Can you provide me with a link to an .mpc song?
Comment 2 Enrico Morelli 2004-02-02 01:23:38 UTC
You can found an .mpc song at
Comment 3 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-02 01:32:38 UTC
that seems to be an unsupported format for xmms-musepack-0.94.  I get this message box when I try to play it with xmms-musepack-0.94-r1:

"Superfrae-size!=1: not supported anymore.  Please decode with command-line tool!"

Does it work for you?
Comment 4 Enrico Morelli 2004-02-02 02:10:39 UTC
I tried to use musepack to play mpc song, but I have the problem
describe in the bug.
In another system I have your error, but after this, xmms starts to open a lot of windows.
Comment 5 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-02 02:19:17 UTC
hmm... that's not happening with me... What are the windows saying?  Can you trigger this bug then goto a shell (ctr-shift-f1 for instance) and run gdb on the process... ex:

# ps x | grep xmms
12347 vc/1     S      0:00 xmms
12348 vc/1     S      0:00 xmms
12349 vc/1     S      0:00 xmms
12350 vc/1     S      0:00 xmms
12354 pts/2    S      0:00 grep xmms

# gdb attatch 12347
loading symbols and stuff
(gdb) bt
<backtrace I'd like to see>

Also, can you try less severte CFLAGS... like '-O2 -pipe'
Comment 6 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-02 02:36:11 UTC
actually... you can hold off on the gdb testing... I'm gonna test out a newer version of this package and hopefully that will solve your problem.
Comment 7 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-03 22:46:02 UTC
can you please try 0.98.  I committed it to cvs just now, and it should show up on the rsync mirrors in the next day or so...

Comment 8 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-08 02:31:45 UTC
Enrico, could you please test this for me?
Comment 9 Enrico Morelli 2004-02-09 01:55:25 UTC
I tried the 0.98 version that seems to resolve the random windows open
problem. But I have the same message that you have using 0.94 version:
Superframe-size != -1: not supported any more.
Please decode with command line tool!
Comment 10 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-09 02:46:10 UTC
Ok.  I think the 'Superframe-size != -1: not supported any more. Please decode with command line tool!' message is a problem upstream... maybe the authors will fix it later, but this project seems so disorganized...

I'm marking this bug closed as the problem is corrected with the new version.
Comment 11 Kerin Millar 2004-02-15 16:44:26 UTC
I think this message: 'Superframe-size != -1: not supported any more' indicates that the file was created with an old (i.e < = 1.x) version of mppenc. Hence, it advises you to use mppdec to decode the file to WAV format, which should work. I've just entered an ebuild request for mppenc, and I'll probably submit mppdec/replaygain ones tomorrow.
