Google Talk is Crashing when Changing Status to “Show current music track” using Winamp 5.5

Winamp is my favorite music player with classic theme. Winamp is very simple music player. I’m using winamp for MP3 and online radio streaming player. I wanna share my winamp track status in GTalk but it getting hang. Please follow the steps below to resolve the issue:

  1. Exit Winamp and Google Talk
  2. Open notepad, keep blank document. Note: you must run notepad in administrator mode (right click and run as administrator in Windows Vista).
  3. Save the blank file to %PROGRAMFILES%\Winamp\winamp.m3u or %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\Winamp\winamp.m3u for x64 OS.
  4. Open Winamp and Google Talk again.

Now, you can change your GTalk status to “Show current music track” without causing hang.
