i have an acer800laptop...it has an intel sound chip (users the
snd-intel8x0 alsa module).
i use from-cvs mplayer, with "-ao alsa".
before the alsa1x/alsa9 unification (when i used "alsa1x") everything went fine.
but now, with the unified 'alsa' driver,
i sometimes get noises into the video playback...
until now i could not reproduce them easily, but now i can :)
on my laptop i can adjust the brightness of the screen with
spec-laptop-key+left-arrow and spec-laptop-key+right-arrow.
when using the cvs-current mplayer, when a video is played, and i play
with the brightness, i get a clicking sound all the time while the
brightness controlling keys are used.
it does not happen with the 'alsa1x' version.
it does not happen if i load oss emulation and use -ao oss
it does not happen with xine using alsa
it does not happen with totem using the gstreamer backend which uses
