    Tracks Fail to Finish - Jumps to Next Track in List (Squeezelite-X)

    Apologies for this probably not being a very smart question, but hopefully somebody can explain this to me in words of one syllable.

    My setup is multiple Squeezebox Radios, a Squeezebox Touch, and LMS running on a home theater PC. I also run the excellent Squeezelite-X on my office PC.

    My problem is that when I add a bunch of tracks to the play list in Squeezelite-X, they play fine but mysteriously often jump to the next track before completing. I have not been able to identify a particular point at which this jumping takes place (i.e. a particular time before the end of the track). It doesn't seem to be anything to do with how long the track is.

    Hopefully this is a really easy fix. I don't know if Squeezelite-X is actually anything to do with the issue; it's possible it's some other aspect (e.g. LMS itself). I am not particularly technical, so please bear this in mind if you are kind enough to address this issue.

    Many thanks for any help.

    Not sure what you mean, Michael. The format of the track (Mp3, FLAC, etc.)?

    Local files on my network. No problems with Spotify or other streaming services.

    I have a small Intel NUC machine connected to various 1-3TB drives with all my media, including my iTunes library. I let iTunes organize my music, so these are effectively my music source files. LMS uses the iTunes library location to get the files. I often make playlists in iTunes, which I export as M3U files that LMS can read. The skipping definitely occurs in those. Not sure if being in a playlist is related to the unwanted behavior. I will do an experiment as if it happens in single albums.

    Thanks
