    i used streamripper to rip few video clips,, some of these files are played by winamp with no problem ,, while others just won't play.

    the files that won't play are opened by winamp and i can see they are loading till 99% and then nothing happends,, no error message or anything,, i can also see that my HDD is beeing accessed all the time until i click on stop.

    so i tried to add those files to mediacoder (open source encoder) and when pressed the play button it plays those
    "nsv" files fine.

    i am wondering why doesn't winamp play those files,, since nsv is origanly made by the winamp creators.

    using winamp 5.451
