[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.
