An odd thing happens when I'm watching movies in xine, that being, the sound playback quality is... oscillating.
I can hear sound just fine, and, through other applications (e.g. Xmms) sound does not exhibit the same symptoms. Also, xine does not do this for all movies. I believe it has something to do with the AC3 sound codec. I have this codec installed, or at least, I think I do.
Here is a directory listing of my codecs:

What happens is, the sound has a rhythmic fluxuation, almost as though the sound itself is vibrating.
I haven't found a solution to this in the several months that I've endured it. I'm hoping someone else has an idea.
