Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

I'm able to put a CD in a drive and listen to a CD, but when I listen to my DAAP share, it downloads a list of all the music, it looks like it's playing the songs, but it doesn't make any noise.

It's an intermittent problem - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

If a stop and start the mt-daapd service on the server, I can now get one second of a song then the sound stops again but it still looks like it's playing. In addition, I can skip to the next song once or twice, then the program locks up and I need to forcibly quit it.

I've got a little more data on this - the box that I'm having problems with is a Dell Inspiron and I also have an older Toshiba - Rhythmbox works just fine off that one and also connects and plays from the DAAP share, so it must be some weird problem with hardware or a driver on the Dell.

I went back to get more data and report it to the upstream guys, but it now works, so this one can be marked closed or invalid
