Winamp is pretty stable. If it's highly unstable for you it's likely theres something wrong with your installation.

the Winamp 5.2.0427 Beta build is out!

Changelog:
Fixed: [in_mp3] Lyrics3 tag support
Fixed: [in_mp3] Tracklength reported the same as currently playing track when drag+dropping/enqueuing mp3's
Fixed: Winamp.q1 not created for new users in multi-user setups
Fixed: msvcp71.dll dynamically linked in gen_ml
Fixed: IE7 beta incompatability issues
Fixed some gen_ff freeform skin engine bugs (ref)
Lots of ml_pmp bugfixes (more still to come)
Lots of other minor bugfixes that no-one can seem to remember at the moment
New: Online Services (ml_online.dll) - see main post for more info
Improved: Rip & Burn ui (new logo, icons can be dbl-clicked, etc)
Improved: ml tree icons, and fixed a few skin compatibility issues.

EDIT: DJ Egg elaborated on the new ml_online plugin in the WA forums:
Quote
Online Services (ml_online.dll) - build 427 and later
Media Library > Online Services content is controlled serverside. Please don't report any intermittent bugs/issues (script errors, search not working, etc). Content is still being worked on (gui/features/etc) and should be classed as 'experimental' for now. Use left-click to Play a stream (replaces playlist) or right-click to Enqueue a stream, for now (context menus coming soon).
Note that the old "check for new channels on exit" thing is now gone! Yay!
Also note the known bug (build 427-specific) listed below.

hybridfan: if it's that buggy then why not provide relevant information about the crash, how to reproduce it, etc. No information means there's no chance to even attempt to try to fix the supposed issues you have with the player since funnily enough, developers aren't psychic when it comes to reproducing bugs they don't know about.

Fine here you go, and by the way when it crashes I opted for it to send a e-mail to Nullsoft with a report, so don't think I don't know what I'm doing.

Here is a portion of the dmp file.

@hybridfan: Why don't you search for Winamp support in the Winamp forums? This thread is related to WA 5.2 bugs and features ONLY.

Reinstalling your OS might be a step towards the right direction, since Winamp works for most of us. And since you told that you switched to Apollo, be happy with that. Discussing your problem (you told in your own "Winamp is buggy" thread that you used Winamp 5.13) in different threads in a forum that isn't really Winamp related is a sign that you - indeed - don't know, what you are doing.

Two aac coders from the newest Winamp 5.2 are under test at SoundExpert. The complete set of contenders is:

•   aac CBR@320 Kbit/s (Winamp 5.2)
•   aac+ CBR@320 Kbit/s (Winamp 5.2)
•   mp3 CBR@320 Kbit/s (Lame 3.90.3)
•   mp3 CBR@320 Kbit/s (Lame 3.97b2)
•   SBC CBR@375 Kbit/s (Bluetooth)
•   wma 9.1 CBR@320 Kbit/s

This test will last for about two weeks during which test files of the above contenders only will be available for downloading. Volunteers are invited.

Wow. It wants me to reboot after I finish installing.

Not nice...

Then just do not do it.

It is because it needs that to install the Sonic extraction engine for reading CDs. You don't need to re-boot to just use winamp. I think that you can even rip if you choose not to use sonic but aspi instead.

Have they removed the ability to rip to aacPlus in Winamp 5.2?:

http://www.winamp.com/player/

"Rip/Encode Music into aacPlus, AAC, MP3, and WMA!"

is now only available in the Pro version.

You only need PRO to rip to MP3(Lame) and High bitrate AAC/MP4.
You also need PRO to rip at full speed(otherwise 8x limit)

You can still use Diskwriter for ripping MP3 with ACM codecs, Fraunhofer is fine but Lame may be more of a problem, I find it will extract, but crashes on exit.

...and the Winamp team continues to fork Tagz... If nothing else, their insistence on using their own function names bugs me. $decode, for example, is an exact clone of $replace, with a much more abstract name.

Come on guys. If you're going to keep replicating foobar2000's feature set, at least make it compatible.
