  • winamp not resuming music on restart

    im using the latest version of ride runner, and winamp 5.xx. music does not automatically resume playing everytime pc boots up. what to do?

  • #2
    of course it does... when its asked too... resumemusic=2

    also... we need to know more about your system.. HORM? or normal
    how about exact version of winamp, RR and maybe your OS

    also... we need to define what "music" really means, i guess in this case u mean
    winamp... mp3... audio_player

      if being asked to is an option in RRconfig, i think mine is not saving its settings then. im suspecting that on many reasons.

      ah yes, system:

      aopen mp915-b
      look at my carputer description in my avatar side. i dont remember what all i have in there :P

      no HORM, its Nlite'd XP, winamp v5.55, latest version to download (from last week), music meaning the kind of audio winamp can play. it shuts down completely, no hibernate. takes like 3-4 min just to resume!

        look in rr.ini for
        resumemusic=
        set it to 2
        resumemusic=2

        3 to 4 mins to boot? resume, OUCH!!!!

        as long as ur shutting down, winamp should save the playlist

        rr, will save resume.ini

        and that is used with resumemusic=2 in rr.ini

        to play music...

        do a simple test

        start RR, go to audio_player(music/mp3) and play some music, now
        exit RR with music still playing
        then restart RR, does the music play where it left off when u exited?

          right now without anything changed, it resumes playing when i close/open RR. its just when it shuts down. i dont recall if it resumes when i restart (start>restart). ill find out tomarrow next time im down back in the car.

            sounds like something isn't closing properly

            cause a restart, should close RR cleanly, if it does not, it wont resume!!

                close RR with MUSIC PLAYING

                restart windows

                      did u try that last test?

                      i dont think u mentioned it, when rr starts up after your "restart" is the play list intact?

                      remember, RR must close cleanly, for a resume point to be saved, and WINAMP needs to close cleanly for playlists to be saved, course RR does ask winamp to save its current playlist before rr exits... this all has to happen before windows shutdown...
                      hopefully u didnt mess with windows shutdown procedures

                        yes, the playlist is intact.

                        i havent messed with the shutdown procedures. that sounds like it is in the coding, and that is beyond me.

                        oh, just re-read your previous post, i didnt close RR and restart the computer....brb, ill try that since im not feeling lazy.

                        yes, the music does resume.

                          ok, so i dont get what the problem is...

                          no, u can change how windows shutsdown, ie how long it waits for applications to exit
                          could all be something in nlited xp

                          so how are u "restarting", should sounds like RR isnt closing, before you restart

                            i just click on restart. it looks like it forces RR to close cause it hangs for a second or two

                              where is this "restart"?

                              is it in RR?
