Description David Flogeras 2004-04-29 02:34:02 UTC
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.
Comment 2 Carlos Vendramini 2004-04-30 02:31:40 UTC
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..
Example here:
Windows Media: mms://
Real Media: rtsp://
Another example:
Windows Media: mmsh://
Real Media: rtsp://
Any ideaas???

Comment 4 fbusse 2004-05-08 00:27:56 UTC
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)
Comment 5 fbusse 2004-05-11 09:42:33 UTC
It's fixed in the current xine-lib CVS (at least it works for me now).
Comment 6 fbusse 2004-05-12 08:37:16 UTC
Carlos, could you please have a look at #50854 and let me know if it works for you?
