here is a copy of my itunes xml file i hope you can find something in there!
well i can tell you this much. it is definitely something in the xml file that makes it crash. i am investigating. get back to you as soon as I have an answer
ok lets give this build a try and see if it works
edit: forgot to reset something so while it would launch it would not work propperly I have done that now and this build should now work
ok that build did work. thanks for the help
Not a crash, but a report of a bug. When in music module, space bar will not trigger the highlighted item.
Example: Tab to Album, down arrows to album name, space bar will not reveal tracks but clicking with mouse does.
yes sir that is true. it has been corrected in the upcoming 6b. space will now act as a click. still no binding for a "double click" however so there is no way to play an entire artist catalog without a touchscreen or mouse device.
I have discovered a fairly critical bug that has gone undiscovered since it was introduced. so prolly back as far as release 3 or even farther.
I would have discovered it sooner but since I don't have a carputer yet I only use NBB for short term testing.
Anyhow the meat of the situation is that the music module will completely hog the CPU by rendering the visualizer even when it is not on screen and even when no music is playing. (I can't believe that nobody has complained about or noticed that one yet)
I have fixed this in release 7 which will see the light of day very shortly. NBB will now only peak at about 10% CPU usage while music is playing (on an intel core 2 duo 2.16)
Now I am looking for volunteers to help me test these things in the future. they will receive special non release builds periodically but are expected to fully test them (ideally by actually using them as their FE for long periods) and email me back with feed back regarding performance over time and bug reports
please PM me or email (email@example.com) me if you are interested and can accommodate my requests for being a tester
Downloaded the app, unzipped it. Ran it. Icon bounced a couple of times and no cigar. Please find attached my crashlog.
Hope it helps!!
