Sound card: m-audio audiophile 2496. Works perfectly in all sound programs,
including xmms, xine, vlc, and mplayer for dvd's and sound on the hard disk. No
streaming audio is heard even though mplayer recognizes the source (example:
http://www.rainydawg.org/listen/high.m3u). In mplayer-1.0-pre5 entering the
command: mplayer /dev/dtv 44.3 would open the hdtv channel for Fox New York with
sound. Now video is perfect, but no sound. Streaming audio works perfectly for vlc.
`/.mplayer/config shows ao=alsa:device=ice (ice is from ~/.asoundrc for the
first sound card designated as: pcm:ice. Alternate command line entry of: -ao
alsa:device=iec958 is also ineffective.
If playing a dvd with the -ac hwac3 option, hwac3 is recognized. Not with
USE flags as follows:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.mplayer with either -ao alsa:device=ice or -ao alsa:device=iec958 -- both are
recognized. Neither are required to play a sound file or dvd.
2.hdtv address with -ac hwac3 such as /dev/dtv 44.3 or streaming audio: http:(as
3. Sound settings in alsamixer and envy24control which work for on disk sound,
do not work for streaming audio.
Video (if hdtv) is perfect. No sound, No recognition of the hwac3 codec.
Internet radio: appears to play, but no sound.
Played audio as had been the case in mplayer-1.0-pre5
Bill, is this still an issue in newer versions of mplayer?
