Sometimes when playing music, I get these weird audio glitches. Their though to describe, and I've only been able to just bearably record the very mild versions of them. I've got two recordings here (sorry for the potato quality), happens roughly 2 seconds in on both: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8MrGIr89YLoT3lobXEzdm1JN2c/edit?usp=sharinghttps://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8MrGIr89YLoUnZSQlI1Nzd1TEE/edit?usp=sharing

I don't know if these links work, but let me know if they don't. Both original music files are 192kpbs mp3's, ripped using WMP from the real CD's and transferred using WinAmp to my phone.


What you might be able to hear is as I've said the VERY mild version of the glitch, sometimes it can last for almost a full second. It also happens randomly. Sometimes I get them often, sometimes I can play music for almost a 40mins with no glitches at all. Here's some extra info:

Phone is Nexus 5 running latest 8.0 SlimKat (also Slim kernel)

It's not the files. I can have the glitch, rewind 2 seconds, and the glitch is not there. Even songs that have had tons of glitches in the past, now have none, and suddenly they return. Likewise no errors are experienced playing them on my PC with WinAmp or when using Google Play Music.


It's been annoying me for the better part of a month now, and I'd really want it to go away.

Have same problem on my nexus 5 (5.0.2, also problem was at 4.4.0, 4.4.2 etc).

Tried disable Direct Volume Control - it didn't help, tried change buffer size etc - nothing helps.

I ask this question on vk.com in "nexus 5" group and found out that many users have this problem too. Discussion on russian is here: https://vk.com/nexus_5?w=wall-57569441_443155%2Fall

This stutters appears only in Poweramp, google play music is ok.

One of the situation, when stutters appears often - when i come to work wi-fi area and phone start to connect to wi-fi. But often stutters happens in very different places and situations too.


Please help us, it's very very annoying :)
