Amarok-flac problems after update


Recommended Posts

After the recent flac/xine security updates amarok will no longer play flac files. In fact, all xine based players(totem, kaffeine, xine-ui) also no longer can play flac files. Audacious is able to play all my flac files however. I have installed the updated fix for the flac/xine packages but the problem remains. Running xine-ui from the command line I get this output when attempting to play any flac file:


Playlist file (/home/patrick/Music/Flac/David Gans - Lazy River Road.flac) is invalid.

AFD changed from -2 to -1

Prior to this update, flac files played fine in all my players. Anyone else having problems??

Well, no. Never lost anything after an up date, but anything can happen. I know xine uses plug ins for the different file formats, maybe the plug in for FLAC was corrupt or was not included in the up date. I use Amarok for all my music which use xine and never had this happened to any of my audio formats in my library.


Anyway if anything I bumped post back to the top to give it another chance to be seen! B)
