I have a single flac that gives me an error in foobar at the 20 second mark.

ERROR (foo_flac) : FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_SEARCH_FOR_METADATA
ERROR (foo_flac) : FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_SEARCH_FOR_METADATA
ERROR (foo_flac) : FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_READ_METADATA
ERROR (foo_flac) : FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_SEARCH_FOR_METADATA
ERROR (foo_flac) : FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_READ_METADATA
ERROR (foo_flac) : FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_SEARCH_FOR_METADATA

It stops playing at that point. But if I skip to say, 22 seconds, it plays the whole way through just fine. Why does foobar (and all other players) have this problem, and is there any way to fix the flac without reripping?

This sounds like a problem with flac itself, then.

Topic moved to the 'lossless codecs' forum.

Posible fix: Decode to wave, encode back to FLAC.

Gave it a shot... only decodes to the 20 second spot. Rerip it is. I just thought it was an interesting error since it could be played past the point of error if skipped.

what error does the winamp plugin give? what does 'flac -t' on the file give?

also, if you can host the file somewhere I can take a look.

I have the same problem. I got some torrents of bootlegs and when I go to decode them to .wav, they stop at a given point. It says "FLAC_STREAM_DECODER_UNPARSEABLE_STREAM". I also cannot play the downloaded flac because it stops playing at the same point. Any suggestions?



Update: I just reinstalled foobar and all is well. Crazy, huh?

want to recreate the error? just open up a track, change a few bytes in an editor or perhaps notepad for that matter. Now try playing the file and the stream colapses at that point giving you that error message. Seeking past the break works like it would in an mpeg stream as it jumps past the break. Put simply the files are corrupt
