Audacity 2.0.5 on Ubuntu 14.4, installed with Ubuntu rather than compiled.
Audacity is hanging over and over as a process an MP3 of a Skype call. For some parts of the call, the Skype connection was breaking up. When Audacity runs through that part of the audio, it often hangs shortly thereafter; I have to kill it. Sometimes, it hangs even if it didn’t run through a noisy section.
Also, sometimes when I run through a noisy section and then I move the cursor back to replay a section, Skype only outputs quiet static, nothing else. (The static does not resemble Skype bad-call sounds; it is a different phenomenon.) The only way to get beyond that is to restart Skype, and then I hear the audio properly.
What is happening here?
