    Hello,

    I was watching a video playlist yesterday with my laptop, with media on a USB key and using client/server mode.

    After the first video ended, I had the surprise to see a blue screen flashing before the second video starts, I assume it was the default skin background.

    It does not happends every time, but in 5/6 videos I watched, I can remeber at least 3 flashes.

    It's really not a big problem, it's just unpleasant to see.



    Partial log of the last transition between 2 videos where the background was displayed is attached.

    Cheers.

    Up and changed to "Bug" as I saw this one again.

    I'll report new logs and steps to reproduce ASAP. I'ts definetely the skin background displayed between 2 videos of a playlist.

    Cheers.

    Ok so here are some steps to reproduce :

    1 - Add at least 2 videos to a playlist, start the playlist
    2 - Watch the movie or step forward to reach a point near the end of the video, wait for the second video of the playlist to start
    3 - Stop the second video

    Repeat steps 1 and 2. Now between the 1st and the second video, the background is displayed less than a second.

    It's not related to background manager plugin as I can reproduce this issue with the default skin/theme.

    Please find attached logs.

    Cheers.

    Smeulf.

    Could you please test this again?
    Seems like it is fixed here after player rework.

    Hi.
    If you use a Video Background this happened every now and then also. Simply stop playback of current Video and MP2 sometimes will show the selected Video background for a second or two before go back to menu. But I can not reproduce this on a regular basis. Seems to be random...
