Well modified initially resample-method to
resample-method=speex-float-1, and the sound was chopy, but
modified now to resample-method=speex-float-0 and works fine.

OK, I need to know what proper backend to use. This is a distribution
and I suppose people want something that
works out of the box. Can xine do it? Or I should go to VLC (note this
is a GNU distro, so only freeeeeee :))
