I have a mp4 Video, from that I extract the audio. I use mencoder, mplayer and ffmpeg directly. ffmpeg -i Videos/Spiele/ZBOF4.mp4 -vn -acodec libmp3lame -ab 144k /home/alex/Musik/Spielemusik/bof.mp3 The result is always the same. After copying to Media-player lsusb | grep -i sony Bus 008 Device 006: ID 054c:085c Sony Corp The file looses the suffix mp3 and after playing 2 or 3 times it is not longer playable. The format is not supported. lsblk -f | grep sdc sdc
└─sdc1 vfat WALKMAN 50E2-2700 /media/alex/WALKMAN

First I thought the player stuff is broken. But new Videos and mp3's are propper working. So I make a filesystemcheck too. fsck.vfat /dev/sdc1 fsck.fat 3.0.27 (2014-11-12) /dev/sdc1: 309 files, 79720/220095 clusters Nothing too complain.

I can't find out where the Problem is. Maybe the Video itself relevant information I hope Jessie is the OS.

  • what is "1 mp3"? Can you copy the file after each play and checksum it to see if it's getting corrupted? – user13757 Jan 27 '17 at 13:21
  • Oh, one mp3. That means it is always the same one – user192526 Jan 27 '17 at 13:22
  • So you've converted a number of files but only one demonstrates this problem? What if you force the audio samplerate to 44.1KHz instead of 48.0 KHz? – user13757 Jan 27 '17 at 13:23
  • Thanks @alex. I changed the sampling rate. I will show the next time if it works permanently. – user192526 Jan 27 '17 at 13:57
  • @alex can you make your comment an answer so a can except it? It works permanently. In my case it is the solution. – user192526 Feb 11 '17 at 15:51

As you can see from the log you provided:

Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz

This audio sample rate is higher than the usual 44.1 KHz (as used by the Compact Discs) and some players are fussy and don't operate on those higher rates. Converting with ffmpeg to the lower rate can often fix this.
