Bug Description

Binary package hint: amarok

I've encountered this problem several times but it's not easy to reproduce the bug consistently. If given instructions, I'll try to reproduce it again in some other ways.

The problem shows up after having amarok paused for a few minutes (like in a going to the toilet pause) and it is resumed after. To begin with, the playback doesn't resume smoothly, instead it appears to play for an instant, pause for a very short time and then start playing again. After that, sometimes (and I can't give any more detail into this) what happens is that it sort of pauses and resumes every second. The time remaining figure goes down at two seconds intervals, thus showing only odd or even numbers.

The issue I've described is completely different from what the linked bug report says.

Are you sure this is the same bug?
