Hi,

This is a bit weird and I'm sure its probably a Windows XP / OS fluck up but do any of you have any ideas please?

All was fine Ive had no problems innearly a year and have two squeeseboxes. The other day I foolishly installed a new version Windows of Media Player on my PC. Anyway I coudn't get it to do what I wanted so I uninstalled it . Since that point Ive had no problems playing radio stations but if I try to play a music file slimserver says its playing it and the squeezbox shows its title and scrolls 'now playing, track title ect' Only it isn't actually playing? Its just holding it at the start of the track and doing nothing in silence.

I have taken my PC back to an earlier restore point and just in case installed the new version of slimserver (6.5.1) and updated firmware on my slimservers. I've even done a special dance but no luck.

Its really annoying..... Has this or anything similar happened to you?

Thanks Mark I will try that tonight. It did stop working before I installed the new server though and before the XP rollback.

You never though these creatures are funny things.. will let you know.

Hi,

This problem is still with me. Radio is fine. New recordings are fine. All my music files recorded last year simply wont play.

The fix of replacing the socketwrapper did work... for a while then the problem re-occured for no apparent reason.

So I 'repaired-re-installed' my copy of XP and re-installed slimserver etc and that fixed it... and then it re-occured again nearly immediately.

So I then re-stalled Win XP completely from scratch but the problem is still there on the new install. It's absolutely vexing.

I've rolled back numerous full versions of slim server (and socketwrappers)and it makes no difference.

I belive that its affecting all of the music files that were originally recorded using ITunes (whih is 210 out of 214 albums! Music Files that I recently added using FLAC / Winamp are fine as well as any radio streaming

Any final suggestions as I really dont want to re-encode all my albums.. ? especially as a good many of them came off CD's that left with the ex.... I cant really ask to borrow them all again now can I.

If you problem is only with m4a files, then the maybe it is related to the transcoding ?

Hi,

Thanks for the advice. I followed the links and installed 'Lame' It hasn't worked.

Still no music. C'mon chaps (and ladies) I know one of you can do this. I'll do anything to get it working again... well .. almost...

Thanks

Try playing the track with the debugging option d_source enabled. Post the results here.

This is typical of security s/w (e.g. Firewall AV) blocking socketwrapper from working. The Ian Cook revised socketwrapper fixes this problem for many users but sometimes it is a case of adding entries in the security s/w.

What security s/w are you using ? Norton, NOD32, McAfee, ZoneAlarm ?

Tristan
2007-03-01, 17:22
Hi, Thanks,

Im using none of those. I'm using (Grisoft)AVG Free edition. Which I was using before this happened. I haven't installed any other blockers though of course Win XP is using its firewall.

As I said before though it may not be relevant to your point some files eg. new ones taken from CD using Flac are working.

Closer?

The following says that slimserver decided this file
C:/Documents and Settings/Tristan/My Documents/My Music/Base Ibiza 2004 (Disc 2)/2-12 Dancin (Fuzzy Hair Mix).m4a
is to be treated as a "mov" type file and should be played in Flac format. To play it requires that it is played using the application mov123.exe and the output piped (implicitly using socketwrapper) into Flac.exe to create a flac stream output.

Files which need transcoding using socketwrapper will not play because something is stopping socketwrapper.

Can you be more specific about the version of AVG software you have installed ?

Hi,

Sorry for the delay. I've been away / had no time. OK The problem still persists. Ive uninstalled AVG just in case. I have just installed Avast Home edition 4.7. Im not sure the AV software iusnt a red herring but this is a virtually clean insall now with hardly anything on this PC. Its just used as a music server running XP Pro.

Just tried to play something. Here is the dubug code. Is this still looking the same. Im mystified. Your help is appreciated. Thanks

I believe in some other threads this happened when you played Internet radio, then went back to your local collection.

I wish I could find those threads. I can't, but IIRC a workaround was to reboot the player by pressing and holding the power button on the remote.

Hi Mark,

Thanks again for responding.

My 2 players have been hard booted, soft booted, cuddle booted and whispered to in to in tounges by sultry maidens (at great personal expence..)

I've tried rebooting the PC then playing files or playing the files then rebooting the PC Still no luck. I think (though you can never be quite certain) that I've tried every combination of file / radio/ reboot / non boot / tickle stick play now.

Any other ideas or boot file combinations? I'll send champagne or beer tokens whichever you prefer..

Cheers

LOL!

I was going to suggest a factory reset (unplug the power, press and hold ADD and replug the power) but your log is indicating SlimServer is having trouble transcoding. The process isn't working or isn't allowing SlimServer to control it.

I think there were some changes recently regarding which decoder to use for decoding AAC or Apple Lossless files. Unfortunately I believe it was pre-6.5.1, so you should have it. Still, at this point, it wouldn't hurt to try the latest nightly - what have you got to lose?

Hmm, vexing isn't it. Worth a try though..

I downloaded the new version but it woudn't start. It said it was starting but it just never did. Maybe there is a clue in that or maybe there isn't

I uninstalled it. Rebooted the old PC and reinstalled your currrent 6.5. For some reason it decided it didnt like where my music files were located and chose a directory that my music was not in.

So.. I moved my music to that directory (as I hadn't tried that one yet) but it didn't work.

Radio is fine. FLAC recorded files are fine. Old files just still wont play.

Next and a prize for the wittiest.

Cheers Mark.
