    What are these .patch files and how are they used? I've just been taking the .zip file and replacing current files with the files in the .zip - is the .patch file required?

    Hi Jeditrav :)

    The patch files are only useful to you if you compile MP yourself.
    Read all about our patch policy in the wiki.

    Finally got it going. Turns out, in the config, the 'Window' has to be set to 'My Music Genre' to get it to work in Database view. Perhaps, 'My Music Genre' in the window listings should be changed to 'My Music Database' to avoid confusion.


    I have the 'Jump to' setting as 'Now Playing (if multiple items)'. If nothing is currently playing & I press 'Record' with an Album highlighted to add to a playlist I'm working on, then it jumps to the Now Playing screen, but with nothing playing. I can see something similar happening if I have something playing that is not part of the currently being worked on playlist. Perhaps the 'Jump To' setting should not apply when 'adding to playlist'?

    Ah yes and indeed that is something that we would like to sort out in 1.3. This is a handover of old code and the screen is actually called music genres (and shares view is called music files). We have cleaned this up a lot to remove some redundant windows (this is what was breaking your remote config) but the names you see are based on the name in the code so we can not change that without a lot of code changes. We are planning to add a nice name in 1.3 so it will show as "Music - Database Views" or something that will actually make sense

    Yeah it should not apply when adding to playlist. I will look at this tonight

    Has anyone reported a crash in the music player 1.20b? While in the middle of a song I can occasionally have a Windows crash dialog appear and the song repeats the last 5 seconds over and over. I've checked the logs but don't see anything related.

    Clicking the Close button appears to close mediaportal but it's still loaded in the processes, and need to use Task Manager to kill before it wilkl reload.

    Can I help debug this?

    Hello,

    I'm not very firm with those trunk/SVN things, but do I see rigth that the changes are already in the current SVN, except the new Action?

    :)

    The last patch (plus a little tweak) is in SVN now (including the action) :D

    This forum is under the Support forums. If you mean up one forum then I will do that.
