This player is devolving into a buggy mess of late. WASAPI still doesn't work properly, streaming on occasion hangs the player and file operations similarly will stall out on large numbers of files.
I expect better from this player - this is Winamp-style behavior (and that's NO compliment).

The player is awesome. It has no peer.
The WASAPI plugin is pure garbage. It worked flawlessly with USB speakers in its 2.x incarnation but with 3.x it stops dead and locks up Windows audio after playing ONE song, requiring a reboot to get audio back. This is with Logitech Z-Cinema speakers.
FIVE stars for an indispensable player. Minus ONE star for an absolutely abysmal WASAPI plugin implementation bu the same author.
If you're running Linux give DeadbeeF a try. It's pretty much Foobar2000 for Linux.
Sooo, that components is PP blocking exactly? This ain't the Foobar forums, because of that fact I don't have to care which foobar denizens get their panties in a bunch (not that I would anyway) and inquiring minds want to know. :) :) ;)
