Watching an AVI in VLC (this happens with every AVI I play), the sound works fine for a while, then cuts out (after anywhere from five to twenty minutes), giving me the following errors repeatedly:
oss error: write failed (Input/output error)main debug: audio output is too slow (613567), trashing 21333usmain warning: audio drift is too big (137288 ), dropping buffer
Sound in the video comes back once I have changed any audio setting in VLC (except for volume), and then cuts-out again later (and comes back after changing the setting again or another setting).
This problem only arises when watching a video, and to my knowledge only in VLC (totem runs too slow to watch a video anyways). This problem was not present before I switched from alsa to OSS4. I am running Hardy, and everything else related to sound works fine.
