ffmpeg and mpg123 errors in log, slow update

Post by jerkbag » December 20th, 2013, 7:29 pm

hi all,

wondering if someone could help. I've been using mpd (voyage alix board) for a few years with no problems. Lately the update database has started to go really slooow, and when I look in the log, I have tons of errors like

Code: Select all

Dec 20 18:59 : mpg123: mpg123_getformat() failed: Message: I am done with this track.
Note: Hit end of (available) data during resync.
Dec 20 18:59 : mpg123: mpg123_getformat() failed: Message: I am done with this track.
Dec 20 18:59 : ffmpeg/mp3: Header missing
Dec 20 18:59 : ffmpeg/mp3: Could not find codec parameters (Audio: mp3, 0 channels, s16p)
Dec 20 18:59 : ffmpeg/mp3: Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate
Note: Illegal Audio-MPEG-Header 0x00000000 at offset 737.
Note: Trying to resync...
. . . 
Dec 20 19:06 : ffmpeg/flac: Could not find codec parameters (Audio: flac, 0 channels)
Dec 20 19:06 : ffmpeg/flac: Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate
For the ffmpeg/mp3 error it always says 737. I was hoping the errors might have been related to and older version of mpd and ffmpeg, so I just upgrade those. My system was debain wheezy. The process was change sources.list to sid, apt-get install mpd, chance sources back to wheezy, and apt-get install ffmpeg. I then tried killing and rebuilding the database but still getting these errors.

# See the mpd.conf man page for a more detailed description of each parameter.


# Files and directories #######################################################
#
# This setting controls the top directory which MPD will search to discover the
# available audio files and add them to the daemon's online database. This 
# setting defaults to the XDG directory, otherwise the music directory will be
# be disabled and audio files will only be accepted over ipc socket (using
# file:// protocol) or streaming files over an accepted protocol.
#
music_directory		"/mnt/nfs/Music"
#auto_update "yes"
#
# This setting sets the MPD internal playlist directory. The purpose of this
# directory is storage for playlists created by MPD. The server will use 
# playlist files not created by the server but only if they are in the MPD
# format. This setting defaults to playlist saving being disabled.
#
playlist_directory		"/mnt/nfs/mpd/playlists"
#
# This setting sets the location of the MPD database. This file is used to
# load the database at server start up and store the database while the 
# server is not up. This setting defaults to disabled which will allow
# MPD to accept files over ipc socket (using file:// protocol) or streaming
# files over an accepted protocol.
#
db_file			"/mnt/nfs/mpd/tag_cache"
# 
# These settings are the locations for the daemon log files for the daemon.
# These logs are great for troubleshooting, depending on your log_level
# settings.
#
# The special value "syslog" makes MPD use the local syslog daemon. This
# setting defaults to logging to syslog, otherwise logging is disabled.
#
log_file			"/mnt/nfs/mpd/mpd.log"
#
# This setting sets the location of the file which stores the process ID
# for use of mpd --kill and some init scripts. This setting is disabled by
# default and the pid file will not be stored.
#
pid_file			"/mnt/nfs/mpd/pid"
#
# This setting sets the location of the file which contains information about
# most variables to get MPD back into the same general shape it was in before
# it was brought down. This setting is disabled by default and the server 
# state will be reset on server start up.
#
state_file			"/mnt/nfs/mpd/state"
#
auto_update                 "yes"
###############################################################################


# General music daemon options ################################################
#
# This setting specifies the user that MPD will run as. MPD should never run as
# root and you may use this setting to make MPD change its user ID after
# initialization. This setting is disabled by default and MPD is run as the
# current user.
#
user				"mpd"
#
# This setting sets the address for the daemon to listen on. Careful attention
# should be paid if this is assigned to anything other then the default, any.
# This setting can deny access to control of the daemon.
#
# For network
#bind_to_address		"any"
bind_to_address "127.0.0.1"
bind_to_address "192.168.15.201"

#
# This setting is the TCP port that is desired for the daemon to get assigned
# to.
#
port				"6601"
#
# This setting controls the type of information which is logged. Available 
# setting arguments are "default", "secure" or "verbose". The "verbose" setting
# argument is recommended for troubleshooting, though can quickly stretch
# available resources on limited hardware storage.
#
#log_level			"default"
#
# If you have a problem with your MP3s ending abruptly it is recommended that 
# you set this argument to "no" to attempt to fix the problem. If this solves
# the problem, it is highly recommended to fix the MP3 files with vbrfix
# (available from <http://www.willwap.co.uk/Programs/vbrfix.php>), at which
# point gapless MP3 playback can be enabled.
#
gapless_mp3_playback			"yes"

## Or to send raw PCM stream through PCM:
#	command		"nc example.org 8765"
#	format		"44100:16:2"
#}
#
## An example of a null output (for no audio output):
#
#audio_output {
#	type		"null"
#	name		"My Null Output"

###############################################################################


# Volume control mixer ########################################################
#
# These are the global volume control settings. By default, this setting will
# be detected to the available audio output device, with preference going to 
# hardware mixing. Hardware and software mixers for individual audio_output
# sections cannot yet be mixed.
#
# An example for controlling an ALSA, OSS or Pulseaudio mixer; If this
# setting is used other sound applications will be affected by the volume
# being controlled by MPD.
#
#mixer_type			"hardware"
#
# An example for controlling all mixers through software. This will control
# all controls, even if the mixer is not supported by the device and will not
# affect any other sound producing applications.
#
mixer_type			"software"
#
# This example will not allow MPD to touch the mixer at all and will disable
# all volume controls.
#
#mixer_type			"disabled"
#

# this may have undesired effects. Don't change this if you don't know what you
# are doing.
#
#audio_buffer_size		"2048"
#
# This setting controls the percentage of the buffer which is filled before 
# beginning to play. Increasing this reduces the chance of audio file skipping, 
# at the cost of increased time prior to audio playback.
#
buffer_before_play		"100%"
#
###############################################################################


# Resource Limitations ########################################################
#
# These settings are various limitations to prevent MPD from using too many

You can see at the end of the conf that I tried disabling ffmpeg which I saw in a nother forum, but the mpg123 errors still came, so I removed the disable, as I am not sure the implications of disabling it would be on being able to play my files.

All that said -- my music plays fine. It just takes forever to update.

Any ideas would be appreciated -- thanks!
