Last week, I noticed that some of my music files would no longer play in Clementine or Rhythmbox (both of which use Gstreamer). I got the error below when I attempted to play the files:
Internal data stream error.
When I checked the affected files, all of which were Oggs, with oggz-validate (part of the package oggz-tools), I saw errors like this:
-00:00:00.002: serialno 1824847231: Packet out of order (previous 00:00:00.564)
-00:00:00.002: serialno 1824847231: Granulepos decreasing within track
Ogginfo (in the package vorbis-tools) reported the error as follows:
Negative or zero granulepos (-104) on Vorbis stream outside of headers. This file was created by a buggy encoder
I knew I had played the affected files successfully before, so it was clear something I had done recently caused the problem. Easytag was the answer.Continue reading “Fix Ogg Files Corrupted By Easytag”
