempt with double click and the following message is visible in the playlist window "(connecting to host)", but if you do another double click then it connects and plays the stream normally.

Incompatible streams (This should not be!)

Hello DJ Egg,

- WINAMP v5.9.0 Build 9999 (x86) - clean install
- Active Winamp Language Pack - Default English
- System Specs - ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS, AMD FX(tm)-4130 Quad-Core Processor, RAM 4.00 GB
- Windows OS - Windows 7 SP1 32-Bit English
- Video card + drivers version - ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics - 8.850.0.0
- Sound card/chip + drivers version - Realtek High Definition Audio - 6.0.1.6526

I have just upgraded to v5.9.0 Build 9999 from WINAMP Pro 5.666 Build 3516.

I use WINAMP as my streaming radio station player and have noticed that there are problems playing certain station streams in WINAMP.

Below are five stream links that all play just fine in the current Firefox, but not at all in WINAMP.

Kohina
code:
http://kohina.duckdns.org:8000/stream.ogg


X13 Radio - Funk Music
[codel]http://x13.streamguys1.com/x13-funkmusic[/code]
or
code:
https://x13.streamguys1.com/x13-funkmusic


HBR1 - Trance
code:
http://radio.hbr1.com/stream/trance.ogg


LAOldies K-Surf 105.1 FM
code:
https://14993.Live.StreamTheWorld.com/KSURAMAAC_SC


The first three links above also failed to work in WINAMP Pro 5.666 Build 3516. The "HBR1" and "LAOldies" links I believe are regressions in WINAMP v5.9.0 Build 9999. I can not confirm this since I no longer have WINAMP Pro 5.666 Build 3516 installed to check.

There seems to be, in my opinion, general incompatibility with WINAMP and streams that are hosted on Icecast servers (.ogg streams) and additionally issues connecting to streams that are using "https://" secure connections. In the past I had many streams fail to function when using "https://" but work just fine after removing the "s" to produce an "http://" stream address. This technique does not work on all streams, where they only will function with "https://" and not on "http://" when tested in Firefox.

Unfortunately I did not keep track of all of the streams which failed to load in WINAMP since there was no support being provided to fix bugs in WINAMP, until now!

I hope that you can fix the bugs with WINAMP working with "https://" streams and ".ogg" streams.

"https://" streams are basically the way of the future and more will be coming that only support "https://" and not "http://." So consider the bug to be of concern and not a non issue.

Thanks for you assistance in this matter,
Michael

1. Doesn't play in 5.8 or 5.9. Plays ok in MPC/VLC
2. Doesn't play in 5.8 or 5.9 (http or https). Plays ok in browsers & other players
3. Plays ok in 5.8 and 5.9
4. http stream works ok, not https

We need to replace the internal IE10-based engine with e.g. Chromium/QtWeb or similar.
IE10 is deprecated and many sites no longer support it.
Once replaced, all supported streams should work...

XML predefined entity names in the current song title

Hello DJ Egg,

- WINAMP v5.9.0 Build 9999 (x86) - clean install
- Active Winamp Language Pack - Default English
- System Specs - ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS, AMD FX(tm)-4130 Quad-Core Processor, RAM 4.00 GB
- Windows OS - Windows 7 SP1 32-Bit English
- Video card + drivers version - ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics - 8.850.0.0
- Sound card/chip + drivers version - Realtek High Definition Audio - 6.0.1.6526

(The following applies to WINAMP v5.9.0 Build 9999 as well as earlier versions)

In the current song title, which can be seen in the following places...

• WINAMP main window scrolling text
• WINAMP PLAYLIST track title
• WINAMP PLAYLIST > right click View file info... > Metadata > Playing field
• WINAMP PLAYLIST > right click View file info... > Status > Current title:

..., I have seen the inclusion of XML predefined entity names in the text.
The five entity names are as follows...

Names
1. "
2. &
3. '
4. <
5. >

...and should not be seen in the song title, but rather the associated character should appear in place of the entity name as follows:

Character
1. "
2. &
3. '
4. <
5. >

For example:

Paul McCartney &amp; Wings - Junior&apos;s Farm

should appear as:

Paul McCartney & Wings - Junior's Farm

I do not know if this is a bug on the part of the stream's server, or a bug in the WINAMP client. If the song title is supposed to be encoded as as an XML string, then this is a bug in WINAMP and should be fixed. If not, then you might want to delete this bug report... but you might still want to include the replacement of XML entity names with the related character since this occurs on, in my experience, many stream servers. I do not think that this will hurt anything since I do not expect any song title would normally have the XML entity names in it.

- Michael

Access Violation in gen_ff

While pondering this thread -> http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=459373 I decided to check a full and complete install of Winamp 5.9. When I tried to switch to Winamp Modern skin Winamp just disappears and doesn't come back. I installed the Windows SDK on a non-development machine to test out the feasibility of normal users running debuggers. Not viable. Anyways, I put Winamp under WinDbgX86 and the following is what came up.



FYI, I normally don't do a full install of all Winamp components.

[EDIT/]
Added info tool report.

[EDIT2/]
Confirmed with clean install. Winamp crashes when switching from Winamp Classic to Winamp Modern.

@thinktink

The crash report refers to 5.9.0.9999 which was the beta/RC builds.
5.9 Final is marked as 5.90.0.9999

Also, you'd need to remove all your own and any other non-default plug-ins to confirm if the problem persists with 5.9F

A crash when switching from Classic to Modern skin (or any other freeform skins) is not something we can reproduce.

The report suggests your gen_ff.dll is corrupted...

I just re-downloaded final from the forums link, uninstalled Winamp, cleared and deleted the Program Files (x86)\Winamp folder, cleared and deleted the %APPDATA%\Winamp folder, and reinstalled Winamp Full. It's still doing it without any 3rd party plugins installed, even my own.



I don't know what else to say or do. Winamp doesn't generate a crash report that I can find.

[EDIT/]
Including gen_ff for you to look at in case you're right and it's getting corrupted somehow.

I found a way to get Windows 10 to generate a crash dump. It made two, included both.

I just discovered something. If I run Winamp in compatibility mode for Windows 98/ME then I can switch to a modern skin without crashing. Yay, Bento is back! I understand this is not a good solution, I'm only posting in the hopes it narrows down the source of the issue further.

that has always been the case. thats bc even if u don't change the info, when u click ok instead of cancel the entire file has to resave. for me it sometimes stutters and sometimes doesn't, but that behavior has been consistent ever since i first starting using winamp, years ago.
