Anyone else have XMMS stop playing the stream from time to time? Pretty
random, I haven't been able to find any cause yet. Clicking play again
makes it start going, so it's not a crash.

Please try running the server with --d_source and perhaps --d_stream while you
are playing with xmms. The debug output could give a hint as to what caused the
stop.

Yes, this happens to me. On RedHat 9 with xmms-mp3 library.

I don't think it's server-side, but here we go. Looks just like normal.

I think it's an XMMS problem, I was just asking here because I'm already
on this list and I figured others would have had the same issue. So
Scott, what version are you on and which output plugin? I'm using
xmms-1.2.7-25mdk on Mandrake 9.2 with the artsd plugin, arts-1.1.3-7mdk
running under XFce4 rather than KDE.

My assumption was that it was a client issue, too. Looking at the
fishbone interface to my webserver, the songs never actually stopped
playing. Although the stream did end at the end of a song.

I'll have to get debug output later. I only have ssh access to my
machine at the moment.

[scott@moe .xmms]$ grep output config
output_plugin=/usr/lib/xmms/Output/libesdout.so
[scott@moe .xmms]$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/xmms/Output/libesdout.so
xmms-1.2.7-21.p
[scott@moe .xmms]$ rpm -q xmms-mp3
xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.p.fr1

I'm running under gnome.

So if it barfs with both esd and artsd, it sounds even more like an
internal xmms bug.

FWIW, last year I was having some issues with XMMS stopping in
mid-stream on some internet streams. But at the time, I was seeing some
flakage in just about any long-persisting connection, so I wrote it off
to ISP wierdness.

In my situation, the stream is local to the client, so there should be
no network/ISP issues.

fwiw, I stream from my slimserver (at home) to xmms (at work) five
days a week and haven't had this problem. I'm using a fairly recent
cvs checkout of slimserver (updated semi-randomly) and xmms 1.2.8
on debian/sid.
I hope that info is helpful.
