Play fail on FLAC

Post by iamdooser » Sun Feb 01, 2009 4:49 pm

Double clicking to play a flac file causes failure. The player loads the tag info in the area directly above the seek bar, the seek bar goes grey, and the title field in the play queue goes bank (for the specific flac file).

I can get the file to play if I use the spacebar a few times to start playback instead of double click.

Below are logs for the following behavours:

Double click to start playback, hang, double click on mp3 that normally plays in Play:

I'm using 0.3 1077 on a Powerbook G4. Similar response on the stable release, 1071.

Ideas? Just as a note, everything seems to play fine in Cog.

Does the problem affect one specific file or all your flac files? Most of my music files are flac files and they all play fine in Play.

It's happening with the two latest albums I've acquired. I can still play other flacs as normal.

Are you using the latest version of Play?

I realize that this is a late reply, but my Play.app Library is 100% FLAC, and everything works. Whenever I get a new FLAC file, though, I tend to drag the file icon to the Play.app icon rather than double-clicking. It's a habit from when VLC wanted to open my FLAC files. But I just double-clicked a 16/44.1k FLAC file just now, and it loaded and played automatically in Play.app (this is on the latest Tiger with the latest FLAC and Play.app releases).

I had a similar problem. It only affected some FLAC files, not all of them. After trying to find out what the affected FLAC files had in common (different rip sources, different albums, etc.), I came to suspect their integrated thumbnail metadata, but I'm not sure if this is the cause. I unchecked the box "Rescan metadata before playback" in Preferences/General and it made the problem disappear. Checking the box again makes the problem reappear. It looks like a little bug to me. I'm using Mac OS X 10.6.8 / Play 0.3 (1071).
