Today I figured I would take a shot at figuring out the audio situation. Earlier I had unmuted everything. I figured a good way to test the audio would be playing some music from youtube.
While the music does play, it is kind of choppy and not of the best quality. Reading the wiki, there are some suggestions regarding
.asoundrc or /etc/asound.conf
Neither one of these exist. There is also no mention that I must create such files, but that I "should be able to play and record sound without either). Does this mean I must create them? Or just the /etc one?
I was thinking I should do something with dmix, any suggestions as how to get better quality?
I don't think I want to use pulseaudio as I am using xfce4.
The speakers are sporadically making small little popping sounds, small static that one can hear when nothing is playing as well as when things are playing (and that makes listening to anything sub-par). It sounds fine in Windows.Edited by benpack101 - 6/9/13 at 1:00pm
