Using vgmstream r680, when I play a WAA file from Beyond Good and Evil, it seems to play fine at first, but when I play another track using vgmstream, it simply pops and ends. A whole playlist of them does this in succession.

Can you name a specific file that does this (both the original WAA and the "another track")? Does this happen if you drag one file, then the other, onto Winamp, without having played any other tracks first, or is something more complex required? I tried here with r680 and was unable to spot any failure.
And maybe pick up a newer build and see if it's still an issue.

Could be that your memory is full and there's not enough memory to create the directsound buffer which happened with me. But it's not specifically for waa/wac/wam

I made a workaround on the Beyond Good & Evil meta, not that it wasn't ok, but it was a mess... i have no problems with the playback either!

i had a similar problem with winamp a while ago, i just installed a clean copy and it worked.

This only happens in XMPlay with the Beyond Good and Evil files, as far as I know. The files always play normally in Winamp. Other file types I've tried in XMPlay work like they always have. The BGE files used to play perfectly in XMPlay, so something must have changed.

Memory doesn't seem to be the issue. I use the files from the BGE "00_Home" folder to test.

Tried r690 in XMPlay. Same issue. It seems to happen after playing a WAM file, actually.

vgmstream is a winamp plugin
as such, it works in winamp

XMPlay is vastly superior, no matter how reluctant everyone is to switch. But don't confuse the issue.

The plugin used to work perfectly in XMPlay. Now only a certain format supported by the plugin has problems.

All formats used to play perfectly in XMPlay. As such, vgmstream should work with XMPlay.

I've only just converted to Winamp in the last year, I don't want to have to convert again lol.

Plus I have too many Winamp only plugins. (I dunno, can XMPlay use Winamp plugins, and does it look the same?)

SmartOne: If you can take the trouble, could you please go back a few versions and try to find which apparently broke .waa/.wam? If we can narrow it down to a range I can start looking for what caused the issue.

Everyone else: I'd appreciate if the XMPlay/Winamp crap ceased.

Sure, I'll take a look.

r489 and r510 glitch differently, if that helps at all. Instead of all W** files cutting out after some number of plays, in these old revisions playback recovers after skipping a few files.

It's possible that by chance I never encountered the glitch, and these files never played perfectly.

Found another glitch. We Love Katamari, 117 King of King's Song.MIB skips in r690 but not in r450.
