I see the problem with "cache", it will very often read more than needed.
"prefetch" will also read a little more than needed. During a very small time while the meta parser is parsing, the prefetch thread will continue to read (but it will be likely less extra read than "cache").
Also, we have an issue with taglib, it will seek back and forth in an non optimized way. That is why "cache" could be useful here since it caches more than one "tracks".
I see 3 solutions:
- 1/ the "prefetch" plugin could handle more than one "tracks" like "cache" plugin is doing.
- 2/ Add more parameters to the "cache" plugin, like "prefetch", have a way to setup the read_atone, and maybe set it to 0 for our taglib case.
- 3/ Improve taglib
