XMMS skips on some MP3s


This is just a small quirk that is buggin me with XMMS. Some of my MP3s skip horribly when being played in XMMS. At first I thought they were bad files, so I switched to my Windows XP partition and played them in Winamp and they sounded perfect.

Does anyone know what is going on?

Thanks!

I have only had this problem when I am running low on resources. Maybe you have too many things running at the same time, or you don't have enough RAM, or a slow processor.

Eh, I really don't think thats a problem... I have 256mb, and a 2.6GHZ processor. I checked with KDE system guard; my resources where fine. Its with the same files repeatively... for example:

Everytime I play Hatebreed - Prepare for War, It skips at the same spots everytime. But in Windows it plays perfectly fine.

Try out another player, such as mp3blaster of mplayer and see if happens as well.

Okay, I just tried it with Noatun, and it did not skip. I really do not want to switch over and use Noatun, I don't really care for it. Is there any way I can fix XMMS or is there program that is better?

Thanks

Wink Fixed? not exactly

I didn't actually fix my problem... I just well, switched players. I found something called Amarok, its an awesome player, and NONE of my mp3s skipped either! I also found that for some reason it was reading my ID3 tags better too. I have no clue! Anyways, check it out if you want.
