Description Patrick Griffin 2003-03-11 22:22:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

Description of problem:
Playing ogg or mp3 files in XMMS with OSS sounds output driver results in
correct playback for a few seconds, then frequencies gradually shift upwards. 
Seeking to a new location in the stream or starting a new stream usually get
audio frequencies back to their correct levels

Xine video playback plays audio more quickly than video; this may be a xine bug
as I'm running xine-lib-beta6.

The TV tuner card correctly plays back audio from the microphone; no frequency /
speed shifting occurs

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce: XMMS
2.load an mp3 or ogg file for 2-30 seconds, listen for upward shifts in audio.
4.restart stream or seek a few seconds behind current location to shift
frequencies back downwards - good demonstration of the difference

Actual Results:  squeaky, fast, crappy audio

Expected Results:  gourgeous stereo Ogg-Vorbis audio
