In simple terms;
Reading a compressed digital file from a fast storage medium, means it does not risk pausing or stuttering the music due to having to actively scan the whole file at the same time as playback.
Temporarily the player is reading 2 parts of the same file at the same time.

With an audio CD you have large full uncompressed audio on a slow device, thus risking a massive delay with processing.

I think the only sensible way to have waveforms for CDs, would be to have a way to scan the CD before playing, like the way the volume levels are done.

You will have to compile your feeds into a single feed using an online RSS aggregator.

The DSP side of things is being reworked but many old plugins work well.
It is useful to report any bugs you find with old plugins, as it does help with knowing what to support or fix if the problem is in the old Winamp code.

*cough* Also useful is providing a link to plugins you are referring to, so others can confirm the same results.
http://sqrsoft.com.ar

As it seems active I think you should report your bug in the newest version to them, and perhaps suggest they also checkout WACUP as the active continuation of the Winamp project.
A new core means new plugin possibilities so maybe they will be able to make use of new features as available.

It still uses linein the same way.
Open the "Play URL" in the file menu.
Use "linein://"

Or use the more advanced WACUP capture settings in the prefs panel

Change the settings in the AC3 plugin to stereo.
make sure you have the newest version https://sourceforge.net/projects/ac3filter/files/winampac3/

As the title says there is, there is.
However you seem to be mixing a statement with a question.

Are you saying there is one, or asking if there is one ?
If you are asking then no not really.
Some album art is exactly square and some rectangular, hence the album art popup window can accommodate any ratio you have.
The size depends on the resolution of your display and if you prefer to see it at 100% scale, or scaled down from as big as you can find.

Me I opt for a large high quality image in the folder with the name cover.* or front.* or folder.* or the album name, and if I embed them I use medium sized images usually over 512x512 saved as JPG so they don't bloat the music files too much.

I don't understand the benefit of converting MP3s to a lossless format.
The quality won't be better as the damage is already done, and you waste a lot of space.

@Mits WACUP does have CUE support but not as a playlist.
Open the wave display for a file and if the CUE file is there you should see names and dividers.

General Discussion / Extra plugins you may need

WACUP is very complete but there are a few extra file formats and input/output solutions you may need.
NOTE: Wacup already plays Shockwave Flash SWF files, so don't bother looking for a plugin.

Instructions say you need to install Realplayer or Realplayer Alternative.
You can use the Media Player Classic standalone RealMedia splitter instead.

OFR OptimFROG lossless audio input plugin by Florin Ghido.

Weird MPEG Variants will often play back on regular MP3 decoders, but will ignore extra data.
You may need a specific plugin to hear the extra frequency bands, channels or lossless audio.
You should convert any of these files to a better supported format and disable the plugin after being used.

Sometimes WACUP doesn't swap the device immediately.
You may have to select the one you want then close the player.
It should detect it fine when loading again.

The Windows playback device settings can be accessed by right-clicking on the volume icon in the system tray (see the image).
Unless an output plugin has it's own options for setting the output quality, Winamp and Wacup ask Windows what it is currently set to (including the amount of channels available).

Have you tried this plugin ?

1) This is not the Winamp site, This is WACUP.
2) Please state which version of WACUP you are using.
3) please state which WACUP output plugins you have tried or are wanting to use.
4) What is the quality setting displayed in the playback devices windows panel for your DAC. Make sure Windows is announcing the correct settings.
5) if your DAC does not come with ASIO drivers and support, you will have to install ASIO4all or a virtual audio driver from the VoiceMeeter site.
You will still need to set the desired preferred quality in the windows own playback options.

You are correct, you cannot select more that 1 output plugin.
You currently have the old Directsound plugin selected.
It has a darker background.
