thanks for the answer.
these issues also happen with Rhythmbox, Totem and Banshee. On the Gnome
systems (Mint 11 and openSUSE 11.4) it also happens with all variants of this
gst-launch-0.10 playbin2 uri=file:///path/to/foo.ogg audio-sink=autoaudiosink
(or pulsesink or alsasink)
in KDE I get a "command not found" on this.
Gstreamer versions of the Gnome distros:
steffen at linux-rwee:~> gst-inspect-0.10 fakesink | grep Version
steffen at linux-rwee:~> gst-inspect-0.10 playbin2 | grep Version
steffen at linux-rwee:~> gst-inspect-0.10 pulsesink | grep Version
steffen at Jorja ~ $ gst-inspect-0.10 fakesink | grep Version
steffen at Jorja ~ $ gst-inspect-0.10 playbin2 | grep Version
steffen at Jorja ~ $ gst-inspect-0.10 pulsesink | grep Version
in KDE there is no reaction on these commands. But the openSUSE system in KDE
version is on the same update level as the Gnome version above.
the versions of libasound are:
- libasound2 188.8.131.52-4.9.1 in both openSUSE 11.4 systems
- libasound2 184.108.40.206-0ubuntu5 in Linux Mint 11
I don´t have the Fedora systems anymore, but they all were on the latest update
The system load on all systems while playing music is between 0.02 and 0.30.
When I use Xine as Backend in KDE, the system load can be 100% on all cores
with 7.9 Gb of RAM used and it does not chop.
To me it does not seem like a system power issue. The computers I have, vary
between Netbook and a 2x2,7 Ghz Intel Core Duo with 8Gb RAM. And all of them
have the same issue with Gstreamer in the same level of severity.
Regarding some "more recent" versions... Maybe, but this will take some time,
as I need these Machines daily and I have to make room for this on the
Let me know if I can deliver some more info...
thanks & regards
