[SOLVED] Mint 12 - Sound problems (crackling)

Postby alquimista on Sat Jul 28, 2012 5:36 pm

Hi,

I have had Mint 12 with Cinammon for sometime now. Sound was working great... in YouTube, Banshee... etc. Yet, maybe after an automatic update (I'm not sure), problems begun. Within YouTube whether its in Firefox or Google Chrome, when the music/track sound goes up, the little speaker icon in the panel bar shows variations in volume levels. I get into the sound control when the problem shows up, and the sound control by itself goes down on high sound pitches or output and then goes down again. Its spoiling sound output... It happens in Banshee as well; I instaled Amarok in Mint 12 Cinammon... and the same.

I tried this with Mint 13 (KDE and Cinammon), and ther is no such a problem ther. What could it be?

The only way I'm finding to kind of workaround it... is turn volume down to about the middle of the scale in Mint Volume Control... and sound quality output has not as bad distortion, as in the about 80% of default volume level
