My Clip+ with RB 3.10 suffers from #12208
pretty badly - quite often, during playback it just skips to the next track with a loud 'squeak', which makes it even more distracting. It's pretty impossible to reproduce since it happens every now and then, and when you rewind back before the 'skipping point', it just plays to the end of the track as if nothing has happened.
I now have a file which exhibits this behavior almost every time. For copyright reasons I don't wish to share the file, but it's easy to obtain. It's track #08 from this digital download
downsampled to FLAC/L8 16 bits in foobar2000. The skipping happens pretty much every time at one point around 0:37.
- the file passed the foobar2000 integrity verifier inspection. File system on the card is also fine.
- the file is 16 bits 96 kHz (original download is 24 bits)
- after installing RB, the file used to play fine at least a number of times... Only recently I returned to it and found that it skips. Also sometimes it play just fine. I think it plays okay mostly when there was another track playing just before this one (i.e. #07), but this might be a coincidence.
- the music is quite laid-back until the point where it usually skips - then it begins being faster/more complex.
- just before it skips, a 'lightning bolt' icon appears in the top right corner (I assume it means accessing the FS). If the playback isn't going to skip, the icon does NOT appear.
- reverting to original settings didn't help
- I never experienced a skip on any other track from this album (all are converted to 16b/96k)
- this file has the highest bitrate of everything I have - 1058 kbps according foobar2000
- if I FF past the 0:38 time, there's no skipping on the rest of the file
To me it seems that file access + FS fragmentation + large bitrate (@ 96 kHz nonetheless) = possibility to lose the next set of bits. But obviously it happens on lesser files as well, so who knows.
Hope this helps to debug the issue. If you need more info or want the sample file anyway... Lemme know.
And thanks for the great RB work guys
