Description of problem:
Continuous music or video playback (totem or rhythmbox) is being cancelled with error window containing following message:
pa_stream_writable_size() failed: Connection terminated
It happened to me on i386 with RHEL 6 during mp4 (video) playback by using fluendo-codec pack. I first contacted Fluendo group, and their answer after a short investigation was, that the issue is most probably in pulse audio.
!!! The same issue was reported on the machine during playback of mp3 without fluendo codec pack.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Watch longer playback of mp4 file on RHEL 6 (totem)
1. Listen to multiple mp3 in rhythmbox or totem
Cancelled playback with mentioned message
Error occured after 20 minutes of mp4 playback (on i386)
Error occured after listening multiple mp3 files on (x86_64)
