Some dubious Vorbis files, and how they play on Rockbox
Because I'm a poor student whose skills with Japanese are nonexistent, it is not a huge surprise that I get quite some of my music off of YouTube (because, yes, my ears are just that bad and I can't hear the non-transparency). But watching online wasn't enough - what if I wanted to take my music to, say, the dentist's office?
So I loaded the latest RockBox onto my 2nd-generation iPod Nano (I think the build was from about a week ago) and had a go. I ran oggenc from the command line, and converted some of my FLAC collection (which I legally took from CDs I own) into Vorbis. These files I dumped onto my iPod, and they played fine.
Smooth sailing. The problem came when I tried to extend my geekiness to more dubious regions. I found a nice site, TinyOgg. (Brief for those who don't know: it allows you to download YouTube video, optionally audio-only, in Vorbis/Theora.) I gleefully entered some of my favorite songs into the queue and downloaded them when they were finished.
Well, they play fine in VLC - that much is certain. But when I put them on my iPod with the other, less shady Vorbis files, they don't play. This is especially noticeable because I have a lot of these...illegal...Vorbis YouTube-rips in the same directory on my iPod; I select the first of them, and I'm taken to the "now playing" screen, where I catch a glimpse of the last song, before I'm dumped back at the file browser screen. Plainly RockBox ran through all the Vorbis's which somehow didn't work and then treated them as "done playing, taking you back to the main screen now". I even accessed the files on the iPod and opened them with VLC; they seemed to play fine, so it was probably not a matter of corrupted copying.
Is there a way to remedy this? Am I doing something wrong? Bawwww =(
