No locks found. Doesn't rule out bad parameters though.

Please search the wiki for folder lock. And CREATE a folder lock for the folder where you copy files to.

I have the same problem with snapshot 23227, it used to work just fine. The files is on a NAS i have not had any problems with them before.

Not that this helps anything but it clarifies that the problem is not unique to b4rney.

Edit:

My guess is that niz changes to:

Media_Plugin_Grids.cpp or MediaAttributes_LowLevel.cpp is the cause. I have not had the chance to test it out.

@posde

OK, I'm with you now. You think UpdateMedia is scanning the files before they have completed copying and that this is causing corruption of data. I will remove all audio files (only audio is affected). I will lock my folder and try again to try and rule this out.

As more users are seeing the same thing though, don't you think it might be more of a general bug with the snapshot?

I had a chat with Emiku about this. The changes niz23 did to the media_plugin only affect the people who recently installed a snapshot.

To verify that this indeed is the problem, could you install the version I have:
Code: [Select]
apt-get install --reinstall pluto-std-plugins=2.0.0.44.10072723202

Yep, that's it. Installed your version and everything works.
Thanks posde and Emiku. I'll avoid doing apt-get upgrade for a while.
FYI: I installed the snapshot from 2nd August (23227).

No need to avoid an apt-get upgrade, as long as you remove pluto-std-plugins from your /usr/pluto/deb-cache dir and your /var/cache/apt/archives dir.

Posde,
Did that but I still get this:
Code: [Select]
root@dcerouter:/var/cache/apt/archives# apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
  pluto-std-plugins
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/16.6MB of archives.
After this operation, 0B of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

see if the file still exists in /var/cache/apt/archives. After manually removing the file, apt-get upgrade will tell you there is something, but won't be able to actually do the upgrade. You can easily switch back to the other version

This worked for me, downgrading fixed the problem now all music works.
