Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Headset Sounds Distorted / Fix It?

May 12, 2010

Hi, I have a Creative HS-1200 headset. When I am listening to sound through it, and something makes a motion on screen(compiz, movie...really anything) then the sound is distorted. Like it takes a nanosecond pauses to redraw. This does not happen with my normal soundcard. Can anyone tell me how can I fix this?

Fedora :: Gnome Login Sounds Distorted

Aug 29, 2009

I am running latest fc11. the startup sound (desktop-login.ogg) always plays distorted. it plays a chord or two, slight pause, plays another chord, etc.. skips about as much as it plays. i found if i run canberra-gtk-play with the ogg file from a terminal, it plays fine. i changed it to play /usr/share/sounds/startup3.wav, but it also plays distorted during startup. plays fine from a terminal or thru natilus. i have installed the pulse-audio through the "perfect" guide.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get The Sound To Work - No Web Sounds - No CD Sounds

Sep 1, 2011

I have a HP laptop model HP G72 Notebook PC, Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 350 @2.27GHz & the Sound devices are Intel(R) Display Audio & Realtek High Definition Audio.

This machine came loaded with Windows7 & I have successfully dual booted it with Ubuntu Lucid 10.04.3.

The problem I am having is that I cannot get the sound to work at all in Ubuntu. No opening sounds or anything else that I have tried. No Web sounds, no CD sounds... All sounds work fine on the Windows side, but nothing I have tried so far seem to work with Ubuntu & I have tried many options from many threads.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Distorted Sound After A While Using Mic?

Jun 9, 2011

I run two sound cards on my system, one dedicated while the other is built-in on my motherbard.

cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [NVidia ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
HDA NVidia at 0xdfff0000 irq 23


I am not able to get any sound recorded through my mic using my XFi card. It records the sound my computer makes, thought. In other words, if I play a song, it'll play through the capture channel making people on voip application hear it. For some reason. But I am not able to get any sound through the mic.

I have tried to mute and unmute every channel in alsamixer, and tried to change the soundcard profile as well in gnome sound preferences. No luck.

If I use my NVidia built-in sound card however, I am able to talk. But after a random period of time, the sound through my headphones begin to distort, badly, while the voice from my mic comes through clear. People can hear me clearly, but I can't hear them at all because of the distortion. It sound really, really bad.

At first I thought it was a bug with skype, but it happens in other voip clients such as gTalk.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Popping And Distorted Sound On 10.04?

Jul 6, 2010

I did a clean install to 10.04. Not too many issues except any sound I play sounds like it's underwater and pops while playing. I have tried to do the Pulse Audio install, but every time I loaded pauvcontrol (I think was the title), it would pop up "Connection Failure: Connection Refused." I tried to follow other guides, but they'd all fail because I'd be missing half of the files it changed. I have a Creative Labs X-Fi Fatality card that has given me troubles in the past, but usually, it works. I tried to install Creative's open driver, but again, I had an error when I attempted to Make the directory.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Issues : Fuzzy , Distorted / Fix It?

Feb 17, 2010

So I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my second hard drive. I also just got a new pair of speakers. When I plugged in these speakers, they sounded pretty crappy ie: bad bass, distortion, etc. At first I figured it was because I bought cheap speakers and I was going to send them back. But instead, I booted up windows and voila... The sound was much better.

So I'm trying to figure out whats up (mind you I'm pretty new to Ubuntu) I looked up my sound card: nVidia AC97 and Ubuntu recognizes and apparently has drivers for this. I also followed the sound problems guide posted in this forum. Got as far as the "ALSA driver Compilation" step without much luck. It installed some stuff, but didn't follow what that guide said it would do.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Colors Distorted In Vlc, Totem 10.10 X64?

Dec 15, 2010

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 x64, and the colors in my videos are distorted. Blue seems to be the primary tint over everything. This problem occurs regardless of video format (avi, mkv, flv, etc) and regardless of video player I use (banshee, totem, vlc, etc). However, no other colors in my operating system are distorted; it's only for these movies. I also have an NVidia video card, which I installed the latest driver for through the restricted drivers pop up.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Headset Is Not Being Detected

Mar 4, 2010

I gotta say that Ubuntu 9.10 is a fantastic OS. I've been dual booting for about 4 years with Ubuntu and I want to scream to the world that Linux is finally a better OS than Mac or Windows. Having said that, I have an issue that I can't get around...

For some reason my USB headset is not being detected. I'm using the 32 bit version of Ubuntu 9.10 on a run-of-the-mill Intel-based desktop rig that I built myself. One of the mass-market programs that I still use is Skype so I can voice chat with friends and family - however, since the upgrade to 9.10 I can't get the mic to work (Plantronics USB headset - headset speakers work fine). The reason I can't get it to work is because the headset is not detected. The audio setting is set to "Analog Stereo Output" by default which does work perfectly in every other way.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Headset Not Working?

Nov 29, 2010

So I'm trying to get my usb headset to work. Right now I can adjust the volume and mute using the buttons on the headset, but I can't get sound toplay through it or the microphone to work.When I go to System --> Preferences --> Sound I can see that there is a driver "USB PnP Sound Device" under the "Hardware" tab. When I go to the output tab and click on the "USB PnP Sound Device" then I just can't hear anything at all. I can adjust the volume with my headset regardless of whether I have "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" or "USB PnP Sound Device

Debian Multimedia :: Incomplete Or Distorted Typography

Apr 27, 2011

I'm using Debian Testing and I have a little problem with the fonts, fonts behave somewhat strange. Usually happens with Iceweasel, but I've noticed sometimes in the window list panel or terminal. To give you an idea of what I speak, I leave the image:

Look at the letter b, and not always the case with that letter, sometimes the S or L. I've tried several fonts. Even deleted the folder. fontconfig, but still happening. Has anyone had a similar problem? It can be a server problem with graphics? Using xserver-xorg-video-intel

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - Logitech USB Headset Low Sound

May 2, 2010

I just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 and everything is ok except my USB Logitech Headset. The problem is that volume of the device is very low and I can't hear the music or any sound like I use to heard. Even if I increase the volume up to 100%, I still hearing the sound with a very low volume. But if I use the analog output of my sound card I can hear very well. I remember that i used to have this problem in ubuntu 9.10 but I fixed with a script that I found it in this forum, but I can't find it again.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Headset Not Working After Hibernation?

Jul 12, 2010

I have a Microsoft LX-3000 USB headset that has been working fine for me on all of my Ubuntu machines... until today. I accidentally clicked on "Hibernate" instead of "Shut Down" on my Lucid laptop this morning, and something seemed a little off about the hibernation process, although I don't remember exactly what happened. Anyway, since I woke this machine up, I can't get sound out of the headset. I've plugged it into multiple USB ports and can still use the microphone and the volume controls just fine, but there's no output. (Yes, I've made sure the device is enabled for output in my sound preferences).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Bluetooth Headset As Headphones?

Mar 9, 2011

I have a Sony Ericsson HBH-PV700 bluetooth headset that came packaged with a Sony Ericsson K510i phone.I was hoping to be able to use it under Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat as a headset and POSSIBLY as a microphone...I don't think it supports a2dp, so maybe this is a waste of effort. The Bluetooth adapter I'm using is Bluetooth 2.0 compilant, as far as I know. (It may be 1.2, but there's no way it's 1.1 compilant).

I have paired it with my PC and tried finding it as output and input in the Sound Preferences...no option. There's nothing in [System > Preferences > Multimedia Systems Selector] either! I have also tried the instructions at the Ubuntu Community Help Pages for Bluetooth Headset. However, my system fails to initialise the module-alsa-sink and module-alsa-source via the pactl command .I don't even know if it is possible with this device, but I'm willing to give anything a try! P.S. I'm not comfortable with installing a ton of packages just for one thing, but if there's no other option it's fine, I guess.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: None Of Notification Sounds Work / Skype, Firefox, And Wine Still Give Sounds?

Feb 24, 2010

I've been using opensuse for about a week.(although I'm not completely a linux noob) I've been slowly moving more of the stuff I do on windows over to suse. I thought my sound was working fine until I decided to get mp3s running on amarok. I followed a bunch of guides which didn't work. While I was messing around with stuff I noticed a startup noise. I just assumed it didn't have a startup noise. At some point I broke all of my sound except running wine, so I reinstalled.

Now that I've noticed, none of my notification sounds work. Stuff like skype, firefox, and wine still give me sounds.

(If anyone could point me in the direction of a good place to get mp3s working on amarok would be nice as well.)

Debian Multimedia :: Distorted Resolution - Only Running At 1024x768 ?

Oct 1, 2010

I recently installed Debian 5.0 (Lenny) on a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. I have been banging my head trying to figure out why my laptop display (15.6" optimum resolution 1366x768) is only running at 1024x768. This was not a problem in Ubuntu even as far back as 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) which came pre-installed.

I am running kernel 2.6.32 (from Backports) to get WiFi to work and it still hasn't remedied the video oddities.

How do I either:

1) Letterbox the 1024x768 so that it isn't distorted?

or, more preferably,

2) Display in the full 1366x768?

My video card is:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)

I also have the xserver-xorg-video-intel driver from the stable repositories installed.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Encoding Video For DVD - Distorted Sound (AC3)

Aug 1, 2011

It is well known that mencoder can be used to encode video to be burned on DVD with a tool like dvdauthor. The whole procedure is described here:
7.8. Using MEncoder to create VCD/SVCD/DVD-compliant files

Sound for a DVD is normally encoded with AC3. I encountered some cases where the encoded sound was badly distorted. As it seems, the default for the input changed to float at some point. The fix for this is to use:
instead of "acodec=ac3".

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get USB Headset To Auto Select In Skype?

Feb 20, 2010

I can get my Plantronics USB headset to work with Skype. So far so good.

However if I plug the headset in to use with skype, I have to go to sound preferences to get the usb headset to be the selected audio device. It is automatically detected but is not selected.

Is there a way to have ubuntu netbook remix automatically select the usb headset as soon as it is detected after being plugged in?

Win7 behaves this way and my wife is used to it. Visiting the sound preferences every time the headset is plugged in won't do. Answering a call in Skype requires that the headset be selected straight away. Leaving it plugged in all the time isn't convenient either.

ASUS EeePC 900
Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10, recently updated.

Don't want to have to resort to installing Win7 again.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Logitech G35 USB Headset Dolby Support?

May 12, 2010

Been using Windows 7 for a good while but would love to make a switch over to Ubuntu i installed via WUBI the 64bit of 10.4. The headset is detected and the mic is detected and both work fine but the Dolby 7.1 "effect" does not work at all. Now in Windows a app has to be running for the Dolby part to work. Any thought on how to get that to also work in Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Switch The Output From Between The Speaker And The Headset?

Oct 17, 2010

I'm still on UBUNTUO 9.04 atm - I'm getting myself a Logitech USB headset. I plugged it in, and immediately I see this in dmesg

[ 7015.732141] input: Logitech Logitech USB Headset as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.1/usb4/4-2/4-2:1.3/input/input11[ 7015.732234] generic-usb 0003:046D:0A0B.0006: input,hidraw3: USB HID v1.00 Device [Logitech Logitech USB Headset] on usb-0000:00:1a.1-2/input3 [ 7280.088017] usb 1-3: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3

Which is fantastic. Tested this on all kind of audio and I can hear them fine. So headset is working wonders. Except, everytime I want to switch the output from between the speaker and the headset, I have to go System > Preference > Sound > output tab > click on the switch. Which is fine, but the switching procedure via GUI is very arduous. Is there a way to to do this via the command line, if so I can bind it to a hotkey and therefore with one hotkey I will be able to switch between headset vs my speaker?
