Known issues with Winamp Media Player
Tip: For more technical support information, visit the Winamp Forums.
These are some of the known issues for Winamp:
- If The CD ejects without writing audio files, close and reopen Winamp. If this does not solve the issue, reboot the computer or try reinstalling Winamp. This issue may affect users with the PHILLIPS CDD4801 CD-R/RW burner.
- Static/whitenoise when pausing & resuming playback? Go to: Winamp > Prefs > Plugins > Output > DirectSound > Configure, and checkmark Old style fade on pause under the Fading tab. This issue may affect users with Soundmax onboard sound chips.
- The fullscreen video OSD in Winamp 5.58 (or above) is never displayed? The fullscreen OSD requires DirectX 9 to be present, plus d3dx9_24.dll (Win2k/XP) or d3dx9_32.dll (Win7) or higher. The Winamp installer should have already detected your DirectX version and, if required, either upgraded it or installed any missing files. If for some reason the DX9 upgrade failed, then you can download it manually from the Microsoft Download Center: DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer. We have also identified an issue where the OSD does not display on PCs using the Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset with Intel drivers version 6.13. Upgrading the drivers to 6.14 (or newer) solves the problem.
