the chances are its your soudcard - check kernel sources to see for known problems - I had this with an ess1869 sound chip when I tried to play mp3's
if your soundcard is indeed the problem then:
quick fix 1 - disable custom sampling it plays ok at 22100 hz
quick fix 2 - get a sb16 they are better supported

Thanks for the help.

I've tried playing a film and it played fine. The sound and picture were perfect usding kaboodle. But if I just play the MP3's with kaboodle then it won't play properly.

Any ideas why?

Cheers
