    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.. :)
