Dead bug playing entry

Post by Garcia1A »

I sent an mp3 file from WMP server to MM4 and it played, and I got the art in the now playing window. The summary/title info was apparent random characters, and I hit play on MM4 and it locked up hard. Got a new laptop that had a DLNA controller on it, and was doing some testing. I used the WMP on the laptop as a server, and MM4 on my desktop as a render target. I noted that even after shutting down the controller on the laptop the mp3 was still available

I believe that dlna reads ahead. I had a situation where I was watching a video and continued watching for a while even though MS had installed an update and rebooted my server.

Yes, this is normal. MediaMonkey by then may have cached the whole file, most clients read ahead of playback position, some load full file prior to playback.
