View Full Version : Error playing MP3

2007-06-09, 14:46

I recently did an server upgrade and some of my files do not play anymore. Here is waht I was able to find in the log. Can anybody help me get to the bottom of this?

Hrm.. that's a strange error.. I'm not a windows expert, ( I am a linux expert :) but I would run a drive repair util, or possibly clear entire database and re-scan.

What version of SlimServer are you running then/now?

I am not sure what was the old version, but here is the env that I have now:
SlimServer Version: 6.5.2 - 12047 - Windows XP - EN - cp1251
Server IP address:
Perl Version: 5.8.8 MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
MySQL Version: 5.0.22-community-nt

I have re-scanned the library from the scratch completely several times. I also disabled iTunes and MusicMagick in the config.

Windows checkdisk does not report any errors. I also find it very strange that it is able to read ID3 tags while scanning, but then refuses to play the file.

I can play the file just fine in Winamp. This error is actually happening for quite a few files in my library. But then again, other files do play fine....
