I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if this is a bug. This is my first attempt at using Previews so I don't know if this happened in prior releases. I'm running MM V4, B1464 Lifetime Gold portable install on a Synology DS410. I'm using all URLs - not mapped drive. This occurs from runing MM from my main XP Professional, SP3 system or from my W7, SP1 notebook.
I successfully created a Preview that has 231 songs. The Preview parameters are Start Time= 0 and the End Time= 20 seconds.
To play the Preview, I selected it from the Media Tree which loaded it into the "main window". Play Now was not selectable at this time from the Play menu so I went to Edit and Select All. Now Play Now was selectable, so I chose it and the Preview started to play and each song played for 20 seconds and the value at the end of the seek bar showed 20 seconds.
Now here is where the problem occurs. If I try to rate the currently playing song with either setting "Stars" on the Now Playing window or by using the shortcut keys the following happens:
1. The updated rating is shown by the "stars".
2. In the Player the time at the right of the seek bar changes from a length of 20 seconds to the actual length on the "non-preview" song.
3. When the song gets to the 20-second point the seek bar and running time continues past 20-seconds, but the 20-second Preview keeps playing over and over.
4. At this point neither Pause or Stop will stop the playing of this 20-second Preview. The only way to stop it is to exit MM.
I looked in the online MM V4 Help and didn't find any information to solve this problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
