Audio in Web Browser Skips


When I listen to audio on the web the audio has little silent gaps in it. Maybe ten gaps per second. The audio that does get played, gets played at twice the normal speed. It sounds like a chipmunk singing through a fan. The problem occurs with both Firefox and Opera. In contrast, I can play MP3s and wave files just fine.

Does anyone know how I might fix this problem? I have beta drivers from ALSA, but I'm not convinced that that is the problem.

What player are you using? If it is realplayer look at this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=506841

How do I tell what player is being used? The audio is playing directly in the browser.

Then you probably don't even have RealPlayer on your system because it is not part of Slackware and my link won't be helpful to you.

Try entering "aboutlugins" in the url window. That will show you what firefox is using for each filetype.

ps okay, my [colon]p turned into a smiley. It should be "about[colon]plugins"

I don't think it's just about plug-ins.
I have Slackware 11.0 and the version of KDE that came with it.
I simply ran through the standard installation for Slackware 11 and when I ran "startx" to start KDE, I heard the sound "stuttering", like you..
I hd launched my "startx" from the first console, so I got back to that console by hitting Alt|Ctrl|1
and there I saw a whole lot of messages such as:

>fifo-audio-out blocked for more than 115 msec
>1024 blocks discarded

I subsequently found that ANY sound launched by KDE had that problem. The I tried playing music with Noatun
and it also had the same problem.
However when I tried playing mp3 files with Amarok, the sound was perfect.
Go figure!

If you want to see the problem fixed I think you have to look in the KDE bugzilla.

What do you mean you have beta drivers from ALSA?

Try a different player. Install mplayer (packages on linuxpackages.net, make sure to check the dependencies) or realplayer from real.com.

I mean that I have the development release drivers, not the official stable ones.
