Flac files only playback about 4 to 6 min of song before going to next track (sometimes 30sec). I used all versons of flac. looks like codec buffer resets its self after 2nd refill at about 10000K. sometimes playback has brokin sound. I tried reseting config settings but it does not help. everything was fine about 3 months ago. i dont know what build could of done it. Please help fix the codec buffer problem.
This task depends upon

Does this still happen with the latest code?

Same here, iPod nano, latest code (daily build, 9.1.2007).

Reopened again after Michael Helming reported that the issue still exists. Michael, can you tell me more about the bug? Does it always happen, or only on some files?

The problem occurs on my girlfriend's ipod, with all "long" flac files (there are a few that have >10mins length). The problem didn't go away after updating to the daily build of Jan 9,2007, as metioned before (the version that was on the iPod before might have been about half an year older).

The same files play fine on my iAudio X5 with rockbox, as well as on my computer (using amarok/xine).

Seriously, you really need to test a more recent version of Rockbox than January 9...

I installed a new version. Additionally, I diffed the FLACs to the ones on my computer and it turned out that there must have been some transmission errors: some of the files were different. After retransmission onto the device they now play flawless. Either that or the new rockbox version seems to have resolved the issue, so I think this can be closed.
