Bug Description

I have thousands of MP3 and FLAC songs on my library. I usually play music on Oneiric 64-bit in random order and sometimes when gmusicbrowser automatically changes the song, sound just stops and I just receive an error "Playing error : Resource not found. at /usr/bin/../share/gmusicbrowser/ line 135."

I need to skip the song and double-click it the song in order to play it.

 I got this error frequently in Ubuntu 11.10. Just got it after sorting out update to 12.04.

"Resource not found" means either gstreamer can't open the file, or it can't open the audio output.
As you can play the file on a second try, It means it is the latter.

It may be caused by the audio driver not allowing multiple connections, and somehow the connection from the previous file was not yet closed when opening the connection for the next file.

You can try changing the output device in the audio tab, to pulseaudio or alsa.
You can also try enabling the gapless option in the advanced options for gstreamer, also in the audio tab.

Well I got this problem too. Just installed a fresh 12.04 and it worked ok. Then I did a few installs including enabling all this

and now it won play, not even at a second try. Unisntalled (Completly remove) and re-installed with no sucess. Maybe one of the things I installed broke it.

Tried something else:

Removed completely with synaptic.
Reinstalled with Software Center.
Now it works correctly and also displays the green music icon instead of the cool camel.

So Synaptic install is what seems to break it.

The problem kept coming back after logoff or restart. Removing library folders and adding them again solved the problem. Finally, figured that the partitions were the music was were not auto-mounting. If I mount the volumes manually the problem disappears. So at least, for me, it is not bug. Now to tweak the automount.

I'm also on Ubuntu/precise and got the same results as Aixa Ardin. My music is on a partition that for some reason didn't automount like it normally does. That caused gmusicbrowser to give this same error. The same thing happens in v1.1.10. Remounting the partition fixed the issue.

While this issue isn't entirely just because of an error in gmusicplayer, wouldn't it seem like a really good idea to look over the start-up process of gmusicplayer, and make sure it automounts all usb drivers? I was tearing my hair out before i figured out what was wrong myself.
