    This is about mp3blaster:

    Supported audio output drivers: oss sdl esd

    This is about OS:

      Can you run mp3blaster with the -d option?
      By default, it dumps the debug info in ~/.mp3blaster

      Post the (relevant) bits here. Usually you'll see something about 'bad frames' at about the time the skipping occurs. This indicates that the mp3 data is damaged.

      i have a similar (or the same?) problem. i installed mp3blaster today, and if i play my mp3 files, they are played too fast. it skips little chunks of the song.
      when i ran mp3blaster in debug mode it said:

      Found a bogus header (or EOF?) Resetting..
      Found a bogus header (or EOF?) Resetting..

      this goes on several pages.

      the mp3 files are OK, i tried several different ones. any idea what the problem is?

      my OS is openSUSE 10.2 and i have mp3blaster v3.2.3.

      same problem here. many skips of 2-5 seconds

      same debug output.
      it also happens with ogg files.

      kernel 2.6.24 (tickless)
      mp3blaster 3.2.3

      Try to increase number of threads ( using -t option ), from manual page:

          Numbers of threads to use for buffering. Range is 0..500 in increments of 50. 0 threads means no buffering (thus no hickup prevention).

      Or 'on the fly' I think by using '[' and ']' keys...
