#10850 new bug

Problem with small wav files

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.

Seems to be a dupe of #9438.

Here it plays ok with playfile, almost ok with playsound (there is a glitch after the sound finishes, probably a buffer is not cleared), and too fast with playwav. Are your results similar?

Yes, Same thing.

I cant seem to be able to replicate the audio crashes but the machine that was doing this is now on the todo pile (it need capacitor changes, still have the same sound card that said). I think the problem came with lot of use, as i cant use the PC full time with new build because of the lightstreamer regression i can't test it as normal.

Also media player progress bar still dont go all the way to the end, just as before.
