Previous poster's idea concerning CPU speed sounds like it has much
merit. That would be about all that it could be?? Is this a notebook?
notebook. A Dell 1.6ghz desktop with 1 gig ram, 32 bit system.
For the life of me I cannot think of anything that would do this
the board of all the various "players" of sound or video. I could see
something mis-configured in Xine causing the problem, but mplayer
wouldn't duplicate that with a different playback scheme of keyboard
bindings and setup files.
If the OP has more than one kernel installed, maybe try using the older one?
have had a few kernel upgrades since and I think my config keeps
only 3 kernels around.
So, I ain't rolling back a kernel at this stage. (It started a few weeks ago.)
In my years, I've never heard of this one. And, is this just
happening to a few homebrew audio/video files or all audio/video files?
Like it you went to youtube, are their files playing at a higher than
normal speed? There's gotta be something somewhere to use to narrow down
the problem. You would hope, that is. :) Ric
ALL audio video files. Except that the video is ONLY 1.8x-2.5x
increase and audio
