Do these issues also happen with applications such as totem/rhythmbox/banshee,
or with

  gst-launch-0.10 playbin2 uri=file:///path/to/foo.ogg audio-sink=autoaudiosink
(or pulsesink or alsasink)


It sounds quite odd that this issue should persist on all these different
distros with such common hardware.

Also, it looks like the distro versions are a bit out of date, maybe you could
test with something more recent, like a Fedora 16 alpha live CD or so?

It would be interesting to know the GStreamer versions used (of GStreamer core,
gst-plugins-base and gst-plugins-good), via:

  gst-inspect-0.10 fakesink | grep Version
  gst-inspect-0.10 playbin2 | grep Version
  gst-inspect-0.10 pulsesink | grep Version

There was a bug in libasound some time ago that caused problems (crackles) 
when alsa was converting audio formats internally, but if that was the problem
then things should work fine with pulse.

Seems unlikely that high load would cause such (persistent) issues, but maybe
you could check the actual system load with top or some system monitor, just in
