Hello TBBETA Members! A while ago, when listing more than a few bugs/problems TB brings with it, freezing TB was one of them. That was already quite annoying.
Over the past couple of days I found out that this freeze has effects on other programs, namely media players. When TB is open and I try to watch a video or listen to music with VLC, Groove, 5KPlayer etc. the media freeze, skip, and pixelate. First I thought it was something in my network - it isn't, internally I have a fully functional Gigabit Ethernet, outside connection is 500 Mbit down, 50 Mbit up, even with a VPN I don't get under 300/30. It isn't my soundcard, not my processor nor RAM [see https://www.screencast.com/t/elvx9PtMeJ6 ]. For testing I let first Groove* run with a long playlist. It skipped while TB was running; System Monitor showed that every time Groove skipped the main TB process got red and was 'unresponsive'. Same when I checked with VLC. Closing TB**, then running Groove for an hour without any skipping, then the same with VLC. This makes TB unusable to me. *as part of the OS it should have the least interaction problems **curiously a TB process ran on after closing the program; I mentioned that previously -- Dierk Haasis [DH² Publishing] www.DH2Publishing.info Twitter: Evo2Me 8.5.8 on Windows 10 0 17134 Buss's Third Law of Human Mating: For every mating adaptation in one sex, there exists at least one co-evolved adaptation in the other sex designed to manipulate and exploit it.
