Since upgrading to xine-lib-1-rc3-r3 (and xine-ui-0.9.23-r2) everytime I play a WMV file, the audio comes out as static (video seems fine). I dont think it is the CODEC, since Kaboodle plays the same files perfectly; just to be sure, I re-emerged win32codecs but it did not fix it.
I have confirmed this behaviour on two machines (Athlon XP 1800+, Pentium Centrino Laptop). Some stats below for the AMD machine:
2.6.5-gentoo-r1 #2 Sat Apr 24 16:28:40 ADT 2004 i686 AMD Athlon(TM) XP1800+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
gcc (GCC) 3.3.2 20031218 (Gentoo Linux 3.3.2-r5, propolice-3.3-7)
CFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -falign-functions=4 -mfpmath=sse"
I'm recompiling faad2, ffmpeg and now Xine to try resolve this issue. I'm having the same problem with xine-lib-1-rc4.
Below the transcription of my mail to xine-users-mailinglist
I'm using xine-lib-1-rc4 installed via Gentoo Portage at a machine with Kernel 2.6.5 (alsa enabled
into kernel). The frontend is Gxine. Real Player streaming are ok.
The question is that when I try access windos media content the video is fine but sound seems as a
sound of static, just the noise..

I've the same problem. Every xine-lib version >1_rc2 doesn't play any sound in Windows Media Files on my machine. mplayer works fine.
Even setting CFLAGS="-O1" doesn't help.
Portage 2.0.50-r6 (default-x86-1.4, gcc-3.3.2, glibc-2.3.2-r9, 2.6.5)
It's fixed in the current xine-lib CVS (at least it works for me now).
Carlos, could you please have a look at #50854 and let me know if it works for you?
closing with xine-lib-1_rc4-r1 wich is rc4a
works for me!
