    I've really been enjoying the DC build 7 rom. There is one thing that has really been bugging the crap out of me.

    My music player will skip during playback, I've tried it with the GB music player as well as MusicMod and it does it with both of them. Its not the mp3s cause they didn't do it yesterday when I was on GimpSource. I've tried the stock kernel, P3's 900 Mhz, and just for the hell of it CorCor67's rMod series 1100 Mhz kernel. None of them have any affect on this.

    Anyone else having this issue or is it just me? I use my phone all the time to listen to music and unfortunately this could be a deal-breaker. I would love to get a suggestion as to how I can fix this.

    Afaik the lowest clock has nothing to do with this as I've been using gimp for months now with 2.2.2 with no issue.

    I had asked (since GB has the issue as well) if woody is using a portion of GB relating to music.

    Answers?

    No parts from GB, someone else had a music issue on an earlier build. I can't remember what it was.... anyway if you do this it may help, because I have no idea why it would do that, the only part of stock that was edited was the ongoing notification color.

    if you have adb installed then connect your phone to your computer open a command prompt/terminal and type

    adb logcat

    it will scroll at first then stop and slowly continue at this point click to play your music app, if should start scrolling. let it go for about 10-15 sec then unplug your device

    copy the whole terminal/command prompt, and gmail it to me at

    It seems to be better, but still does skip occasionally. I've started using PowerAmp b/c there is an option to change the size of the Audio buffer. That helped to cut down on the skipping but not completely eliminate it.

    thanks for checking in about it, really not something I would get from many (any?) other devs out there, especially a month after the fact

    I would love to send a logcat, however when it is plugged into power or my PC it rarely if ever skips.

    Yes it is better, and the funny part is, since I use music beta and stream over WiFi, it does it less than when playing from my sdcard.

    here is a question, do you think it could be the SD card that is causing the skipping? Mine is the original one I got with the phone Dec '09

    That is a pretty good idea, because the problem isn't widespread only the two of you have reported it. So it's not a bad idea, I wish I had an answer, the logcat didn't show any errors or anything on the ROM/code end, so who knows, these things do what they want.. lol ;)

    Videos skip too

    I just noticed that the music is skipping on my phone too. Not sure if it is related but I also noticed that videos I had taken with my phone skip also. They didn't use to skip but they are now. Running build 10. Anybody else have skipping videos?

    after thinking about this a little, i may have an idea what it could be. I think it may be the read ahead on the SD Card right now its at 'read_ahead_kb 4084' so that may cause an issue if its reading to far ahead?? I'm not sure I'm going to cut it in half for the release of build 11, so if build 11 is better on music/videos please report back here in this thread, same thing if its the same or worse, if that is causing the issue it should either climate it or at least reduce it somewhat. But if it stays the same then i'll try removing the read ahead, and if that still doesn't fix it then the read ahead will stay at the current spot. So we will see what happens, maybe since some of the SD Cards are 'old' they can't handle the read ahead and it causes the skipping, because its not something everyone reports only a few, so if that is whats causing it it's only doing it to a few..

    More crazy behavior - last evening, phone in car dock, music became chipmunk fast - a unique perspective to be sure! Never happened before, and did not stop until a reboot... I have driven thousands of miles with mp3 music playing - this is new to me...
    Related issue?

    yes more than likely all the same issue, I'm just thinking some of the phones/sd cards don't like the read ahead value to be that high.... we will see soon enough.. :)
