    Hi all.

    • with mplayer: videos don't play

    • with sox: at the end of the play of the selection, the play restarts (again and again...)

    • with libjack0: the play continues after the end of the selection. With libjack0 and jackd, the sound sizzles and all conversions are impossible

    • with all (mplayer or sox or libjack0): when i extract a video selection, the sound doesn't correspond (it starts from the beginning) at the images

    I use the version on kubuntu hardy

      problem 1) - not LiVES specific

      problem 2) - unable to reproduce this - it works fine here.

      problem 3) - also unable to reproduce (may be 64 bit specific - are you using 64 bit ?)

      problem 4) - this is an issue with mplayer (does not synchronise audio with offset video for some file formats); suggested workaround is to manually adjust the audio by cutting or inserting silence

      Sorry for the delay; I think this may be ubuntu specific, and I have been unable to reproduce it on my machine.

      I am taking a look into this now with the ubuntu packager.
