Description Tobias Jakobi 2008-05-17 19:33:27 UTC
Hi there,

by default the @ and ! keys on the keyboard are assigned to seek_chapter functions in mplayer (see mplayer -input cmdlist for a complete listing of input functions).

When playing back a standard CDDA with "mplayer cdda://:4" the @ and ! don't work. More specifically I get a lot of errors on the console:
!!! read_filepos differs!!! report this bug...

This happens when playing back the first track and trying to seek to the next track.

According to this thread on the mplayer mailing list CDDA track seeking should work:

Attaching emerge --info output...

Seems like the patch made it into upstream.

It's now in mplayer-1.0_rc2_p27120, and works for me (at least what CDDA playback is concerned).

Resolving bug to UPSTREAM

Closing since ebuild is in portage (keyworded though)
