Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #18916 (April 18th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #18916 (April 18th 2024) (x86 only)

NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

Yes, did notice the upgrade, glad it's still maintained, very useful.
And I finally managed to build my Home Assistant interface  :)

I agree, it is a great control extension to WACUP.
Been using it for a while.
You can also use it remotely via WAN if you have a VPN.
Just need to create a corresponding profile.
The app developer @mveroukis is still active and keeps the app updated.
The only things I would like to see added are :
   - ability to queue files (JTFE)/ manage queue
   - sort files by date.
Happy new year! :)

Thanks for the feedback.
For now I have put studio.xnf as read only; it seems to lock size and position; it won't lock window enabled/disabled but not a major issue as it is quite simple to toggle if needed. Should be a good fix for now, thanks again.

here's what the 1st issue mentioned above looks like
queue is usually bottom left and all 3 unwanted windows appear on top of each other, I just moved them slightly.
This is still happening after resetting studio.xnl

Thank you Darren, it did work  :)

just PM'd you a copy of both files.

The other display issues I have:

1- if I restart WACUP a few times, the queue manager windows is eventually disabled (windows not showing anymore and checkmark in preferences is gone) and all of a sudden Lyrics, Waveform seeker and Big clock windows are all enabled without me changing their state (originally disabled). No clue why this happens.

2- If I change screen resolution, windows positions/sizes can get all scrambled and I have to redo everything once back to my usual resolution. Is there a way to completely "lock" all windows states/position/sizes so it can't be changed automatically no matter what happens (unless user does changes it via preferences)?

Thanks for your support, much appreciated.

Using latest release and can't get rid of a "ghost bar" which just appeared under the main window.
see gray bar below between player and playlist
other windows will dock around it like if it was part of the window.

I've tried just about everything to get rid of it, restarting, changing skins and options, opening/closing drawers, etc.
It won't go away....

Using modern-Christmas does work so it's directly related to the standard Winamp modern skin parameters.

Any advice on how to get rid of it or troubleshoot?


Thank you Darren,
glad to see the command line feature back, and my ability to beta test :)
looking forward to testing the latest versions & changes.

should upgrade in the coming weeks.

Hopefully the freeze feature should solve my Video window resize issue.
Any plans to add this feature to modern skins? Worst case I'll use classic skins.

Is a new API still on your list of features to implement?

Thanks again for all the great work on WACUP.


The option added a couple of beta builds back to freeze classic skins windows positions goes a long way toward satisfying the reason for this request. Thank you for adding it.

I don't use WACUP to play video files, but I assume the related improvements in this area are also appreciated.

At which version was this option to freeze classic skins windows positions added?

just curious as I'm still on 7236
(Loading files via the command-line was removed starting from this version;
waiting for it to be reimplemented in the new WACUP core... unless it's been done, haven't checked recently... guess I should  :) [size=78%])[/size]

+1, following.
Been having issues with the video window suddenly resizing even though "resize video window to fit video" is disabled.
This would be a potential workaround until I find the root cause or the issue is fixed.

I guess what some organizations dont understand when acquiring software is the user profile of people actually using the product and their motivations/expectations.

I'm pretty sure most people still using Wacup/Winamp don't give a **** about funky marketing crap and new logos. But a number of us care about features/functionalities and developers listening to users, not marketers.

Also, I'd bet that a lot of us still use it because we want to have control over the media we listen to, not the other we around:

" artists and audio creators we're all about giving you control over your content. We'll help you to connect closely with your fans"

Wow. No. you don't get it... I dont want you to connect with me, I'll let you know if I want to...

And yes some of us like "Blobby gradient experiences" 😂 , thanks Audrey. But we like it fast and CPU/OS efficient. Don't spend your dev time and money on something which already exists (Its called Milkdrop Audrey...)

Oh man... Another streaming app coming...



If the "new" Winamp is as slow as the "new" Winamp website, I wouldn't be too concerned...

Glad this could help;

Fyi, my approach is actually to set a hotkey in the file remover tab which deletes the currently playing file and another hotkey to move the currently playing file to some "approved" folder.
I then load a playlist/folder of files to be auditioned and simply delete/approve files as they play.

"Preferences - playlist - file remover"
Is what I use here; can even delete file while song is playing.
As per your use case, I use it to cleanup my "auditioning" folder and quickly move songs to the correct genre folders.
Actually a benefit vs classic Winamp.
