Question mplayer dvd sound problem


hi there,

i have beeing using linux for almost a year now, and i really love it. but now ive found 2 problems that i cant resolve, hope you can help me:

ive installed mplayer for music and video playback. everything went ok untill i tried to playback a dvd. i have and audigy 2 sound card and rh9. i didnt install any drivers since rh9 detected my sound card and made it work from the start. the problem is that when playing dvd's on mplayer the sound "jumps", dont know how to explain that it just "bumps" out of the speakers.

off topic: i have another not so important problem, and it is using the ncurses library.

whenever i use one of the ncurses functions like for exemplo getch() after compilation, when i run the app it gets an segmentation fault, for example:

#include <cstdlib>
#include <curses.h>

int main(){

getch();
return 0;
}

quite simple isnt it? wrong. after g++ -lncurses -o test source.cpp

when i run it: ./test

output: segmentation fault.

if anyone can help me i would appreciate it.
thanks.

By "jumps" do you mean "skips" like a faulty CD or "distorts" like setting the volume too high on a crappy amplifier or something else entirely? What sound drivers are you using? OSS or ALSA?

I've had a sort of similar problem. ALSA fixed it. Try installing the alsa drivers from www.alsa-project.org. If you have any problems installing them then I'll help where I can.
