Can't seek in some mp3 files

Added by Cristian Rigamonti over 7 years ago

Hi, I'm trying to understand why audacious (3.2.1) can't seek in some mp3 files, like this one:
http://www.radio.rai.it/podcast/A42410793.mp3 (or any of other podcasts at http://www.radio3.rai.it/dl/radio3/Page-ddd8f97e-d1a5-4a0f-94a0-9db44bd29c68.html )

I suspect the files are somehow mangled by design in order to avoid seeking to skip advertisements at the beginning of the file (though many podcasts don't have any), but maybe it's a bug in audacious instead?

Seeking works OK with other players, like mplayer or vlc.

Thanks!
