Hi danton, it's been like that since the take over.

it's been reported long ago, but it's still up in the air at the moment.

Some sort of window focus issue as far as I can tell, something that needs fixing server side.
You can work around it by refocusing the window but it's a PITA.

[edit] Try it again today, seems to be fixed now. but may revert again, who knows.

Hi Egg, that's not the screen I get, I think there's something in how wide you set the pane ??

@danton.q

Spot the difference...

Your screenshot vs My screenshot

Your screenshot shows that you're either using an old version of Winamp and/or your internet cache is messed up or something.
My screenshot shows what the SHOUTcast Radio view looks like in Winamp 5.666 where you just click the Play arrow next to a station to play it.


@ujay

Really? Hmmmm.... can't reproduce it here....

Hi Egg, got my screen shots muddled, I get the same as you.

The focus issue seems to be fixed now, previously any click worked once and then focus moved to the main window. Scrolling turned the volume up and down etc.

danton, try it again and maybe set you media pane wider.

I have downloaded Winamp TODAY here (version 5.666 FULL US/EN) :
http://winampplugins.co.uk/Winamp/

I have installed it on a just fresh new installed up_to_date Windows.

I've selected "Classic" appearance at Winamp setup.

That's all, it cannot be more standard.

If your winamp works and not mine, it is maybe because you have modified something on you installation.

Hi Egg, I've got Win7, the focus issue still shows up intermittently.
I'm prepared to blame my touchpad software though, it's a bit quirky.

I've had a look on a tablet with Win8.1 desktop and that looks OK, not really given it a good going over.

I'll dig out an XP machine later and try that as well.

danton, have you set the media pane as wide as you can ???

Give the Modern or Bento skin a try, see if that changes anything for you.

From "Winamp Classic" skin :

* Select "Winamp Modern" skin.
* Close and restart Winamp.
* Media Library works well with shoutcast radios.

* Select back to "Winamp Classic" skin.
* Close and restart Winamp.
* Media Library works well with shoutcast radios.

So changing Classic skin to another and then switch back to Classic skin looks like to solve the problem and make Shoutcast work again (didn't test if it survives a reboot of my computer).

It's probably an IE8 issue, e.g. it doesn't support some of the newer ajax/javascript functions....

[EDIT]

Oh, ok.... so refreshing the skin fixes it. Cool.

Hi super cool dev people I have a suggestion for a few auto tag features.
Can we get tags based on the ones already present in the files so the info that's missing gets filled in and can we select which fields get filled lets say if some one is fairly confident their info is correct and want to fill in just the genre?

I hope "Winamp Classic" skin will stay in the future versions of Winamp.

And what has happened to Shoutcast TV exactly ? Why was it not kept ?

I don't think danton.q is reading the thread. It was already explained that AOL owns the code and Radionomy/Winamp devs do not have permission to use it. From DJ Egg on 1/11/15:

Quote:
The reason why those services don't work any more is because AOL shut them down and we don't legally have permission to use them.
Anyway, keep chugging away guys. I can't wait to see the next version. I hope to not wait another year, but if I get the most awesome product this side of the Milky Way, then it's worth waiting for.

Not all good things last forever and I am sad the way winamp has turned out, but I found a new media player and cd ripper, so it doesn't matter what happens now and also tired of the wrong song and album cover showing up while playing my music through winamp. So long winamp.

I believe this is due to the wrong album art in the file or folder. Not like it matters now for you.

And what do you mean "sad the way winamp turned out"? Winamp is pretty freakin awesome to manage my music collection imo. Way better than WMP and itunes.

I don't even bother with album art and song art. And I've never found ANY player that can manage playlists as efficiently and as seamlessly as Winamp. Microsoft really never gave alot of thought into managing the way songs were arranged prior to playing them, let alone good tools for controlling how titles may appear in said playlists.

Thank God that's one bit of code that AOL didn't decide was theirs and Winamp can't have it....

Could you explain? Mine looks nothing like that, where did you get Winamp and what version is it? No, I don't mean the skin. I'm talking about the about page,here's mine for example

Edit:haynz you should check for viruses, rootkits etc. and get rid of it to be safe, I just installed from http://winampplugins.co.uk/Winamp/ just to check and there is no difference from my screen shot... tell us where you got this so we can keep people away from it.

Don't worry, seems like a bad-fake-mockup, a shoutcast.com screenshot is pasted over the About Winamp pic. You can tell by how it overlaps on the bottom part and the bad top margin (and the lack of stroke around the pic, and the difference of color between the window bg and the page..).

What I meant to type was when using winamp through lastfm, it plays the wrong song and wrong album cover at times, it does quite a few times during the week, so I am going to be using music bee, which seems will be better as winamp is not what is used to be.

Guys and girls,

Please read the thread. There is a lot of work being done on Winamp for the relaunch. Be patient and enjoy the current version. The Devs are at work

The next release is supposed to be some time in late 2015, same as every post on this thread that announced it. But it might be even later due to extenuating circumstances. Please read the entire thread before posting to complain or ask when it is coming out. Or you can save yourself and us the trouble by checking http://winampplugins.co.uk/Winamp/ for updates.

All these one-off "Waaaaaa, new winamp must be NAO" posts could find a nice home in the Bin. They add nada to this thread, more than a few of them are throw away posts by throw away accounts and that is what the Bin is for.





Also, the Bin dwellers would find them tasty, crunchy and probably quite good with ketchup.

In hindsight I think winamp going open sourced(github etc) would have been a better idea. These Radionomy devs just don't communicate with the community at all about recent development.

On November 20, 2013, AOL announced that on December 20, 2013, it would shut down Winamp.com, and the software would no longer be available for download, nor supported by the company after that date. The following day, an unofficial report surfaced that Microsoft was in talks with AOL to acquire Nullsoft. Despite AOL's announcement, the Winamp site was not shut down as planned, and on January 14, 2014, it was officially announced that Belgian online radio aggregator Radionomy had bought the Nullsoft brand, which includes Winamp and Shoutcast. No financial details were publicly announced. However, TechCrunch has reported that the sale of Winamp and Shoutcast is worth between $5 and $10 million, with AOL taking a 12% stake (a financial, not strategic, investment) in Radionomy in the process.

For the past 12 months, Radionomy has been focused on making SHOUTcast profitable. Once that happens more resources can be shifted to the re-work and re-release of Winamp (probably the desktop client first). The new Winamp version is expected to be a 'free' app including the features that were previously sold in the Pro version. Free or low cost alternatives for most of the online features and licensed code AOL was paying for are also expected. The first new release is expected to have several code optimizations and few new features.

Winamp going open source was never an option (despite the online petition started by some Winamp fans), AOL was just going to shut everything down. Read posts #751 and #768 in this thread, continue using the current version, and CHILL OUT. It won't hurt to urge everyone you know, with an interest in online radio, to support SHOUTcast.

I still think they should just stick a bright red banner with large bold black font at the top of the forums site that says "status of winamp development" that links to a locked thread that says:

Q. When will the new Winamp be released?
A: No official ETA has been announced.... <details about shoutcast and the other details>

Q: Can I post in the forum asking for status updates or complain about it taking forever to release? Because i'm sure it's never been brought up before.
A: Sure, if you want your post deleted and your account banned.

There is ample evidence that cry babies' posts are not deleted and their accounts are not banned.

I do wish these people would do something else with their time.

No one is happy with the current situation, but causing others to waste time coming here to read news and just finding another whine doesn't help anyone.

Well this is something that.....

1). Can AND SHOULD be handled behind the scenes WITHOUT taking it off the market AT ALL
2). Should only require A SIMPLE UPDATING of the product page on all the app stores. A task which should only take 5 minutes - NOT A MONTH

YET ANOTHER fine example of people not knowing/doing/practicing SIMPLE BASIC COMMON SENSE Internet 101 & therefore doing things the hard way impacting US USERS in the process

NOT ranting here (Well OK that's a lie ). Just simply pointing out this should've & could've been handled A WHOLE LOT BETTER if SOMEONE had used some BRAINS (Remember THOSE ?? )

[merge point]

Umm FYI Facebook is THE WORST place on the Internet for file hosting because IT IS NOT A FILE HOSTING SITE !!!

I get the idea of the community havcing a page there. But HOSTING FILES there ?? FORGET IT !!! I'm NOT scrolling through all that clutter looking for some post about the addition of Winamp in the files section. And scrolling through the files section isn't very user friendly either

Whoever came up with the idea of using FACEBOOK as a FILE HOST needs to HAVE THEIR HEAD EXAMINED !!!

Does someone have Winamp available on a site OTHER THAN Facebook ?? Looking for Winamp for my Android

Trying to pardon the mess as best as I can but I've been in places IRL where the situation bears the "Please Pardon Our Mess" or "Under Construction" banner but STILL am able to eventually find my way around to where I want to go or need to be. THIS OTOH is WORSE than that

THAT is why people FAILED to use some BRAINS !!! If SOMEONE had, these bases would've been better covered IMO

Cheers

VERY IMPORTANT EDIT Looking for Winamp For Android ?? Download it HERE (Direct APK Download)

That said though Someone who's been doing this may wanna add the APK file to their collection so it's on a website which the community is more familiar with (Found the site via Google)
