Error: code 28

Added by JP Farmer 19 days ago

This may be a little off topic, I'll ask first and seek forgiveness later.

I keep getting the following error playing mp3's that I ripped from vinal with streamripper in a round about way. I suspect that the mp3 files have minor problems with headers or something like that (ie.: not an actual problem with Audacious). I am running Audacious 3.7 because this is running on an older headless Rasperry Pi (Raspian (Debian) 7) and I don't want to mess around updating the OS or building a newer version of Audacious. And, as mentioned, I don't think that it is an Audacious problem anyway. It happens randomly, sometimes a song will play just fine and next time I get the error.

The songs are in a sub-directory and I just play the sub-directory. Ie.: audacious /home/jogl/Music/3_PokerMix.

ERROR [print_mpg123_error]: mpg123 error in file:///home/jogl/Music/3_PokerMix/New%20Order%20-%20Blue%20Monday%20%28Retro%20Dance%29.mp3: Failed to find valid MPEG data within limit on resync. (code 28)

Any ideas about how to fix the problem easily?

Use something like mp3check to fix the files Streamripper creates.
