I just upgraded to RedHat 7.1 a few days ago.
Twice now, my computer has frozen up solid when I've been listening to an
MP3 under XMMS *and* Netscape has tried to play an MPEG movie with sound.
Rebooting is the only option. The sound card goes into a loop, playing
back the last few seconds of sound over and over again.
Netscape is using the Plugger 3.2 plugin, which is configured to use mtvp
to play movies.
I have a SoundBlaster Live! card. Previously this was never a problem,
especially since the Live is designed to play back multiple streams
I'm not sure where the problem lies, so I chose the kernel, assuming it to
be the Live drivers for the kernel. But, it could also lie with mtvp, with
xmms, or with arts (I'm using KDE 2.1.1).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play an MP3 with XMMS
2. Configure the Plugger plug-in for Netscape to use mtvp for movies
3. Go to a website with an MPEG movie with audio
Actual Results: Netscape starts to play the movie and the computer
Expected Results: It should have played the movie and the MP3
