Decibel stops playing at end of 24/88 files

Post by kemoly » Tue Jul 24, 2012 1:14 am

I have a few 24/88 FLAC files that will cause Decibel to stop and not move to the next song when it reaches the end of the song. It shows the progress bar at the full time of the track, does not stop playing, does not move to the next track.
Does not happen in every one but enough that it will happen once or twice in an album.
The files have mostly been ripped from SACD ISOs with sacd-extract, converted to FLAC via Korg AudioGate or Weiss Saracon.
Please help.

I've heard of this happening once in a while but never consistently enough to reproduce and debug.

Are you using an external DAC? If so, as an experiment, does using the built-in audio on your Mac change anything? If not, would you be able to enable logging (see http://forums.sbooth.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=5055) and post the result after the problem occurs?

Yes, I use a Musical Fidelity V-DAC II. Will do the requested testing tonight and let you know.

I upgraded to Mountain Lion and since then I am unable to consistently reproduce the problem. This weekend I'll test it on my other Mac which is still on Lion. I'll let you know.
