I used to have fc4 running with superb dvd playback, superb avi playback and superb audio.
I upgraded to FC5; Now
- mplayer plays back too fast (and reports my system is too slow)
- xmms plays horribly fast
- xawtv crashes on startup (segmentation fault)
- dvd playback (using mplayer) is way too slow
And there's absolutely no audio (to be heard).
As usual, lspci reports my soundblaster live as a vga compatbile device. Gnome doesn't detect soundcard, but it seems as if ALSA has covered the card.
I remember having audio issues when upgrading to FC4. I've fiddled with aumix, alsamixer, gnome volume control, yet no audio and botched video playback (either way too fast (avi), or way too slow (dvd)).
Could this have something to do with samplerates? mplayer plays back 48000hz audio, while I seem to recall that it used resample to 44100.
Why does this always occur just before I go out and rent a dvd?
