I'm using 1.9dev4
ext-mp3-input-cmd = mpg123 --stereo -r %s -b 0 -q -s -k %o %f
I tried hacking out the error exit in audioio-mp3.cpp but got a core dump on
the bad files, so obviously that's there for a reason :-)
This affects a relatively small percentage of the files, but I'd like to
find a solution. I don't see anything unusual in the id3 tag. Winamp reads
it just fine & plays the file w/ no errors.
Thanks for any help
