Description Nils Philippsen 2007-10-05 08:39:28 UTC
Description of problem:

When listening to audio CD, totem inserts small gaps between tracks -- it seems
to reposition the drive head when it should just play the whole "stream" in one
go. This is especially disturbing when listening to live recordings.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pop audio CD in drive, preferably a live recording where the transition
between two tracks does matter
2. Cue to a few seconds before end of one track
3. Listen to it making the transition to the next track
Actual results:

It "skips", inserts a gap, repositions the laser on the CD

Expected results:

Smooth transition between the tracks with no audible gap.

Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2007-10-05 10:47:48 UTC
Audio CD playback was removed from Totem's UI in Fedora 7, and completely
removed in F8. Try using Rhythmbox from F8 instead, and let me know if it fits
the bill. It should do what you want with the cross-fading enabled in the

Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2007-10-05 12:02:03 UTC
Rhythmbox with cross-fading enabled (and transition time set to 0) works. I
wonder, why isn't this enabled by default?

Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2007-10-05 12:31:04 UTC
It showed a bunch of bugs in some decoders/demuxers as well as having a few bugs
of its own. The plan is to enable it when it's stable enough.
