I have a AM2 based system with 4GB ram and 500GB HDD. I have dedicated the whole system to Linuxmint 14 KDE after going throug a lot of reviews over the net about the same.
I also have a creative sound blaster Audigy Live series sound card connected to a Creative 7.1 speaker system.
My problem is that whenever I play Music through Amarok, I have no problem whatsoever. But when I play any movies thorough Kaffine or VLC the audio goes mute after about 5~10 minutes of play. Then I have to restart the application and replay the file which again plays for the next 5~10 minutes and again mutes. I read on the net that the cause for this could be Pulseaudio, I tried to remove Pulseaudio and switch over to ALSA, but then I am not able to leverage the full potential of my 7.1 system, the system plays stereo.
