CD playback, playlist not updating new media
hi, i'm using Audacious 3.2.1, Debian Wheezy [testing] and XFCE
the issue i have is the playlist isn't updating to show the new CD in the drive, Audacious 2.4.4 does the same thing, i just upgraded today to 3.2.1
it'll just load the previous info, even though it'll play the new cd, i have to close the player and reopen it for the playlist to update.
even if i shift+d [delete playlist] it still won't update and show the correct artist/track info etc
is it keeping the data in a cache or something?
how can i force it to load the new CD's info? shouldn't it just read the cd-text and display that?
any hints or suggestions?
and g'day from Auckland, New Zealand too 8)
Please give steps to reproduce.
open player, put cd in tray and close it, load the cd to the playlist.
the tracks appear in the playlist according to cddb [annoying, another story] play music.
eject cd, playlist clears itself, load new cd, the previous album is loaded, no new info loads.
even playing the new cd the track lengths will only allow the new song to play the previous albums length, eg if track 5 is 2:03 long then the newly loaded cd's track 5 will only play to 2:03 then just stop.
even if i manually clear the playlist this happens, the only thing that seems to work is closing the player then reopening it.
refreshing the playlist doesn't work, deleting it doesn't work, creating a new playlist doesn't work
i've tried dozens of cds, same every time.
i have subscribed to alerts on this thread now, oops.
i just reproduced it identically on another computer [a dell laptop] with the latest version of audacious 3.2.1
can anyone else reproduce this?
This seems to be a libcdio problem; I am looking into a workaround.
ok cool, what am i meant to do with that info though?
edit a config file?
No, patch the source and rebuild or just wait for 3.2.2.
ok cool, thanks for that, i suppose i'll have to wait for 3.2.2 unless you can point me in the right direction for patching it?
i installed 3.2.1 from the repos but i've installed stuff from source in the past [i'm not a linux ninja though]
i'm not getting email updates for any of your responses for some reason.
3.2.2 updated today, this problems still persists.
could i assume the plugins will be updated soon? only the player updated today that i saw.
According to http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/audacious-plugins there should be an update for you.
And your problem is only related to audacious-plugins so don't wonder why it's still not fixed with 3.2.1.
g'day, the plugins updated too and now the problem is fixed! yay! 8)
