xmms randomly stops playing
Last modified: 2007-12-09 05:29:10 EST
Description of problem:
xmms randomly stops playing.
Version-Release number of selected component
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
xmms will randomly stop playback. sometimes
within minutes, sometimes it takes hours.
xmms playing until the playlist is exausted,
without randomly stopping playback.
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:
all have the same problem.
I do not notice this error anymore with Fedora 8. I assume it fixed!
