I've updated to Winamp 5.57 and it crashes when playing my WV files. Previous version (5.56) worked fine, both MPC-HC and WMP play these files with no problem. I tried clean Winamp install and latest Winamp Essentials but the issue persists. I also made a post about this at Winamp forums: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?s=...threadid=315498

I also found that it doesn't happen with all WV files, only with some albums.

You can download the song here (I chose the smallest one smile.gif ):


Any help would be appreciated.

I also got an e-mail from a user this morning reporting this issue, and he claims that it only happens with WavPack files that have the "genre" metadata tag set. Can anyone else verify that?

I'll upgrade to 5.57 and see if I can reproduce.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention... smile.gif
