About 2 weeks ago, my sound/video system started playing back
everything at double-triple speed!
Actually video seems like double speed but audio is like 3-4x!
Over the time in years from FC3, 4, 5, 6, 8, there have been various
multimedia engines installed on this box.
I have no idea where to start!
Any idea please?
Try lower-level tools like "aplay" to play a test WAV file.
$ rpm -qf $(which aplay)
Disable pulseaudio if it is running (the process has the same name), then
try again. If everything is still 3-4x faster, boot into the previous
kernel version. That way you may be able to find out that something
in ALSA in the kernel causes these problems.
