    What is the maximum bit rate

    What is the maximum bit rate for an mp3 file to play with OpenMobile .7? I have some music files that have a bit rate of 320kbps and won't play. When I select them they show up at the top of the screen but get no audio. However if i convert them to a lower bit rate, I have no issues.

    Thanks,

    BTW, I really like the potential of this software! Once the auto part of OpenMobile is complete, will there be any side projects for this to be customized for a HTPC?

    I had this issue with a large portion of my mp3's and found that they at some point got fuggered by windows media player's indexing bug. I have since set the directory on my server they are stored in to read only and created an uploads dir so the stupid thing can't do it again.. but basically I found out that they were reporting as starting at a different point than the beginning and had a length in the file header that was wrong.. MOST players that I've come across ignore all of this for the purpose of playback. OMplayer seems to take offense however.. heh

    I'll see if i can find the app i used to clean mine up and see if it helps you out.

    thanks, i'll give it a shot. However I never used windows media player to play my music, so would they still be effected?

    it's less about using it to play, than if it was indexed. though that's just how mine got to that state.. if there are tools out there to fix it(that predate the bug), I'm guessing there are other ways.

    That's right, JustChat mentioned "gpot codec analyzer tool" is a bug report I sent in and i googled that. that's how I found the issue, and googled the error that I got out of that tool to find a tool to fix it. heh

    gspot file analyzer:

    you can send me one of the files and i'll see if I can find a workaround but for the most part we just use windows for mp3 decoding since it works 99% of the time (supports everything except damaged files).

    Here is a screen shot of the mp3 file loaded into GSpot, not exactly sure what i am looking at? It shows that the codec is installed. This file will play with any player i try other then the OMplayer! Am i missing someithing? There is other files that are doing the samething as this one, i only see the player locking up when it is a 320kbts file playing! But not all the 320 kbts files freeze up, just some!

    In the bottom left theres a 1, 2 and 3 under aud. I'm betting if you try them in order you get an error before you hit 3. I don't doubt the codec is installed...i doubt its capable of playing those files. You can also try the m/s version on the right to see if that works.

    CORRECT!!! I did as you said and tried using the buttons at the bottom of the page. As you had predicted I recieved errors. Also tried the MS button and got this error:

    Rendering failed: Following is the error reported by DirectShow.
    0x80040266 [unknown]

    Are these files, currupted? Can the be fixed?
