FS#7471 - playback problems when in file browser

hi devs,

i had a strange bug: i had several vorbis-files from one album in my playlist. i listened to a song 3… it was just about to end (20 sec left). i wanted to go to track 9 afterwards. instead of moving in the playlist i went to the file browser, chose the file and selected “playlist → insert next”. i stayed in file brwoser when the track changed. there were some kind of “stuttering” (as if you start the song and go back a few times to the beginning before you really start -like sum-sum-summer…).. then it played ok. i tried to reconstruct the bug but that time it plyed fine. i had another smiliar (?) playback problem: as i once switched from file browser to wps during track change i got a “codec failure” message on the wps.. i stopped and played again, then it worked. (build: r13938 - 070720)

This isn't reproducible and the playback code has gone through a lot of changes since. Please open a new task if the issue is still present.

Hi Oliver,

Can you reproduce this at all? Do you use the “Advance Directory” feature?

hi steve,

i cant reproduce it, no.
whats the “advance directory” feature all about
and where do i find it?

(btw: dunno if this is important but those files in my bug report werent vorbis-files, they were mpc)

if you mean “directory cache” - yes, i use this.

Advance directory (my wrong terminology there) allows you to automatically listen to another directory/album when an album finishes; it has a couple of known issues, one of which results in similar symptoms to yours. The option is under Settings > General > Playback > Auto-Change Directory.
