Winamp for Android 1.4.11 test build

The production version of Winamp for Android (v1.4.10 and earlier) has two frequently-reported playback issues that we are trying to fix.
Before releasing a new production build on Google Play, we are releasing a limited beta build and are asking for your feedback.

- The first fix is related to stuttering/skipping problem during playback.

- The second fix addresses the issue where playback randomly stops.


To help test our fix, please click on the link below from your Android device to side-load the Winamp 1.4.11 beta apk

For instructions on how to side-load an app outside of the Google Play store, visit our labs page for additional details:

Once you've downloaded the beta apk, please use the app as you normally would and try to recreate either of the two playback issues listed above.

If you do experience an issue, long hold on the lightning bolt icon for three seconds (this is the icon located in the bottom right-hand corner of the player controls). By long holding, the Winamp app will force close/crash (note: this is intentional) and will send us a crash report. When you long hold on the icon for three seconds, you will see a pop-up message at the bottom of the screen that reads: “Oooops! Winamp crashed, preparing a crash report”. It is very important that you perform the intentional long hold crash, as soon as you experience the playback issue so that we can receive your logs and investigate the problem further.

Whether you can or cannot recreate the problem, it would also be very helpful if you could post in this thread and let us know your experience:

·Fixed / Did not fix stuttering issue
·Fixed / Did not fix random stopping issue

Please include the make/model of your device and the Android OS you are running (2.3.6, 4.2.1, etc.).

Please also note that 1.4.11 is the continuation of 1.4.10, plus the fixes.
It is not from the same codebase as the 2.0 beta build on Winamp Labs.

Thanks in advance for your support in helping us test this new build.

This thread will self-destruct in ~3 days :-)
