hello dimitri the music browser sometimes hangs again. the same thing is hung at 11 thousand searches, that at 5 thousand, that at 20 thousand, it does not have an exact number. 2 of every 5 searches remain frozen, although this time the radioboss is not paralyzed as it happened in previous beta 6.3 versions, please review it. All the best
 
Chema Rivas came out and after 30 minutes Chema Rivas came out again, he was with another artist. In the protection it is marked multiple artists separated by , & , and, etc. and does not seem to respect too much. you have to review

I don't know if this is intentional, but it irritates me a lot. If I don't have RadioBOSS open maximized, it stuck to the taskbar. It can be moved left and right, but not up.
Looks like it's a Windows "snap" feature, when window sticks to edges. Try moving it up a bit more and it will unstick.

I report a bug in the beta. When I remove all the items below the timestamp, it shows me this error. it's annoying because it makes the program restart
Thank you, we'll check why this happens.

Can you please provide more information about it? Also a screenshot when it "freezes" will help. Do you mean when it's "loading..." and the process stops at some point? If so, sometimes you can wait a bit and it will continue.

Can you please show how the other track's artist field looks like, with two artists?

t is the same artist chema rivas. Although at times he has also happened with multiple artists. I will capture multiples when it happens and let you know. Protection seems not to be fine

It stopped at 18154 tracks and it doesn't happen as it says that it resumes later, it has been stopped for more than 10 minutes and it doesn't resume, so it stops the search. Although it does not happen as a previous problem that the entire Radioboss was frozen. in 6.3.0.5 the search stops without giving results.
The search stops sometimes. every 3-4 lookups the error occurs

I relaunch the same search and now it runs and shows results

Dimitri, I could see the possibility of viewing the Tracks according to the type of radioboss configuration file. If you select tracks, all the indicative tracks, publicity, music are mixed. Could you put the types of files below tracks? I give you an example Show record entries --> Tracks --> Jingles or Advertisements or Music or canned program files ( all types we have in file types previously added to RB ) it's possible ?

Tried this, but doesn't work as expected. Try it yourself by dragging the window up and down. It does only affect RadioBOSS windows.
 
auf win 10 Pro ist alles OK

Danke für die Rückmeldung! Das scheint dann ein Problem unter Windows 11 zu sein. Vielleicht hilft Dmitry das bei der Reproduktion des Problems.
Thanks for the feedback! This seems to be a Windows 11 problem then. Maybe this will help Dmitry reproduce the problem.

I installed it on a Win11 just to test and it works perfectly for me!
 
Maybe you have a problem with the video driver, try to change it
Since only RadioBOSS is affected and all other applications (OBS, various games, graphics programs, browser, office applications) work as intended without exception, I'm not going to start tinkering with my graphics driver.

Maybe you have a problem with the video driver, try to change it
Just had the opportunity to observe the same phenomenon on Windows 10, though not as severe. Whenever you push it to an edge or corner, RadioBOSS gets stuck there. On Windows 10 it is relatively easy to move the window again, but on Windows 11 it is much more complicated.

Conclusion: If the problem can't be reproduced, I'll just always run RadioBOSS maximized so I don't get upset about it. Not a big deal. :D

To debug this it's important to see when the other file was repeated and what Artist field contained for this file.

It stopped at 18154 tracks and it doesn't happen as it says that it resumes later, it has been stopped for more than 10 minutes and it doesn't resume, so it stops the search. Although it does not happen as a previous problem that the entire Radioboss was frozen. in 6.3.0.5 the search stops without giving results.
We were never able to reproduce entire RadioBOSS freeze, but in this version 6.3 this part was reworked to work faster and better. I'm not sure why it still stops. Do you use any 3rd party antivirus (Window Defender is OK)?

I give you an example Show record entries --> Tracks --> Jingles or Advertisements or Music or canned program files ( all types we have in file types previously added to RB ) it's possible ?
I think, yes. I'll add it to the requested features list for the future versions.

I do not use any Antivirus outside of Defender included in windows. I'm going to try disabling it to see if it resolves and I'll keep you posted. thanks dimitry
