View Full Version : Choppy sound in .avi files
21st February 2008, 07:09 AM
Other than this and a small suspend prob. everything seems to be working just fine in F8. ;)
Whenever I try to play an avi file in VLC the sound is choppy, but the video is great. Not sure how to handle this one :confused:
I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A105 S2051
As I said, I'm running Fedora 8. Let me know if you need more info
Thanks in advance. :)

I'm having exactly the same problem of Fumoffu.

Yeah it's weird. You think installing the avi codecs would help? I wouldn't think so, because VLC is supposed to play that stuff by default right?

VLC , XINE, XINE, Totemplayer, movieplayer, GXine.... all fail to correctly play .avi files taken from my digital camera. the sound is either choppy or distorted.. i have tried skrewing around with the audio settings in each as well with little to no success.
this has bothered me for some time now.. anyone else experiencing this with FC8

Hmm, .avi plays fine in everything except VLC for me. Totem plays them flawlessly :D
What codecs do you have installed?

I don't know how to set these in GNOME, but in KDE Control Center, I have set audio to play with real-time priority and as large a buffer as possible, in order to avoid problems with skipping.

I'm using xfce would it be possible to do this in there? I know how limited xfce can be :/, but it's fast so I use it.
I appreciate the reply ^_^

Off hand, I do not know where you might set those variables in XFCE. In fact, I don't know what config file KControl Center changes when those values are set. But there must be some config file or variable that gets changed. Sorry - if I find out, I'll post back, but don't sit there waiting....
