#11 Wrong bitrate with mod_mp3-streams

Joe Drew
Networking (5)

Hi there,

I use mpg321 as provided by the RedHat 7.2
installation and also recompiled the newest version.

When playing streams from a mod_mp3-server they are
played a lot too fast, though I can't say if it's
double or even faster.

mpg123 plays them correctly.

    Hi, thanks for the report.

    Could you do two things for me: First, test this out with
    version 0.2.10, and second, give me the URL to the site
    you're using if there's still a problem? Networking support
    was enhanced recently, and I'm not sure what version you
    tested against.

    Hi there,

    I used version 0.2.3 then. 0.2.10 does handle it a lot
    better. It's now mainly played at the correct speed,
    although it still has a small faster hickup every few
    seconds (between 1 and ~15).

    Sadly I can not give you the URL, as it's on an internal
    LAN, but it's streamed by mod_mp3 0.35 on Apache 1.3.23
    on RedHat 7.2 with a 2.4.18-pre8-ac3 if that helps :-)

    Thanks for the good work!

    The hiccups are definitely because of the lack of buffering
    in mpg321, and are going to be fixed when I get around to it
    for 0.3.0. 0.2.10 fixed these issues, so I'm going to close

    Thanks for the report!
