I'm not talking about long hdd thrashing caused by other programs. I'm talking about leaving the machine with only the music player running.
Without even touching the computer, skips will occur. The hdd activity seems to be a symptom, not a cause. Skipping of this nature _never_ has occured with
any other music player including xmms.
I've been conducting some tests. This info may help:
Player Other activity mp3 Bit Rate Result
JuK none 128k no skip
JuK none 320k skips
Noatun none 320k no skip
Noatun none 128k no skip
JuK open directory in Konq.* 128k skips
Noatun "" "" "" "" 128k skips
xmms "" "" "" "" 320k no skip
*Opening a previously unopened directory with lots of files
So, under a normal load neither Noatun no Juk perform satisfactorily. Perhaps
the sound system was tested on machines with fast hard disks and so this
problem was never noticed?
