XMMS problem...


Opensourcerers,

I am using Suse 9.0 and tried playing some mp3's on my CD-ROM using XMMS... while playing I suddenly heard that the music played a little bit faster (as if the pitch was adjusted) then it goes back to normal again... at first I tought that I was on the CD-ROM drive but I also encountered the same problem with the mp3's in my hard drive... I would like to ask is this a bug? or I just need to tweak something in my Suse... by the way I've encountered this error on two machince that is running Suse...

thanx...

I had the same problem too. Do you use arts? Then you can increase the buffer-size (from kcontrol). Hope it helps.

If your looking for xmms, just go to:
http://sourceforge.net
and search there for XMMS it should be the first hit, maybe there's a plugin that allows you to change what you want.

Its nothing but i hope it helped

If you are using KDE then you are probably using aRTs. It is a sound-system that makes it possible for multiple programs to make sound at the same time.

Under the KDE Control Center go to Sound & Multimedia -> Sound System (not at my Linux box at the moment so I can't remember the names exactly). There should be a slider that adjusts the buffer-size. If you haven't arts, you can download it from www.arts-project.org.

Also, remember to download (and activate) the arts-plugin for XMMS, so it directs the sound output to arts.

I don't know if it has anything to do with it, but you could try to enable dma on your harddrive (so it doesn't load the cpu): hdparm /etc/hda -d1
