View Full Version : MP3 files and Ogg files break up

1st June 2008, 02:51 AM
Im trying to play m93s on FC9 i got Liviada thing. and now it will play them. but it breaks up at points in a song. I converted the song to ogg using Audacity (on Windows) and transferred them over. and the same thing happenes. I have tried using Amarok, JuK, Kaffeine etc. Banshee didnt work at all. the only thing that played the oggs was SoX via terminal. but i want a gui based one so i can just let it run. instead of having to type the song in everytime.
Any help is appreciated.

Sound works in Windows perfecly and as i said the ogg file sounds fine in terminal but not on any of the programs. I doubt its a hardware issue. .

how is your audio set up on the system
pulse audio - with alsa mixer
oss mixer
there are quite a few threads on pulse audio on the forum
i have had no problems using mplayer with pulse audio and SMplayer ( gui front end to mplayer )

I changed all of em to ALSA and now Banshee works.. Amarok,JuK, and Kaffeine still break up at points. but as long as 1 works i think im ok.
