Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 495272
Xine skips the first few seconds of flac songs
Last modified: 2009-04-11 04:45:48 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin listening to a playlist in Amarok or Xine
2. The skips should become apparent after repeating some songs
The first few seconds of some songs is skipped
Songs play normally
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?
Yes, just flacs.
Adjusting summary, we'll continue to track this in the aforementioned upstream xine-lib report. Thanks.
