FIXING THE SKIP SONGS PROBLEMS in 4.0 and 4.1
« on: July 22, 2008, 11:06:47 am »
It is very simple!!! just run sk jukebox with the compatibility for windows 98........i did that and the program just stop to skip songs......but when you would like to change some options like adding a new directory you have to change the compatibility back to normal or the program will just exit........ok my friends!! try that and remember to reply and talk about your experience with this!!!

well so far it's seem to work for me too.

Usually, I'm able to reproduce the "song skipping" bug after only a few songs (4-5).
But now, I've been playing about 20 songs and no skipping.

I'll confirm it next weekend, after further testing.

If this work, this would be a major "workaround".  This was probably the major bug left in skjukebox (IMO).

After a week of testing at home and work, I confirm that the "win98 compatibility" workaround fixes my "song skipping" problem.

PS:
I also had the "database update" error even before I enable the win98 compatibility.
However, this doesn't happens frequently, so I'll live with it.

Thanks massanet  :cheers:

oook... but mine boots and goes directly into SK, then i  have to Q to go back to windows.  Does this mean once I put it in the Win98 Comp mode I cant Q (quit) and i would have to start in safe mode to make changes.
Does anybody actually know why it hangs up?  I know it is repeatable on mine if i select the same song...

Hi everyone.

I have found out why some skipping takes place. If you are using WMA files it skips every other track.  Works fine with MP3's only.  Hope this helps.

I've tried this Win98 mode fix but for me it causes another problem.

When I play a music video and hit say the "N" key to skip to the next song I then find that SK Jukebox will not respond to any other key input until I grab the mouse and click on the screen then I can press keys and they respond until I let the video play and then it won't respond until I click the screen again.

Anyone else have this problem?

You have limited bandwidth. Pandora runs out of buffer 90 seconds into the song, and when that happens it skips to the next song (because that is less annoying then having the song stop and start and stop over and over again).

It looks similar to the Mame loosing focus issue that I occasionally have.
Probably another process steals the focus??
