Jaycyn, What kind of box are you using?

I really don't think it had anything to do with bit-rate changes especially if you are sitting at the desktop and running just Safari. Most likely it's a thread deadlock but I need to narrow it down to the specific event.

When you had the problem last night was it just playing the incoming stream or had you been transmitting at the same time?

The issued occurred when no activity was happening. i.e. no one was speaking on vent and neither was I. It had been quiet for several minutes which was odd and when I clicked on the Vent window to activate it, the cursor was a beach ball.

It happened again, just a few minutes ago - same situation. There was no crash log or any other information in the console other than the following:

8/13/11 5:20:14.051 PM Ventrilo [10764] didn't gather any samples

Box is MacPro 2 x 2.4Ghz Quad-Core Xeon, 8G RAM

I'm having the exact same problem. I'm using a Mac Pro 2x2.6GHz quad-core with 6 gigs of ram, running OS X 10.7.1. I'm using a USB headset (Yapster). Vent worked fine until I upgraded to the latest version, and now it will lock up repeatedly for what appears to be no reason. Sometimes it happens when a lot of people are talking; sometimes it happens when nobody is talking and we're just sitting around. It's making it almost impossible for me to raid or PvP.

Is the older version available to download anywhere? I really wish I could revert.

Having the same issue w/ 3.0.9. Didn't happen w/ 3.0.8.

This seems to happen after 30 mins or an hour of talking in vent. The server only has 3-5 people in it at the time. It happens at least once in a 3 hour period. Usually 2 or more times, though.

Generally I'm playing StarCraft 2 at the time it happens (I don't play other games, really). I do switch between full screen and windowed mode, as well as cmd+tab around between apps (this makes StarCraft start/stop playing its audio -- you'd know whether or not this matters better than I). Sometimes the speakers (next to usernames) are on or off when I notice the app has locked up so I'm not sure it has much to do with transmitting or receiving audio at the time this happens. Also, I'm running Lion (10.7.1).

If there's any specific info I can give when the app gets into this state (logs, dumps, whatever), please let me know and I'll grab it and send it to you the next time it happens.

Any chance of getting a 3.0.8 download link?

Two crash logs from tonight

Let me know if there's a better way to post these :)
