The topic says it all. My roku ultra updated to the 7.5.x update and /stream.mp3, or stream.mp4 w/AAC, or stream.flac, etc seems to cause the roAudioPlayer to eventually stop responding. Shortly after this, the music stops completely and the roku hangs, then after a minute or so the roku ultra reboots.
I reverted to the 7.22 firmware through the secret screen update to resolve this on my roku ultra. I experience this on my roku3 too which is also on firmware 7.5.x, but it is happen all the time on the roku ultra. Has anybody else experienced this? This is a major show stopper type of bug. One that makes you want to smash the roku. Haw. firmware bugs annoy me.
But really, can this get addressed please? Thank you.
Are you loading the ContentList with a boat-load of entries? If so, it's a known v7.5 bug. The workaround is to keep a separate list and just load one song at a time and wait for the isFullResult event to load the next song manually.
According to RokuDale, it's something like 50, but right under that post is someone that says the MainSqueeze channel doesn't like more than 15 or so songs in a playlist. I'm assuming the MainSqueeze channel just uses the playlist to create a ContentList that gets set in an roAudioPlayer. I'm guessing your 3 or so will be just fine. I can tell you from my experience that the box crashes within a few seconds of calling Play() if you have a ContentList of hundreds of items. I haven't tried to find the limit that works or doesn't and I don't know if the time it takes to crash is dependent on the number of items in the ContentList.
