Video Player - Fedora 10 - VLC or Totem
Alright, here's my issue. Totem plays all of my files flawlessley. VLC has really bad audio skips in the beginning of playing anything, and then it improves, but still skips from place to place. However, I have several .iso images of my DVDs that I use to watch the movies in full quality with the menus and everything. VLC has the option for me to put a folder path in the place of the DVD device and it will treat a mounted .iso like a DVD disc. Totem does not. I have adjusted the buffer settings on VLC to try and clear up the audio, and have tried explicitly changing the audio from Default to ALSA, OSS, and all of the individual choices, and it still stutters really bad at the beginning, and then occasionally throughout the files. I'm running Fedora 10, can anybody tell me how to either get Totem to play a mounted .iso like it's a DVD, or how to clear up the sound in VLC?

Found the solution, this is being taken from the user Silpheed2k on Apparently this fixes a lot of sound issues unique to Fedora 10.


open a terminal and run the following command

su -c 'gedit /etc/pulse/'

and replace the line:
load-module module-hal-detect
load-module module-hal-detect tsched=0
(of course save your changes and then move on to the next step)

Next run the following command:

su -c 'yum -y install pavucontrol pavumeter paman padevchooser paprefs alsa-plugins-pulseaudio gstreamer-plugins-pulse pulseaudio pulseaudio-core-libs pulseaudio-esound-compat pulseaudio-libs pulseaudio-libs-glib2 pulseaudio-libs-zeroconf pulseaudio-module-gconf pulseaudio-module-x11 pulseaudio-module-zeroconf pulseaudio-utils xine-lib-pulseaudio xmms-pulse'

next, Run this command

pulseaudio -k

and you're done... test out the audio and see how it works.

This is an excellent response and worked perfectly for me - I suggest anyone else suffering this problem try it as well.

Thanks a bunch!

I have the same audio skipping problem with VLC - it used to be just at the start of songs but recently it does it throughout the whole song. I'm on Ubuntu 10.04, does anyone know what's causing it and a possible solution?
