That's right, you're not alone. In addition to having a 16/44.1 track stopped 14 seconds before its end, DSD tracks play the first 2 minutes 9 seconds and stop. But what a glorious SQ when the tracks play, I agree. I've tried singlePC, dualPC, WS2012r2 as controlPC, all the same. It's probably my DAC.
Here're what I'm doing:
1/ Accept the current situation, load one song at a time or select less than 2'10" DSD tracks and enjoy the moments.
2/ JplayMini can play anything without issues, even gapless. I use it on a bare bone WS2016 core, no network. SQ isn't JplayStreamer but close.
3/ Wait for the JPLAY next release.
Please note that there're people who manage to run JplayStreamer and MinimServer flawlessly, so you and I perhaps belong to the not very lucky small group. Still, this is a mile ahead from past players such as Bug Head and HySolid. Alternatives are Foobar and Roon, as far as I know. While waiting for the next release, maybe I should try one of those.
