Hey Dan,

That worked ... its stuttering .. but keeps playing  .... thanks a ton !

osssink: wav file play fine
             mp3 files, http links stutter but output sound when buffer-time=1000 latency-time=100 sync=false

         
Is there any such fix for esdsink ??
Are there more properties that can be modified to stop the stuttering ??

regards,
raj

Hi Raj,

Have you tried sync=false in the osssink?  I'm not sure that this is
within your purposes but in some cases that removes the glitches.
