mpd stucks on flac file while updating

Post by invokercd »

Hello. I've a strange issue. When I go to ncmpcpp and press <u> key to update DB, Music Player Daemon (0.16.7) stuck on one of my .flac file (also 100% cpu using at this time).
Can someone help me with this?

With flac --test you can validate your flac file to see if it is damaged.
Also try updating your mpd version.

If it gets stuck it is most likely in the library it uses to read the file meta information.

This is something you can figure out with gdb/st race. But update to a recent and supported MPD first.
