[ Fixed ] Frequent crashes with MusicBrainz query

Post by AlfaGTV » Fri Oct 26, 2018 3:05 pm

Hi Poiko,
i am going through a few hundred albums and cleaning up their metadata.
I use the "Search for CD information online"-function and this most of the time works well.
But now, for the fourth time, it crashes in the middle of my editing. It seems to happen just as the last service finishes it's request for info and the dialogue is about to chang into where i select a particular set of metadata.
This has happened on three different computers, all windows 10, build 1709 and 1803.
As usual this is highly irritating as it Always seem to happen when you have edited a LOT of albums but havent saved.
It also affects EZ CD Converter 8.0.3 and 8.0.4..

I created a WIndows Dump-file if its of any use, but its quite large (ca 250Mb/100Mb compressed):

Just crashed again… This time on the first lookup after save!
Have a look at the attached Picture, thats what it look like.
It ssems to have hung, and i press the "abort"-button for the failing service. It greys out and nothing more happens. I try the "abort"-button at the bottom of the window with the same result, greys out and EZ CD ceases to respond…

Everything ceased to work, and it looked like MusicBrainz was the service that failed each time.
Rebooted everything, restarted EZ CD and disabled MusicBrainz-service from Internet lookup services.
Now it's working again…
Something is wrong inte MusicBrainz API....

It says sending request to musicbrainz. It tries to connect to musicbrainz but does not connect Cancelling should work. I will take a look into this.

It generally works perfectlly. I have tested it with about 200 CDs.

Can you reproduce the error with certain set of files ? If you can, then can you send me a screenshot where I can see the order and lengths of the files ? (Or just send me the files for testing purpose).
It will help a lot.
Thanks !

Does it crash if you use english instead of swedish ?

I sent you a download link for the debug version via email.

There seem to be no apparent bug in MusicBrainz query. It has been checked very carefully.

Internet connection system has also been checked. And some minor improvements have been made for the next update.

Status update.

Getting somewhere.

MusicBrainz returns invalid entries with 104 tracks on a CD same tracks multiple times.

I will be able to solve the problem.

Thanks AlfaGTV ! :)
