Maybe I should have put this in the Questions forum rather than Bugs because it seems as though this problem isn't specific to MusicBee. For example:
1) when starting a youtube video, the audio will sometimes cut out after a second or two. But if I arrow back a few seconds in the video timeline, then the audio runs though fine.
2) On Microsoft's Groove Music application, sometimes, a second or two after starting to play a track, the audio cuts out for moment, but then it kicks right back in.
On MusicBee, the audio doesn't kick back in. It stops and then the application errors out, as noted.
