Mixxx Crashes When Mouse Hovers Over Library

Postby ryan_james122 » Sun Jan 19, 2020 8:51 pm

Hi all,

I used to use Mixxx on my old Dell Optiplex with no issues however after upgrading my PC I am having a few strange issues.

Mixxx worked fine for a month however, now when Mixxx opens its takes around 2 minutes for Mixxx to start responding and allow me to drag tracks into decks.

After 2 minutes Mixxx will function correctly however the minute I start recording or streaming Mixxx freezes every few seconds unless I move the mouse away from my library and leave it, the minute I move the mouse over a track it will freeze again and will stop the ability for me to play samplers or drag tracks into decks.

Any help will be appreciated ☺️

Ryan

Hello,

Thank you for replying.

Sorry this is my first post...

I'm using Windows 10 64bit Version 1903 Build 18362.592 and Mixxx Version 2.2.3

Many Thanks,
Ryan

I don't think Windows 10 is the optimal operating system for a 20 year old PC, but never mind.
The phenomenon also occurs with a different skin?
Open the task manager and see what the CPU does, I think it will get close to 100%. If so, I would downgrade again and try an older version of Mixxx.

Sorry I think I’ve confused you :/ I’m no longer using my dell optiplex.

I upgraded to a pc with an Intel i5 and Gtx 1060ti and the cpu usage doesn’t hit 100% and it only freezes when moving my mouse over my music library.

Otherwise Mixxx performs fine.

Oh, there's been a misunderstanding.
Ever tried a different skin?

Very strange, i would try the next Version 2.3.0. It´s very nice and it runs for me very good. http://downloads.mixxx.org/builds/master/release/
