-if ((err = snd_pcm_hw_params_set_period_size(alsa_handler,alsa_hwparams, chunk_size, 0)) < 0)
+if ((err = snd_pcm_hw_params_set_period_size_near(alsa_handler,alsa_hwparams, chunk_size, 0)) < 0)
This fixes the periodsize error.
what version of mplayer is this for ?
Look at http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=124976 for info about this bug
Bouncing this to media-video, since it's their package.
Re: Comment #2
According to the forum post, it was fixed in a non-mplayer based post. Is this still a bug, if not, can you close it?
