To avoid that, I use "2" for the setting "Add when the playback position is X items or less from the end".
I don't know if it's a known bug, or if it can be circumvented ?
This is neither a known bug nor can it be circumvented. It's a just timing problem. Setting the value as you described is the best what you can do.

Hello @fbuser, I just noticed that, with FB v2 beta 34, the "Check for updated components" did not report as new your 3 components: Random Pool 2.0.0., SQLTree 4.0.0 and SQLite Utilities 3.0.2. (this did not prevent me from installing all them manually).
Said that, I also noted that FB v2 beta 34 can detect other updates, thereof I think there is a problem with your components versioning reporting.

**** Performance problem with new version 2.0.0 ****

Hello @fbuser , my PC is an old 32bit running Win 10.
Stated this, the previous version was able to generate a 50 tracks random playlist in few seconds (I have a large library).
The new V2.0.0 takes 20 times (or so) longer!!!!

To be noted that I have updated the 3 components Random Pool 2.0.0., SQLTree 4.0.0 and SQLite Utilities 3.0.2, and not just the Random Pool.

Can you help me troubleshooting the problem? I really would  like to get back to a decent performance.

Kind regards, Andrea

Seems to work now. Had been also a problem for my components.

This might not be possible, but just let me know, which settings you are using for this

I've updated plugin today, v2.0.1, and it crashes foobar2000. Windows 11 64 bit, v2.0 works.

Could you please post the crash report here?
Thanks.

I had the same problem. I was not able to even start foobar without using safe mode and removing the component.

I have multiple crash logs I can upload - let me know if this one works.

Thanks, this is sufficient. But I have a few questions:

  • Did you upgrade from random pools version 2.0.0 or did you newly install version 2.0.1?
  • If it was a new installation, did you use the configuration from a fb2k version < 2?
  • If you used the configuration from a fb2k version < 2, what are the versions of fb2k and random pools you take the configuration from?

I upgraded from 2.0.0. When foobar relaunched after installing 2.0.1, it immediately crashed.

Thanks for the info. I should have asked also for this scenario: Did you use a configuration from a fb2k version < 2 when you installed random pools version 2.0.0?

Re: [fb2k v2] Random Pools (foo_random_pools)

I upgraded from foobar 1.6 where I also had Random Pools installed, so probably yes.

Ok, that explains the cause of the crash. It should be fixed now with the lastet version.

Sorry for late reply, it was the same for me - I've migrated config from 1.6 when installing beta 2.0, 32 to 64 bit. randompools weren't available then, so I waited final version of 2.0, installed 2.0 of randompools, it worked, and then upgraded to 2.0.1, had crash.

Hmm, this is a different scenario as that vom @Reith and it's a bit suprising.

In case you still have problems also with 2.0.2, could you please post your config.sqlite from your profile folder, so that I can analyze it?

Hello,
I am having problems with the new version, starting from V2.0.
Before that version, my PC was taking 15-20 seconds to create a 50 tracks random playlist, while now, using the today last versions of all the components, it is taking 180 to 240 seconds!

Please, post your settings. Besides this as you are obviously using a SQL query, ensure that you are using a materialized media library table, not the virtual table directly. This should be always faster on your system.

Hello @fbuser, I checked my PC and the file "foo_sqlite.materialize.db" is there and has size of 450MB approximatively, while the "metadb.sqlite" file is about 1GB in size.

Regarding my configuration and queries, I am only using the queries you kindly made for me months ago. As well as the "marialization" of the dBase was made following your instructions.
Since then I didn't change anything, also because I don't know anything of SQL.

The queries and materialization instruction you provided me in: Reply #318 – 2022-08-19 21:56:15 and Reply #331 – 2022-08-23 19:21:06 of this thread.

What really happened, it was that along with the release of the final Foobar V2, you also released the new set of 3 components, Random Pool 2.0.0., SQLTree 4.0.0 and SQLite Utilities 3.0.2, and since then I am having this performance issue.

Kindly understand that, due to my ignorance of SQL, I cannot understand if the problem is within the new Foobar V2 or what else.

Said that, I am very happy to do whatever needed to let you understand what's wrong. Please, just tell me step by step what I shall have to do and/to provide you.

Thanks and regards, Andrea

Ok, can you please open the SQLite console, enter the following statement and let me know the result?
Code: [Select]
WITH
Albums AS (
  SELECT album||'|'||coalesce("album artist",artist) Album
  FROM MMediaLibrary
  GROUP BY 1
  ORDER BY random()
  LIMIT 10
)
SELECT path, subsong FROM
MMediaLibrary
WHERE album||'|'||coalesce("album artist",artist) IN (SELECT album FROM Albums)
ORDER BY album||'|'||coalesce("album artist",artist),coalesce(discnumber,1),tracknumber;

Hello @fbuser , thanks a lot for your support that allowed me to fix the problem.
I noted that the SQL query you provided me in Reply #318 – 2022-08-19 was making use of MediaLibrary instead of MMediaLibrary.
I then put MMediaLibrary also in those set of "random tracks" queries and now I can have a 50 random tracks playlist created in 10 seconds! Perfect so! About 3 times faster than the old good 2022 performance.

Now, solved my "current performance problem", still remaining the big question: why it was anyway working decently in the past with MediaLibrary and not anymore today?

All the best and thanks a lot again for your help, Andrea

It was actually in #324. In #318 was the initial solution without SQL.

still remaining the big question: why it was anyway working decently in the past with MediaLibrary and not anymore today?
Indeed, especially as the performance for that query on my 6 year old standard notebook is 2.3 seconds for MediaLibrary and 1.7 seconds for MMediaLibrary.

So the performance degretion for you is most likely caused by your slow system in the first place in combination with the internal changes including the changes for SQLite itself. But even on your system this should normally not cause such a huge performance difference between both statement versions.
