YAMJ Always freezes during scanning
Hello, I can't solve this problem in any way.
YAMJ always freeze while scanning my files. I installed latest version of yamj and java, but nothing changed. It usually freeze with tv series: Dr. House, Quantum Leap, Paradox...
It never reaches the end, and every time I have to rescan from the beginning. It just freezes without writing anything into the moviejukebox.ERROR.log.
In moviejukebox.log here is the last info:

Quote:[12:08:30 - Thread-2] PosterScanner: Using thetvdb to search for a TvShow poster for Paradox


I tried different thread settings, and different plugins, without results.
I think it should be useful some kind of timeout while gathering information on a file, skipping it.

Thank you

well well, i can't believe...
Most of titles are in italian language, so i tried these settings
Quote:poster.scanner.SearchPriority.tv=comingsoon,thetvdb,cdon,filmaffinity,filmweb,su​bbaba,sratim

and now I REACHED THE END of poster scanning:
..but...incredible now freezed at the end:

Quote:Finished: Zoolander avi (358/358)

and in the log file:

You're selling your PCH because a third party app freezes?

Do you sell your PC every time Word crashes?

RE: YAMJ Always freezes during scanning
This may be caused by a lack of memory.

Please try v2.4 of YAMJ as that has made a lot of memory changes and reduces the size of the memory footprint and should mean less of these "freezes"

I think something is amiss in your statement. I just did the upgrade to 2.4 and it completely depletes my memory. Also - I read in the announcement where you state the first scan will take longer - but should it be 3 times longer?

I have somewhere around 700 movies and 75 TV series. Running an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ with 4G of memory with XP PRO. I am using AiO SabishGT beta skin.

With YAMJ 2.3 BETA r2037 Processing took 03:10:26. This is using the default number of processing and download threads.

I deleted my library and followed the upgrade instructions (yes I deleted the Lib folder) and ran YAMJ 2.4 r2251 and Processing took 09:55:00.

Normally I run with 6 processing and 10 download threads with no issues with 2.3 - but with 2.4 I watched my free memory go down to 50 bytes (not megabytes nor gigabytes). My CPU temp went through the roof and the PC shut itself off. The only way it will finish is with the defaults (which are 1 processing and 1 download thread).

I am wondering if there is something wrong with my setup or configuration?

BTW - when I run 2.3 BETA with 6 processing and 10 download threads I can recreate the entire library in about 01:30:00.

Thank you for YAMJ. I have tried all the other choices and YAMJ is the clear winner for me!

RE: YAMJ Always freezes during scanning
There is no way with that machine that you should run into issues with what is a relatively small library.

2.4 does have some serious improvements in the memory usage, so I'm surprised that you see it use up so much.

What are your moviejukebox.bat settings? have you changed those from default?

Have you upgraded java?

Have you upgraded java?

Here's my moviejukebox.bat command line

java -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -classpath .;resources;lib/* com.moviejukebox.MovieJukebox %*

From the verify Java version site:

You have the recommended Java installed (Version 6 Update 24)

Should I go back a version?

I just ran it again with my 6 processing threads and 10 download threads and it completed in 01:54:00 - but I had 100 bytes of memory free when it completed.

I blew out my CPU fan and case and the temperature still went up but did not reach the critical stage to shutoff the PC.

I noticed at the end when it was heating up my CPU I was getting these errors:

WARN moviejukebox - Failed drawing overlay to Zero Hour.1957.ENG. Please check that default_overlay_thumbnails.png is in the resources directory.

So am I missing something from the skin? A question for GT I guess but I never saw that error with 2.3 I'll do a search of the forums.

Thanks for any help.

RE: YAMJ Always freezes during scanning
Sounds like the graphics processing is really killing your CPU.

Are you on 32bit or 64bit XP?

You are telling MovieJukebox that it can only have 1Gb of memory, and to allocate that in 256Mb chunks
Try changing it to this
Code:
java -Xms128m -Xmx2048m
That will allocate 2Gb to YAMJ and reduce the reqests to 128Mb which should result in a lower memory footprint for you, at the expense of some speed (nothing you should notice)

Try reducing the processing threads down to 4 and that should help out with the graphics intensive processing at the end of the run.

RE: YAMJ Always freezes during scanning
I have started YAMJ 9 hours ago and when I left home it was still running... how is it possible that it got so incredibly slow ?
When I get back home I will see if at least it got to the end.

Thanks Omertron - I change the bat file settings as you suggested and the run time was 02:20:20. My free memory was down to 40 MBytes (better - but still scary) and my CPU temp still went up at the end during the graphics processing. I rebooted prior to running to free up any lost memory.

I am running 64bit XP PRO.

I wonder what is different for me and the handful of others having this issue?

Tomorrow I will try running 2.4 with no skin and see what that does, after that I may try redownloading and installing 2.4 again in case something is corrupted.

I solved the error message with default_overlay_thumbnails.png. Seems I had set the option thumbnails.overlay to true sometime in the past (though I don't recall ever doing it) and GT said it was not supported in the skin.

Now I get this error message:

ERROR moviejukebox - PosterScanner: 'filmaffinity' plugin doesn't exist, please check you moviejukebox properties. Valid plugins are : impawards / google / moviecovers / motechnet / thetvdb / imdb / themoviedb / cdon / yahoo /

What did I do wrong this time?

So I will do some testing tomorrow and let you know what happens. I am a support engineer for operating systems and hardware but know little or nothing at all about java programming (and I am too old to learn Rolleyes )

Thanks for the help and I'll post back tomorrow. For now I am going to watch a movie.

At the end it took around 15 hours to finish the job, but at least it did not freeze.

Did a new scan with 2.4 and it takes also around 12-15 hours !
What is going on ??? Used to take around 1 hour...

I think that all that long time scanning issues have primarily to do with the tv series.
I have noticed that my films are scanned really fast, but as soon as it arrives to the TV series everything freezes.
Any workarounds or hints ?

RE: YAMJ Always freezes during scanning
A few people have been noticing that theTVDb is pretty slow on some occasions. There's nothing we can really do about this as theirs is the major source of TV data.

You can try the TVRage plugin, but it doesn't contain the nice features such as the video images.

Yes - I have found the same thing.

I have tried a lot of things: fell back to YAMJ 2.3, went up to YAMJ 2.5 SNAPSHOT BETA, with and without skin and found my scan time is very long and still running low on memory at the end of the run.

I have tried 2 and 4 process threads and many different combination of things.

Now I am going to try to fall back on my Java. I have removed the latest version of Java (I have both 32 and 64 bit on my system) V6 update 24 and went back to the oldest version I have (V6 update 14).

My initial scan was promising reducing the time from 8 hours to 5 hours and leaving 1G or so memory free. I will try another scan later and see if this was a fluke.
