I'm trying to play a file that is coming from a slow network drive. The
drive is slow, but has about 3x the bandwidth as should be necessary to
However, the I/O 'read' request is not being issued in time to provide
the buffer to the pipeline in time, and the audio skips horribly.
I attribute this to insufficient sink buffering, as that is really the
only part of the pipeline I have full control over (via
To debug, I am trying the following:
gst-launch --gst-debug-level=1 filesrc \
location=file.mp3 ! \
mad ! \
audioconvert ! \
audioresample ! \
osssink latency-time=2000000 buffer-time=10000000 \
I have tried both alsasink and osssink, with various settings for
latency-time, buffer-time,nd preroll-queue-len, none of which make one
whit of difference.
Is there something I'm missing? How do I force read-ahead on the pipeline?
