Next song does not play automatically
I have gotten a few messages saying that the next song in the playlist does not play automatically after the previous song has ended in the web app. The problem is that so far I have not been able to replicate the issue, which makes fixing it difficult.
All these messages came via email, so hence I created this discussion. Please let me know if you are affected by this issue as well.
So far the things in common are:
- Irregardless of which song is playing
I would like to know which browser and operating system you are using, and additionally whether you are using add-ons, and if so which. Screenshots are welcome too. I have a couple hypotheses of why this is happening, and I would like to test which is correct:
- Chrome suspends tabs if the computer is low on memory. It could be that Astiga is suspended as well.
- Some add-on blocks background requests for audio to play (as a lot of ad banners have abused that to play annoying audio ads), and only works if you click the song, as it is user-initiated.
- There is some race condition, where the song loads, and is then paused again.
