Hmmmmm…I have an issue that I think I know what it is, but not sure how to fix it. When I say “Hey Mycroft, play Pandora”, Pandora starts playing, but at super slow speed. The news plays well, but it uses a different playback method. The voice works well, but not with long utterances. The biggest thing is Pandora. I use it often and would love to have it fixed.
I agree. Mine stops after a few songs. @steve.penrod - when will this be fixed?
From memory you have a few devices running Mycroft is that right? Is the slow playback occurring across all devices or just one?
It sounds like this is a different issue to the playback stopping after a few songs. Last time it happened, I believe there was an issue with the pianobar package that we use, but I will take a look and see what we can find.
This one is on a fresh picroft.
I found this old pianobar issue that describes a similar issue.
The first (easiest) thing I’d try is reducing the audio quality. You can do this by editing your pianobar config which should be located at:
and add/edit the following line
audio_quality = low
Second, for at least some people it was an issue with libao. The fix there was to edit:
If neither of those work I’d also be interested to see what your CPU load and memory usage look like at rest vs when Pandora is playing. I’m assuming this is a Raspberry Pi 3?
Yes, it’s a pi 3, I will try your suggestions when I get a chance. Thanks for your research.
