PA needs longer to close when mp3-file from archive is opened



  • I don’t know if it is a windows thing or not but when I open for example an mp3-file from an archive and close PA while the media player is still running then PA needs several seconds to actually close.

    Edit: I tried to open the music file with VLC instead of windows media player and PA closed directly after hitting the X. So maybe it has more something to do with windows media player that prevents PA to close instantly?

    Hi @ACE135
    how long does it take to close for you?
    Just tested it and PA closed in a second and a half while playing an mp3.

    Thanks

    @ACE135 @Mili I would guess it waits for mp3 file to be released from player, where WMP is slow in doing so compared to VLC.



  • Normally PA closes in about 0.2 seconds I would say. With a file still playing in WMP from that archive it takes PA about 3 to 5 seconds to close.

    I forgot to mention that I’m using PA 2018 18.02.02 on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit if that helps.

    I just thought that maybe there is something that can be done on PAs side to this “problem”.

    did you trying using right click on file and then view? Lets see if that changes anything.

    But as I said, it is because it is waiting for the file to be released so it can be checked if it is was updated.
