Sounds in my applications are played in super speed and are crackling horribly. In Spotify, the songs are actually playing at around 3x speed. I have Googled this quite a bit and all I can come up with is a bug report from January 2012 which is marked as closed.
I have tested Spotify and Hearthstone using PlayOnLinux with Wine versions 1.5.0, 1.6, 1.6.0, 1.7.0, 1.7.8 as well as the system Wine which is version 1.4.1. They all have the exact same terrible crackling sound issue. This leads me to assume that this is not a bug with Wine.
The steps to reproduce from the bug report:
Steps to Reproduce: 1. winecfg 2. go to Audio tab 3. Test Sound Actual results: crackling sounds produced Expected results: normal output
Are also producing crackling noises for me. While doing it, winecfg printed the following to the terminal:
p11-kit: couldn't load module: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/p11-kit-trust.so: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/p11-kit-trust.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory err:ole:CoInitializeEx Attempt to change threading model of this apartment from multi-threaded to apartment threaded ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred ALSA lib pcm.c:7843:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
(The first line showed up as I opened winecfg, the last 5 showed up when I clicked Test Sound)
Any clues what could be wrong? Let me know if I can provide any more information.
