View Full Version : Newly ripped tracks will not play

I ripped a new recording of Mahler's 2nd Symphony using WinAmp. The mp3 tracks play fine in WinAmp. SlimServer 6.51 sees them, I can select the tracks, but if I try and play them, the elapsed time does not increase, the vu bars are dead, and there is no sound. The other albums I ripped at the same time work just fine.

Actually, it seems to be related to using the forward button in SoftSqueeze 3.21. Once I do it, the track does not play.

What could the matter be?

I've had this happen when the file permissions weren't correct. If
SlimServer is running on a UNIX machine make sure that the slimserver user
can read the new mp3 files.

The world can read all the files. the first track plays, but not the second one. They have identical file permissions.

Could it be a database screwup somehow?

For some albums, the first track plays, but not the others. WinAmp plays them perfectly. User slimserver owns the directory and all the tracks. What can be wrong?

Are you trying to play the track using softsqueeze?

If so see this post: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?p=145905#post145905
post #5 - which gives a solution to the problem of Softsqueeze not playing some MP3 tracks.


I note that your file is:
ID3 Tag Version:

Thanks Ramage. Is someone fixing this bug?
