Nearly impossible to reproduce on demand, always is related to long app run and many concurrent actions, where any of these action could be the original reason and the playback loop is only the consequence of the freeze (app stops requesting next audio data and output plugin does not have data to play). Pushing to 5.0.1.

Fixes related to last logs done in build 2500. I still cannot reproduce, but found some possible closely related problems. I have also added debug messages. Reopen with new log in case you reproduce it again.

On 2500 doing a different type of playback I experience this in a different way. It may be related.

Have Auto-DJ run from a complex (multi-level nested) AutoPlaylist and playback repeats the beginning of most files. It would seem that Playback gets interrupted by DB operations.

2500 Playback Repeats first bit twice (Dion; Van Morrison; Joe Louis Walker).log in same place.

Fixed in build 2501. It was regression caused by fixing 0018205.

New logs added, problem is with WASAPI Output only.

According to the last logs, the problems could be strongly affected by the same problem fixed in 0018539. Please retest. In case you still reproduce it, try to reproduce and generate log also with WASAPI - Advanced - Event driven shared mode - switched off, thanks.

I am not able to reproduce on my current sound cards.

Please note that not All DAC and sound Cards support disabling Even driven Share mode and even they support maybe they make issues with default proposed buffers.

It did occur again on 2523 (new logs (occurs at end of log) added) and Stop and Pause were ineffective. MM itself is sluggish too.

At the time, CD's are being ripped and files are being edited (full Album, individual and Analyze Volume). My assumption is that playback was waiting for some other task and it maybe took too long. DirectSound was the selected Output Plugin.

Postponed to 5.0.3., where we plan to change tagging logic of playing files in 0017180, which could affect this issue too.

Tagging logic changed in 2660, playing file is now tagged after playback. Resolving to test also this issue,

I was not able to reproduce in 2660, and even in 2659 it was really hard to notice.
