  • Annoying error - Nullsoft waveOut plug-in v2.3

    i keep getting an error when opening a track from explorer while one is already playing...

    Nullsoft waveOut plug-in v2.3

    "Error closing sound device."


    the message looks like this, and to get the track to play i have to click OK

    anyone know a way of stopping this??

    This error is caused by bad soundcard drivers.
    Try updating the drivers from the manufacturer's website.

    Other things to try:
    Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Plugins -> Output -> WaveOut -> config
    Change "Output Device" to your soundcard driver.

    Alternatively, switch to DirectSound Output instead of WaveOut:
    Prefs -> Plugins -> Output -> select (hi-lite) DirectSound Output

    If the problem persists, please include relevant system specs:
    PC Manufacturer, CPU, Soundcard, Windows OS, DirectX version
    Also include some Winamp details, eg. version #, a list of any 3rd-party plugins you may have installed, plus what file types you're playing at the time (eg. mp3, wav, midi, wma, cda, etc)

      nice one, thanks

      you wouldn't happen to know why my sound goes all grimy and lo-fi when i'm playing games (worms armageddon/quake etc.)??
