I found what I think is a bug with the player object in Revolution version
2.2 on Windows. It seems to only happen with Win 2000 and Win XP Pro. Why
only these two, I'm not sure. But we've done tests on Win 98 and Win XP
Home and not had any problems.
Anyway, I'm wondering if someone can just take a couple minutes and verify
this for me. Just create a new stack and put a single player object in it.
Set the filename of the player object to any audio file (probably any kind
of media file would work; haven't tested video though). Hide the player
object, click the browse button, and start the player with "start player 1"
in the message box. It should play for about half the audio and then cut
out. It's strange because the file still continues to play, there's just no
This was working fine with 2.1.2, but not with 2.2, so something has
changed. The trick is to hide the player. If it's visible, it works just
fine. I can work around this for now by just moving my player off screen,
but I'd like to not have to do that. Can someone confirm and let me know,
and then I'll post it as a bug.
