I'm not sure that mpg123 has fixed any bugs recently, from the
state (and age) of the files. The web site doesn't give me
much more hope. (^&
So far, every MP3 file I've thrown at XMMS under the AMD64 has
caused XMMS to crash after (rough guess) about 3 to 5 minutes of
playtime. The mpg123 can play these (30 and 60 minute long) MP3
files to completion. It might be interesting to hear from others
with 64-bit systems.
I haven't really used it heavily with Ogg Vorbis (or other format)
files in a while, so it might be a more general problem if I had
suitable samples to work from.
The number of int-=>ptr conversions I'm seeing in a logfile from
the build is also a bit disturbing, but I'm not sure if any of
those directly relate to what I'm seeing.
