foobar freezes when changing playlist

I'm running foobar2000 v1.5.4 on Windows 7.

When I double click a playlist (stream) other than the one I'm playing foobar freezes. It take several minutes to start playing again.

What's the way around that?

Install the latest stable release, 1.5.5.

In fact, no, it's still not working, even though it did when I first tried it.

Foobar 1.5.5 still hangs minutes when changing playlist, same as before.

Hi there,

What components do you have installed? If you make a new portable install to a new folder, with no components, does the same thing happen?

If so, you may need to follow the instructions in the pinned support thread (Appendix A-B) and post more information for developers to look at.

Cheers

I don't know what components are. I simply downloaded foobar 2000 and did a straight install on my Windows 7 system.

I used to run it on Windows 8 without any problem.

Are there any error reports in the Console? You can find the Console with View | Console

The problem occurs with "http://radioklassikstephansdom.ice.infomaniak.ch/radioklassikstephansdom.mp3". Perhaps it's because of the mp3?

There is something wrong with that file. It doesn't play here, but no freeze.
