alsa-lib crack the sound when doing 32->16 bit conversion
Last modified: 2008-02-25 10:16:32 EST
When playing sounds with alsa sink using any gstreamer application sound
conversion is done wrong and result on cracking sound. VLC seems to have the
original GStreamer bug report:
upstream alsa-lib bug:
POssible workaround for gst pipelines is to add this before alsasink:
audio/x-raw-int,width=32,depth=32 ! audioconvert !
Another option is to use:
as my gconfaudiosink (so muine and rb plays ok)
Maybe it would make sense to patch alsa-lib 1.0.14 on fc7 to revert that change
or to upgrade to a fixed version.
Is it fixed in 1.0.15rc3?
If you create a patch for 1.0.14 I can put it into F7 but generally this issue
has to be fixed in upstream...
