Sound keeps dropping out during mp3 playback


R Pi 3 running kodi 18.

Can somebody please help me with a problem that is driving me insane.

Whenever I listen to .mp3 files, I get persistent split second sound drop outs every 30 seconds or so. This doesn’t happen when I play .flac only .mp3

I read that this may be caused by replay gain being applied. I’ve tried turning this off but it doesn’t make any difference. All of my files do have replay gain tags applied.

Any ideas please?

To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. The best way to get this information is for you to upload logs that demonstrate your problem. You can learn more about how to submit a useful support request here.

Depending on the used skin you have to set the settings-level to standard or higher, in summary:

  • enable debug logging at settings->system->logging

  • reboot the OSMC device twice(!)

  • reproduce the issue

  • upload the log set (all configs and logs!) either using the Log Uploader method within the My OSMC menu in the GUI or the ssh method invoking command grab-logs -A

  • publish the provided URL from the log set upload, here

Thanks for your understanding. We hope that we can help you get up and running again shortly.
