Hi Macarena,

I'm testing this with build 1482, and cannot replicate. Are you still able to?

If yes, can you generate a dbgview log while running jing as you trigger the bug, and send us both the log and link to the video?

Thanks.

confirmation: The unexpected behaviour still appears in the recent build 4.0.3.1476 RC.

description in few words: Pasting a picture into the AlbumArt works fine, if the picture is loaded from the filesystem (File Properties -> AlbumArt -> Add...). But MM hangs if the same file is copied into the clipboard and "right-click empty AlbumArt" -> Paste is selected.

Any suggestion, what should I test?

Cheers, M

I am experiencing the exact issues Macarena describes.

update: adding the same file (picture) via "Edit AlbumArt properties" > Add > select Image File... works as expected: the AlbumArt is added without delays. The AlbumArt was previously saved to disc, instead to the clipboard. M

Another video, with the debug log was posted, please. link: http://screencast.com/t/KhjDRIulIQh This time it was an average album: 5 tracks, MP3, around 40mins in total. Nothing extraordinary, IMO. Any ideas what should I check further?

Dear devs,

when I am able to post a debug log, I paste the link to this forum and topic into the message body. are you able to link the debug-log to the problems described here?

Sending a debug log is not always possible: If I switch to another window when the error dialogue has popped up, the error dialogue is not available anymore after switching back to MediaMonkey. The window whites out and MM continuous not to respond.

Dear devs,

a debug log has been created an sent (the message contains the full URL of this forum topic). The video from that time window is placed here: http://screencast.com/t/VWdGHKhqzAY (no voice commentary)

This time only two ca. 400MB files were in the album. The behaviour was identical: pasting AlbumArt, choosing AlbumArt properties, MM stops reacting. After about 10minuts, the debug window pops up, and I can send the debug. After another ca. 10minuts a new debug lo wants out (sent, too). (If I switch between windows already when the send-debug window is active (e.g. to copy sth), the send window will be not responsible after switching back. i.e. I had to have the message in the clipboard, just to paste and to send.)

Let me know, if I am any help, or what else I can supply to solve the problem successfully. M

Macarena,

I'm unable to replicate as well--I tested with both M4A and MP3 files with albums containing ~50 tracks, pasting both to Tag and to folder.

Best would be if you could generate a video and a debug log.

Thanks.

I am happy to create a video or generate a manual debug log, but this have to wait until the weekend. I apologies for the delay.

Try to generate debug log as described here: (see item 4b) viewtopic.php?f=6&t=341
And also try to catch a video to demonstrate this, maybe we are doing somehing differently.

I have to correct my answer. MM asks me: The window with the AlbumArt-type and embedding appears. Only after I press OK:
- MM freezes, and I cannot work with MM anymore
- it plays the current song to the end, and then it repeats the last 3-5 seconds all over again and again
- eventually, the debug (send error) window appears, but it freezes also before I am able to write anything or click sending OK. (next time I just click OK right away. I promise :) )

This appears on pasting a small and normal sized JPEG into Album with 25+ tracks. I tried albums with <15tracks or single tracks and everything works fine. Then I tried 25+ songs (25 tracks, 120 tracks, and 600+ tracks in one album). is that a high number of tracks?

And yes, MM was supposed to ask me.

Because there is no such option, a confirmation window always should show. Try to restore down the MM window (ie. not maximized) so that you could see if something were to pop up behind the window.

positive.
build 1448, WinXP, installation portable onto an external disc. What other information should I supply?

I remember, it worked a few weeks ago, with an earlier version. M
