gmb not responsive while HDD spins up
« on: October 05, 2013, 16:37:32 »
My music library is located on an external HDD which spins down after some idle time. If the HDD is woken up by gmusicbrowser (starting playback or scrolling around the playlist which involves loading cover art), the program becomes completely unresponsive for the several seconds it takes for the HDD to spin up again. Would it be possible to somehow put file loading in the background so that gmb would remain interactive while waiting for the disc to spin up?
