View Full Version : Playlists Not Playing

I have been having a problem since 6.0.1 (I am on 6.0.3 now), where one playlist doesn't start playing properly. I press Play on the web interface or remote, and the songs queue up properly, the first one displays, the red "play" arrow is lit, etc., but nothing actually starts playing. To get it to play, I need to do one of the following:

1. Fast forward to the next song
2. Click on the first song in the list in the web interface
3. Press stop, then play.

I am using iTunes, but I have also tried not using itunes and I get the same behavior with an exported version of this playlist. I normally shuffle it by song, but the shuffle state doesn't affect the behavior. There are 5400 songs in the playlist, but nothing else unusual about it. All my other playlists work fine. I just tried completely recereating the playlist from scratch, no change.

Any ideas? I don't want to file a bug if it's just me being stupid somehow.

I have noticed a delay between the web interface and the Squeezebox only when first starting a playlist after powering up the computer. The web interface shows that the song is playing but there is no sound from the speakers until about 10 to 15 seconds later. I presume it has something to do with buffering. Press "Play" and give it a little time and see if the audio eventually starts playing.

It's not a buffering issue. It only happens with the one playlist, and it never starts playing- I've left it for hours.

does it contain relative paths?
does it contain references to files that no longer exist?

No relative paths, and no dead files (at least that I know of). Wouldn't iTunes flag a file that no longer exists? Also, the "Everything" playlist works fine.

Then what you may want to look at is the output in the log with d_playlist and
d_source turned on.

Thanks for the help KDF. Here is the log output. I don't really know what I'm looking for, but I don't see anything obviously wrong here:

what I'm not seeing in this log is the "track start event", which you should be
seeing in 6.0.3 and 6.1.

Could you please give 6.1 a quick try, and if it is still a problem file a bug
reports with a d_source log attached from 6.1.

Strangely enough, this behavior has started again. I am still on the nightly from a few days ago, and have made no changes to anything.


I have been having a problem since 6.0.1 (I am on 6.0.3 now), where one playlist doesn't start playing properly. I press Play on the web interface or remote, and the songs queue up properly, the first one displays, the red "play" arrow is lit, etc., but nothing actually starts playing.
