no position slider in flac files
« on: 6 Aug '07 - 15:10 »
I have uploaded a flac file "08-Telegraph.flac" .This file and several other flac files do not have a position slider when played.
Is this a problem with the flac files or can it be fix with the flac plugin?

Thanks.

The slider disappears when the currently-playing track is a non-seekable stream. I'm not sure about how this can happen with a FLAC file, but your guess about the plug-in might be right.

Just asking... Is there any way to mark a FLAC file as stream internally?

That happens when the length is not specified in the FLAC file header. The slider will appear once XMPlay reaches the end of the file (it knows the length then).
