Showtime frequently crashes when fast forwarding high bitrate movies. This bug was already present in earlier builds but I never reported it.
Last attempt was on a 3.99 GB M2TS 1080p movie. Fast forwarding up to approximately 5 minutes will be fine, but when fast forwarding longer than that using the right arrow (say 20 minutes), Showtime will crash and restart.

Actually this also happens when starting some files. See an attached log.

That's funny. Crashing seems to be caused by RAR files. I've retried several times, and Showtime always crashes after scanning a RAR file:

00:04:06.285: FA [DEBUG]:file:///dev_usb001/VIDEO/Films: File file:///dev_usb001/VIDEO/Films/Thor.1080.part1.rar added by rescan

I can confirm this.

But I notice it in larger files (~20GB).

If you reverse it to the original position while the screen is black it might resume playback and not crash.

Also, jumping from chapters menu also doesn't work in these same files. I'm thinking it's related.

Can you retest that with latest Showtime versions?

#5 Updated by Ema Nymton over 7 years ago

The latest builds seem to be more robust now. I think you can close this bug report. FYI, I don't use any RAR files anymore as I stream everything from my NAS.
