MP3 formats play without any problem, but the MP3pro files are not, every second the whole os will freeze for another second, so it is 1 second of music, then freezes 1 second, and so on...

Tested in a lot of builds, including the current one...

I tested with 64kbps MP3pro 22khz.
This task depends upon

Rockbox does not support MP3Pro directly, but it should play back the non-SBR part of the file, resulting in poorer quality (at least I think this is the way most MP3 players should handle MP3Pro). I've never even seen an MP3Pro file, though, so can't really verify...

I've tested the three files at, and they all work as expected. Could you try some of these and see if the problem persists?

Some feedback would be nice. Either you need to make this happen with the files I mention above, or you need to make one of the files that misbehave available for me to test. If there is no further reply, I'll have to close this task.
