    Which balance slider?
    The one in Windows Volume Control?
    Or the one in the Winamp main window?

      balance bar

      I'm talking about the bar on the right of the volume control bar (green if centered, red if not)

        sorry, that's winamp main window, precisely

          Hmm . . . that shouldn't be happening.

          What file formats are you playing at the time?
          mp3, wav, midi, wma, cda, other, any/all?

          Installed any 3rd-party plugins?
          (input, output, dsp/fx, general purpose)

          Using WaveOut or DirectSound Output?
          (Winamp -> Prefs -> Plugins -> Output)

          Basic system specs?
          Windows OS and soundcard?

            I'm playing mp3 and mp3/pro
            => plugin thomson mp3pro 1.0
            it's my only plugin and I never add and removed any other

            I use waveout output

            config :
            win2k sp2, soundblaster 128

            I think the pb is likely to disappear if I reinstall winamp so tell me if there is smthg you want me to test before, to help find the source of it

              Tell me if the bug is in the 3rd-party MP3Pro plugin...

                hardware config :
                my sound card is actually a creative sb audio pci (wdm) (I also have one included in my motherboard but don't use it)

                first, the pb has nothing to do with mp3pro plugin (occurs before I even install it) (nor with shuffle mode)

                this is how I install winamp :
                my install : 2.91 lite
                + only "audio file support" & "Extra audio..."
                no internet connexion

                this is the explanation of the pb, I tried to make it clearer :
                when the song changes, balance bar stays on the side but sound comes from both sides, until click on the bar as if to have winamp refresh its position

                1 first tries :
                deleting the ini file does not help
                reinstalling without uninstalling neither

                new install (uninstall + reinstall) => alright, problem solved
                change skin => still OK (may be obvious, but...)
                replace ini file with saved version that I keep to save config => pb appears
                pb probably comes from the saved ini file (attached)

                then :
                leave on 100% right balance

                then all my wave output is affected, including all sounds softwares (like video player)
                only sound from the right
                hence if I reinstall winamp,
                only sound on the right side
                in other words:
                balance position : left 100% => no sound
                center => 50% right, 0% left
                right 100% => 100% right, 0% left

                until I click on the balance bar in the volume control panel (it is centered, but act as if it was not) and everything goes back to normal

                conclusion :
                pb is solved for me as long as I do not use my old ini file
                maybe the answer is in it
                it has nothing to do with the mp3pro plugin

                  Re: tests

                  I just wanted to know if this had been already fixed.

                  DJ Egg, did you reproduce this bug?


                  • #10
                    No, I couldn't reproduce it.

                    According to lafrech, the problem was with the old winamp.ini file.
                    Looking back at it, there's no [Nullsoft MPEG Decoder] section, because he was using the shabby 3rd-party mp3pro plugin, and he's using WaveOut Output on a Win2k system when he should be using DirectSound Output instead.
