    Having upgraded to the latest release, I must say things have been very stable and much improved. - Well done.

    The only problem I have is with navigating my music files. If the view is set to anything but list view browsing is very slow, can take 5 secs to next page and clicking through the icons has a delay of about 1sec.

    My configuration is:
    Folder structure: \music\%Album Artist%\%Album Title%\*.*
    90% files are mp3 10% wma. 15,000 tracks total
    All mp3's have embedded art of various sizes from 64x64 upto 400x400.
    All tags are set with Artist, Album Artist i.e. Coldplay, Various Artists if on a complation cd. (I use tag&rename for all tagging)
    Each album folder contains a folder.jpg
    Database built with default options
    View is set to icons by artist.

    I have tried changing my skin from X-factor to Blue3 but with not much difference.

    I'm thinking my problem is with the folder.jpg size or the embedded art size.

    What are the recommended settings and artwork sizes to achieve the best performance?
