Applications start to freeze when playing music

Hello all!
I have a decent laptop 4GB ram and intel i5 processor. It works fine and very fast for all tasks, but when I play some music the load average increases and everything starts to freeze very frequently. If I stop the music, the applications unfreeze at the same time. I tried lots of players and playback engine (gstreamer, mplayer) and it is always the same.
I also checked the cpu usage. Seems normal - barely gets more than 10%. It also happened on my ubuntu installation. I have my system up to date.
Anyone have an idea of what it could be?

Re: Applications start to freeze when playing music

Hi,

have you checked what program exactly takes the load? The player or something else?

Re: Applications start to freeze when playing music

What exactly about the load increases? (You say not CPU usage so presumably something else. Memory? Or?)

Anything in the logs?

Re: Applications start to freeze when playing music

@10robinho I'm not sure what is exactly the program that takes the load. How do I check that?

@cfr right now my load average is

 10:04:10 up 14:39,  3 users,  load average: 0.06, 0.28, 0.27

If I play some sound, it starts to increase and may reach 4.00 if I don't stop. It doesn't happen 100% of the times. Right now it is not happening. I have no idea why. Here is my .xsession-errors, is there anything wrong with it?

Re: Applications start to freeze when playing music

Can you try to use mplayer on the command line without X running? So we can eliminate some possibilities

Re: Applications start to freeze when playing music

Next time it happens, also try to simpy run "top" to see which exact process is responsible for the load.

Re: Applications start to freeze when playing music

@Wilco
I tried mplayer without x server running and seemed to play with no problems. Could the problem be some hardware incompatibility with x server?
EDIT: I just tried it again without x server running and I could reproduce it. It seems to happen only when I do some parallel activity with the sound playing.

Firefox is in the top but I don't think the problem is with it, since if I simply pause the audio everything gets back to normal at the same moment.

It is likely this https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=804893 based on the "Window manager warning: Log level 8: meta_window_actor_mapped: assertion `!priv->mapped' failed" line

Re: Applications start to freeze when playing music

I think it has to do with Xserver.  I have mine setup correctly, but if I'm running something like stellarium and mplayer, mplayer stops.
If I run xawtv and mplayer, xawtv continues to run audio, but the video stops.


I may have to CONSOLE you about your usage of ridiculously easy graphical interfaces...
Look ma, no mouse.
