Album List for Winamp

Frequently Asked Questions

here you will find answers for some of the frequently asked questions

Will Album List be ported to Winamp3?

Short answer: 3 - No

The playlist is not sorted properly, why?

That's probably because some/all of the ID3 tags do not have a correct track number entered.

Solution for v1.43:
1) Fix the ID3 tags, -or-
2) Add the following to plugin.ini in Winamp's plugin directory so it sorts the files by filename.

[Album List]
al_sortname=1

I pressed the close button on the Album List window, how can I show the window again?

Bring up Winamp's menu and at the bottom, you will find an entry called "Album List". From there you can show and hide the Album List window.
