FS#12970 - Music stops beyond a certain point on some tracks

I am using rockbox 3.13, and on some tracks, the music stops from a certain point and the next track is played.
For instance, this track ( stops silently at 1:28 and the next track (04) is played (as if the track was 1:28 long). If I come back or even reboot, it will still bug at 1:28. But if I use Sansa’s, the track will be played correctly.
resetting prefs didn’t changed anything.

Not a bug per se but FLAC should probably try to push through a minor error. :)

The file has one or more broken frames. Apparently Rockbox’s FLAC decoder bails out too easily. VLC played it through that time index but there is a small skip there.

Perhaps Rockbox’s decoder should be a bit more tolerant?

The command-line FLAC decoder returns:

03 It’s a Hard Life.flac: 35% complete03 It’s a Hard Life.flac: * Got error co
03 It’s a Hard Life.flac: *** Got error code 2:FLAC
_FRAME_CRC_MISMATCH 03 It’s a Hard Life.flac: ERROR while decoding data

The command-line FLAC decoder returns:

How do you access it please ?

I was just using the command-line decoder from to check it.

Does Rockbox uses the same ?
