Choppy sound in flash videos in Chrome with ALSA

I uninstalled pulse audio (because it was more trouble than it's worth) and now having just ALSA, sound in flash videos is choppy. It had not been like that before, when I had just ALSA before installing Pulse.

I'm seeing the same thing although I never used pulseaudio. It started after upgrading a bunch of packages. Can't remember which ones though.

Are you using chrome/chromium ? in my case, launching it with --audio-buffer-size=4096 did the trick

Damn it, it worked for 2 days, and now it does the same thing even with the chrome command line in place...

Re: Choppy sound in flash videos in Chrome with ALSA

I have had the problem with these browsers as well as with firefox. It seems I have resolved the issue playing with dimix device parameters playing in /etc/asound.conf (or with ~/.asoundrc if you use last one). Look at alsa wiki.

http://alsa.opensrc.org/Dmix

I avoid and don't use pulseaudio (in fact is isn't installed).


"I exist" is the best myth I know..

I solved it again, this time with part of brebs'  asound config.

Re: Choppy sound in flash videos in Chrome with ALSA

Ok, the problem is solved when I run the laptop for the first time, but as soon as I suspend it and resume, the choppy sound in flash in Chrome is back.

What to do?
