VDJ 8.2b freezing...
Topic: VDJ 8.2b freezing while playing
Has anyone had this happen to them and if so, what was your resolve?

It might just be related to the sleep mode of your external.
If the sound ist not affected VDJ may unfreeze after your external awoke.

People have posted similar issues here before, and they were using Pioneer with Mac.
ISTR it was related to latency being set too low (buffer too small). Try increasing it a little. Something around 10ms should be fine.

Are you both using Macs and Pioneer controllers? If not, then please say what you're using.

I did the math and it coincidentally happens that 2^32 (4294967296) lies between 97391*44100 and 97392*44100.
At 44100 numbers per second, it takes 97391 seconds to overflow the 32-bit unsigned integers. So this freeze may be caused by 32-bit integers overflowing.

For the other cases, we cant reproduce so its hard to tell what happens
If you can easily reproduce a freeze/sound drop (like mikejannusch says it happens every 10 mins) and want to provide some useful feedback, you can go back to a previous Build (one by one would be ideal) and see at which Build this started to happen

DJ Dad I see your post about it getting fixed but wanted to throw my 2 cents in. I have not had to do a wedding for a while now so I have just been playing around and scratching with mostly Serato. I did some lounge gigs and the company I contracted for required I use Serato so I did. Anyway I updated around the beging of the week/end of last week when I reopened VDJ for the first time in a while. I have a lot of my play lists saved in VDJ so it's just easier to use VDJ at a wedding.
On to the point;
While practicing on my turntables and DS1 for the past few days I have not had an issue. I took my Numark Mixdeck for the gig tonight like normal and hooked it all up. I'm still pretty sure VDJ still doesn't connect with the controller when I switch from my Computer only out to Mixdeck out so I still have to reset it every time. It's been a while not a big deal but still an issue. Then I put on dinner music for sound check and what not and after about 15-20 minutes in of it playing VDJ essentially froze and restarted in a time frame of 1-2 seconds. I thought it was odd but fine whatever. However it did it 2 more times to me while in the dance. The majority of the night Pulselocker would not respond and I couldn't get a few odd songs I had saved in a playlist from a predetermined request list given to me by my friend (the bride). I thought maybe it was the internet, or wifi so I tried a bunch of different options with tethering my phone, different wifi connections and so on. Finally just plugged my phone in to tether via USB but still nothing. I could use google just fine. I could download from Clubkillers just fine as well.
I set up between 4:30-5:30, cocktails were at 5:30. The first reset happened at 5-5:15ish. The second reset happened very shorly after the formal dances around 8:45ish. The third reset happened around 9:50-10:00 but this time Pulselocker kicked in and was working again. Each time the reset happened it seemed related to me loading a song on the opposite deck then the one playing. Each reset happened in the same fashion, the screen would lock up for a 1/2 second, restart and load back up in the other 1/2 of the second while pausing the music yet continued exactly from where the song left off. Also each time the playlist (before dinner)/ request lists (mid dance tracking) I had loaded in Automix and the list I had of formal songs in the sidelist would disappear. The lists clearing off could be a feature I (un)selected a while ago as I think I remember something about that.
I have v8.2b3710 on a 15" 09 Macbook Pro w/NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT 256 MB, and a 500g Samsung SSD 850 EVO.
