    Winamp 5.52, build 1800

    1) Re: Fixed: [in_mp3] Ultravox streaming metadata stack overflow (Thanks: Secunia)

    This minor .x release is ostensibly a security patch, which was brought ahead of our usual release schedule. New features and Known Bug fixes etc will resume as normal in the next release.

    More info

    Note that ALL previous versions of Winamp 5.x & 2.x / in_mp3 are affected :-)

    2) Re: APEv2 tag support for MP3

    Winamp/in_mp3 will only read from/write to existing APEv2 tags,
    but will not create new ones from scratch.
    The config items for this feature were not implemented in time for this release.
    For now, you can enable/disable this feature by editing the relevant values in winamp.ini

    [Nullsoft MPEG Decoder]


    Tag read order priority = ID3v2, APEv2, Lyrics3, ID3v1

                Hi team,
                firct, thank you for the new vewsion. Any and all updates are acknowleged and appreciated. I have a question about APE tags. They must be important for the DEVs to spend time implementing the ability to read and write them, but I am wondering if people actually prefer the APE tag to ID3?

                  Whats new in Bento skin #118?


                  • #10

                    APEv2 tag support has been on the wishlist for years.
                    The main reason for us adding support was that certain other players at some point used to write APEv2 tags by default, and also wrote ReplayGain values to APEv2 tags instead of ID3v2.

                    People would then come here asking why Winamp wasn't seeing the RG values.

                    Well, it does now. So now there really is no valid reason for using a 3rd-party mp3 plugin any more (eg. in_mad provides support for APEv2 tags).

                    There's a link to the 5.52 Wasabi Changelog in the first post.
                    I'll leave any further Bento-specific changes for Martin to report...

                    @LouCypher & YUTARO
                    It'll just be a relay server / cache issue, and should resolve eventually.

                    If not, try adding "gdownload" into the url, eg.

                        There don't seem to be any skins included with either the full or the pro version. All I get is the classic skin. I've uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.

                          Make sure "User Interface Extensions -> Modern Skin Support" is checkmarked in the Installer Options.

                            Yep, that was the problem. Somehow, that was unchecked. Just out of curiosity, was that option moved in the setup?


                            • #15
                              Yes, iirc, prior to 5.5 it was a separate root item in the options tree.
