I'm using a Sansa Clip Zip, which hasn't been added to the Player Type list. I've noticed that several MIDI files crash the player, reporting OUT OF MEMORY and MALLOC BARF errors. This is more likely to happen with MIDI files with many instruments, such as orchestral pieces. One example is a MIDI file for Debussy's La Mer. It tries to load all instruments into memory before playing and will crash without playing anything. I don't know if this can be fixed with better memory management or if my player just has too little RAM.
This task depends upon
