Description of problem:
I am trying to set up sounds to play in Control Center => System Notifications.
I downloaded some system sounds from and they are in the .ogg
format. When playing any .ogg file from either Kabooble or Noatun, the sound is
VERY choppy. They can both play .wav files just fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Control Center => System Notifications
2. Select any of the events (I chose KDE is Starting Up)
3. Select "Play a sound:" and browse to an .ogg file and click the Play button.
4. The sound will play and be VERY choppy.

Actual Results:  A choppy sound was played.

Expected Results:  A clear sound should have been heard.

Could you please try to reproduce with Fedora Core 3? I suspect this is fixed  
for some time now. Thanks. 

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-10-18 18:06:23 UTC
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.

Closing as CANTFIX.
