I didn't think I'd changed the dates, in fact bar music/playlist paths
it's straight out the box. Tried your suggestion anyway and still no
joy.

Since then I've installed the same version on my main Win2K
workstation (Win2K Prof SP4) and having similar problems.

All seems to work fine and can be streaming nicely until (normally) I
do something with the playlist, like skip a file, add another, move
one up/down then first thing I know is IE showing 'Page not Found' on
the interface elements that have tried to refresh.

If I restart the service and reconnect winamp to the stream the server
then pulls back the previous/request playlist and starts playing
again, until I do something with the playlist then dies again. This
happens for a while, and then eventually it'll die as soon as I start
to play the stream, pretty much instantly as if it's not going to
bother trying.

IT seems, from a logical point of view, that it's getting upset with
the playlist, which makes me think the actual files, format, id tags,
names, timestamps etc is upsetting it. Admittedly I am testing with
the same few mp3's. IS it possible that a certain file(s) is causing
this. I am based in the UK, so all locale settings are GMT, UK
English etc, different date formats (Although I believe internally the
same). Any more ideas, because loving this when it (briefly!) works.

TIA

Hi,

It would be really helpful if you could narrow it down to a specific
file or files. Also, are you using the remote or the web interface to
trigger this error?

Hi dean,

It's not specific files, had played with updating all MP3 tags,
renaming files etc, but still played up when I added an entire 80's
directory.

However, once playing it's fine, been looping a playlist of 100 odd
Mp3's quite happily for a few hours. Also note that this was just a
copy of Winamp connecting to the server, didn't have a Squeezebox at
the time so all done via web interface.

Squeezebox arrived now and everything from remote seems fine, added,
removed, files, directories etc, etc. Also running in (almost!) sync
with Softsqueeze on PC and seems happy, added, moved, deleted from
playlist via web interface and everything working as would expect.

Could be it just didn't like Winamp on it's own connecting to the
stream. Will play further but been good for last 18 hours or so for
no obvious reason.

Ok, spoke to soon, squeezebox and softsqueeze running in sync untilo
it got to end of playlist (was set to repeat) and just dropped off and
server died, same error as before.

Tried to restart server but was dieing as soon as one of the two tried
to reconnect. Ended up deleting the individual player .m3u playlists
and then server started and stayed up. At which point started both
players again and carried on as norm.

Any of this helping in any direction?
