wacup freezes on specific files - build 7236
« on: September 05, 2021, 09:16:18 PM »
Hi!

Today I noticed that Wacup has been freezing when playing specific files. I have attached a mp3 as an example of the album on which I have this problem. All songs from this same album have been freezing wacup, maybe is it how the file was encoded? Is it possible? ???

I already played the same files with other music players as AIMP, QCD and WMP and had no problems. Only Wacup freezes.

Does anybody have this kind of issue also? :o

I can replicate a lock-up when trying to access the file. Will have a look into what's going wrong & thank you for providing the example file!

I've now had a look & it's an issue with my in-file lyrics metadata parsing (the double brackets at the start was causing the problem). Will get that resolved for the next set of builds.

yes! I've just cleaned the "extended tags" with Mp3tag Editor and now it works fine!

thank you! ;D :)

example of the problematic string on extended tag

"[[Found by LyricsFetcher
Source: LyricsPlugin
Date: 2010-03-06 14:30:03]]"

for people with similar problem, just remove the "[[ ]]"

Or wait for the fixed build :) At least you've got a solution until then.
