Hi all,

I'm using OpenSuse 10.1 and the sound system is set up correctly (Alsa &
SoundBlaster Live 5.1 card) cause everything plays alright.
Quite often I've got this annoying problem with playing clips from the
internet be it from Konqueror or Firefox.

What happens is that the clip (audio or video) plays and then for no
apparent reason about 1 second of the clip gets stuck in a loop and is
repeated ad infinitum. The remedy is to kill the nspluginviewer when
using Konqueror or to leave the site with Firefox.

So you're never sure you can hear the clip in its entirety or not which
is damn irritating. Let alone giving a demo about Linux and then having
this thing happening.

Has anyone witnessed this and better nows what's wrong?


Are you using the v9 beta of Shockwave Flash plugin for Firefox? This beta does this and I had to revert back to the released version (7) to get back my sanity.


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought that tragedy is just around the corner.
