SOLVED: Music Dropping/Skipping every few seconds

Post by DollyJelly »

Hi,
I have recently had to rebuild a PC and am using a fresh install of Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3. I put back on the latest version of Guayadeque from the PPA, noted the recent improvements to the ratings images and thought bliss, all is good. Alas, not so, The Music (mp3 variable Bitrates) breaks for about 0.25secs repeatedly every 8 to10 seconds or so.

Can anyone throw me a lifeline to solve this? Just to say that the issue appears to be limited to Guayadeque, all other players working as before.

Dan

Not really - never had anything like that.
However, now I'm seeing guayadeque saying 'please wait, loading tracks' for about 2 minutes...
If it didn't have smartplay and great lyrics, I wouldn't bother.

I noticed that I needed to install Gstreamer plugins "bad" - the problem has gone away - whether this was the cause I do not know - but I am a happy bunny again.
