This doesn’t happen very often.

And in the twenty minutes since it happened, everything seems to have magically fixed itself :confused:

I’ve just given up and started using headphones. I figure a format/reinstall would fix it, but then I’d have to reset a million and six torrents, so fuck that.

I think when I’m looking at a Discourse post with an mp3 link on it, an embedded one with a play button and everything, then the next attempt by mpg123 to address the sound device will fail.

Maybe not. Coincidences can fool us. Anyway it’s pretty easy to close the browser when I need to start another podcast or something. Stupid and weird but easy.
