View Full Version : Erratic scrolling with Internet Radio Stream in 6.0

I have noticed erratic scrolling with the following internet radio stream.

http://www.somafm.com/indiepop.pls

I see the same scrolling behavior at home with my SliMP3s and now with
SoftSqueeze2. It jumps back to the beginning of the Text as soon as the
last character is displayed. With other streams and files directly off
the Slimserver, the Scroll continues until the first character is back
to its original position at which point is pauses before it begins to
scroll again.

I know that this stream scrolled normally under 5.4.1 and have only been
seeing this problem since upgrading to 6.0. I normally access this
stream through SHOUTCast plugin, but see the same behavior when I tune
in directly with the link above.

I am currently running the 3-28-05 Nightly of 6.0 on a Fedora Core3 box.

I agree this could be improved - could you file a bug for it.

[I speculate that it occurs whenever the stream sends metadata - this stream may be sending it more frequently than others.]

Tom,

I've just added a change which hopefully make this work the way it used to. This should be in tomorrows 6.1 nightly - could you
check this and report back?

Thanks,

Adrian

Adrian,

Your fix seems to have done the trick.

Thanks,
