Rhythmbox seek doesn't work as expected

Bug #35843 reported by Vytas on 2006-03-21
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gstreamer0.10 (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description


After seeking with a seek bar, playing sometimes (~50% cases) stops on both MP3 and Vorbis. It is possibly gstreamer unrelated cause totem media player works fine.

No errors in terminal.

After such stopping, when I press Pause/Play, the palying resumes.

Thanks for your bug. Do you still have that issue? Does it happen on some specific files or all the mp3 and ogg with rhythmbox and banshee? What soundcard do you have? Does the application hang (maybe bug #35447 which is fixed now)?

Yes, the issue is still there. It does not seem to depend on the specific file. The application does NOT hang, also totem works fine.

vytas@naujas:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel

Maybe it is hard to describe the every aspect of the bug precisely, so Ive made a screencast which is self explanatory (it's a GIF, no sound, but you can notice if a time is counting or not).

I sometimes had the same problems but not as often as you, Vytas. But I don't remember having it lately... I'll add a comment here when it happens again for me with some backtrace information

Sebastian Dröge (slomo) wrote :

Haha, that's good. The first time I tried it again after replying here it hanged... ok, so here we go. first attachment is the complete backtrace with all the mono junk in there... the second is only the gst-related threads

I have a feeling that this mostly happens on vbr files but not sure yet...

backtrace with all threads

backtrace with all the gst threads

And I can confirm that this only happens with rhythmbox and banshee, not totem. Maybe caused by the life-seeking that both have...

banshee running with GST_DEBUG=3. killed after a stalled seek

ok, this time without colours... an mp3, killed after stall

the same with a vorbis file

should be assigned to gst-plugins-base0.10 imho as this should be a playbin problem

It's not fixed for me in the latest dapper :(
That's why I changed the status back to "confirmed".

But it is fixed upstream thus we will get it when they finally released new tarballs which should be the case in the next days
