My Windows 10 x64 Deezer app constantly crashes if being used for 1 hour or more of listening to the music. Is it something known? How to fix that? Yet Win10 version does not support smooth tracks changing(non-stop). I would like this iOS feature be implemented for Win10 as well.

Hi there again @Alexander Chernyaev 

What version of our app have you got? Does it crash when playing the same track or playlist? Please try the following:

  • Uninstall the app
  • Search for %appdata and delete any Deezer folder you find
  • Restart your PC
  • Download the app from the store again and reinstall it

And the feature you're talking about is gapless. We've been developing it for a few months now, hoping to bring it to the desktop app soon! :relaxed:

It’s 4.32.10 version. I did install it from Windows Store. Ok, I will try this advice a bit later today. Thanks for gapless feature report as I’m looking forward to get it. :grinning:

Hi there, @Rudi . I have just reinstalled the app like you suggested. I will check it today. As to me this is some code error that is accumulating. Hope reinstalling helps.

Latest desktop version is 4.32.20, but that probably has not been rolled out to all users yet. Can you check the Windows task manager and watch if it is showing too much RAM usage over time? How much RAM does your computer have, and do you use Windows 10 as OS or maybe Linux with Wine or something similar?

I noticed a similar behaviour with the Deezer web player, but not with the desktop app yet which usually is less demanding than the web player.

I use WIndows 10 Home x64 as a host os. My PC has got 16Gb of RAM. More than 1 hour usage of the app shows its memory consumption at 890 Mb total(With all its subprocesses). And I don’t use Web player. It’s good you noticed this version change. I didn’t spot it has changed after the reinstall.

Hi @Rudi , unfortunately it still crashes. It would be nice if you had an automatic crash reporting that  gathers dumps. Unfortunately there is no suitable dump in AppData\Local\CrashDumps.

It’s the version I’ve got. Today it didn’t crash. Let me check tomorrow as it can take a half of the day of continuously listeneing to the music.

Please let me know in which track it stops (it could be a problem with the track when it crashes) @Alexander Chernyaev

It still crashes. The track it crashed at is: Apolune - Jesper Ryom, the playlist is the one that is available to everyone: Dream House.

The track is playing fine on my side. Great playlist by the way @Alexander Chernyaev you have good taste!

Try changing the audio quality for the app, to see if the track plays without crashing. Let me know!

And so it is for me when started after the crash. It’s some programmer error that is accumulating. To repro this - is next to impossible unless you can leave your started app with a debugger attached for a half of a day.

Hey. I can setup an automatic crash dump collection for it with the adplus tool. Shall we try it tomorrow?
