fb2k loses the stream when /playpause
Hi there!

I listen only to stream radio and I'm using AutoHotkey to trigger foobar2000.exe /playpause.

Problem is: lots of times I do /playpause in order to answer a call, etc. and when I do again /playpause it resumes the current stream for like 10 seconds and then jumps to the next station in my playlist.

I think foobar2000 forgets to take on the stream again if playback is paused after like two minutes or more.

I just want to keep playing my stream. How can I approach this issue ?

Pausing a stream is kind of strange.. Foobar reads the stream to buffer until it fills up i guess, then after unpause it plays the buffer but the stream is cut off so a 'not found' error is given or something. It was discussed at some other thread i believe.

For your specific situation i would suggest using "foobar2000.exe /command:mute" instead.

Thank you for your response.

I think is an usability bug because even if a stream technically can not be paused, for the listener the action play/pause should be transparent. The code should evaluate the resume playback function and retake the stream once play is trigged.

command:mute is great, but it makes me create another binding in order to start foobar2000.

Best regards.

I subscribe it.
