Request feature to save qued/reserved song list

Admin,

I think it would be nice to have a feature to automatically save the reserved song list so in case the program or system crash when re run it would be able to reload the qued list as before the crash. My experience with the program is it would crash, some time a hours, some time several hours of playing. So when I restart the program I have to ask every one what song they wants again, so in this case a saved qued list would be nice.

Thanks

I think it did save it... mine crashed a few times too but as I restarted it, the list of songs are still there...

With that said though, there are times that the list were gone and I don't now what's going on... I am not sure which version it was but the latest one I haven't got that issue yet.

Vu,

The reserved song list that you see is the one that was saved when you last successfully exit the program, not the one were running when the program crashed.

Example, when you have song 1,2,3 reserved when program is running then you exit/shutdown program. when you restart program, song 1,2 and 3 will load automatically.

But if you have program running with no song loaded, then you reserved song 4,5,6...ect then program crashed, when you restart program, no songs is loaded automatically.

Admin, it would be helpful if you can resolve this issue. I have tested on both of my laptop and desktop and both of them have this issue. Not every one might see this issue, because I'm experience karaoke4vip crashed more frequence on my desktop than my laptop. The fact is my laptop is much more powerful and newer than the desktop.

One test I did on my desktop was playing my entire KARAOKE folder with VLC program and it playing for almost 2 days without issue or hang up. I played karaoke4vip the next days with 100 songs loaded, song 1 to 100 on my karaoke folder. It crashed 4 times, first time after 26 songs, next time after 47 songs, next is after 8 songs, last crashed after played 51 songs.

I accepted the fact that this very neat karaoke software doesn't run well on my machine, I can live with restart the program if it crashed, but would like to see it can "remember" the songs reserved so I don't have to say "Sorry every one, software crashed and can you tell me what song you like again"

Best regards,

Have fun singing!

Cahat, the previous version have memory leak, it eat about 10MB/song , so depend on the PC it may crash frequently or not, the memory leaking issue was fix in karaoke7

try to run the karaoke7 for couple days see if it have any crash or not. I'm in vietnam now, will be back to US in about 3 weeks. it is very easy to save the reserve list every time it changed.

Admin,

Thanks for your respond,

I tried the Ver. 7 and it ran fine on my desktop, but crashed every time when I right click and select "Song Catalog" option. I can load song folder and let it ran randomly.

Ver. 7 won't able to run on my laptop, the karaoke4vipatom seem to run fine on the laptop though.

It's good to hear you will implement saving reserved list every time it changed.

Enjoy your time in Vietnam.

Cheers,

Version 7 crashed when I load songlist too, only on my win8 though.. the one on my win7 doesn't crash when I access the songlist... though as you already know, it doesn't advance to the next song on the reserved list... not sure why :)

Admin,

Redownloaded the program and it seems to run fine, even though I'm still experience the program crashed after running for a more than 15 songs, it crashed twice since I tested it. Perhap memory leak is still an issue?

Another small issue on the client display, the slider bar on the right hand side was hidden when it went under the reserved windows. It appreared you have writen for the song list running the whole screen, but the reserved song windows cover the bottom portion of this screen so it appreared hidden.

Thanks
