Editing file info on a flac file triggers restart of the currently playing mp3 file

Currently, as of Winamp v5.541 I have the following issue ...
  1. Enqueue in the Playlist both an mp3 and a flac file
    It could be multiple mp3s and/or flacs too … it does not matter.
  2. Begin playing any mp3 file.
  3. Now go and edit the file info for the first flac file in the Playlist
    (i.e. the flac file that comes earliest in the track order).
    The mp3 being played can be above or below the first flac file in the Playlist.
  4. Save the changes by clicking the “OK” button on the “File Info” window.
This will trigger the restart of the mp3 file being played
(just as if the Play button had been clicked mid-song).

Expected Behavior
  • The changes to the flac file are saved, and the “File Info” window closes.
  • The mp3 continues playing without interruption/restarting.
Note that if another flac file is playing at the time the first flac file is edited
that a restart of the playing file will NOT occur. The restart only happens to mp3 files.

#1 - Can anyone else replicate this problem?
#2 - Is anyone aware of a workaround/solution?

Sorry JP. I meant to try this before and I forgot.

But I just tried it and I could not reproduce the problem. everything works great and it does not restart the MP3 when I edit a flac file.

Hi jph6t

It'll be one of your many 3rd-party plugins to blame.

Re: Editing file info on a flac file triggers restart of the currently playing mp3 fi

Thanks for trying Juanus & DJ Egg.

I've been playing with things more here (trying to isolate a plugin responsible for the funky behavior) and am still getting the issue even with all my plugins removed.

But in testing further, I noticed my steps to recreate the problem were a little off.
(Which could be the reason you were not able to reproduce on your end).
  1. Enqueue in the Playlist both an mp3 and a flac file
    It could be multiple mp3s and/or flacs too … it does not matter.
  2. Begin playing any mp3 file in the Playlist
  3. Now play any flac file in the Playlist
  4. Now re-play the previously played mp3 file again (from step 3)
  5. Now go and edit the file info for the previously played flac file (from step 4)
    The mp3 being played can be above or below the first flac file in the Playlist.
  6. Save the changes by clicking the “OK” button on the “File Info” window.
This will trigger the restart of the mp3 file being played.

Any luck replicating this issue with these revised steps?

There you go.
The revised steps did it for me. I was able to reproduce the issue.

Egg?
