FS#13018 - ALAC playback on iPod CLassic 7G 160GB

There is an ALAC playback problem in daily builds (since 2014-11). The playback somethimes works for one song but then crashes and shows ALAC file details as "? kbit/s", "0 MHz", "0 MB" and nothing happens when I press the Play button. After reboot the problem occurs again. It makes the ALAC playback impossible.

Now I'm using revision 9cb9f76M-140326 with patches from aroldan:

With this build there are no ALAC playback problems.

Alac hasn't changed in a very long time. Do you have trouble playing other files?

Luk Pe commented on 2014-12-18 18:52

No, the problem concerns only ALAC files. At first I thought that the files got corrupted during transfer, but on the older firmware I can play any album without errors.

Luk Pe,

Any updates on this? I'm trying to resurrect some of these old Rockbox bug reports. Have you tried the latest version, unpatched?
