Bug Description

I am able to reproduce the error. Also, tried the following:

1. put a sample .ogg file on a webserver and added that link as a radio station. when i tried to play, i got the same error.
2. I tried to play these ogg files from movie player and got the same error in the same dialog box like rhythmbox.
3. From mplayer, i am able to play these files without any problem.

For completeness, my versions are:

ubuntu version: 8.04.1
rhythmbox: 0.11.5-0ubuntu8

I invoked "rhythmbox -d" and the attached file consists of the debug data relevant to the error(i think) i got.
note that i have replaced part of the exposed url with "xxx" for privacy reasons.

thanks
Suman.

thank you for your bug report, does gst-launch-0.10 playbin uri=URI play it correctly?

hi sebastien,

first of all, thanks for all your work on this cool app. yes, i can play the stream fine with the gst-launch as follows:
$ gst-launch-0.10 playbin uri=http://stream.nute.net:8000/kohina/stream.ogg
Setting pipeline to PAUSED ...
Pipeline is PREROLLING ...
Pipeline is PREROLLED ...
Setting pipeline to PLAYING ...
New clock: GstAudioSinkClock

WARNING: from element /playbin0/abin/audiosink/audiosink-actual-sink-pulse: Compensating for audio synchronisation problems
Additional debug info:
gstbaseaudiosink.c(1190): gst_base_audio_sink_render (): /playbin0/abin/audiosink/audiosink-actual-sink-pulse:
Unexpected discontinuity in audio timestamps of more than half a second (0:00:02.963741496), resyncing
----END---
the lines from WARNING onwards appear in the middle of the playing stream. it stops playing for a sec and then picks up again, perhaps the next track in the stream. maybe rhythmbox is unable to do the same?

i tried to play the stream again and again using rhythmbox. at first i was able to reproduce the error 100% of the time. but late last night, i was able to play the stream without stopping. is it possible that the error is occurring when the stream download rate is lower than a certain threshold?

let me know if you need me to do further testing
Suman.

hi, when i try it with gst i can't hear anything

but when plying it in rythmbox it sometimes works.
but sometimes after a view seconds and ever after the first song rhythmbox stops playing, while the playbackbutton remains toggled.
at this point i even cannot start any other song from local playlists
when doubleklicking on the radio station after the playback stopped for the first time i get:
$ rhythmbox

You need to explicitly set elements to the NULL state before
dropping the final reference, to allow them to clean up.

the example is played correctly in intrepid, could you try if that's still an issue for you using intrepid?

with intrepid beta it plays ogg streams in the first place and stops playing when the title changes stating "internal stream error"
but the difference is, that rhythmbox now can resume playing when i select the same stream again.

still happens to intrepid ibex with kernel 2.6.27-7-generic and Rhythmbox 0.11.6 on a fresh install
i can reproduce this error:
* play any ogg stream
* wait for title/artist change in stream info
* error

what song? any song? do you use the crossfading option? does not using it makes a difference?

i now tried
* http://stream.nute.net:8000/kohina/stream.ogg
* http://www.stillaudio.com:8000/stillaudio.ogg
and
* http://dradio-ogg.t-bn.de/dlf_high.ogg

while the last one never changes it's title it also doesn't stop playing, except from lost connections when online with wifi
the first two, both crash when the title and artist changes
even enabling crossfading(didn't use it before) to 1sec doesn't help me

i simultaniously played those streams in mplayer to see if it's a connection or driver problem, but continued playing

Same bug here:

Kohina plays fine with VLC but stop between each songs with Rhythmbox. (i'm under Ibex)

Martin Prunières (keyserling) wrote :

The bug really seems to came from the gstreammer lib, as Totem has the error too.

I have the same problem with Rhythmbox 0.11.6 on Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10 with this stream url : http://www.oxyradio.net:8000/hd.ogg

This bug is not present with audacious or VLC

Thanks

It seems I'm now suffering from this problem as well; I wasn't just a few weeks ago, however, so perhaps a recent update caused this behavior. I'm using:

Hardy Heron 8.04
2.6.24-24-generic #1 SMP Wed Apr 15 15:11:35 UTC 2009 x86_64

I've also attached the debugging output that was triggered around the time when Rhythmbox started having troubles with the radio station <http://media.hiof.no/streams/m3u/nrk-mpetre-172.ogg.m3u>. I noticed that Rhythmbox shows the red circle with the white horizontal line next to local songs I try to play after the radio troubles. In fact, once I click on a local song, all subsequent songs are marked as unavailable in quick succession. This occurrance is included in the log file.

I was able to successfully play the <stream.nute.net>, <dradio-ogg.t-bn.de>, and <oxyradio.net> streams via the gst-launch-0.10 method, but only the latter two also worked within Rhythmbox (at all). They still had issues upon changing songs, however. The <stillaudio.com> stream didn't work at all with the gst-launch-0.10 method or with Rhythmbox.
