RideRunner / Winamp issues
Everytime I try to play mp3's RideRunner will freeze up after about 20 seconds of play then reset. Once reset I have to shut down and restart to play songs. This only happens with music that plays through Winamp. If I listen to HD Radio or Sirius I have no issues. This all started when I un-installed Winamp and reinstalled it to a non-default location. I noticed in RRConfig that the Winamp location is one of three options: Auto, Manual and the third one (forget what it is because it doesn't pertain to my setup). I tried manual and browsed to the location of Winamp 5.13. I close config and start RR. No music, no playlist. I close RR, open winamp locally and the playlist is there. So I close Winamp, open rrconfig and change it to Winamp (Automatic). I save, start RR and voila, I have music playing. But 20 seconds later it freezes up almost like it's trying to load another RideRunner session. Then it closes and the playlist is gone. Here's my setup:
I have a 30Gb Solid State hard drive partitioned to a 5Gb non-writeable (EWF) and a 25Gb writeable. The 5Gb has XP with minlogon and EWF. The 25Gb has media and 3 programs installed to it. I have Winamp, RideRunner and iGuidance 4 installed to the writeable drive so I can save where my music stopped when I shut down and also save destinations and POIs in iGuidance. I originally had winamp installed in the default location but I couldn't save where my music left off on shut down. It would always revert back to whatever playlist I had when I disabled EWF and saved my system. After un-installing winamp and re-installing on the writeable I un-installed RR and Void (the skin I use) and re-installed them. I made sure RRConfig pointed to the right directories. All was working for a few days then the freezing started up. That's when I noticed the different choices for Winamp locations in RRConfig. I tried different sking to include the one that comes with RR and I get the same result with all of them.
