  • FLAC-Support in Winamp 5.9 RC1


    today I updated my Winamp-installation on Windows 10 from Winamp 5.8 to latest 5.9 RC1.

    MP3-files play fine, but it is NOT playing FLAC-files correctly, which were previously working fine too.

    I am sorry, but it has been ages since I last touched my Winamp-installation.
    I can't remember, if there was native support for FLAC or if I had to install a FLAC-plugin.

    At the moment there is no plugin loaded at all. When I open a FLAC-file only strange sounds come out the speakers. The song-length is not shown correctly, seeking is not working and so on.

    Do I have to do anything to get FLAC working again?

    Thank you

    FLAC playback works fine for me with Winamp 5.9

    Native components:


    The LibFLAC library is now statically linked inside in_flac.dll
    The installer should delete any instances of libflac.dll found in the root/Plugins/Shared folders.

    Please could you post your Winamp Info Tool log

      Thank you for the information regarding the Winamp Info Tool.
      Attached you should find the Winamp Info Report inside the ZIP-file.

      I do NOT have a the mentioned files "Plugins\in_flac.dll" and "Shared\nxlite.dll".
      The file "Shared\jnetlib.dll" is present.

        Run the 5.9 installer again.

        On the "Choose Components" page, make sure FLAC is selected.

        It looks like you previously unchecked everything under: Multimedia Engine => Audio Playback

          Thank you - Problem solved!

          I find it strange, because I did select "Previous Installation" as type of install on purpose, to keep everything as it was.
          I am sure, that WMA, MIDI, OGG, FLAC and WAV for example were working before and I don't think I ever unselected any of those in the previous installation ...

            Good to hear it's now all fixed :-)

            Previous Installation is supposed to just read from an existing install.ini in the installation folder.
            Maybe it's broken? I'll take a look...
