Thanks. ^_^ I caught the 2.90 release by myself, but I didn't think there would be a new version coming out so quickly. Looks like they fixed some things:

  • Made Winamp not crash if you close it while a file info dialog is open
  • Fixed jump dialogs when using language packs
  • Fixed tooltip in lightning bolt
  • Made video window on autoclose not stop if configured to do so
  • Made in_mp3 have options for adding tags from ml
  • Fixed a bug in in_wm
  • Library: Made library refresh properly on add/compact/etc
  • Library: Fixed a library Win9x view issue
  • Library: Fixed shift+enter in media library tree
  • Library: Added "Explore item folder" in library's media view
  • Library: Made internet radio/tv display msg when reload is blocked
  • Library: Added "Physically delete file" in library's media view
  • dshow: Added config dialog (filetypes)
  • dshow: Added option to vertically flip WMV videos (for machines with old WMV codec installed)
  • dshow: Added file info box
  • dshow: Fixed issues with widechars
  • dshow: Fixed bitrates displayed
  • dshow: Added 32 & 64-bit audio support
  • nsv: Fixed title updating (playlist flicker) bug
  • nsv: Made nsv info box show filename and basic info
  • nsv: Made nsv use less cpu on [p]rebuffering
  • nsv: Fixed MP3 decoder's eating of the end of nsv file

yeah, but if it picks up the schuffle where it left off i might try it out... If for no other reason than i keep all my files in one enormous play list... and whenever i restart the beast i find that i continue to hear the same handfull of songs non stop...


What is everyone's feelings on winamp 3.x?

Why are they updating version 2.xx when they still have version 3.xx out, I have both installed on my systems and 2.81 is the best for me, does the job and I can connect to the DI streams with no problems and the playlists are displayed properly.

3.xx is RUBBISH, download it if you want something that's slow, looks aweful and messes up your DI stream...

Well... i cant stream DI at home (dial up... yay)... so i just use Windows Media Player at the campus labs... I get in here early, bump di for way to long, piss people off with the incessent beeps that come out of the headphones (well, thats what happens when they're set to ultimate Bumpitude) and just catch up on homework... or write menacing letters to congressment...

But yeah... WinAmp 3 sounds like a hunka crap, and untill they can get their acts together withit i will stay faithfull to my old school WA 2.7 (or whatever im on...)



Hyland, DI has been responsible for so many late assignments

Winamp 3.x was never really a finished product, and from what I understand, not much further development is really planned for it. Many features like those related to streaming audio aren't yet supported in it, even using their own tools. Stick to 2.x (although it looks like you already figured that one out...).

yupppp still on 2.81, haven't had a need to change ..
winamp3 skins are pretty, but functionality...not quite the same to me.

i think i tried 2.9 at some point; not sure. all i remember is that for some reason when i tried to sort by 'path and filename' it messed up ..

Uhg... If it isn't the oldschool WMP then i cant handle it... i don't know why...

Actually i do... for the same reason i hate the default XP style... i hate bubbly useless fluffy crap (which is why i have made sure that my desktop on every computer i've ever owned is the exact same style... Cool, blue, soothing, minimalist...

But thats me... and i get angry at squeeze on mayonaise...

I don't like Winamp 3 much, so I stick with 2.x

I'm glad to see some improvements. Also, they've addd the playlist library feature that was only available in Winamp 3 to Winamp 2.91, so that's a welcome addition!
