Hi Bob:

I'm not trying to defend or advocate mpd. If you look back at
the original thread that I quoted (it's in the archives) you will
see that several other people have experienced similar problems.
I was reporting my observations in case my findings were
pertinent to them.

Strange, I have never encountered this (the "buffer_before_play"
directive is commented out in mpd.conf and sound is outputting
directly to my M-Audio Revolution 7.1) . For example, for a stress
test, I am currently listening to music with mpd, while compiling
the git version of ffmpeg, watching TV on my Hauppauge 2250 with
mplayer and writing this in Emacs with no sound dropping. This is
all on a lowly core2 duo machine. I have never had the sound
dropping even on my old P4 Prescott machine. Do you see anything
strange in /var/log/messages?

Charles

There is nothing helpful in the mpd.log file, either
Should I be looking for something else?
