Re: Problems with OSS in Haiku OS

Well, this is quite remarkable but VLC 0.8.6 has now started playing .mp3 files perfectly. Other than opening and closing Media Preferences a few times, I really do not believe that I did anything at all, either purposely, nor, I'm pretty sure, inadvertently. In any event, yes, there is an Audio Mix...

Re: Problems with OSS in Haiku OS

Thanks again for your reply and the link. Well, there already is a file called opensound.media_addon (of 127 kB) in the directory /boot/system/add-ons/media which I presume (but don't know for sure) that what you are proposing is already enabled. Yet, neither VLC 0.8.6 nor the native Media Player pr...

Re: Problems with OSS in Haiku OS

Thank you for your reply. I'm not aware of the "translator driver of sorts" that you mention but I will enquire in Haiku circles. However, in the meantime, I have made some progress. OSSPLAY works fine for me as long as I direct it away from /dev/dsp, which doesn't exist, to /dev/oss/oss_h...

Problems with OSS in Haiku OS

I'm running Haiku R1A2 OS on a Dell E520 which has an Intel 82801H (ICH8) soundcard. Unfortunately the hda driver for Haiku, which should be appropriate for this card, is buggy so it didn't work for me. However, I was able to get a Haiku version of OSS to work perfectly by disabling both the pre-ins...

Some more specific hints: export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=artsc -> add this to /etc/profile. SDL using applications will now output to arts. (may require restart). mplayer -ao arts -> make mplayer use arts . Add "ao=arts" to ~/.mplayer/config to make this permament. xine -A arts -> same for xine. ...

Thank you for that information. I'm almost ready to admit defeat here as it seems to be turning into a marathon just to get music to play on FreeBSD. :( Maybe I'd be better off just getting a new sound card that was more compatible with FBSD. :cry: Nevertheless, perhaps you might be able to point me...

Help me configure OSS in FreeBSD

I've just recently started using FreeBSD 7.0 on my Dell Desktop 4550. The sound card is a Creative Labs Sound Blaster emu10k1x. It seems that the FreeBSD drivers do not support this card and I have, therefore, installed OSS (from ports audio/oss). This allows me to load the module emu10k1x.ko and no...
