Seven Devils has been showing up in one of the latest Beautiful Creatures (Movie) Trailers. The music is an excellent choice for that trailer in my opinion.
Any Video Converter, when converting any video with sound, causes the resulting compressed video to play once with sound and then a second time (in the same video file) without sound. The second playthrough is identical to the first, essentially doubling the video length and file size.
The diagnostic process shows:
If Disable Audio is set to Yes, the bug does not occur. (You get a single playthrough of the video, but no sound.)
Disable Audio set to No should leave audio intact. Video playthrough should occur once per file (barring auto-repeat settings on the player.)
Disable Audio set to Yes works as expected, but Disable Audio No causes the expected video to be followed by a copy of the same video without sound (within a single compressed file.)
I turned off iTunes Match, then turned it back on (got a warning that this would “replace the music library on this device”, I hit “enable”).
Had this problem today when syncing my new iPod Classic. Playlists had grayed out songs that wouldn’t play. Quick Google search turned up a few articles, this is the article that was helpful.
Went to the Apple store today and replaced my iPod Classic. The battery was dying. I regularly rail about how stupid the Apply battery replacement design is (i.e., you can’t replace the battery without taking it in for repair, or voiding the warranty by doing it yourself), but in this case the policy paid off. I’ve had my iPod Classic for at least 7-8 years, and when the battery started to die I went in to the store expecting only that they would replace the battery. But, they didn’t carry the battery anymore, so they instead replaced the entire unit for the cost of the battery replacement.
Bye Be iPod Classic 80GB
Hello iPod Classic 160GB
I still think it’s a stupid policy, but I have to give credit when it is due.
Don’t be surprised if you hear this as the last song.
