Crash with simultaneous audio players

Post by Eric_Taquet » Thu Sep 14, 2017 4:31 pm

Hello,
Can somebody tell me what's wrong in this test stack ? Or if there is an issue in LC 8.1.6 with players ? Link below for download.

I need to run two players simultaneously AND asynchronously. Both with mp3 audio files.

It's the first time I must use simultaneous players. It always crashes. I looked on the net for some help or a note about issues, but found only something about gaming with LC in 2009 ! ! ! Here is my test process:

Manual starts :
-- start player 1, wait some seconds and start player 2
-- on my mac, the second player runs less than a second (I can sometimes hear the beginning), then LC always crashes and I get a crash log (see below) !
-- no problem if starting each player alone !

Replacing the mp3 files with wav ones : crash
Starting the players with a script (see the button) : crash
Setting their visible prop to false : crash
set the dontUseQT of player "MP3.x" to true | false : crash

I use LC 8.1.6 on a MacBookPro 2017 with macOS 10.12.6

Any idea ?

You can download the test stack here (with 2 mp3 + crash log) (1.8 Mo) :

Bonjour Eric,

nothing wrong with your stack and/or scripts, looks like a bug to me, since it also crashes LC here on my Mac!
Please report it here: http://quality.livecode.com
Thank you!


Best

Klaus

Hallo Klaus
The bug 20467 (Crash when starting 2 simultaneous audio players) is now fixed in LC 8.1.8 RC1 !
It works now as I wanted! Great!

Now I can go further : could you take a look on my post on the "Feature Requests" forum about
"a new player property : audio output device"
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=30125

Perhaps could you have a workaround for this other problem ! I'm waiting for your answer on this other forum.

Thanks
See you soon on the net !
