Description of problem:
XMMS will not proceed to the next song in a playlist of music files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Cut a CD to OGG format using grip (but doesn't matter - existing files, incl.
MP3 will do)
2. Select the OSS output plugin in XMMS
3. Start a new playlist
4. Add the newly-ripped songs to the playlist
5. Hit play
Actual Results: First song plays, but that's it. Need to press the next song
button to get it going again. This only happens when using the OSS output
plugin. With the ALSA plugin, it works fine.
Expected Results: Playlist should play through automatically, without
intervention. That's the whole point of playlists. :-)
I have no idea which component this bug is actually in. For all i know, it
could be the ALSA OSS emulation. There is no way i can tell, since OSS doesn't
support my sound chipset (via vt8233a) at present. If bug 54905 is fixed, we
might get further with this...
I'm not using ALSA. Just the standard OSS emu10k1 driver for my Audigy, and it
works a-ok here. I'm guessing it's Alsa OSS emulation.
Under kernel-2.4.20-2.9, VT8233 chips are supported, OSS works fine, and XMMS
plays through playlists correctly.
