Application not shuts down Correctly


I work with the Source Code 62051, on a Windows 7 64Bit.
If i start the Player play a movie and close the Windows Form application.
It not gets closesd fully. It hangs.
When i break the Debug i see it Hangs on the Line:

in the File VlcControl.Common function public void Stop();
However if i stop the movie before i close the app it closes fully and goes back to Visual Studio.
I tried to fix the issue with a FormClose/Closing Event without any luck. If i try to stop the movie there the same Problem happens, i guess some Reference is not there anymore.
Second Thing:
Had to fix the Take_Snapshot function in Order to compile. Otherwise it is working fine.
    public void TakeSnapshot(string filePath, uint width, uint height)
        if (VlcContext.InteropManager != null &&
            VlcContext.InteropManager.MediaPlayerInterops != null &&
                (Action)(() => VlcContext.InteropManager.MediaPlayerInterops.VideoInterops.TakeSnapshot.Invoke(VlcContext.HandleManager.MediaPlayerHandles[this], 0, StringToByteArray(filePath), width, height)));
    private byte[] StringToByteArray(string str)
        System.Text.ASCIIEncoding enc = new System.Text.ASCIIEncoding();
        return enc.GetBytes(str);
When will the In Memory Snapshot function appear?
vlcControl1.IsSeekable is missing.
vlcControl1.CanPause is missing.
Best Regrads and keep up that good Work
Really like the Api soon i use WPF as well to test that thing out :)

I still experience this deadlock (playing a http stream) with vlc-1.2.0-git-20110712-0002-win32.zip

It hangs in:

Subscribe to the ShutdownStarted event of the Dispatcher of your usercontrol or window that you keep your vlc player in.

Dispatcher.ShutdownStarted += new EventHandler(Dispatcher_ShutdownStarted);

at the event, check to see if the player is still playing and stop it.
    void Dispatcher_ShutdownStarted(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Dispatcher.ShutdownStarted -= new EventHandler(Dispatcher_ShutdownStarted);
        // Here you can check if player is still running and stop it. Do not stop it if it is not running
        // also a good place to call VlcContext.CloseAll(); after the stop.
