|Summary:||Media Player repeatedly forgets how to play an AVI file|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] Media player||Reporter:||Andrew Flegg <andrew>|
|Status:||RESOLVED WORKSFORME||QA Contact:||media-player-bugs|
|Priority:||Low||CC:||andrew, andre_klapper, musoutensei|
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: 1) Download the above AVI (warning: 712MB) 2) Save to an external MiniSD card on an N810 running OS2008, in a "Video" directory under the root. 3) Open Media Player. 4) Select "Ghostbusters" in the library and click on the play button. 5) Seek to some point about 3/4 of the way through after the file starts playing. 6) Wait for the file to continue playing and then drag the position bar to the rightmost edge. 7) Wait for the file to stop. 8) Press "Play" again. EXPECTED OUTCOME: The file starts playing again. ACTUAL OUTCOME: Media Player thinks for a while, but then stops, showing the file's icon in the content area. REPRODUCIBILITY: always EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: This happened before extra software was installed, but reproducibility has only been tested with mplayer, Canola2 and LXDoom installed. OTHER COMMENTS: The file has not yet finished uploading, it should be uploaded by 2007-12-15T17:00Z (i.e. 5pm UTC)
Andrew, is that still in issue in latest Diablo? I'm somehow unwilling to remove half of my MP3s to create enough free space to test this... :-P
(In reply to comment #1) > Andrew, > is that still in issue in latest Diablo? I'm somehow unwilling to remove half > of my MP3s to create enough free space to test this... :-P Heh. Yeah, this - and similar effects which are probably manifestations of the same problem still occur. For example, I was just at 21:17 of a 30 min, very low quality, 3GP file when it just stopped. It would, in this circumstance, start playing but any positioning on the scrollbar just moved it forward about 1min, making getting back into position frustrating (actually, the whole scroll to position thing doesn't cover any of my use cases, but that's a different issue). Irritatingly, it stopped again at the same position, but the file plays perfectly on my desktop Linux system.
Hi Andrew, is this still an issue in Fremantle? (WONTFIX for Diablo as Diablo is in maintenance mode and Nokia will only provide bugfixes for critical issues if at all.)
I will investigate.
Cannot reproduce in Fremantle (1.2009.41-10)
I ran into what could to be this same (or related) issue yesterday on N900 1.2009.42-11.002. It isn't clear if your inability to play the file persisted after the initial try, in my case it does. I was watching a movie (stored on the internal memory): format : AVI video : XviD at 1 896 Kbps (0.232BPP), 632*518 (1.220AR), 25.000 fps audio #0 : MPEG-1 Audio layer 3 at 128 Kbps, 2 channels, 48.0 KHz I paused the movie and left the media player to see something on youtube (via web browser). When I closed that out and went back to the media player it said 'Unable to play media. Media format not supported.' I continued to get that message the few times I tried to play the file again last night (persisted after device reboot). Just now I attempted to play the file again and it worked, even resumed from where I left off. Not sure what triggered that behavior, but going through the same process left me with the format not supported message: 1: Pause movie. 2: Opened browser window, watched a youtube video. 3: Closed browser window. 4: Returned to media player to resume playback. 5: Format not supported.
