XMMS won't resume after pause


XMMS 1.2.9 -

I hit the pause key, and output stops. But when I hit play or pause again, the || pause symbol turns into the play triangle... but playback doesn't resume. I can scroll about in the song, timer changes, but no playback. Have to hit play again, and the song starts from the beginning.

Anyone else had this problem?

Hey there,

Are you using KDE? If so, I guess its possible that during the time the song is paused, ArtsD kicks in and grabs /dev/dsp, thus preventing XMMS from accessing it. If that is the case, you can install a xmms-arts plugin, that will make XMMS use KDE's sound server).

If thats not the problem, and if you are using ALSA, try telling XMMS to use that instead of OSS as its sound output (you may have to install a xmms-alsa plugin).

HTH

I am using KDE, but I have arts disabled - no need for a software mixer with my soundcard.
I'm using XMMS' ALSA output.

Thanks for the ideas!

OK, weirdness:

Switching to XMMS' OSS output plugin solved the problem.
So apparently, XMMS doesn't play well with ALSA, but plays perfectly with ALSA'S OSS emulation.

Can anyone explain this, or offer a fix?

I'm glad you fixed it

Unfortunately using ALSA's OSS output produces pops and clicks on my box
