Since FC24 sound skips sometimes with pulseaudio
I have noticed this using mplayer (every 30 minutes or so), and also on youtube (on youtube it happens more often actually, say every 10 mins), but randomly, i.e. impossible to predict. I have even disabled all cronjobs, and it still happens.
Sound just "skips", missing say half a second or so, sometimes. You notice it when people speak, suddenly a word is missing. This could be a video/sound sync issue. But the files which played ok on FC23, now fail on FC24/25.
Interestingly, this manifests itself on my wife's old (very old) Vaio Laptop, in a different fashion. When the laptop starts you can hear "loud chirps", and then randomly, say 4 or 5 times during the day, the thing just chirps. Wife thinks there's an insect running around inside LOL. I have not checked playing video there yet, since her laptop is to slow for that.
I run pulseaudio, and I have not tested this in any other sound configuration.
