After having MusicBee open for a few minutes, the a/bum artwork in the Now Playing list docked on the right-side of my window starts blinking. It doesn't stop until I close and re-open MusicBee.

can you send me a link to your settings file (help/ support/ view settings)
also i assume this is something very new, so have you changed anything recently eg. new plugin enabled, change to the layout, etc

I sent you my settings file. I can't think of any layout changes that I've made recently, however I was a little behind in updates until the latest release candidate came out. The only thing I can think of is I was messing around with the DirectX dlls to try and get MilkDrop working in Windows 10.

i am not able to reproduce this after 30 minutes playback using your settings. Its a very strange issue. I will need to give you a debug version so can you confirm you are happy to run a debug version and if so i will prepare one

I realized that it begins after I edit and save the properties of a track. But sure, I will run a debug version.

Also, I don't know if this is a separate bug or could be related. When I restart MusicBee to stop the flickering, sometimes I get this error.




See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

could you run this debug version/ unzip into the folder MB is installed:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/2dsdgao442cp50c/MusicBeeDebugNP.zip

and when it happens send me the end of the error log (help/ support/ view error log, entries in the last minute of occurance)
keep of copy of your existing musicbee.exe as this will produce a large amount of logging data

I realized that it begins after I edit and save the properties of a track. But sure, I will run a debug version.
just saw this. Tracks in the main panel using the tag editor and just one track?

thanks for sending the error log.
Its as i suspected, its the Advanced Tag Tools plugin where you must have some auto-update rule defined. The plugin appears to be repeatedly calling the panel refresh multiple times per second. I guess its somehow got itself in a loop.
I suggest you report it to boroda74. This is the relevant information for him:

Code
at MusicBeePlugin.Plugin.refreshPanels(Boolean immediateRefresh)
at MusicBeePlugin.AdvancedSearchAndReplacePlugin.AutoApply(String currentFile, Plugin tagToolsPluginParam)
at MusicBeePlugin.Plugin.ReceiveNotification(String sourceFileUrl, NotificationType type)

I can do something to reduce the flashing but there is still a fundamental problem that needs addressing

Thank you. I didn't even know those were on for auto-update. I will let boroda know but I can just turn the auto updates off.

actually thinking about this, i think its something myself and boroda74 need to figure out together as it appears there is a feedback loop going on between MB and the plugin

I downloaded his latest plugin and it doesn't look like it is happening any more.

just for the record, i put in handling for the flickering. Its still useful for when you update files using the tag editor and have an artwork oriented layout displayed.
