Slow switching between the tracks

Post by bern » July 13th, 2019, 2:27 pm

I observe slow switching between the tracks on my RPI2 MPD player.
For example when I press next or previous track I wait 4 sec. (in case of 16/44,1kHz flac files) and about 14 sec (in case of 16/384kHz files). It is strange because when I load .cue file (which is treated as playlist) the switching between the tracks is instantaneous.
I use MPD's satellite setup with newest MPD 0.22.11 on RPI2 and samba server machine.
RPI2 is connected to the server via wifi. WIFI signal is strong:

Code: Select all

wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:"XXX"  Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.432 GHz  Access Point: 18:F4:6A:30:AE:50
          Bit Rate:72.2 Mb/s   Sensitivity:0/0
          Retry:off   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=100/100  Signal level=94/100  Noise level=0/100
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
Here is my RPI2 software details.
Maybe my configuration files /etc/etc.conf need adjustment to speed up tracks switching?

Here is copy of mpd.conf on RPI2 side
Here is copy ofmpd.conf on server side.
Please have a look and advise.

BTW is there any way to rescan/update music database from satellite machine? (in my case RPI2)
Currently I can update music database only from the server. It would be very helpful if it could be done also from satellite machine.
