Odd MP3, WAV and FLAC Behaviour
I have been having problems playing back MP3 or FLAC files from numerous players.
The problem is if I move my mouse, the sound gets jumpy and plays back with blips and frequency jumps...if I stop moving my mouse it works fine.
This doesn't happen with AVI or DIVX playback...the audio is fine.
I have actually also noticed it with WAV playback as well...
It tends to happen more on longer songs...I don't notice it on short audio clips.
If I re-install Ubuntu...everything is fine for a while then it starts happening again, without changing any installed software...
I have tried manual removal and reinstallation of ALSA...thinking it was getting corrupted somehow and that's why a total OS reinstall helped...but that' wasn't it...
Oh...everything works fine in Windows XP...so it's not a hardware issue...
