Firefox intermittently stalls when playing FLAC audio. This only happens in Firefox and no other browser shows this issue. I can play a song and it will stall and sometimes after a period of random time it will continue to play. It may run into another trouble spot before it stalls again. When playing the file if it does have an issue its always that same spot in the song.

Hi, are these 24-bit flac files? Are you inside your local network?

Is any ffmpeg transcoding log generated, or are they direct playing?

I just connected with my WAN address on my LAN with FF 69.0.1 and played multiple flac audio tracks without issue.  Dashboard shows direct playing.

Is this the same issue as before - a few firefox builds ago ? - do the offending flac files have ID3 Tag at the front of the file if opened in a hex editor?

my files are direct playing. It doesn't do it with all flac file just some of them. Some will have and issue and others are fine. This issue where a song could have an issue and another song off the same album will not.
