Noise when running MPlayer under openSuSE 10.3


I just installed openSuSE 10.3 CR1 and MPlayer-1.0rc1try3-1.pm.3.i586 but there is a lot of noise when playing video files. Here is the output from running mplayer from the console:

Does this happen with every file and every codec?

It happens with different mpeg and mp4 files, did not try other formats. I don't get the noise when I run the same files using the xine engine.

FYI

This happens to me too. I just installed openSUSE 10.3 RC1 a few days ago, added the packman repository, installed MPlayer. The sound is not good (that's an understandment).

By default it uses the mp3lib audio codec for MP3. And indeed the sound is very disturbed. Selecting another codec, such as mp3acm, does not have that problem.
Looking on the web it shows that this may be an old problem as can be seen in an Ubuntu forum from 2006, thread is titled: "Mplayer (and mencoder) 1.0 RC1 packaged for edgy".

The strange thing is that this now shows up on openSUSE 10.3. I don't have a openSUSE 10.2 handy right now, but maybe I should revive my previous root filesystem, and try to update MPlayer on that. Notice that packman has the same version MPlayer for 10.2 too.

I have the same problem, but i solved it on Preferences/Codecs & demuxer and selecting FFMpeg/libavcodec for "Audio codec Family"

I was having a similar problem getting a MPEG4 video to play its Mp3 audio. If you are looking for a terminal window solution, I used the following.

Code:
mplayer -ac ffmp3 (file path)
If the ffmp3 codec doesn't work for you type "mplayper -ac help" for a full list of codecs.

Just to let you know, the problem is solved in MPlayer-1.0rc2-1.pm.1

The workarounds were nice, but this is just better :-)
