Weird "Live MIDI" bug

Postby Rob Peters » Tue Jul 21, 2015 9:17 pm

My page http://imslp.org/wiki/Wind_Quintet,_Op. ... rs,_Rob%29 which I created yesterday suddenly has two MIDI files associated with it, with completely different music (and actually older than the page itself...)
Can't see who added them, and I don't see the data when I try editing the piece... really odd.

I had a similar experience. A Live Midi "performance" appeared the moment I uploaded a Cabanilles pdf. I have no idea what the Live Midi performance is as they will not play on my Mac/Safari. Seems like a not useful feature.

It appears to be a known issue:

viewtopic.php?f=37&t=8002&p=39483
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7957&p=39271#p39614

Right now, I'd say this buggy feature vandalizes people's work pages, specially since there's no rating system attached to these files, and they can't even be removed. A person interested in a new composition will naturally check out the available recordings first - and when he/she gets treated to a discordant low quality "recording" of something completely unrelated, that interest will vanish quickly.
Wouldn't it be better to disable this feature till it's properly debugged?
