[Solved] Rhythmbox chained bit-stream Ogg Vorbis

Postby Ghostbird on Sat Dec 08, 2012 7:29 pm

Hi all,

I recently obtained some classical game music, that's encoded as chained bit-stream Ogg Vorbis, to save space. The music has many repeating patterns, and can be significantly compressed this way compared to other formats.
I tried playing the music using my default player Rhythmbox. Alas the player moves on to the next track before the end of the piece. I presume this happens when it should actually restart a repeating pattern (or something like that, I have no real grasp on the Ogg format).

I tried searching the forum for "chained bit-stream" but nothing turned up. I found one thread for 'Vorbis' but it seemed unrelated to my problem. I couldn't search for Ogg as search terms need a five character minimum length.

Is there a way to fix my problem and allow Rhythmbox to play my chained bit-stream ogg vorbis files normally?
Alternatively:
Is there a reliable way to convert a chained bit-stream ogg vorbis to another format?

Thanks in advance,

Ghostbird

EDIT:

I tried using Rhythmbox without any plug-ins. I used Vorbisgain to generate ReplayGain information for the files. Still no success.
Totem plays the files without a hitch though.

I found a workaround for this problem on the #rhythmbox channel at irc.gnome.org.
Enabling cross-fading in Rhythmbox (even when set to 0.0 seconds) makes Rhythmbox use a different audio pipeline. This pipeline does handle chained bit-stream Ogg Vorbis files correctly.
