Description Thomas Schweikle 2007-08-21 06:52:40 UTC
Description of problem:
xmms randomly stops playing.

Version-Release number of selected component 
(if applicable):

How reproducible:
Start xmms, then play some ogg or mp3 files. 
After a random time waiting xmms will just 
stop playback. Clicking "pause" two times 
makes xmms start playback again exactly at the 
point it stopped.
It looks a lot like xmms internaly pauses 
Other playsers do have the same problem. Thus 
I think it is not the players, it must be some 
bug within a library all of them are using.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xmms and all dependancies
2. start playback with a huge set of mp3- or 
Actual results:
xmms will randomly stop playback. sometimes 
within minutes, sometimes it takes hours.

Expected results:
xmms playing until the playlist is exausted, 
without randomly stopping playback.

Additional info:
you can click two times on "pause": with the 
first click xmms will go to pause mode, with 
the second click it will start playing again 
exactly where it stopped.

xmms stopping playback is only noticable because
a. no audio output anymore
b. timecounter does not increment/decrement any more
c. no "pause" sign
d. the title played has playing time left

I have tried other players too:
- kboodle
- gstreamer
- mplayer

all have the same problem.

I do not notice this error anymore with Fedora 8. I assume it fixed!
