MP is freezing at the end of any song when "Now Playing" is selected. It will play the song until about the last 4 seconds. Then it will freeze and go to not responding in the task manager. Debug logs attached.

    You have a lot of plugins that could be interfering. Please disable all plugins and attempt to reproduce again.
    Other than that, there is nothing obvious in the log files. You could try disabling cross-fading... but after that I'd be out of ideas.

    PS: Lots of threads take longer than two days to get an answer. Also, our music lead developer decided to retire in the last few weeks. A little patience would go a long way. ;)

    Thanks for the reply. I ran it in debug mode to generate the log files which, if I am correct, disables all additional plugins except what are installed by default so I don't think that is the problem. I also already have cross-fading disabled.

    I didn't mean to be impatient. I just wondered if anyone saw my post.

    I asked because it looked like plugins were loaded:

    In case you weren't aware, plugins are only disabled if you run the watchdog with option 1. Option 2 leaves plugins enabled; option 3 exports existing log files (not relevant here).

    I could be wrong. Just seemed odd to me.

    I also already have cross-fading disabled.
    Before or after producing the log files?
    Again:
    [2014-02-02 08:14:08,685] [Log ] [BASS X-Fade] [DEBUG] - BASS: X-Fading out stream D:\music\America\History- America's Greatest Hits\America History- America's Greatest Hits 09
    ...
    [2014-02-02 08:14:12,728] [Log ] [BASS X-FadeEnded] [DEBUG] - BASS: Fading of stream finished.
    ...and that is the last entry in the log aside from PowerScheduler entries.
    Configuration says:
    <entry name="crossfade">4000</entry>
    <entry name="buffering">500</entry>
    <entry name="useSkipSteps">no</entry>
    <entry name="fadeOnStartStop">no</entry>
    <entry name="gaplessPlayback">no</entry>
    In short, it really looks like you have or at least had cross fade enabled.

    Interesting I could have sworn that I disabled it. I may have sent the wrong set of log files because I tried debugging it several times. I will make sure it is disabled and check it again. Thanks.[DOUBLEPOST=1391600926][/DOUBLEPOST]You were right. The problem was the cross-fading. I had disabled the volume fade-out and in instead. Thanks.(y)

    I thought this issue was resolved but it has suddenly come back however the symptom is slightly different. When cross-fading was enabled it would freeze a few seconds before the end of the song. Now it will play all the way to the end and then freeze. If I don't jump to the now playing screen then it works fine. I even tried deleting music database and rescanning, same result. I also ran it in debug mode 1 (titan skin and plugins disabled) and still happened. I am attaching debug logs.

    This is a bit of a guess, but I think I had a similar problem to this and it was due to wi-fi remote. Do you have that installed?
