  • Crash while scanning "watch folders"

    After modifying my mp3 library, I went to Winamp Preferences-->General Preferences-->Media Library-->Local Library and clicked the "Rescan Now" button as I usually do, in order to rescan my media folders and get rid of missing files.

    After about 10 seconds, while scanning files, Winamp crashes.

    100% reproducible.

    Any tip how to get rid of this crash ? Thank you.

    Oh, these crashes are caused by the in_mp3.dll of this Winamp Build 3516. The other in_mp3.dll from the previous Winamp Build 3512 didn't do that. Many other members had reported that, too.

    I want to give You 2 links now:
    Did you find a bug in Winamp? Can you reproduce it? Let us know, we'll try to fix it as soon as possible!

    While Winamp is closed, go the plugins folder and replace the in_mp3.dll from Build 3516 by the in_mp3.dll from Build 3512.
