Description Josef Bacik 2008-04-18 15:09:08 UTC
Description of problem: Playing any audio from any application backed by xine (amarok, kde, xine-ui) results in skipping every ~5 seconds. I tried changing to ALSA specifically for xine, and that helped before, but now nothing I do makes it play nicely. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xine-lib-126.96.36.199-2.fc9.x86_64 xine-lib-arts-188.8.131.52-2.fc9.x86_64 xine-lib-pulseaudio-184.108.40.206-2.fc9.x86_64 How reproducible: Everytime. Steps to Reproduce: 1.Play music 2.... 3.No profit Actual results: Skipping audio Expected results: No skipping audio Additional info: This happens with FLAC/ogg/whatever. Xmms, rythmbox, stuff that don't use xine work fine.

Fwiw, I got a sample audio file from josef and couldn't reproduce (worked fine here playing with amarok)
Comment 2 Josef Bacik 2008-05-02 19:45:32 UTC
still happening as of the update this morning.
Comment 3 Josef Bacik 2008-05-02 19:46:21 UTC
(josef@localhost)(993/pts/4)(03:47pm:05/02/08)- (%:~)- rpm -q xine-lib-arts xine-lib xine-lib-pulseaudio xine-lib-arts-1.1.12-2.fc9.x86_64 xine-lib-1.1.12-2.fc9.x86_64 xine-lib-pulseaudio-1.1.12-2.fc9.x86_64
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 09:39:08 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 5 Benji Philpott 2008-05-23 13:00:07 UTC
I previously had this problem using any program with the xine engine. It applied to both audio and video. However, when I removed the alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i386 0:1.0.16-4.fc9 rpm the problem went away.
Comment 6 Josef Bacik 2008-05-23 13:31:20 UTC
tried that, still have the same problem.
Comment 7 Benji Philpott 2008-05-23 16:37:31 UTC
Actually, I still have the problem, it would appear. Sorry for the mis-information...
Comment 9 Roberto Malinverni 2008-05-29 20:21:21 UTC
Just installed F9 - I can confirm the same "xine skipping" issue with audio. MPlayer seems to work fine.
Comment 10 Josef Bacik 2008-05-30 12:31:53 UTC
with the newest kernel the problem went away for me.
Comment 11 CS Wagner 2008-06-03 12:41:22 UTC
I've begun to notice a trend... I don't run hald by default and pulseaudio requires it to be running (though it gives a cryptic error instead of saying "Start HalD"). When pulseaudio fails, I get a "permission denied" error for /dev/dsp. So, I chmod ugo+rw /dev/dsp. Then, I realize I need to start hald. Then, I start pulseaudio. Then, xine skips every few seconds. However, if I remember to start hald first, pulseaudio starts automatically and I get no skipping. The only real difference is that I didn't chmod ugo+rw /dev/dsp. So, is it a coincidence or is there some odd relationship between xine and /dev/dsp?
Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2008-09-05 15:20:35 UTC
My guess is that the issues described here are more likely due to hw/audio driver bugs and/or pulseaudio-related issues. Can everyone experiencing this provide details wrt: 1. audio hw/driver in use 2. using pulseaudio or not (default is yes)
Comment 13 Kyle Pablo 2008-10-14 03:40:28 UTC
I have the same problem. When playing mp3s in amarok, sound skips but in rhythmebox sound does not skip.
Comment 14 Kyle Pablo 2008-10-14 03:52:48 UTC
Correction: mp3s in both Amarok and Rhythmbox are skipping. So the problem is not xine. I just uninstalled alsa-plugins-pulseaudio and that did not seem to make a difference. 220.127.116.11-45.fc9.x86_64 amarok-1.4.10-1.fc9.x86_64 xine-lib-1.1.15-1.fc9.x86_64 xine-lib-pulseaudio-1.1.15-1.fc9.x86_64 rhythmbox-0.11.6-2.fc9.x86_64
Comment 15 Rex Dieter 2008-10-14 11:30:10 UTC
What audio hw/drivers are folks using? (My hunch is that it is a kernel/driver issue).
Comment 16 Rex Dieter 2009-01-23 14:04:27 UTC
Ping, awaiting feedback... If I receive none within 30-days, will close this.
Comment 17 Josef Bacik 2009-01-23 14:10:26 UTC
i've not had this problem for a bit. i'll close the bz.
