In newer Haiku revisions (as i can remember at least since hrev 45439) wave files aren't properly played. I mean that, when i listen wave files i hear clicks and crackles, but is not due an old/low performance computer (is a modern dual-core pentium, 2,59 Ghz) in fact, if i drag and move windows on my screen, all is ok. And with mp3 files this issue is not present. This happen with every media player: Haiku's Media Player, SoundPlay, SMPlayer/Mplayer and Aplayer. And these file aren't corrupted or something else, since under Windows and Linux, on the same computer, are played fine. This is mediainfo output of one of these wave file:

Curious aspect: if i convert an mp3 files to raw audio (standard wave format 16 bit 44100 Hz) using Haiku's MediaConverter, these files are played without clicks and crackles.

If the mp3 ..etc files had a different sampling rate than WAV files this ticket would remind me of #9438, but I gather from the above it's not the case? @Giova84 maybe try anyway to change the "HDA Output sampling rate" (if you're using HDA) in media preferences, see if it changes things.

All wav and mp3 files have the same samplerate. If i change the output samplerate of HDA (from 192000 to 44100) wave files are properly played without clicks and crackles! But i can remember that, with alpha 4.1 or below, this doesn't occurs.

So, this ticket seems a dup of
