Bug Description

The bug I had affect me disrupted a few mp3s I have on my desktop to test when updating. I don't have many other audio files anywhere else on my linux partition, so I don't know if this would affect other formats or other locations.

When updating to 10.4, I found that the alsamixer reset my master output to 0. I reset this, but found problems with my test mp3s.

Several different programs played the files in different ways:

Audacity, being an editing program, showed the about a second of blank audio, about a second of the start of the song, and about 8 seconds towards the end. Audacity played the audio like this.

Movieplayer/Totem would play about a half second of the start, then stop with the following error: "Failed to Parse Stream"

Rhythmbox played the first half second of the song. It did not display any errors

The rollover/ preview function behaved like rhythmbox.

The file sizes were not unusually small, so it doesn't look like they were corrupted.

Other mp3s and videos were okay when playing from my external HD.

I think the package was related to the restricted media formats, but since they play from other sources, I am not sure.

Will try to play the file on another system and let you know

Apparently, pbl came from the mp3 as I am not able to read them on Windows (I could a few months (years?) ago still).
