vpsaxman i know its buggy but the issues with the skins i reported are correct. and i don't like being called a liar.. by anyone as i don't lie.

but anyway here is what i've got so far and no debug log has been triggered by them
execpt the crash when switching to the micro player.

each and every mm 3 skin mine or others, does not work with any of the no album art images.
each and every mm 3 skin mine or others, does not use the main player as the full screen player it uses peke's default no skin, skin
each and every mm 3 skin mine or others, does not use the micro player with or with out the micro popup in the mskn file but after adding the pop up to the microplayers mskn file i did get some timer numbers to show.
the back ground image seems to be trying to show pekes default no skin, skin layout of the buttons for its micro player
but its using all images as dark gray on black and no controls at all this does show a debug report panel i've sent it in before. but it does not seem to be found out the cause yet.


each and every skin mm 3 and mm 4 does not start videos from double clicking in the listview area, it will start the video
but then it will also stop or pause the video? requriering you to click the stop button then the play button to have it play.


each and every mm4 skin installed with mm 4 will not use the mini/ float player it crashes mm 4 / locks up all but mouse
and windows system and puts the alert of canvas can not draw on the screen.

mm 3 skins at one time did show the float player in mm 4 but i have not tested it yet so it might not be working anymore either.

all above errors are on mm 4.0.0.1342

MM4 is buggy right now. I've had problems with resizing MM, minimizing / maximizing etc. I don't think it has anything to do with skin compatibility. It's just because it's a buggy alpha version, as expected.

I have more than one skin, and I do have other skins where there is no micro player popup. They work fine in MM4. Anyway I never called you a liar, I just said your statement wasn't true.

the micro player popup is hard coded in your micro player's mskn file. i don't have the popup stuff for the micro player in my mm 3 skin. and it won't load so therefor the above of my last post is true don't call me a liar again.

edited in.

okay this is getting really strange.

now not only does it not change to the microplayer in my updated mm 3 skin but now in your default vitrous skin the float player is not showing up it locks mm 4 and then shows me a canvas can not draw error?

i did nothing to your skin.

i did how ever put the popup in to the micro player in my skin and all the no album art images. which they don't show up either?

i'm begging to wonder if the all the new no album art images for mm 4 have to be the same size as yours.?

but why the floatplayer now is not working in your skin is unknown? and why the microplayers refuse to show in my skin
is unknown.
well now it shows it will continue playing the song and showing the count down on the timer. but the background and the buttons don't show up and the switching to it crashes mm 4.

the main theme and player work. and i believe the float player work. but the micro players don't work and crash mm 4 every time.

i've found out why.

some one for got to tell us that the micro players in mm 4 will be needing the pop up notice included in the micro players mskn file.

and it looks like there might be some name changes on images in it also? not sure on that one.

mm 3 skins other then that will use the main player for the video player. some of us are trying to get a mm 3 skin ready for mm 4. but until the stable version is out and the errors of the skins ironed out i'd not call them compataible just now.
That's not true, the microplayers in my skins are working fine for MM4. Anyway the microplayer popup isn't a new feature, that was already in mm3.

Are the MediaMonkey 3 skins compatible with the 4th version, or they have to be optimized?
Thank you for your answers in advance!
Yes they are compatible. however there might be certain visual glitches (like in the tabs) since they aren't optimized for version 4.

Is there a clear walkthrough of the new features somewhere so we can test them all and get the most off this new version?

No, the current Alpha release are only for feedback on scripting issues. The current Alphas are know to have many bugs, but have been released so addon developers can have an early peak at changes and give feedback on any parts that are broken.

Once Alphas are released in the Beta forum it will be open for feedback on any and all bugs.

The intent is not to test MM functionality generally, but to fine-tune any script-related issues that may have been introduced, or to raise the priority on any scripting functionality that you feel we've overlooked for this release.

Same here.
But only for music related videos for the moment.
I like how you can have the video shows inside the art panel.
So you can have a playing queue with audio and video without MM switching views all the time.

rusty just released what he said is most likely the last developer testing version.

so yes the bugs for most part after the christmas break might be started with the new up coming public testing versions.

but bugs that effect the script authors should have always been reported. as this was for them to test their scripts if they could not have tested them. then we would still be looking for a long wait on the public's testing versions.

glad rusty is feeling good about this now to release it soon as a public beta version. :) 8)

i think i said some place i would not play videos with monkey. well I Changed MY Mind. this beta version is great with videos so i'll use mm 4 to play my videos now instead of wmp.
