Hi Gary,


I also noticed that on the SabreLite, mplayer is using an additional
and that it was built using hard floating point (the OMAP3 is soft).

Any ideas?
Are you forcing ALSA output using '-ao alsa'? I've seen some issues
OSS emulation and I'm not sure of the default.

Please advise,
No, I'm using it straight
# mplayer FILE.mp3
Same on both platforms
Do you see an output line indicating the AO used?

It should show something like this:
AO: [alsa] 44100Hz 2ch s16le (2 bytes per sample)

Can you try using '-ao alsa'?
Same results. Here's everything printed by mplayer:

This is likely the culprit. I don't think that floatle is a valid audio
format for either the SGTL5000 or HDMI devices:
It makes sound - just choppy (not like it makes only noise)

Give a listen to these to hear what I'm talking about.

Starting playback...

To see if this is user code or kernel driver, I tried running my OMAP3
file system on the SabreLite (the OMAP3/Cortex-A8 is pretty much a
of the CPU). Same results - broken sound when using mplayer :-(

I tested it with Gstreamer and it worked with a charm

gst-launch filesrc location=/home/root/blurred_lines.mp3 ! mpegaudioparse ! beepdec ! audioconvert ! alsasink

Just my 2 cents.
Agreed, it works fine with gstreamer, just not mplayer which works
great on all of my other platforms :-(
