Playing songs coverted to FLAC cuts playback before reaching the end [#15213]

Post by angelbr » Mon Nov 19, 2018 11:55 am

When playing FLAC files (via DLNA), the FIRST time I play the song it cuts the song before reaching the end.

Monitoring the transcoded_media_files folder, when the MMA ends the conversion and updates the duration time on the file transcoded, at this moment the play stops. If there is another song in the queue, it starts to play, otherwise the playback stops.
The 2nd and subsequent times it is played, it plays to the end, that is because the file is already transcoded. If I delete the files in the folder, the problem happens again...

Transcode TO MP3 files, or WAV files works ok. But im interested in transcode to flac.

I have tested with different compression levels (from 0 to 10) with the same result...
I have tried different Media Renderers and Control points, with identical results...

On the MMA5 BETA it also does the same...

Hi,
Very hard to test and confirm as there are several ways to do that.

Can you please make step by step of each test you have done along with some screenshots of MMW server Auto Conversion settings (device one also if you customized by Device).

I tried several ways to play over dlna and could not replicate your behavior on my Moto X4 and various media formats.

Hi,
thank you for pdf file. I can replicate similarly, but MMA transmits to next track but playback does not start. Also only for the first time.
We will see what we can do about this,
