[Bug] Avast IS 5.0.377.0 crashes Winamp when using Shoutcast
« on: January 23, 2010, 02:01:50 PM »
Avast IS 5.0.377.0 crashes Winamp when using Shoutcast, even if I turn off all the protection it still crashes. I uninstalled Avast and now Winamp soutcast runs without any problems.

This does not happen when I use Avast 5 free so it must be the firewall in IS.

I´m running on Windows 7 x32 Ultimate.

I second this; Winamp crashes when Avast IS 5.0.418 is installed as soon as any shoutcast source is opened. Deactiovating any shield or deinstalling firewall component doesn't help, only total wipe of avast.

The only problem I have with WinAmp is Shoutcast tv plays upside down--the picture is upsidedown.

I'm using avast! Free 5.0.418.

WinAmp 5.572 Full

unfortunately it totally crashes Winamp once the first song starts (the song plays until the CLOSE button in the error dialog box is hit), I am not even able to debug.

No problem on my system.  Winamp 5.572 for audio only.
GomPlayer for all video.. also no problems.
