Cannot use an external player

I've set up Madsonic 6.2 on Windows 7 and it is working fine but one thing is bothering me.
I've added an external player with playlist (Winamp) in the "Players" settings section but when I choose it, it works just once for a given playlist, the next one I choose (or the same one) Madsonic creates a new "web player" and starts playing in the browser instead of generating the .m3u file which is what I'd expected would have happened. Other than that, streaming from Winamp works just great.
Is there perhaps a workaround for this annoying issue? Thank you in advance.

Still no advice? Hm, maybe a new release will fix this issue. I hope so. ;)

no advice here, but I too encountered strange things with those players. I had 4 playes for admin and about 5 for another user in the player-dropdown, but never created/changed a player for those users. dunno, why there are so many players...

So I guess, it needs some work/love/development to work properly (as we expect it to work).
