I also have a small collection of videos ripped from YouTube, home movies, etc. Some video thumbnails would be nice (a'la WMC). Is there a way to generate them in MP2?

Update: I am now getting video thumbs. Not sure why I wasn't seeing them before!

Second update: I am also now getting image thumbs! I swear I didn't change anything, but I am now getting image thumbs for almost all my folders. Some still wont display. Maybe they will generate after more time.

There is now a new weird bug though.

If I have a folder with the right number of images in it to exactly fill the "grid" as far as the right hand side of the screen (in my case that's 8 columns of thumbs) then selecting any thumbnail in the 8th column makes MP2 crash. If there is less or more than 8 columns, it doesn't crash.

    Can you try the library view (which is generally better to use). I have possibly an idea what could create the crash.

    You are right. On screens with 8 columns of thumbs, in library view there is no crash if I select the thumbs in the 8th column.
    Unfortunately my images are not that well organised, so I really need to use folder view :(

    Reason is, that the folder style has a thumb layout and images a square layout. Before scrolling the crash happens because of not enough margins.
    @Brownard
    Any good idea? The folder style is common independent from aspect of other covers. The crash is probably created by smooth scrolling margins. I’ll try to fiddle a bit around tomorrow with the margins, if you do not have a better idea.

    Hi, can you post a set of debug logs showing the issue (see here for how to). When you say it crashes, does MP2 actually crash to desktop or does it just lock up?

    @ge2301 are you able to reproduce on the latest 2.2 build?

    Hi Brownard,

    I enabled debug logging, triggered the crash and then collected the logs. I hope they are helpful.

    By crash, I mean I get a Windows dialogue box saying he program has stopped working - see screengrab.

    For info, I installed MP2 on my Windows 8.1 tablet today as client only, and I get the same error.

    I have updated the "steps to reproduce" in the bug report thread after noticing that the image folder that caused the problem also has to contain a subfolder, as well as 8 columns of thumbs.

    As this has now been recognised as a real bug, probably better to move the discussion there?

    There was no change obviously related to it, but maybe something as the fixed user management or similar made it.
