Wrong place for A/V player (outside of preview pane)

Postby tnovak » Thu Apr 13, 2017 6:51 pm

Hi!

first of all I would like to thank you for your great tool! I'm using Everything every day!

But now I noticed weird bug. In Everything beta 1.4.1.867b (x64) the player for audio and video files appears outside the preview pane. It's floating on the left side of the screen:

System W10 x64 1703.

Can you please correct it?

Thank you!

Thanks for the bug report.

Could you please send some debug information when showing the preview window:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /debug
  • In Everything, select a new video file.
  • What is shown in the debug console?

To close the debug console:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /debug

Does resizing the preview pane correct the position?

Hi!

Debug log sent.

Resizing window/preview pane is changing the size of the player, but it's still floating on the left side of screen.

I now tested older versions of Everything and they have also this bug. But some time before it was OK. So I suspecting the new Windows 10 Creators Update may causing it...

Can you still correct it on the Everything side (if it's really Win issue)?

Thank you!

EDIT: Just a little observation: when I kill the wmprph.exe (Windows Media Player Rich Preview Handler) process and re-enable the preview pane (or close the preview pane so the process closes itself), the player is then in correct position. But only until I close the Everything window. After re-opening it's floating again :(

EDIT 2: It's the audio preview only! The video preview is in correct position! But it's only a picture, not the player... So the video preview has different issue :(

EDIT 3: Yes, I can now confirm, that's the Creators Update issue :( I have some virtual PCs and those with CU has the same issues (except they are showing the floating player for videos too). But these with build 1607 are OK. Can you make some workaround for this incompatibility?

I get that picture on a format that my end cannot handle (.flv).

Thanks for the debug log.

The log shows no errors from the iPreviewHandler interface, all calls are successful.

I've added some additional debugging information to Everything 868b.

Could you please send the debug logs when showing a preview window with this version of Everything?

What version of Windows Media Player are you using?
Open Windows Media Player (You may need to click the library button), In Windows Media Player, from the Help menu, click About Windows Media Player.

What version of Windows 10 are you using?

Hi!

New log sent!

With this version the audio and video previews didn't show at all.

The video is still only the picture.<- EDIT: NOT Everything issue - FIXED

WMP is version 12.0.15063.0.

Windows 10 Pro 1703 build 15063.138 Czech.

Thanks!

EDIT: I just found the culprit for my "video preview showing just the picture" issue: it's was Potplayer. It somehow changed the preview handler in registry (\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mp4 etc..). I reset the association and now the video is again showing in preview player, but like the preview for audio, it's floating outside the preview pane.

But I discovered new issue with ver 1.4.1.868b - this version doesn't show preview for txt files correctly. It just shortly flashes in preview pane and disappears. When I tried 867b, it's OK here. So it seems that the debug version added one new bug :D
But nevermind, I still know you can fix it like always :lol:

BTW: I sent two new debug logs for video and text.

Thanks for the debug logs.

SetWindow 00000000
SetRect 0 0 386 594


Looks like Everything is attempting to place the window in the correct position.

glad to hear the issue is sorted.

But I discovered new issue with ver 1.4.1.868b - this version doesn't show
preview for txt files correctly. It just shortly flashes in preview pane
and disappears. When I tried 867b, it's OK here. So it seems that the

Fixed for the next beta release.

Hi!

I just tried 1.4.1.869b (x64). Txt preview is now OK. Thanks! The video and audio still floating.

Do you need new debug logs?

EDIT 2:
Definitely CU bug :-( :
https://answers.microsoft.com/ru-ru/windows/forum/windows_10-files/windows-10-creators-update-build-15063-windows/6dd7b2e6-b795-45fc-98ac-a330716700f7

I found only way how to override it:
I open Everything with preview pane closed (or close it manually and wait for a moment so the preview handler program closes itself).
Then, when I enable preview pane, the previews are correct (until I close Everything window).

Is it possible to bypass this annoying Windows error in Everything program code? Pretty please :-))))

Thanks!

Thanks for the logs, they all look normal.

Does selecting another result fix the position? or is the position always incorrect when selecting a different result?

Hi!

Selecting another result, new search, changing filters, size or position of Everything window or preview pane - nothing fix the position of the preview player.

Only way, as I wrote, is closing the preview pane, waiting for preview process to terminate itself and then reopening preview pane. Then the position stays correct. You can then select another result, make new search or change a position or size of Everything window - still stays correct.
But closing Everything window (to tray) will cause the floating previews again.

Thanks!

Please try enabling 'preview_set_window_after_dopreview' with the latest nightly build 870b

In Everything 870b, type in the following search and press ENTER:
/preview_set_window_after_dopreview=1
Does the preview show in the correct position now?

Re: Wrong place for A/V player (outside of preview pane)

Postby void » Fri Apr 28, 2017 1:21 pm

I've installed Windows 10 x64 1703 15063 Czech and was able to reproduce the preview window position issue.

However, I haven't found a solution yet..
The preview window appears to always be on the top left of the primary display, no matter what parent window or position I set.
