SLOW Winamp5 start and Media Lib.

Hello,

even after installing the 5.01 version, the start of WinAmp 5 takes a long time, probably 30 seconds. Version 2.91 started in 5 seconds. Is there nothing to do about it?

Also very slow is adding, moving, removing and renaming playlists in the media library. It takes 20 seconds to rename a playlist. This really bugs me!

My system:
AMD XP 2400+
512 MB
GEforce 4 4200
WinXP
All newest drivers
Modern skin in Winamp5

Well, I guess I solved the problem myself.

It was my virus-scanner. On each start of WinAmp the file gen_ml.ini was scanned almost 2000 times. Sure that this caused the slow startup.
After I set the WinAmp directory on the exception list, even the media library became fast as hell.

Read this thread > Sonic Problem.

I'm running WinXP with no problems, but a few (not many) people with XP ran into the problem you have, and that problem is also mentioned in the thread I linked to above. If you need to disable the Sonic Engine, you would have to uninstall Winamp 5 first, then reinstall. But make sure you UNcheck the box for Sonic Ripping/Burning Support (under Audio File Support).

See this screenshot...


Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.
