Seen on master + m-c build from yesterday on Nexus 4. Can reproduce easily.


1. play a song in music app
2. hit pause
3. press power button to lock screen
4. press power button to power on screen
5. unlock phone
6. hit play

Expected: song continues playing

Actual: the button turns into the pause icon, but the counter doesn't change and there's no audio.

Possibly a Nexus 4 specific issue?
Are you sure this isn't bug 937060, which affects Nexus 4?
For nexus4, Bug 919590 is already present.
Reproduced still on build from today (12/4) on Nexus 4.

Revised STR, this actually requires no sleep/unlock:

1. Play a song
2. hit pause
3. hit play

Expected: song plays

Actual: song plays for 1 second then stops playing. Countdown timer also stops, and button is showing pause symbol.

Logcat: a bunch of these:

E/OMXCodec( 3410): [] Timed out waiting for output buffers: 4/0
Summary: paused song no longer plays after screen lock->unlock → paused song no longer plays

* go to next track, then go back
* go to album view, then select the track again
Yeah, this is definitely a dupe of bug 937060 or maybe bug 919590 then.
Marking this a dependent on 919590. Lets re-test this once that bug is fixed.

Depends on: 919590
In file OmxDecoder.cpp :-
nsresult OmxDecoder::Pause()
  if (!mIsPauseDisabled) {
  if (mVideoPaused || mAudioPaused) {
    return NS_OK;

  if (mVideoSource.get() && mVideoSource->pause() == OK) {
    mVideoPaused = true;

  if (mAudioSource.get() && mAudioSource->pause() == OK) {
    mAudioPaused = true;
  return NS_OK;

Patch submitted for bug 919590 on comment 15 and 16 with above changes fixes the issue. In the above code I have just changed the return type of Pause and returned NC_OK. I have checked this fix on emulator. It works fine.
could we please re-verify if this is fixed in nexus4?
