Some information I found during review:
We assert the "sound has played" needle pretty quick after the playback is done. In some jobs the "recently played" list gets filled, in others not (as I said, maybe because we're to fast with asserting).
E.g. shows "withing the last minute" instead of "one minute ago".
In addition to that it is pretty unclear is a song is currently playing. The only indicator I could make out is this spectrogram (?) right at the bottom but there is no moving progress bar, no time-left-counter, nothing.

Besides that I could not really figure out what the "-l" parameter does which is hardcoded in this test - maybe its behavior changed over time.

check statistic and found that onyl 2 time failed.

So I won't say this is frequently...

It was definitively much worse in the past - the KDE Team did disable a bunch of plugins that seemed to trigger it more frequently

I don't see any issue according to recent re-runs of the test.

reject this for now.
Please open it if it happens again, thanks!

  • Status changed from Rejected to Resolved

Let's track it as "resolved" then when the accepted fix is the KDE team disabled plugins to stabilize behaviour.
