    Does this happen on any now playing screen or just one?
    Yes High Sierra.

    It seems to be the now playing screen when using iPlayer plugin, if I use tune-in or play tracks from library itĺs ok!

    Cheers,

    iPlayer plugin uses standard LMS functions and returns string as other remote plugin . Tune-in has ICY metadata and library tracks are built so not directly comparable.

    The only problem maybe that BBC provides long text and Squeezeplay on OSX might have problem string handling which results in memory corruption.

    How BBCiPlayer is being used might narrow down the issues.

    Live or Listen Again ? If Live what station ? (Bizarrely it does mater as BBC varies metadata data according to station and Listen Again)

    Is the screensaver customised or unchanged from distro ?

    I have a Squeezeplay on Ubuntu which is 2018 but I think is the latest from sourceforge.

    With BBCiPlayer - if I cycle through the Now Playing screen (Image, text only, bar meters, vu meters, combined) after the "combined" - Squeezeplay with always crashes with a memory issue. No problem on Touch.

    The BBCiPlayer plugin does not communicate with player. Players do not "know " what source is being used. LMS ask plugin for metadata - artist album, image and description as strings. LMS then delivers the strings to various UIs to render.

    I can recreate the crash on linux as well. Happens in the transition to the Artwork Only now playing screen.

    Does it crash when the Now playing is not showing any artwork (e.g. text only or VU meters).

    The metadata for Artwork is passed as an URL and Squeezeplay itself has to process the URL which will in fact point to a BBC image.

    If the crashes only happen when artwork is being displayed in Now playing - then it localises where to look for the problem.
