Some great improvements, but have so far found the following problems:

1. Instead of importing my old playlist, I added the master folder with sub folders, amountng to 39,000 files, and the system crashed. Overcame this by importing my old playlist.

2. When I load this version, I no longer have my previous playlist in the playlist window.

3. The slider on the right hand side of the playlist has a bit of a dodgy display, making quick scrolling down to the bottom of the playlist very fiddly.

4. When I try the new drag & drop feature from the search window to the playlist, it freezes every time with the message:

Access violation at address 00000018. Read of address 00000018.

The only way I way I can regain control of the system is to hit Ctrl Alt & Delete & closing down the app.

Edy, I do hope you find these comments useful. Keep up the good work.

Regards,
Kev

Hello, thank you for your feedback!

1. I'm afraid that the only way I could reproduce this problem is if you send me a copy of your entire collection, so I could make it fail and find the cause. I've tryed here with our own collection (~1000 audio and video files, including our collection of corrupted, unsupported, and fake files) without any problem.

You could also repeat the situation with the detailed Log enabled (Settings > Log), then take the LOG after the crash (subfolder Data) and post it here. Don't worry if it's big, I'll edit and crop the important parts.

2. Previous playlist is stored in the subfolder Data, so the previous playlist from the Beta is different from the previous playlist from other versions.

3. I agree, that's the Window's default scroll bar. Maybe it's better to use keyboard up-down, page up/page down and home/end. I may develop a new scrollbar in a future version.

4. Works fine here in XP, what's your OS? Also, do you have an antivirus or something that may be globally examining the file paths that are dragged/dropped? (because the file paths are mangled in order to prevent the creation of shortcuts if dropped outside Deejaysystem)

Anyone else has this problem? (crash on drag&drop from the search dialog)

Beta 2 released. It only fixes a small security problem that could cause problems when activating the product.

Yes, same problem here. Drag/drop from search window generates Access Violation requiring end process. It occurs as soon as the mouse leaves the search window.

Confirmed, the problem can be easily reproduced on Windows 7 (no problem on XP). I'm working on it.

EDIT: Problem fixed. Next version will work properly.

Hi
 
I really like the software, only had a chance to use it for the last few hours.  I'm not sure if the list below is bugs or my own inexperience.
 
1. When setting a cue point on a music video, the software doesnt tend to remember exactly where I have set the cue point to be.
 
2. Again when setting a cue point on a music video, the software loses the cue point when you re-add it to the deck (or another deck), I was under the impression that the cue point would be stored in the database forever.
 
3. Cue point 1 (to start playing), and Cue point 0 (to skip to next song) should be used by the software automatically when in autoplay - allowing the DJ to answer the call of nature or go to the bar!
 
4. My screen resolution is 1280 x 800, and the software looks lost!  To me it seems a shame to waste all the space of my screen.  I'm really not bothered about how pretty it looks - I just want it to be functional.
 
5. I'd like an option to keep the search popup open permanently.
 
Apologies if any of this isnt useful, as I say - I've been a user for a matter of a couple of hours!
 
Definately interested in purchasing if item 3 is added as a feature - please keep me informed!

Hi,

I've tryed you're beta version : very good job ! looks very stable (and that's the most important to me). I've been using Virtual DJ and I stopped because of unstability.

Could you make it possible to play ".ts" file, (common video file format used in HD TV SHOW capture) ? I trued with ther codec pack provided but it didn't work.

Thanks a lot and please release the new version soon I'm interested to buy it (what's happening since november 20th your last post ??)

Hi again

I've noticied a Hudge BUG in this version, as well as the other one : it works perfectly on VOB Files (with MPEG2 audio) with K-Lite Codec Pack Deejaysystem Edition version 2.72a / 2006.12.21.
But this package is dating back.
If using the last package (5.7.0 or 5.7.4), whatever the settings are, it's impossible to get the sound playing from these VOB Files.
Can you tell us more on this ? I mention that the files are playing without problems in all other softwares installed (such as MPC, VDJ...).
Tell me if your need more info from me.

I truly love your software, go ahead, bring it up !
