Can you please Elaborate a bit? Any repro steps?

[Edit by Rusty] a debug log might be helpful for this.

Strange... Let's ignore the sync problem for the moment. Please let me know what you find once you're set up again.

Did you do a USB sync or WiFi sync?

This was all on 341.
Sorry for the confusion, I tend to use MMA in the car and was sitting at my desk I was trying to walk through what I do..

I have 3500 songs synced
My playlists (with duplicates) add up to 13000 songs..

On most days I just hit the play arrow above all the playlists and let it add them to now playing in what seems like shuffled order.. Songs I listen to more appear in more playlists ( most played, highest rated, plays over x times) and therefore appear more often in now playing, so I get a mix of songs I've been listening to a alot with some songs I forgot about ..


I wanted to go through and redo the post this morning, but my database corrupted after my last sync. Media monkey opens and my playlists and tracks are gone and I usually have to reinstall and resync. The last few versions just kick off a media scan and rebuild, but my ratings won't be there and the playlists will be really off, 20000 songs instead of 2000...
I have logs from android tuner of when this happens.. It will usually log a mediamonkey error about an sql statement erroring out a certain line and then a note about database corruption..


II'll sync tonight and repeat what I did.. right now I can add 3500 without issue, buts a library that doesn't have any stats from MM..

Can you provide more detail?

i.e. did you again 'play all randomly' for the 13,500 tracks in the playlist? And the Now Playing list only ended up with 3607 tracks instead of 13.5k? What happened when you tried to advance beyond track 3--did playback just stop?

Also, what build number was this on (341 I hope)? Can you generate a log ID ?

OK.. I'll start adding it..

I let it finish indexing and am just adding all tracks from the tracks section.

It force closed first time.. I repeated and it looks like it finally made it .. 3607 songs..

I couldn't advance past three songs..

Closed out

trying again.
its taking long to switch between songs.. asked by android if I should wait after progressing to 4th.. song started playing in background so I said yes
I got to 4.. but now it won't advance..I can go back to the previous 4 but it says has 3607 in the list..

LogID is shown on the log submit screen.

How do I know the log ID.. I've been putting my username Bettertthan74 in my descriptions.. I sent a few today..

I uninstalled and cleaned up my phone so I could test fresh.. here is what I get with 339

1. Adding all playlists to now playing using the button at top right of playlist list..
It starts to add. Can't really interact with MMA as it does..
After 30 seconds first song starts to play.. Can only listen, count of songs under total song time starts to increment.. at 10000 at about 1:30 point
at 2:00 min its at 220000, it should be 13500 total, It finishes at 24319 and is working after 3:30.. I don't know where the other 10000 are from..

Interacting with now playing list may play one song, then force close and sends alog

Reopen MMA and hit play. MMA locks up, no song plays .. Eventually force close..

At this point MMA is reindexing my phone, my plalists are gone and its adding songs as I watch. I'm assuming my database is corrupt now. Usually when that happens it won't open and I can see the SQL error using the log reader in android tuner.. its acting like it a new install for now

This should be fixed in build 338. Can you confirm?

On 335 it looks like the behavior has changed. If I add all my playlist no more stopping but it takes minutes as noted.. First song may begin to play during but you can't advanced till it's done adding.. And now it only plays first 3 or 4 songs.. It closes out to my list of play lists if I try to advance more than a few songs... No error log

I'm on build 331 and have the same issue with large playlists. It will lock up for 2 minutes or longer. Once the list is built and I go to play it, it may take another 2 minutes to start playing. I can pause immediately, but any restart or skip song gets the long wait.

I'm saying playlist, but this is the random play function under tracks. I have 10,320 tracks on my phone. I've not noticed this to be a problem until this release.

Galaxy S4
Android 4.4.4

I'm testing with build 330, and am:

1) Not seeing any slowdown when adding multiple playlists to:
a) Now Playing
b) A new playlist

2) Not experiencing any crashes when I:
a) Add tracks to playlists
b) Add tracks to child playlists
c) Add playlists to child playlists
d) Add childplaylists to other playlists

Can you clarify and post any of the log IDs (we get hundreds of logs so unless there's a link in the forum / bug report to the log, it's difficult to match it up to your bug report)?

Sure.. If I have a playlist playing (300 songs ) and add one more playlist (3300) songs.. it add pretty quick..
If I try to do the same with multiple lists.. all under 200 songs.. it takes a long longer.. sometimes triggering the app has stopped responding dialogue

something else I just noticed.. I have a few playlists nested...

if I added them from the top level( decades) no problem..
if I go in and click on them individually to add.. its sending a debug log and giving me the mediamonkey has stopped error..

it just sent you a few logs..
