[MediaPlayer] unreliably plays audio (output) when files are loaded from a playlist

I have been experiencing various issues with playing music using the MediaPlayer with playlists. Sometimes audio playback does not produce an output when launching the application and after some fiddling around with it can get it to play. When it proceeds to the next song (either naturally or fast forwarding), the audio output disappears again. Sometimes it'll produce a very loud white noise type audio output and eventually start playing the expected audio some time into the song (can last a few to tens of seconds). I have also caused it to crash when trying to fix the audio output issue by adjusting the audio track, fast forwarding, rewinding, etc... See the attached debug report for more details of one such crash.

I'll also add a screencast where the audio indicator should provide some visual evidence of the issue(s) experienced.

Almost certainly fixed by https://github.com/haikuports/haikuports/pull/2758 but I obviously can't test.

I can reproduce this one quite easily, with a given set of MP3 files. I'm not sure what's special about them. Remind me to report back when the new ffmpeg is available for testing.

PulkoMandy reported that his MP3 set plays just fine now. So, closing as fixed.
