Perhaps that also happen with other type of audio files, i happen to use wave for event sound since my Amiga days, i guess i could use mp3 now :)
I attached R5 bebeep.wav file as a test case (that was the sound produced if you modified the system volume for exemple).
I selected high as priority because it really mess with sound and i consider this a stability problem as high as crashing.
The problem does not appear with VLC. In media player the small files do not show right as far as the file size bar is concerned. When using sound event, the sound event can sound scratchy and is the same with playsound so i guess they both are the same.
So right now to keep my sound reliability, i needed to disable all the sound notification (i have a soundblaster SBlive PCI if that matter).
If i don't disable those, when one play i can somehow corrupt my sound playing ability. Mediaplayer can then take a lot of cpu power and almost prevent me to be able to use the deskbar (menu take forever to appear) so i use ctrl-alt-del to kill media player. The deskbar volume icon then flash with a red x on it. I can sometime get the whole thing to comeback without a reboot but most of the time it require one.
All in all this seem to be the very last audio problem i have with that installation and that hardware.
