Doppler fails to close podcast files after download


If I download a group of files and then go to Explorer to set the podcast genere Windows reports that one of the files is open in another program and it can't save it. If I close doppler then retry everything is fine.

I think it is something to do with the File list because closing doppler and re-opening it has no effect.
This suggests that though the file handle is released when the application is closed it is re-opened when doppler
is restarted even though the download has already finished. I think this is because of the file list.

Scratch that I think it's WMP/iTunes that's causing the problem.

After more testing I've found that WMP definitely causes this problem.
If you had set it to not be visible before you start doppler then there's no problem.
If you don't select the file then there's no problem.
Once you select the file even if you deselect it and / or hide WMP it won't release the file handle.
I guess since we aren't going to support embedded WMP in the next release this isn't such a big issue.

What OS are you running on when duplicating this?
I have been trying to duplicate it and have had no luck.

Vista Business 32bit with WMP 11.0.6000.6344

I would like to clarify some things on this then.
When you are talking about WMP being visible, are you talking about the WMP inside the File List section of the Doppler application, or the full WMP?

I have just got the Doppler code onto my Vista 64 machine to start testing on there.

It's the plugin. I haven't tried testing with the full WMP open.

Resolved with changeset 9386.

Should not have closed this until it is proven to be working.

No luck. I still get the same behaviour.
I've tried setting it to play another file and it still doesn't release the lock. This is what happens with the full WMP.
As soon as you start playing another file it releases the lock. I don't know why the embeded version doesn't have the same behaviour.
Maybe you have to call some special methods before you start playing the next file.

I've discovered that even when the file has stopped playing the openState is set to 13 which is WMPLib.WMPOpenState.wmposMediaOpen.
The question is how to change the state.

This may be of use if we later want to add support for changing the genre etc. from doppler.

Associated with changeset 9457.

What is the fix you made? I still get similar results (I haven't tested extensively) with the updated binaries.

AidenMontgomery wrote Feb 11, 2008 at 6:34 AM

Apologies, this should not have been associated with changeset 9457. Those changes related to setting the genre of downloaded files. So nothing has changed for this issue.
