2 submitting a bug report.
4 Q: I seem unable to play files with accents in them. Why?
5 A: Emacs doesn't know the coding system of your files, and it
6 apparently decodes them the wrong way. Set
7 `default-file-name-coding-system' to the correct encoding of your
8 file names. It might even work to set it to 'undecided and let
9 Emacs guess.
11 Q: Emms skips some songs in the playlist for no apparent reason. When
12 I select them manually, everything works. Why?
13 A: Increase `emms-player-delay' until it works. The problem is that
14 emms is told by Emacs that a player finished, so it starts a new
15 one. But in reality, the player has not yet freed the audio
16 device, so the next player gets an error when trying to play. The
17 best way to fix this is by using ALSA or other sound systems which
18 allow concurrent access.
