I installed kaffeine/xine to play audio CDs and some web radios but I
just can't get them to work properly. I'm hitting the following problems:
- Audio CDs play but there's a kind of cracking/scratching noise all
along, like when you listen to scratched vynil records. There's no
noise when I listen to the same CDs with kscd.
- real stream audio comes out garbled. I noticed this particularly with
rtsp://18.104.22.168:554/broadcast/wkcr.rm. This doesn't happen with
I had a look at xine's settings but honestly couldn't figure out which
settings might be tweaked to solve the above problems. I did change
buffers.audio_num_buffers, doubling it from 230 to 460. This looked
promising, but the problems persisted.
The relevant software versions are:
Debian Sarge (up-to-date) kernel 2.4.27-2-686
Does anybody know of any documents that describe how to tune and troubleshoot kaffeine/xine for audio output ?
Thanks in advance for your help
