         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-multimedia at kde.org
        ReportedBy: stevenking66 at yahoo.co.uk

I am running Dazuko to allow clamav's virus-checking daemon clamd to check files when they are opened, executed or closed. This means that a largish file like an MP3 can take a second or two to open. If I try to play an MP3 under these circumstances, instead of announcing the track and playing the music, noatun displays "Stop" down by Kicker and plays nothing.

Mplayer works fine under the same circumstances, so I suppose the "fault" is in noatun, not Dazuko/clamd. 

If this is not a "fault" but rather a "feature" designed to stop noatun hanging when a file never opens, perhaps a longer timeout would be needed? I don't know how noatun works, so this is speculation.
