Hey guys. Just came across this error today. Thought it was a bit odd (see attached image). I'm guessing it's something to do with the unicode support? I did a search of the forum and couldn't find it anywhere.
(This is the audio browse screen after clicking one of the WA browse options)
##EDIT Just tried the locale options & still having problems
Car : Ford Focus Zetec 1.6
Carpc :Lin-ITX Plus 7" touchscreen/Toad 8" roof screen
Morex 3688 case/M2-ATX PSU/Commell V-672 P4 3.2Ghz/1024DDR2/40GB 2.5" SATA HDD/Sony DVD/CDRW

Honestly, I've just tried the media library here (the -- Artist/Album/Genre -- options) and even with my test unicode files it worked just fine. What version of winamp are you running ? Could you try a different one and re-scan your files from the winamp library ? Let me know.
I just got in for the night (midnight) and I 4got to check what winamp I'm using
I'm probably using one that's a month old... (5.33/5.34 ?) I tend to chuck the latest on with half the cr@p stripped off it (linein, waveout)
I'll go rip out my hdd and have a look 4 ya's.
##EDIT: Yup, it's 5.33... didn't that version have issues with unicode? *does a search*
##EDIT2: Nope... 5.33 was the first with unicode ML...
Ok... Just did what was suggested in that post about the encoding... now to test...
##EDIT: Nope... not working...
Ok, that's weird... My carPC doesn't have the ML options there... but my homePC does... Is there a option to turn that on? *asks while searching*
Both are using the latest RR.
CarPC is running WA 5.33
HomePC is running WA 5.35
##EDIT2: Me being me was in such a rush that I 4got to update the ML on my carPC
Both are showing the tag garbage...
Have cleared both MLs... Done the unicode encoding trick... re-added the files in ML
Any other suggestions?
It's 2:30 AM... I'm ticked off that no matter what I do, I can't get it to work. So I'm going to bed, and looking at it 2morrow when I wake up...
What I've done:
1)Cleared the ML
2)Removed unicode in tags
3)Added files to ML
Run RR... No-Go
Changed system Locale (in windows cpl) from english(AUS) to english(US)
Did 1-3 again... Still no-go.
Changed locale in RR to Western, System, Europe, and anything I thought I could read :P
Tried all of the above with WA 5.33 & 5.35...
What am I doing wrong?
If 5.33 is the first version of winamp with UNICODE ML, I have to add support for it, that's all... I did not think ML was going to support unicode at all.
I thought it was something I was doing...
for spotting that amongst my mess of posts
I'm working on it for next release.. I just want to be sure it will work with both the non-unicode & unicode formats.. but there's something 'funky' about the new media library format.
sweet... I was thinking of changing to an older release of winamp, but I'll wait for the next release since you're working on it
cheers quino... you're the man
