Description Ilya Potapov 2012-04-23 09:01:17 UTC
When i add an Audio-CD from Amarok sources panel to play list, all tracks are marked grey (like disabled or smth), and pressing 'Play' button causes nothing.
If i add tracks from CD to existing play list, playback comes to the end of last 'not-from-CD' track and then stops.
 So i am not able to play Audio-CD in Amarok.
Please notice, that Amarok freezes for a couple of minutes after inserting CD or after starting Amarok having CD inserted already.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Audio-CD
2. Start Amarok
3. Add Audio-CD to playlist
4. Click 'Play' button
Actual Results:  
Amarok freezes for a couple of minutes after start.
All tracks are grey. 'Play' not works

Expected Results:  
Playback starts.

I should say, that i am using CDEmu for now, because .cue sheets support in Amarok is poor and buggy. But, for example, VLC recognizes and plays emulated Audio-CD very well. I will test Amarok with a real CD in the evening and write back the results.

Which exact Amarok version do you use? There was bug 285885 in Amarok 2.5 which is already solved in the development branch though.

I'm sorry i have not specified version. Yes, it is 2.5.0 as in that bug, so i think my bug is duplicate of bug 285885. Could you tell me, what is approximate date of 2.6 release?
