Author Topic: Hangs looped at certain titles within a playlist  (Read 6474 times)

Sometimes XMPlay doesn't switch to the next track, instead it loops the present track .. never ending, while the rest of the playlist plays fine :o . This seems to be the case with tracks that have an abrupt end (like a broken download) or distortion right at the end. Maybe the concerning files have error sectors at its end - I don't know (I'm speaking of mp3 files).

Does anyone else observe this?

Regards

Is your loop button on 'Auto-Loop'? That loops mp3 files too, when there isn't quietness on the end of the file.. Your case sounds pretty much of that.

Jacer,

thanks very much, your tip seems to have solved my problem :) . On the default skin it's hard to see which mode you've switched on. Also the documentation on the guide site wasn't that clear to me and maybe I have confused it with 'loop list'. I'm new to this player and I'm impressed with it's functionality and (small) size.

So far I see one drawback in the windows management (at least with win98se) as I just described in the thread "Minor issues...": the fact that XMPlay in big window mode cancels other applications 'always-on-top' attribute.
Perhaps this will be solved within one of the next releases or I will have switched to XP and will see how that will work ...
