Foobar stop
I am a new Foobar user, foobar play song (flac from my hdd) and after 5 sec or 1min sometimes 2 songs fb make stop.
Than I click on the slider and after that fb play 10 sec or more/less and after that stop again.

Hi.

Latest (1.3.15) version, but it happened many times in previous versions also.
Columns UI used.
If playlist has only the files it is unable to open (i.e. recently deleted) or very short one (i.e. opened 100ms-length mp3 file from explorer, it emptied certain playlist and the only short track present in it), playback causes hangup of foobar2000 player, it does not respond to the stop command, interface become grayed, and OS states that the application is not responding.

Your issue is a bit off-topic for this thread...
The issue you described requires that playback order is set to one of the looping ones. I don't know if foobar2000 core could do something differently but the problem only affects Columns UI. Default UI remains responsive even though CPU usage skyrockets under the task.

Until there is a fix you could use a different playback mode. Also you can stop the looping by launching foobar2000.exe from command prompt with parameter "/stop". It requires several seconds to take effect.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Case, thank you for the hint. I should try command string.
By the way, I've tried "Stop on Error" component, but it didn't help by some reason (apparently against "file not found" situation).
And yes, I use "Shuffle..." order most of the time. "Default" is rather boring. ;-)
Columns UI gave me everything, I will not betray it. =)

Let's hope musicmusic sees this and addresses the UI lockup.

The "Stop on Error" component has a bit misleading name. It was made for a similar UI freeze scenario people ran into when playback advanced too fast because files were missing (history).
Playing a short file itself is not an error. It becomes a problem when the UI tries to update itself beyond its abilities.
