I've seen this, too, with the same backtrace. Don't think it has anything to do with the partition not being mounted. In my case, I also just launched MediaPlayer and it tried to open the previous playlist. At the time, I thought it had something to do with me having placed an incompatible in my home/config/lib folder, since I was testing some stuff.

From the backtrace, looks like the crash involves the BBufferIO class. I wrote this class long ago, but I don't think I've extensively tested it, except for some basic stuff.

I have the same thing when launching MediaPlayer. I think I last played back something on a USB stick, that's not connected ATM. This is hrev35438. I don't know if it helps, but this is additional info from the syslog:

I've tried to reproduce the error, but I just get an error message from MediaPlayer. The error doesn't fit so much, since it should just say they file does not exist, instead that there is no decoder available for it, but I get no crash. Can anybody still reproduce this?

Summary: MediaPlayer crash at startMediaPlayer crash at start when trying to restore playlist but file is gone

comment:8 by Disreali, 11 years ago

I used to experience this a lot when playing CD's or media on a non-boot partition, closing MediaPlayer, un-mounting the drive, and relaunching MediaPlayer at a later time. My testing is that MP attempts to start playing the last file played at the the point MP was closed. I have to open the playlist, which has a single blank entry, signified by a green pointer, and delete the blank entry. MP then work fine after deleting blank playlist, closing and re-launching.

I have not tested MP's behaviour since the massive refactor caused gcc2 builds to not be able to play anything.

Replying to Disreali:

That's been fixed, so you should be able to retest.

Basically I couldn't ever reproduce this. The misfitting error message is also fixed now.

comment:11 by stippi, 11 years ago

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

A wait, this isn't a MediaPlayer bug at all, looking at the stack crawl again. What happened is that BMediaFile creates a BFile, but never checks InitCheck() on the object. If the file is invalid, some buggy decoder, like probably the APE reader in this case, may not check return values from the reading methods and crash. In any case, the issue is definitely fixed, since I implemented checking BFile::InitCheck() and propagating the error in hrev38760.
