Tagged audio files occasionally pause upon completion

  • I initially posted this under the "How do I" forum, but now that I can reproduce the bug it's probably better suited here.

    Problem Description

    In Chrome (latest version), when a looped music file is playing, other non-looping, tagged audio files occasionally pause upon finishing, rather than fully stopping like they should.

    Description of Capx

    The file plays a looped music audio file on start-up. Then, every tick, it checks if a tag is not being used, and then attempts to play a sound file with that particular tag.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Run in Chrome.
    • Hear beeping over piano music.
    • After a few seconds (can be anywhere from 1 to 30), the beeping stops.

    Observed Result

    The tagged audio sound file stops after a few seconds. Checking the audio debug menu at this point shows that the audio has paused at its last millisecond, and has not fully stopped; the tag has not been freed.

    Expected Result

    The tag ought to free up every time the sound file finishes, and as such the beeps ought to keep playing indefinitely.

    Affected Browsers

    • Chrome: (YES)
    • FireFox: (NO)
    • Internet Explorer: (?)

    Operating System and Service Pack

    Windows 8.1.

  • I can't reproduce, it seems to keep playing indefinitely just fine here in Chrome. Perhaps try it in Chrome Canary in case it's a Chrome bug that has already been fixed?

  • I've been having something like that happen recently too.

    I have SFX say they are still playing but never release (see screenshot). "Repulse" is stuck (tagged) and both "land" and "boostcharge" are stuck even though they are not tagged.
