I’m having this issue with a Pi 3B+. I installed on a i5-2400, the same issue!
I’ve tried all possible combinations of buffer size and buffer before play without any luck. I switched from the external USB DAC I’m using to internal audio port, same thing.
I tried to update MPD. Not possible.
I’m trying to compile MPD but there are some dependencies I’ve been unable to fix. May be if I spend more time on this I’ll be able to compile it, but I won’t be sure if this new version will work with volumio or if the issue is actually fixed.
I think Volumio people should consider this bug as top priority. At the beginning I thought it was an issue with my hardware, but all my tests showed otherwise. And sadly, I’m not alone.
The funny part is that I bought 1 year of premium subscription and the android app:angry: Why should I have to spend time fixing a software that I paid a subscription for?
