Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 842649
Playback sometime breaks after next track starts to play (automatically)
Last modified: 2013-07-31 16:52:07 EDT
Description of problem:
When track ends and a new one is selected (shuffle enabled), sometimes the track is not played. Rhythmbox still displays controls like it is playing, but nothing is played and progress controll is at the start. Clicking play button does not work too, problem can be resolved by clicking back and forward (or vise-versa).
Never experienced this problem when manually moving to next/previous tranch via controls, only when player switches after completing the track.
Did not occurr when tracks are played with shuffle off, but this mode was little used to claim so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.97 (Fedora 17)
When listening to music it occurrs every day few times, but intermitent.
Steps to Reproduce:
The only suspicion for reproducing the issue is when switching between different formats of files, but not certain and does not happen all the time. I have flac and ogg files only.
Playback stops and play button does not work. Back and forward button clicked once each in any order solve the problem. This happend intermitently.
Playback should never break after switching to other track.
I had Fedora 16 x86 on this box and it worked fine.
The issue only apeared after installing Fedora 17 x86_64. I installed it from live CD formatting all systems partitions, but keeping /home partition as it was and created a new user with same name reusing existing home directory (SELinux context update went fine automatically, no problems with any other software, probably not related to this rhythmbox problem too).
Same here, when the played file type changed from ogg to mp3 or back.
Enabling "Crossfade between tracks" with 0,1 seconds, is a suitable workaround.
There is also a Bug-Report for Ubuntu: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/978604
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
