Podcasts stop playing in the middle when play is started before download completes
Submitted by Jonathan Briggs
Rhythmbox allows me to start playing a podcast while it is still downloading. This is a good thing.
It is not a good thing that the playback stops in the middle. It seems to stop where the file ended at the point playback started. So, if I start playback at 25% downloaded I can listen to 25% of it. Then it stops and I need to resume playback by seeking back and forth until I find the last played position.
This may actually be a GStreamer bug, or a bug in the MP3 component I am using. It is difficult to determine.
