FPP Crashes on xlights Sequence Start

Hi folks I'm hoping you can help. I have had my falcon v3 controller for several years. I took a few years off sequencing and decided to get back into it this year. Unfortunately only my old sequences work. Anything that I produce now from xlights won't play, shows 0:00 time on the status page, and often crashes FPP on start. I noticed that the fseq files are very small, so I'm wondering if this is a problem with xlights, the new layout I created, or maybe I need to update FPP to play newer fseq files. I've tried everything including animation only, media only, simple one strand tests... Nothing plays. Anyone encounter this issue? Thanks in advance for your help.


Are you rendering your sequence before uploading the fseq file?  If so, a screenshot of your xlights controller setup might be a good place to start. 


If you have a very old copy of FPP you may have to save your sequences in v1 format.  v2 files are compressed and are much smaller.  Older versions of FPP do not support the compressed version.  I do not remember what version that changed.

As implied... make sure you update to the latest (currently 6.2) version of FPP.   You don't mention what version of FPP you are using, but if it's not 6.2, it's not likely going to be looked at if there is an issue.

Updating FPP did the trick. Thanks every one!!!
