    HI All,

    My first time here 🙂 Thx in advance for all the ideas and suggestions.

    I have encounter an problem that my player play’s only 1 song from the file type WMA with variable bit rate and then it quits…
    The only solution that i have is to reboot and then i can play 1 song again. With the rest of the media files (like MP3) there is no problem.
    Anyone an idea on how this happens and cause this problem?

    Hardware is the Rasptouch I-Sabre V4 that i use a server.
    Max2play version (full licences): 2.54

    Thx for the help.

    Hi davegozer,

    Can you please post here the Squeezebox server log after you played the first WMA file and tried to start a second one?

    Can you please check what is set in the Squeezebox Server settings under Advanced/File Types for WMA?

    Maybe this discussion in the Slimdevices forum will help you – it’s about a similar case with wmal:

    HI MarioM

    setting file types:

    Windows Media: Native
    WMA Lossless: Native
    WMA Pro Native

    The only option
    that i have is to disable them.

    Tried to understand what they are talking about at the Slimdevices forum, but i’m not really a lunix guy..
