Amarok skips the last seconds of a track when using daap

Bug #153814 reported by Sebastian Kaps on 2007-10-18
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
amarok (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: amarok


I have mt-daapd running on another machine on the network.
iTunes and rhythmbox can connect to it and play tracks without any problems.
When using amarok the last 10 seconds or so of a track are always skipped.
This only happens with a daap source, not when playing a local file.

I'm running amarok 1.4.7 on Ubuntu Gutsy (AMD64) with xine output plugin and alsa.
I have had the same problem with previous versions of amarok 1.4.x, but there was a time when it worked flawlessly (maybe in 1.4.5, but I'm not sure).

I can confirm this. I'm running Amarok 1.4.7 on Ubuntu Gutsy (i386) with xine and alsa. Amarok skips the last few seconds of mt-daapd streamed songs.

Confirmed. Same behavior.
The point at which it skips seems to be quite random, but it's mostly within the last 10 seconds of a song.

Is this still a problem with Amarok 2.0.2?

Not sure. Still using Amarok 1.4.10 :-(
I read in KDE/Amarok bugs list that this issue will not be fixed because development on Amarok 1.4 series has stopped.

OK. If this turns out to still be a problem in Amarok 2 feel free to reopen the report by setting the status to "New" again.
