Description Thomas Koehler 2007-09-08 11:31:06 UTC
The OggHandler cutting the end of a audio file.

Comment 1 Tim Starling 2007-09-08 19:36:40 UTC
Cortado cuts off the last ~0.5 seconds of this 2.6 second file, VLC cuts off start.

Comment 3 Piotr Kubowicz 2007-09-23 08:44:32 UTC
Some files are completely unable to hear:

There are _ten of thousands_ of such short files, used on Wiktionarys. If this player does not work, why haven't you turned it off until it gets fixed?
Comment 4 Piotr Kubowicz 2007-09-23 08:52:21 UTC
My question: why functions which contain obvious malfunctions are introduced in Wikimedia projects? Who's testing them? Who is responsible for such decisions?
Comment 5 Rob Church 2007-09-23 13:47:58 UTC
Clearly it's because we're all a bunch of unprofessional morons who shouldn't be let near an MP3 player, much less a bunch of servers?

I'll have you know Tim Starling did an extraordinary amount of testing, including a public beta on the test Wikipedia, and found and fixed quite a few issues and general objections with it. New features will always have some problems, and in this particular case, the main issues relate to probable upstream bugs in the client libraries we're using.

Please do not continue to use our bug tracker as a forum to attack the system administration and development teams.
Comment 6 Siebrand Mazeland 2007-09-23 22:28:37 UTC
Nasty issue in a great feature. Let's focus our efforts to how it can be fixed. Rob, could you add a link to the issue report in the client library? That will hopefully take the heat off the issue here.

You can just use the old syntax if you like, it'll still work.

Patch uploaded in r26204, jar updated in r26224. Patch submitted upstream, review pending.
Comment 9 Piotr Kubowicz 2007-11-10 10:37:40 UTC
I cannot hear online. Opera 9.5 beta/Epiphany/Firefox 2, Java
Comment 10 Piotr Kubowicz 2007-11-23 23:12:59 UTCšin.ogg - only silence; offline works well
Opera 9.21, Java, Windows XP
Comment 11 Tim Starling 2008-03-11 11:52:53 UTC
The remaining issue is not truncation. Files smaller than ~0.5 seconds are not played at all, files larger than that are played in their entirety. 
Comment 12 Tim Starling 2008-03-11 12:18:00 UTC
Fixed in r31776, the bug should be closed when it goes live.
