Radio stream and internet connection.
« on: 18 Aug '21 - 16:06 »
Hi.

I'm listening to Internet radio with XMPlay. Sometimes the internet is out. Music playback stops during the interruption. The program usually works as an icon in the tray. When the internet starts working again, when I double click the icon to start the music again, the program crashes. How can I solve this problem? And when the internet outage is over, can it be automatically connected to the radio broadcast?

If you haven't already done so, please first try using the latest XMPlay version:

   www.un4seen.com/stuff/xmplay.exe

If the crash still happens with that then please upload a dump file for it. You can generate a dump file using the ProcDump tool. For example, run "procdump -e -ma -x . xmplay.exe". Then ZIP and upload the generated dump file to have a look at here:

Thank you.

I tried for a couple of days. There was no crash.
(Previous version: 3.8.5 - New exe: 3.8.5.28)

Could the autoreconnect feature not be working?

I checked the settings. But when the internet outage ended, I couldn't get it to connect automatically.

Good to hear that the crash seems to have gone away.

Regarding auto-reconnects, XMPlay won't try indefinitely. By default, it will only retry once, but you can change that via the "ReconnectAttempts" XMPLAY.INI option. For example, adding a "ReconnectAttempts = 10" line to your XMPLAY.INI file will make it try 10 times. It will wait 1 second between retries, but the actual interval may be greater depending on what the problem is, eg. whether the attempt fails immediately or times-out.
