Description Peter Fernandes 2009-04-10 22:34:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Using Xine or Amarok using the Xine backend, playback of the beginning (as much as fifteen seconds or so) of some songs is skipped.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin listening to a playlist in Amarok or Xine
2. The skips should become apparent after repeating some songs
Actual results:
The first few seconds of some songs is skipped

Expected results:
Songs play normally

Additional info:
I'm not sure if this is dependent on whether the song has been played before or not; but according to this url (http://bugs.xine-project.org/show_bug.cgi?id=225), a reboot fixes it temporarily.  Also, I've noticed that Amarok randomly (or so it seems) skips playlist entries. eg. It will play a few songs in the correct linear order, then skip one or two.  I'm not sure if these two bugs are related.

This is just for flac files, as per the upstream report you referenced?
Comment 2 Peter Fernandes 2009-04-10 23:42:32 EDT
Yes, just flacs.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2009-04-11 04:45:48 EDT
Adjusting summary, we'll continue to track this in the aforementioned upstream xine-lib report.  Thanks.
