Hi,

I had to update ELAN to the FX versions for them to work on macOS (10.14.5). I have had the following issue in both 5.5-FX and 5.6-FX, in transcription mode.

I have two files (one mp4 and one WAV) linked to a transcription file. When I play back (select) a section in transcription mode, with the sound from the mp4 muted, the first time it plays back the sound of the correct section (e.g. 00.00 to 01.000), but the second time, it plays back the immediately following audio (e.g. 01.00 – 02.000), and so on every 1+nth time (i.e. 01.000-02.000). This also happens when loop mode is activated. This does not happen when the WAV file is muted, so that only the sound from the mp4 file is used.

I have a media offset of +09.090, but the error described above is significantly shorter, so this does not seem to be tho source of the problem.

Hi,
While trying to reproduce the problem I’m not quite sure if I correctly understand the situation. The segments you play, do they correspond to single annotations (i.e. the interval of one cell in the transcription table)? Or are these manually selected segments within the longer interval of a single annotation (e.g. you selected 00.00 to 01.000 in the first annotation which spans e.g. the interval 00.00 to 06.000)?

Also, is there a specific reason why you use the JavaFX Player? Do you have the same problem if you switch to the AV Foundation player (Edit Preferences->Platform/OS, then under Media Framework Java – AV Foundation Framework)?

Hi and thank you for the reply,

The first scenario is a correct description.

I think the reason for the use of JavaFX Player is related to the problem I was trying to solve before the 5.5 FX version regarding video playback, but I am not totally sure. That seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks!

I can also add, if you still want to replicate the problem, that other files did not show the same problem. In the other files, however, the wav file was in Player 1 and the mp4 file was in player 2, whereas for the “problem file” it was the other way around. The video was still kind of glitchy, but that seem to have been fixed now with the change to AV Foundation player.
