Hey Guys, I'm having two problems with MusicBee. And then a question.
1) MusicBee will merrily play for a few hours and then spontaneously pops up a window that says the sound device is locked. The only way I can get it to work again is to kill it and restart. It is playing on a laptop running Windows 7. That laptop lives in a closet and is dedicated to playing music through the house. Point is, there's no user actually using the computer when this happens. Seems to be completely spontaneous. And yes, I've rebooted the machine. Any ideas?
2) I have a directory called "Playlist" that I stream from off a Linux server. All is good there. Then, before Christmas I added the "Xmas." directory so it would play randomly from both Playlist and Xmas. Well now I cannot remove Xmas. I can go into the UI and uncheck the Xmas directory and it no longer shows on the main screen, but then when I restart MusicBee, there it is, right alongside Playlist again. Any ideas here?
And the Question. Windows Media Player constantly pops up, wanting me to run through it's wizard when I use MusicBee. Is this normal? I prefer not to use Windows Media Player just because I don't like having my metadata sent back to the M$ mothership.
Now I know someone will ask what version MB I am using. Good question! I don't see where that's shown, but I did update to the latest just before Christmas.
