Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 464307
Kaffeine stops responding properly after pausing playback and working with other programs
Last modified: 2009-03-20 00:47:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Kaffeine stops playing sound, and responding properly, if left in background and paused.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I get this problem quite often. Curiously I get it with 350 Mbyte xvid's but not with 1GByte matroska's
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a rather big xvid movie (350 mbyte)
2. Reproduce it
3. Pause it
4. Start working with firefox, amarok, console
5. Get back to kaffeine
6. Hit play -> No sound, can't close application properly (have to kill it)
Movie should playback normally even if I left it paused for a day.
Should you need any more info, don't hesitate on contacting me.

Thank you for the bug report.
I have this problem as well. I've found that if I do a "killall npviewer.bin" before resuming playback, kaffeine works fine. I assume the issue is with flash not giving up control of the sound system. But I'm on x86_64, so perhaps it's a different issue.
