    online videos freezes MP. to reproduce:
    atempt to play a video (I use the site "watch-series" or "watch-movies")
    this movie takes a long time to load (buffering a lof more than is set in the settings) (some work fine but some have this problem)
    press esc
    the video stops loading but mediaportal no longer responds (though task manager does not say "not responding")
    the only way to continue as far as I've found is to kill MP with taskmanager.

    I already wrote an autohotkey script to kill MP when it becomes unresponsive, very uesfull but doesn't get round this one as it does not detect it as not responding, although MP does act that way.



    I can try to get some logs later, its just a bit in peoples wy when I want to go colecting logs and reproducing problems rather than just restarting and trying again (which generaly works although inside watch-series I would select a different source)

    on a side not is it normal that when I set it to buffer 1% in the online videos settings it almost never starts playing at 1%, usualy just a little more?

    I've had my share of these too, especially with hosters which do not cooperate...
    Offbyone did some fixing, and haven't had a hanging MP since (running svn version). So be patient 'till the next release.

    Same here. Happens very often with the new release.

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
