Problem with m4a

I have a strange problem while reading m4a files:

It doesn't give me any error however it directly skip to the next song.
I also noticed to there was a "boost" in the RAM and SWAP usage which I can cancel only by stopping the daemon.

I'm using moc under Ubuntu 9.04 with the ffmpeg plugin.
Am I the only having this problem?

Thank you

Which version are you using? 'dpkg -l | grep moc'


I'm using:
1:2.5.0~alpha3-3ubuntu2 ncurses based console audio player

Thank you

I have the exact same problem with the same version (moc and ubuntu), although I'll be going to Karmic soon. Would this issue be fixed with the 1:2.5.0~alpha3+svn20080629-2ubuntu1 that is in the karmic repositories, or would I need to compile to get the latest version?

same here: m4a skips, and so does wma
using CrunchBang Linux = Ubuntu 9.04 based
ii moc-ffmpeg-plugin 1:2.5.0~alpha3-3ubuntu2 ncurses based console audio player - ffmpeg plugin

I updated to Karmic Koala and now if I try to play some m4a files moc crash and I have to kill the terminal...

Same here. There was someone on an UbuntuForums thread that suggested it was a Pulse Audio issue. Would it be worth compiling the latest moc to see if that helps?

It's worth to try alpha4 because it has some ffmpeg fixes.

Oh lord, I spent all night compiling alpha4 and I finally got m4a's working (yay!), only to discover that now I can't see mp3's!

EDIT: Actually, it turns out I accidentally compiled it with OSS instead of ALSA, and I can't for the life of me work out how to change it. Looking at the compile code it seems it searches to see if you have alsa installed and checks it if you do? That's the impression I got, at least. This should probably be a different thread though.

Yes, it's autodetected. Loog at ./configure output, something is probably missing. The same problem can be with mp3.

Cheers, turns out I needed to install the development files for alsa. I'm not sure where to start with the mp3 problem though, what is the decoder used for moc? Compiling things is fun.

libid3tag, zlib, libmap (all with -dev packages).

Thank you and congratulations on the best music player ever.

This has possibly been resolved by SVN r2378 which has removed
M4A from the AAC decoder (because the FAAD2 library can't handle
it anyway).
