#134 Sound clips <2 seconds long play twice in Iceweasel


When embedding sound clips in a web page, I've found that mplayerplug-in plays sounds twice if they're less than 2 seconds long. I've included a test case where the original sound plays twice, as does the same sound with silence added up to 1.9 seconds, but the same sound with silence padded up to 2.1 seconds only plays once.

The same test behaves properly on Firefox on a Mac (which plays sounds using QuickTime), so I'm pretty sure the problem is with mplayerplug-in.

I'm using mplayerplug-in 3.40, and my Iceweasel version information is:

    Can you try gecko-mediaplayer and see if it has the same issue?
