Bug Description

Binary package hint: amarok

Version information:

$ amarok --version
Qt: 3.3.6
KDE: 3.5.5
Amarok: 1.4.3

Ubuntu 6.10, using Gnome

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start playing some song with amarok.
2. Go to "Adjust Date & Time" applet
3a. Change time backwards, or
3b. Change time forwards

What happens:
a) Amarok stops playing the song but is still in "play mode". Pressing Stop and then Play starts playing the song again.
b) Amarok changes to next track or something like that

What should happen:
Amarok should not care about system time changing.

Can you please upgrade to 1.4.5 and see if it's still a problem? Thanks

Problem still exists.

I found out that if I change the time forward eg. 1 minute, amarok skips 1 minute ahead in the current song. If the remaining song time is less than 1 minute, the next song in the playlist is played.

Hmm, I would think that wouldn't cause a problem in anything, but it looks like it is.

Could you please check bugs.kde.org for anything related to this and let us know if any bugs seem relevant? Thanks

It looks like the two bugs.kde.org links are to Amarok devs saying it's a xine-ui bug. Of the xine sourceforge tracker, on the 3rd link has a full discussion. That bug was closed in late 2004, but since it's still a problem maybe we can let them know it's still occurring.

Yes this is still happening, exact the same behaviour with:

Ubuntu 7.04

$ uname -a
Linux gondor 2.6.20-16-generic #2 SMP Sun Sep 23 19:50:39 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux

$ amarok --version
Qt: 3.3.7
KDE: 3.5.6
Amarok: 1.4.7

removing the remote watch since it is no longer availible

reasigning to xine-lib since this is a xine problem.

Changed in amarok:
status: Incomplete → Confirmed

Marking the Amarok bug as invalid since it is a xine problem and needs to be fixed there.
