Audacious skips while playing

Added by Zdravko Nikolov over 7 years ago

Hi,

I have started using audacious recently on my Ubuntu precise. What I have noticed is that the playback will skip/stutter from time to time no matter what format is played. This dosn't happen if i use and external (to my thinkpad) card or an usb dac. Do you have an idea?

Which Audio Output Plugin do you use in Audacious? And which buffer size?

RE: Audacious skips while playing - Added by Zdravko Nikolov over 7 years ago

I use pulseaudio and the buffer size is 1500ms (all defaults).

This is actually clipping. It happens no matter what setting I apply in the prefs...

Try bypassing PulseAudio and outputting directly to ALSA. If that fixes the skipping or stuttering (whichever it is), then you probably need to configure PulseAudio differently, or disable it altogether.

Yes, choosing ALSA output fixes this on the X41. However on a thinkpad X60 with the same OS and packages, it works.

If ALSA output works, then you need to configure PulseAudio differently. Or disable it, if you don't think configuring it is worth your time.
