Gapless playback
« on: January 26, 2012, 01:26:54 PM »
Hi Alex,

for me it seems that the new feature with gapless playback sometimes causes problems. In fact, I sometimes encountered the problem that Winyl stops responding (looping the last played few seconds) when moving from one track to the next.

When i restart Winyl switching between the same two tracks is no problem. So i don't think the problem is caused by the specific tracks.

Happens from time to time.

Thanx for this great player!:-)

Are you using DirectSound output? If no, try with it.

Hm.. I cannot reproduce this bug. You say Winyl stops responding, is it mean not responding at all or only for a while?

Also try this test version http://vinylsoft.com/download/test/Winyl(TestGap1).zip
Unzip to program folder and run Winyl through Winyl(TestGap1).exe

Thanks for your fast support!

It stops responding at all. Clicking anywhere then causes a crash.
And, sorry to say that, it happens with your test version, too. :-(

I'm starting to play an album, then after playing some 3 or 4 tracks (without any interaction of me) it stops working. It's not always the same tracks. So i really don't know what causes the problem.

Using Windows 7 Enterprise x64.

What did you change in the test version?

It happens to me also. I upgraded today to 2.8.5, and since then I cannot play more than 12 or 13 tracks. The player simply gets frozen. I'm also using DirectSound.
I'm attaching here screenshot of the last time it happens. You can see that Winyl appears twice in the "applications" tab, and only once (as expected) in the "processes" tab.

Here a test version with logging - http://vinylsoft.com/download/test/Winyl(TestGap2).zip
When Winyl stops responding, open Explorer and type in the address line %appdata%/winyl
In this folder find and send me Log.txt file.

Thanks, now I know where Winyl hangs. Tomorrow I'll see what's wrong there.
