Error in playback of MP3's By: MrData Date: August 10, 2007
Good evening all, and He,
I recently updated to 2.70 and although I appreciate the onboard MediaPlayer, I get a few hickups during use.
It halts on an empty string in function
playit_runtime.innerHTML = WMPlayer.controls.currentPositionString;
If I cancel my debugger, the program resumes.
Your thoughts are appreciated.

I can't seem to reproduce this behavior. Although I'll check the documentation and find out what can cause such behavior, Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.
Play It feature workaround By: MrData Date: August 15, 2007
Afternoon He, and reader,
I've tried uninstalling and re-installing version 2.7, but the bug remains. Whenever I click an audio CD, I get 4 error messages (all intercepted by my Visual Studio debugger) before the CD starts playing. Always 4.
Judging by the reactions to this post, I assume this is a local problem on my PC, and no-one else is having this problem. Which probably means it's not high priority on the bug-removal list.
So I created a small work-around which is working for me (again).
I re-started using the 'File Listing' which always contains a .m3u file. Whenever I click that file, my MediaPlayer opens and plays the complete album. This also resolves my issue with playback stopping when changing items in the library. The onboard MediaPlayer ActiveX unloads itself, but the regular MediaPlayer keeps playing.
I've written a small program in VB that creates a .m3u file for every folder in my Music root folder. It automatically copies all folder content to the clipboard so I just have to <CTRL>+V the correct information in the Files tab of the detail pane.
As all my MP3's start with (##), I've instructed the program to rename all m3u files to '(00) ...', so the playlist is always on top.
Should anyone have any interest in this small program for creating m3u's, please PM me. It's still very much in beta, still in Dutch, but for me it worked like a charm. Within 30 minutes I've attached all my 400 MP3 folders to the items in MediaManager.
Just to let you all know.
