I have a sound problem on linux mint Cinnamon 16. Whenever I play a song/video on Youtube, Banshee, VLC and the system's volume is high the sound is continuously interrupted like if I was plugging and unplugging really fast. I noticed that this happened even before installing it when I was using the CD to test it. Moreover, I noticed that the higher is the system's volume the more are the interruptions. In fact when it is higher that 90% they are continuous. A solution the I have figured out is to keep the volume at 50% and volume up the speakers.
However, is the any better and more practical way to deal with it?
I am really happy with this linux distro and I am carefully considering moving from Windows.
Thank you in advance
