Support - (fb2k) / iOS app: "Playback error: Length of object is unknown"
Last post by perdido34 -
When I try to play audio files from media servers on my home PC, sometimes I get a message, "Playback error: length of object is unknown," followed by a long http link to my PC where the server and files are located. Then no sound will play. The screen shows the filetype incorrectly as m4a.

A few minutes later, there is no issue and the same files play without a problem (FLAC, WAV, mp3, DSD64etc.). I have an iPhone 8+ running iOS 11.3, but I had the same intermittent problem with earlier phones and iOS versions. It doesn't matter what filetype I'm using or which media server I use (Asset uPnP or foobar2000 on my PC).

Any suggestions?

yeah I thought that. I suppose 5000 tiny beads could turn into 25,000.
More like 2 million, or more. I would imagine they would use the lowest possible bitrate for this. It's not like anyone is going to complain about audio quality here  :P
hehe that could very well be true also. I was thinking they'd use >200kbps, hence the ~25,000.

3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: foo_uie_lyrics3

hi everyone, i have a quick question regarding the saving of lyrics to the tag

it seems that the way it is beeing saved by Lyric Show 3 is it concatinates the time for lines that are repeated

so the way the synced lyrics are layed out in foobar with the lyric show 3 plugin is as follows:

Quote
[ti:The Contrarian]
[ar:A Perfect Circle]
[al:Eat the Elephant]
[id:hpsuspck]

[00:30.98]Hello, he lied
[00:35.32]Like velvet this magician's
[00:42.25]Sleight of tongue and hand
[00:46.19]
[00:46.99]Hello, he lied
[00:50.10]Beware, belie his smile
[00:54.11]As warm and calculated
[00:58.78]As heroin

but when actually looking at the tag (with mp3tag for example), it seems the times are joined:

Quote
[ti:The Contrarian]
[ar:A Perfect Circle]
[al:Eat the Elephant]
[id:hpsuspck]

[00:30.98][00:46.99][02:47.02][03:03.03]Hello, he lied
[00:35.32][02:51.27]Like velvet this magician's
[00:42.25][02:58.28]Sleight of tongue and hand
[00:46.19][01:01.74][01:08.66][02:14.50][02:30.00][03:02.03][03:17.16][03:24.39]
[00:50.10][01:54.09][03:06.15]Beware, belie his smile
[00:54.11][03:10.10]As warm and calculated
[00:58.78][03:14.97]As heroin

this actually creates a problem for other players that support lyrics from tags in that instead of presenting them neatly like Lyric Show 3:

Quote
Hello, he lied
Like velvet this magician's
Sleight of tongue and hand

Hello, he lied
Beware, belie his smile
As warm and calculated
As heroin

it looks messed up:

Quote
Hello, he lied
Hello, he lied
Hello, he lied
Hello, he lied
Like velvet this magician's
Like velvet this magician's
Sleight of tongue and hand
Sleight of tongue and hand
Beware, belie his smile
Beware, belie his smile
Beware, belie his smile
As warm and calculated
As warm and calculated
As warm and calculated
As heroin
As heroin

so my question is, is there a way to force Lyric Show 3 to just save it to the tag as it is entered when editting them directly from the panel?

It is available in the usual place at https://sourceforge.net/projects/album-art/files/album-art-xui/AlbumArtDownloaderXUI-1.03.exe/download
Thanks.
I followed the link and downloaded it.
I get a compilation error which I did not get with version 1.02:

General - (fb2k) / Re: Little frezees when tagging playing track
Last post by fabiospark -
OK, I understand that all this is happening when tagging a file but
I can't understand why most of the time FB is able to do that without
stopping the playback and sometimes it can't.

I was asking help or directions on how to troubleshoot this behaviour,
when it happens.

Thanks.
