Issues with FLAC?

I was trying to play a file that had both AC3 and FLAC audio tracks, as well as subtitles. When playing the FLAC track, the video playback was very glitchy. Some parts played, other parts would freeze the image for maybe 5 seconds, then the scrub bar would flash on the screen and the playback would jump backwards 4 seconds or so (so, looping, but getting a bit farther ahead each loop). This behaviour was not present when I switched to the AC3 audio track.

In the end, I re-encoded the FLAC audio track to AAC and remuxed it into the video, and then it seemed to play correctly.

Hmm, we’ve tested a number of videos with FLAC tracks here and haven’t seen anything like that.

Is there any chance you’d be able to send in a sample file?

Sure, did you want the original file? It’s 8 gigs or so, I can try to put it on Dropbox.

The original file would be fine, unless you’re able to locate a smaller one that has the same problem.

Feel free to PM me the link once it’s been uploaded.


Sure. I’m out of town for the weekend, though, so it’ll be a few days.

Just to follow-up, we think this issue has been fixed in Infuse 1.3.

Feel free to let us know if you see any other problems. :slight_smile:

The issue does indeed seem resolved, at least on my iPhone 4S (haven’t tried the iPad)
