Angry xmms player playing mp3 too fast


I am a newbie to linux. i just installed a Mandrake 8.1 on my PC with ac97 audio on board. when i play mp3 with xmms player, it plays at nearly twice the normal speed. i even tried using KDE player, that simply hangs. Help!! what has to be done to play mp3z normally.

do all the mp3's play like that?

make sure you have alsa installed and re do the soundcard install if its a driver issue...

when i first installed 8.1 i got really horrible sound... turned out it had soemthing to do with kde sound server because under black box xmms played mp3's well....

Unhappy

I tried using Harddrake it just does not see the sound card. The card is biult on to the mainboard, it uses AC97' codec.
I even found out that mpeg video streams run at nearly 250 frames/sec. The entire sound/video section is screwed up. i installed alsa but xmms still plays at double speed. Altough i can play mp3 using alsa player after adjusting speed to 32%. How do i correct this mess. I generally use KDE or Gnome.

try another mp3 player besides xmms (theres a lot of them)... see if xmms is bad or if mp3's in general dont work on yur box...try to isolate and duplicate the problem
