No crash report recorded

Expected behaviour:
Continuous forward play

Current behaviour:
Occasionally skips back about 30 seconds and continues

First occurred: (e.g. about x days/weeks ago)
2-3 weeks ago

Steps to reproduce:
No idea - it just happens

Environment: (Settings you have changed (e.g. Auto Download). “Unusual” devices you use (e.g. Bluetooth headphones). Did you select another media player?) Jabra 75t earbuds

There was one bug report of this in 2021, but no comments and just closed 3 months later

Do you mean while playing or on resuming playback?
If it is the latter it’s expected, see automatic rewind

Sorry for the late response – it happens during normal play – I’ll be listening and suddenly it’s replaying the same few seconds again – it might be a less than thirty seconds.
It might happen once every hour or so of listening.

Are your streaming or downloading? If the former perhaps the Automatic Rewind is kicking in when there is a momentary loss of connection?

Could be - I’m streaming, in fact. But I don’t hear any disconnection.

Should it be able to distinguish between that sort of break and a deliberate pause? (Never noticed the behavior in the [late] Google Podcasts)

I’ll try downloading, to see if it persists

PS. Just noticed the following from the docs:

|Time since last playback |Rewind duration|
|More than 1 day |20 seconds|
|More than 1 hour |10 seconds|
|More than 1 minute |3 seconds|

The interruption would have to be mighty long for me to notice…

I have the same issue - did you find a way to fix it?

Try downloading instead of streaming. Might be caused by the podcast server cutting the audio files on the fly
