LagKonijn Posted April 15, 2009 Share Posted April 15, 2009 Some people are having trouble, opening two (or more) winamps, at the same time. Here is a quick walkthrough: In windows: start->programs->winamp->winamp Then, find the 'winamp menu' icon (looks like a sinus with a horizontal line in it), in the upperleft corner of the winamp player. Click it. Goto options -> preferences -> general preferences (version 5.541 that is, previous versions might be slightly different) make sure 'allow multiple instances' is checked. Then, start another winamp, again with start->programs->winamp->winamp It will start at the exact same position as the first, so drag it somewhere else. You now have two winamps running, side by side. I always change skin on one of them, to prevent confusion. Be carefull when doubleclicking mp3's: if winamp is open, it does not open a new winamp, but plays in the first winamp it finds (often busy broadcasting). Instead, open mp3's from within winamp, or tell windows, to open mp3's with a different program (rightclick on a mp3, 'open with', 'choose program', choose another player, and check the 'always use the selected program to open this kind of file' option), to prevent this from happening. When you have 2 (or more) winamps open, you can tweak the dsp-plugin of each one. (This behaves a little strange: Once I click 'Configure active plug-in', It wont show up at first (minimized/stuck), but when I release the focus away from, and then back to winamp, it suddenly shows. ) This way, you can have 2 (or more) winamps open: one for each broadcasting channel, and perhaps some, to listen to your channel(s) yourself.
