Notes


The Pro & Full installers are the same for this release (No OpenCandy/Emusic/AOLSearch/Toolbar).


This is the best release of Winamp ever, imo, but let's just hope & pray that it's not the last...


However, this will be the last AOL/Nullsoft release of Winamp :-(

See the download page for more info.


A big thank you to all our users, former team members, beta testers, moderators, translators, skinners,

plugin developers, preset & color theme designers, community members, everyone... for everything...

Known Issues


Some mp3 files might cause Winamp to crash.

If you experience this issue, then please use in_mp3.dll from build 3512 instead (Info | Download).


Weird black pixels on corners of Bento & Modern skin notifier. Fixed png files available here.

Selected Test Results

What works

v5.21: Installation. You need mozilla activeX controls. It will try to autodownload and install but that may not work sometimes (laggy server). It also downloads and installs windows media format tools. Choose the classic skin the new skin won't work.

To actually play audio you have to go to preferences -> output -> waveOut -> wine wave mapper .

To play streaming media from URL's you need to cat the http://whateverIP:wierdPort from the .pls file (e.g. from shoutcast.com).

SECKZY VISUALIZATIONS!!! AVS works and you can stretch the window to full screen but full screen doesn't work properly (the visualization doesn't update frames in full screen mode).

For some reason the mp3 sound quality is better than in native linux audio players such as mplayer, vlc, xmms, amarok, xine, or totem.


What does not

Media library, full screen visualizations, new skins, .pls and m3u file parsing from web servers (didn't try loading one from the disk), playing videos (e.g. wmv's).

Workarounds

What was not tested

winamp tv (media library didn't start so I didn't test)

Additional Comments

I've been waiting many years for this to finally work.

HowTo / Notes

Optimal Experience 5.56

For optimal experience using application install the following DLLs from winetricks:

-comctl32
-directmusic
-directplay
-directx9 (Overkill but helps in the long run)
-gdiplus
-ie8 (For web browser functionality)
-mfc42
-vcrun6

OR run:
winetricks comctl32 directmusic directplay directx9 gdiplus ie8 mfc42 vcrun6 

If you use the modern skin you might need to enlarge the main window for the media library to show up.
