It would be well if you make button which terminates MpegPlayer besides such function in menu, because when Mpegplayer hangs it is necessary to reset player. If look more in the future, it would be well to make combination of keys which terminates runned plugin or make something like Task Manager.
This task depends upon

I've changed this from a feature request to a bug report - mpegplayer already has a "stop" button, which should exit the plugin. But it's not 100% reliable, especially on dual-core targets.

I would like to comment that it's been 100% reliable on my Gigabeat, and was 100% reliable on my Nano recently until some of the threading changes (the ones that introduced instability in the H10/etc).

Now I get a freeze when I run my second file, and I *think* "Data Abort" flashes very briefly when I exit my first file.

The same situation. Thats why I created this topic.
