Description

I didn't have this issue before but when opening an MP3 file from a samba share it takes a long time to buffer.

Copying the MP3's to local is fast en when opening local MP3's no buffering delay is experienced.

When playing a FLAC file from same share also no buffering delay is experienced.

Also on launcpad this is a mentioned item: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/audacious/+bug/1044923

#3 Updated by Jeroen Steenhuis about 1 month ago

when playing same files mounted via sftp also no buffer delay is experienced

#4 Updated by Jeroen Steenhuis about 1 month ago

when mounting same samba share with mount.cifs also no delay is experienced

#5 Updated by Jeroen Steenhuis about 1 month ago

if playing from mountpoint of Linux Mint, /run/user/1000/gvfs/smb-share:server=server.local,share=audio, the buffer delay occurs again

#6 Updated by Jeroen Steenhuis about 1 month ago

it has something to do with the amount of files in a folder, more files causes longer buffer delays, even when the files are not added to the playlist in audacious

#7 Updated by Jeroen Steenhuis about 1 month ago

When copying an MP3 file to a folder with few other files the delay is indeed gone, when playing the mp3 from the original folder containing many files buffering is slow again.

#8 Updated by Jeroen Steenhuis about 1 month ago

The same problem occurs with flac files when there are many (audio?) files in the same folder as the flac file.

#9 Updated by Jeroen Steenhuis about 1 month ago

But only using the gvfs share

Based on the information you've given, this sounds like a GVFS problem. Let us know if you find a solution. Closing.

#13 Updated by Jeroen Steenhuis about 1 month ago

But what is audacious doing with all the other files in the folder?

It only becomes slow when a lot of files are in the remote folder.

So it is a gvfs problem but obviously audacious is doing something strange and unnecessary jobs.

Audacious itself? Nothing. The GVFS layer? Your guess is as good as mine. Let us know what you find out.

Edit: It's possible that the album art search is slowing things down. You can see if this helps:

I will have a look, meanwhile I found the issue on the gnome bug tracker:
