I've been experiencing the same problem that was reported earlier ("it seems to be going very fast"). I'm on Win32 (both NT4 and Win2k) and played around with the script for a while before figuring out a fix. It looks like a:
fixes all. I also took out the forking-ness of the server, just to simplify the debug process, but I'm sure that's OK.
With the fix in place, the code segment now looks like this:
#what song are we playing
warn( "play song: $song\n");
#open the song, or continue to try another one
open (SONG, $song) || next;
#### NEW CODE ####
#### END NEW CODE ####
my $read_status = 1;
my $print_status = 1;
I think this fix suggests that somewhere in the MP3's being streamed, read()
was encountering what it thought was an EOF, where in fact it was misinterpreting the data. Am I right? (I guessed at binmode, read the cookbook, then understood)
Hope this helps,
