Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Converter with Winamp input support?

I'm trying to find an audio converter program I once had which I remember supporting winamp input plugins.
I might have uninstalled it or maybe a newer version dropped support for this.
Does anyone know what program this was, or what older version had this functionality? I can't seem to locate this again.

The XMplay player ( used to support winamp plugins and had a converter option. Not sure if that's what you were using.

I currently don't know about any converter application using winamp plugins, but I'd look if the format that you want is supported by foobar2000, since that supports many formats and also has a converter.

Oh, yes, I use foobar as my main and really sole player, and also as a tool to manage, covert, etc.
It's just that sometimes there are unique and abandoned functionalities and odd formats only really supported through a winamp plugin, or stand alone specific players without much or anything in terms of built-in conversion.
I just something nice to have handy when you "need" it.
I didn't really get to use that thing much when I had it, but I'm pretty sure it was a batch converter and not a player.

I do know about XMplay, but I don't think that was it. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it was something else.

OK, it's fre:ac but it seems it has to be the 32-bit version. That's the one that has a winamp adapter component in the "decoders" section. The 64bit version doesn't seem to have that.

That's to be expected, because applications cannot use a dll which is not of the same bitness.

Some applications have workarounds, but they are not trivial (basically, it means having an additional application of the correct bitness that runs hidden and which communicates the information back an forth to the one showing the controls to you)

I was convinced that it had to be fre:ac, but, having a 64bit version of it now, when I scoured the whole config dialog and didn't find anything related to Winamp, I got confused and started wondering whether it might have been some other program.

In any case, it is solved now, so that's good.
