Video Window Position Not Saved (#7236)
« on: March 13, 2021, 04:04:18 AM »
I have my video window sized to the same as my album art (refer to other threads with attached images of my setup). I have the settings to open@video playback and close@video stop. If I stop and replay, the video window has relocated and parked itself at the bottom of the screen. Same if I exit session and start new session.

There's no need to bump & it'll be looked at once I've finished triaging & fixing what I can from the initial few days worth of crash reports before I then look at the non-crashing issues.

geeez, been using wacup since you put it out there and never a crash. wtf are people doing w/this app ?!?!?!?!?! (you need not reply, just venting)

(oh wait - I did have that single issue a few weeks back and you promptly addressed that with a simple 'delete 2 files' fix [thx again], so, I don't really count that.)

Press F5 in a modern skin one too many times and you'll have the engine throw a hissyfit (don't actually do this, please)
I made that one skin that one time.

It's quite easy depending on what's being done. Modern skins definitely are more likely to experience an issue due to bugs in the plug-in responsible. There's then behaviours that block the main ui thread & trigger the unresponsive handling (some of which has been resolved e.g. drag+drop a massive folder onto the main playlist used to do that).

There's also issues from some of the other 5.666 plug-ins that are still being used like the local media library plug-in (ml_local) which does weird things at times with it's importing or in_mp3 & it's metadata handling & so on. There's then anything I've introduced with writing new code like 7170 would lock-up when adding files from the browse folder & a title update was also requested which never appeared from beta testers but showed up under the preview build once you have more people using things.

Most I don't think ever have an actual crash issue but if I ignore such things then we end up with what was leveraged against Winamp proper for many years of it being buggy / unstable which was completely true until more focus was put on resolving such things around 5.64 - 5.66x when those public builds also included the beta builds crash reporter (something that should have been a priority much soon).

So be happy you're not having issues & be happy that for those who do & for whom I can understand from the crash report what's going on that I take dealing with crash reports as a higher priority to try to give a good experience as no one likes things crashing & sadly there's still more for me to do to improve things which will come as more gets replaced (ignoring the dips when new code comes in at times).
