General :: Osx - Mac OS X : Delay/timeshift Audio Input By ~10 Seconds?

Oct 11, 2010

I would like to watch a baseball game on TV, but listen to the radio broadcast. The TV is about 10 seconds behind the radio, though.Does anyone know a way to delay the input from my radio by 10 seconds and output it again to the speakers? I can do this on Mac OS X or Linux (or even Windows). I have Audio Hijack Pro, but there is no such effect.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Login Delay - Receive 30 To 40 Seconds Lag

Sep 15, 2010

When I log into my ubuntu 10.04 after booting my computer, I receive a 30-40 second lag before I can actually log in. During this lag, I can move the cursor and the login background is shown, but the computer seems to be doing nothing. It is as if there is a sleep command before I even log in. I am using a Sager 2096 computer but I got this computer for free and it did not come with the specs. I had installed a 64-bit version of Ubuntu because this computer has a 64-bit architecture. However, whenever I install software, it always has to install the x86 version because the x64 is "not supported." Perhaps I have a mix of 32 and 64 bit programs and that is what is screwing it up?

Ubuntu :: Logout Delay - Countdown: Will Be Logged Out Or Shutdown In 60 Seconds

May 23, 2010

When I click logout or shut down I get a countdown saying I will be logged out or shut down in 60 seconds, then it counts down. I can click the "shut down now" button, but I find this behavior incredibly irritating. When I click logout I would like to logout NOW.

Programming :: Java Needs To Quit If No Keyboard Input For Several Seconds

Mar 29, 2011

I've got a program that takes keyboard input with BufferedReader and readline(), but readline() is blocking so I can't increment any sort of counter to quit the application after a period of inactivity, because the program is just waiting for an input from readline(). Do I need to create multiple threads, where one thread counts down an inactivity timer, or is there some method of using non-blocking keyboard inputs?

Ubuntu :: Flash - 2 Second Delay In Audio

Jan 1, 2011

Using 64bit 10.10, when I click any of the controls that manipulate sound, such as pause, play, or changing volume, there is a 2 second delay before it takes effects, some examples:

- If I hit Play, then the video will begin to play but I hear no audio for 2 seconds, then the sound will begin in sync.
- If I adjust the volume it takes 2 seconds for it to actually change.
- If I hit pause it will immediately pause the video portion, but the sound continues for an additional 2 seconds before stopping.

I have seen numerous people on Google with my problem by googling "flash delay ubuntu". I do not believe this is related to pulseaudio, etc. that I know of, but seems to only occur using Flash as far as I am aware.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Long Delay After Playing Any Audio ?

Dec 25, 2010

I'm having a problem where almost every audio player creates a 2-3 second delay after playing any audio.

I'm working on some text-to-speech using espeak and festival. Festival would provide much better speech quality, but it created a 2-3 second delay after any speech before the application exited, which prevents using it. When I started investigating the issue, it turned out that many other programs display the same behavior.

For example, if I play a 1-second WAV of silence using "play", it displays "Done" very soon and then waits for 2-3 seconds before exiting. mplayer does the same. mpg123 does the same. mpg321 does the same. ogg123 does the same.

When playing multiple files mpg123 and ogg123 do not generate the pause between the files, but mplayer does. I'm wondering can there be a bug that causes programs to hang when closing the audio device?

That's so many programs it must be some kind of problem in the system, not the individual programs. However not every program displays this behavior; espeak exits immediately after the speech has ended. (Might it for instance exit without closing the audio device properly?)

I haven't noticed anything similar before I upgraded to 10.10. I'm running XUbuntu on a Thinkpad T60. The laptop has an Intel HD Audio with AD1981HD codec [url].

Ubuntu :: Applications Including Flash, Znes, Have A Audio Delay?

Jul 12, 2010

Most applications including flash, znes, have a audio delay about 3 seconds I'm not very experienced with Ubuntu so try not to talk over my head, I'm running on the latest version available from the site desktop version and my computer setup is as follows.

Dell Dimension 3000
Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) 2.53 GHz
80 Gb Harddrive with at least 20gb free

I don't really know where else to find information about this system, so if you need additional information you will need to direct me how to find it.

Debian Multimedia :: Audacious / Audio Freezes For A Few Seconds

Mar 28, 2015

I have a very fresh and basic install of the weekly jessie build (this week). I've installed nvidia drivers, some non-free plugins, virtualbox, basic system tools, etc. The issue is while playing in audacious, the song will freeze for about 5 seconds. It's always around 5 seconds. Sometimes it's once or twice per song, sometimes I'll play 10 songs without it happening. BTW, all music is on a separate hard drive on an NTFS partition.

In audacious, I'm using the Winamp skin. I noticed when trying to play for the first time, it wouldn't play unless I changed the setting in audacious to use ALSA. That was the only way I could go to Settings and select my SPDIF digital output. But then doing that, other sounds no longer worked (in iceweasel). So I downloaded pavu, was able to select my onboard digital stereo output, set audacious back to pulse audio, and everything now works. Only issue is audacious is freezing every now and then... Is there a driver or module that I need to check for? Is there a way to get everything to use ALSA?

I once tried AV Linux for the low latency kernel but since it was based on Wheezy and I wasn't familiar with repos, everything was extremely outdated, so I migrated away. Should I need an LL kernel for 320kbps audio playback? I haven't sat and watched a full mkv yet, some of those have 1.5mpbs audio.

Ubuntu Installation :: Post-GRUB 2 Delay - Troubleshoot This And Determine What Is Causing The Delay

May 11, 2011

After GRUB 2 comes up (I'm running Ubuntu 10.10) and I choose the OS to boot, there is about a 5 second delay where nothing appears to happen after I make the selection -- no disk activity. It happens consistently every time I boot. Again, this is after I choose the OS to boot, so it shouldn't have anything to do with the standard delay to allow me to choose the appropriate OS.Is there a good way to troubleshoot this and determine what is causing the delay?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Switch From Audio Input From Mic To Line On 9.10?

Feb 28, 2010

I wanted to take an audio feed from a stereo amplifier into my HP Pavilion DV6 laptop, in order to digitally record some old vinyl.

In the Sound Preferences tab, I seemed to be able to record easily from the internal mic, but there seemed to be no easy way to switch the preferences to enable recording from the Line In socket on the laptop.

We tried muting the mic, this only caused the system to record nothing. We also tried all the various available options in "the Hardware Profiles" tab, "Settings for the available device", but no the laptop seemed to be getting no "line in" input with whatever profile we tried.

On Mac, it was as simple as switching the input sound preferences from "internal mic" to "line in".

Ubuntu :: Doesn't Allow To Specify The Input/output Audio Devices?

Jul 28, 2011

For some reason on any application that uses sound, but doesn't allow me to specify the input/output audio devices I don't get anything. I want all audio to go to my USB Headset, and not the onboard soundcard. To start off with, here's alsamixer: Here's a screenshot from Mumble (voice chat) that shows that I've set the USB headset device in there, and it works 100% fine on Mumble.


As you can see from the alsa-base.conf above I've tried specifying snd_usb_audio as the default device, but it's not working.

Ubuntu :: Audio Input Not Working With Network Connection

Nov 21, 2010

I am using Ubuntu (Studio) 10.04 (kernel name reads "2.6.32-25-preempt"), and I am having a problem with applications that send audio over network connections (skype, google voice, etc.)- the audio that comes out on the other line sounds like small periodic blips. I figure this must be some kind of clocking mismatch or something?

- I can record audio just fine using audacity or other recording interfaces.
- All forms of audio output, including skype and google voice, work just fine (I can hear the person on the other line, but they can't hear me).

How to adjust whatever settings I need to make this work?

Here is my soundcard from lshw:

And my network interface:

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Redirect Input To Output Pulse Audio?

Aug 2, 2011

I have a TV card connected to my Dish box, and I would like to use it on my computer. The tv card works fine, and the audio is connected to my line in. The audio card receives the audio signal, and I can set the volume and record it without any problem, but I can't get it to redirect to an output in order to hear the sound. I have been battling with this issue since a kernel update back when 11.2 was about to come out. Back then, the alsa mixer had an option called audio loop-back, which did the trick. Since I know I ca record the audio and play it back without any problem, is there an application that can do this automatically and simultaneously?

Ubuntu :: Audio Input Device Setting Always Reverts To Default

Software :: Cant Convert Audio Files Using Flac With Standard Input?

Jun 28, 2011

I cant convert audio files using flac with standard input. I tried the commands such as:

mpg321 -b 10000 -s -r 44100 -w - file.mp3 | flac - -o file.flac
ogg123 -d wav -f - file.ogg | flac - -o file.flac


All such conversions doesnt produce any *.flac file. It seems flac doesnt accept minus sign for the standard input although flac manual allows to use it.

So my question is how I can use the standard input in order to decode audio data with flac?

Debian Hardware :: Audio Went Out - Speakers Physically Operational But With No Output Or Input

Sep 7, 2015

I'm a new user of Linux and just recently installed Debian 8 on my computer, an Emachines W3118. My problem is that the audio went out a couple of days ago and I don't know WHY it went out, no audio, and HOW to get it back on. I tried several command line methods that didn't work, probably because they didn't completely relate to the problem with me being a Linux beginner and all. When I manually turn the knob on the speaker up, I can hear noise to where the speakers sound like they're physically operational, but with no output or input.
