OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Sound Stuttering In Movie Playback...
Dec 23, 2009
I have some videos on my harddrive. In most of them the sound just stutters for a short while and then they work fine. But others the stuttering seems to go on. I must admit I didn't have the guts to check the whole videos...Its kind of torture to watch a full length music video with stuttering sound... Man...I'm asking so many questions here I'm starting to get ashamed of myself
Yesterday I fresh installed Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit LTS on my Toshiba Laptop. This is my second time with Ubuntu so bear with me. I got everything working even the webcam but it won't play dvd movies. When I go to the DVD player icon and try to open it...its won't because it doesn't recognize the dvd format.I have searched but only end up trying stuff that didn't work for it. I guess what it needs is Codec's.
I installed opensuse 11.3 KDE for the first time last week. Amarok works fine with mp3 files. Also I installed VLC and kaffiene with all available codecs but unfortunately I have no sound in my avi movies. I can not know what is the reason although it was working fine in windows.
1 i have tried to get my sound output working in totem kaffiene and banshee to no avail. reading through several blogs posts and the such of likes has gotten me to ttry and set pulse alsa and oss so im even more confused. i can get a sound test to play but cannot get music to work??
2 i would really like to use audacity to record but it keeps hanging after about three seconds. i purchased a new acer aspire 5532 and deleted windows 7 to encounter
I've been having a problem with intermittent stuttering in video and audio playback since upgrading to Maverick (it also happened when I briefly installed Lucid). It started out as the odd skip every 20 minutes or so but now it can happen 5 or 6 times in 10 minutes when watching a film. I've tried:
reformatting and clean installing using a half-dozen players installing every codec I could think of (only after the normal ones wouldn't help) diangosing my 3 hard drives (the problem occurs on them all and they're not in a RAID setup) changing then changing back my video drivers disabling pulseaudio and ubuntuone-sync (these were not installed in my previous, working setup) looking at every relevant log file (mplayer, smplayer, demsg...) I know of running ubuntu's testing utilities I'm out of ideas. Going back to Jaunty is the only solution I'm pretty sure will work but it's not exactly ideal. It will be a few months a least before I'm able to install a completely new distro.
I've just made the move to openSUSE* and after the installer seemed to bork my xorg.conf because of my Wacom tablet things have been going quite smoothly. My only problem at the moment is that MP3 playback through Exaile, Banshee or Totem stutters and pauses several times per track or more. The only commonality I can see is GStreamer, but nothing is giving me errors to the console.
* I ditched Fedora to get better Monodevelop support after using Redhat 7.3 and 9 followed by FC 3 and 6 then Fedora 7, 8, 9 and 10. The Ubuntu forums seemed to keep giving me occasional answers to questions, but the Suse build service gave me the RPMs, when the requirements matched.
Is there any way to make Ubuntu play sound like Windows 7? I mean when i, for example, listen to music in Windows 7 the sound is much clearer and besides that i can use room correction to obtain a better surround feeling, but when i listen to music in Ubuntu the sound is not very clear and it sounds like stereo even though the sound is played back through all the speakers (the bass is also a little bit to high).
So far i've tried installing the alsa driver and modifying the output levels of each channel, but didn't quite have the same result as the room correction feature in Windows, and the sound wasn't any clearer either. Note: I have an onboard Realtek soundcard and Logitech x530 speakers
I'm running to 11.04 and I can't seem to get the file to play sound. I've tried others and none seem to work. I've tried downloading all sorts of codecs but either not the right ones or just not doing something right...
When I start Audacious and make it play music, after a random time the player freezes up and the music stops playing. I have to make Audacious force quit and restart it, then it works for some time again. When I play a ..... video (in Firefox), it plays fine for some time and then it loses sound and either continues playing silent or the video stops and doesn't start again until I reload the page.
I use kernel 2.6.31-11-rt and the soundcard is... product: AC'97 Sound Controller vendor: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] physical id: 2.7
how poor is sound playback in Ubuntu? I don't know if this is a general problem in all distros, but as a beginner i decided to install Ubuntu as its popular for users with minimalistic or not much knowledge about Linux at all. So in Windows playback sound quality is great, but in Ubuntu it is terrible, why is that? My soundcard is motherboard integrated - Asus M4A77TD PRO. In other forums someone give me advice to write this
today i decided to reformat my ipod classic 160GB after 3 years of usage. I followed the usual steps, incl. entering the rioght firewire id to the config file. When I now upload tracks with gtkpod everything seems fine, but when I then play the songs on my ipod all the songs do stutter like a broken LP. When I connect the ipoad again adn open it with GTKpod i get a message about a playcounter file missing.
is this problem known? I use Ubunut 10.04 on my machine.
I am running ubuntu 10.4, I downloaded VLC player, but when I try to watch a DVD, it only goes as far as the legal warning screen from the dvd movie. What am I doing wrong? I would like to mention that I am a beginner on computers, so not even the average IT skills.
I am having a problem when using Flash. Whenever I am listening to a Flash application (..... primarily), I am unable to hear sound from any other applications (Rhythmbox, movie player, etc).
The converse is also true, if I am using Rhythmbox, and then start ....., the video plays...but with no sound. I have to manually kill the app and web browser (tried multiple...Firefox, Chrome, Swiftfox) to get sounds working correctly. I am my wits end with this problem, and have just putting up with it for several months now.
I use my netbook for basics, Internet, Mail, Office and music. I have most of my movies in .avi/Divx. when I was using Ubuntu the default movie player would play my vids but when I went full screen the movie would just disappear and would have to shut it down and restart it. Just wondering if I will have the same problems with F14/15.
i'm using ubuntu since 8.04, and the current (9.10) is a fresh install on new hdd.the problem was the same each version (8.04, 8.10, 9.04, 9.10) - while i'm playing the video (no matter if i use mplayer [smplayer], gstreamer [totem] or adobe flash plugin [videos]) the playback freezes randomly for about 5-10 sec. during the freeze the movie is still played, i can hear the sound is ok. if i press [space] in smplayer it pauses the playback, so the responses for keyboard actions are ok. not for the mouse clicks however. i can still move the cursor around the screen but it seems the system is not aware of it (clicking on the "pause" button doesnt pause the movie). except the cursor, nothing changes on the screen (if the im [pidgin] window was blinking because of new message, it freezes etc etc).
is there any kind of log i could look into just to try figuring out the problem?it is impossible to watch any movie on my pc (currently i don't have tv)i installed windows on external hdd once and it played videos fine so i suppose it's not hardware problem .
I am new to this forum and have recently switched to Ubuntu. The OS installed without a hitch and was able to get video card, wireless internet installed with relative ease. However, I have encountered a problem installing my E-mu 0404 PCI sound card via the ALSA packages in Synaptic.
Code: 04:03.0 Multimedia audio controller : Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value [1102:0008] As you can see once the packages were installed the OS could see the hardware ok, but when I tried playing a standard MP3 file (16 bit, 44.1khz, 192kbps) in Totem it started playing the file back around 15-20% faster than normal? To me it sounds as if the software is playing the audio back at higher sample rate than 44.1khz hence the faster speed, though I'm not 100% on that.
The next thing I tried was playing the same file back in VLC and it was exactly the same (15-20% too fast), but this time it was horrible and glitchy as well, almost as if the audio buffer size was set to small. The same thing happened when I tried playing back some flac and wav files (all 16 bit, 44.1khz) also. I have searched google (and read the comprehensive sound card guide on this forum) and read several forums, guides, etc. for anybody posting the same issue with this particular card but could find nothing. From all reports I've read this card should work fine under ALSA. For the record I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 64bit kernel running on a Dell Dimension 9200 (Intel Core2Duo E6400 2.13ghz) with 2GB RAM.
Since I upgraded to Lucid Lynx, playing videos with the default player do not work properly. I only see the content while moving the window, or in full screen mode, and in both ways, the picture is distorsioned and with strange colors. Playing it with VLC does work properly ONLY IF I change the video output module to something different as default (X11 works, openGL also) but Linux Framebuffer does not.
The question: Is there a way to change the "default" video mode that Totem (or Kaffeine) use?? I have not found anything on the net with this exact problem.
i have reinstalled my mint 7 and whenever i play downloaded/saved videos from ....., i get a choppy/scratchy audio & video in playback. this was not the case before i reinstalled. videos videos played directly and other dvds played from cdrom and mp3s played from hd are however working fine.
when i play a video (normal and full screen) there are some vertical lines appearing in the video (it actually stutters), this happens in videos and other online video sites as well. i have installed the nvidia software for my graphics card also.
can't get no playback through banshee or rthymbox rthymbox does nothing won't even find media banshee has libary full but won't play dosn't even give me and error or ask for codecs like it did before. every thing worked sweet a month ago but the players kept losing my songs but they never moved. iv've reinstalled both still no joy this is what i have on my system
When I insert a DVD movie, it won;t show up to play. I can't see it when I click on the My Computer icon, and it doesn't show up in the device notifier. I have tried a couple of different DVD's and a couple of different OpenSuse 11.4 computers. This would leave me to believe that it is a setting issue that I am missing. I have never had this issue before with other OpenSuse versions. All I had to do was install all the codecs required and voila!
