Hi,

I recently updated Mediaportal 1.2.2 to 1.3 Final. Now recursive Slideshow in random order is not working.

I have the following folder structure:
D:\Medien\pictures\folder1
D:\Medien\pictures\folder2
...

All pictures are in D:\medien\pictures

In Configuration I added the picture folder D:\medien\pictures. In this folder I put a folder.jpg file.
Use random order is on.

I go to D:\medien\pictures and start recursive slideshow, only D:\medien\pictures\folder.jpg will be displayed, then a black screen appears.

The log shows me this message:
[Warn.][PoolThread19(19)]: GUIPictures: Omitting outside path D:\Medien from check share D:\Medien\pictures
[Warn.][PoolThread19(19)]: GUIPictures: Omitting outside path D:\Medien\Bilder from check share D:\Medien\pictures\folder1

If I press the -> right button, the recursive slideshow will go the next folder D:\Medien\pictures\folder1, but slideshow only shows pictures of D:\Medien\pictures\folder1 and does not use other folders like D:\Medien\pictures\folder2.

Any idea?

Thanks for your help.

    Hi,
    I have rework that part, what is randow order option ?
    Here now recursive start quickly (was not the case before on big folder with many folder under it).
    I rework it because music playlist when we have video + picture wasn't handled correctly.

    Can you supply log ?
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I checked it. If I choose recursive Slideshow without random play (auto shuffle), all pictures will be showed OK.

    If I choose random recursive slideshow, only the pictures in the current folders are displayed, than there is a black screen.

    I cleared all log files and started random recursive slideshow.

    There are only these entries in mediaportal.log

    Hi,

    This is a DLL to test, can you try ?
    I can't reproduce your issue but i have see that with or without random option, i can play both folder1 and folder2 (started from T:\-=- Pictures -=-\!ShaolinMonk) in order (when random checked)

    With the new DLL, it play in random for both folder.
    Let's see,
    Thanks.

    Tested, confirmed the bug and can also confirm the above fix is working.

    I've had the same problem, created a thread on 12 March but will close it now that someone has extremely helpfully pinpointed the problem :) - excuse my ignorance but what do I need to do with the dll in order to apply the fix? I assumed it would just overwrite an existing one in the Mediaportal folder but I don't see a WindowPlugins.dll anywhere in either of the MediaPortal directories. Many Thanks

    Hi,

    I copied the WindowsPlugins.dll in folder Mediaportal\plugins\Windows .

    I restarted the pc and after mediaportal starts displaying "start plugins", I only get a black screen.

    Here are the log files:
    error.log
    2013-03-26 14:41:08.176374 [ERROR][MPMain(1)]: PluginManager: WindowPlugins, Version=1.3.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null is tagged as incompatible with the current MediaPortal version and won't be loaded!

    I reinstalled MediaPortal and noticed, that my file WindowsPlugins.dll (and other files like mediaportal.exe) have Version 1.2.300.0 . In Mediaportal Configuration systems shows me version 1.3 RC final.

    Any idea?

    Thanks

    It seems that you are not on 1.3Final or your install didn't update correctly to 1.3Final (that why full log are always welcome).
    If you can put full log after doing that :
    1 - try Full 1.3 installer
    2- exit installation
    3- go to %temp%\MediaPortal Installation\deploy
    Start one by one each installer (if you didn't use TV no need to start package-tvengine.exe).
    It should update correctly your current installation.

    Then you can try MyPicture with original dll and then mine :)
    Thanks.
    Good luck :)

    Hi,

    The dll is in 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Plugins\Windows' folder :)
