  • Commandline size limit

    There seems to be an artifical limit on the size winamp can take as it's command line, I looks like is is around 1000 chars. .net apps can handle 32k so winamp should too. Attached is a test batch file [saved as .txt as the website doe snot applow me to upload a .bat file., you can see the truncation in the playlist even if the .mp3 files do not exist.

    I won't run this code but I will try and help. Please provide a screen shot of the problem.

      I just tested running Winamp at the command line with over 1000 characters and it worked fine.

      In a rush though and suspect Windows may be internally parsing the switches as one.

      Out of time. Hope this helps.

        That this has anything to do with the fact that WInamp truncates data from e.g. tag field GENRE - i.e. when it something like [I guess] over 255 characters it starts to display >>(...)<< at the end?
