Winamp 5 video window bug
Sorry to post this here, but I don't see a bug report forum for Winamp 5.
This bug concerns the video window. I opened up my favorite video stream (ohmytrance.com) with the new Winamp 5 beta. The video came up in the integrated video window. I then chose to "Detach Video". Once detached, the video window would not close. Every time I tried to close it (either via the [X] or unchecking "Video" from the dropdown menu), it would pop back up immediately. I tried this several times. If I re-attach the video window, the detached window will automatically pop up if I enter Windowshade made, and re-attaches automatically when I return to normal mode.
I'm in the process of determining what steps are required to allow the video window to be closed while still listening to the stream. I have been able to do this twice so far. After I am able to get it to close, it will work fine that way until I close and re-open Winamp 5. I will post the steps taken to get it to close if I can figure it out, or if it's even guaranteed reproducable. Note that the video window only remains unclosable when an active video stream is playing.
I'm running Windows XP SP1a and DirectX 9.0b. My Video card is an NVidia GeForce4 Ti4600 running Detonator v45.23 drivers. I have the following video settings enabled:
- Display the video window when video playback begins
- Resize video window to fit video
- Disable Windows screensaver when in fullscreen mode
- Lock video aspect ratio
- Allow hardware video overlay
- Allow YV12 overlay mode
On a side note, I'm not sure if this is intended or a bug, but every time the stream changes videos, the library window pops up on the screen. Hope this info helps squash whatever is causing this. Let me know if you would like me to provide any more info.
EDIT: changed subject name to better reflect problem
