Description Giacomo Perale 2005-06-08 19:00:52 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. install alsa-lib 1.0.9
2. install gst-plugins 0.8.9
3. play a ogg or mpc file, for example with gst-launch-0.8 filesrc
location="file.ogg" ! spider ! alsasink

Stack trace:

Other information:
this is an example of the output I can see in console:

ghepeu@KazeNoTani ~ $ LC_ALL="C" gst-launch-0.8 filesrc
location="lugradio-s2e12-280305.ogg" ! spider ! alsasink
RUNNING pipeline ...
ERROR: from element /pipeline0/alsasink0: Could not get/set settings from/on

Execution ended after 15 iterations (sum 1156384000 ns, average 77092266 ns, min
33000 ns, max 1024834000 ns).

If I downgrade to alsa-lib 1.0.9 rc3 everything works, with both gst-plugins
0.8.8 and gst-plugins 0.8.9. Also, I can still play mp3 files without problems.
I'm using alsa driver 1.0.9, who provides external kernel modules; my sound card
is a Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 EMU10k1, fully supported. I never experimented
audio problems before.

Please report a bug to the alsa team. This sounds like an issue or API change or
whatever on their side.
Comment 3 Giacomo Perale 2005-06-09 12:08:09 UTC
there is an open  bug in alsa-project bugzilla:

and this one reported to

I can confirm that everything works using "! alsasink device=hw:0" 
Comment 4 Ronald Bultje 2005-07-16 16:17:13 UTC
OK, marking as NOTGNOME since it's an ALSA bug... Let me know when they'd like
to know more details on what gst does, I can probably give some input there.
