    Hesitation/temporary freeze

    Has anyone experienced this? When using frodo for music, once in a while it will freeze on any track, sometimes eventually come back...other times...stays like that until I reboot...any ideas?

    Did you check the cpu usage when it freezes...I'm kinda getting the same problem on certain mp3s. Checking the cpu usage shows like 95-100% cpu usage, thus causing a temporary freeze.

    man, this is really starting to annoy me.

    basically, any time there's any visualization...the system grinds to a halt. it also hesitates at the beginning of songs too.

    WTF?

    btw...just checked cpu usage in Windows Media Player 10...guess what? 95-100% with visualization on. Winamp 15-25% with visualization. Centrafuse 70% with visualization.

    It must be something set up wrong with WMP10 (which is was Frodoplayer uses).

    Nope...going back to 9 didn't help the problem.

    I noticed though, the problem seems to occur when switching from dir to dir sometimes. Say I'm in the Cake dir, playing a song, switch to the Pearl Jam directory and start another song, the cpu will go up to 100%. But if I switch out of the Pearl Jam directory to another one the cpu will go down again....then if I switch to the Pearl Jam dir again, start the same song, the cpu level will be okay. Weird

    I wonder if it's a database thing? I keep trying to sync/build my database and everything seems to go okay. But then when I come back into settings 1, it says "0" in the database. Frodobaggins any thoughts?
