Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-mplayer

sao3@sao3-laptop:~$ dpkg --list | grep mplayer
ii gnome-mplayer 0.7.0-1ubuntu1 A simple GUI for MPlayer
ii mplayer 2:1.0~rc2-0ubuntu17 The Ultimate Movie Player For Linux

I am using intrepid, and I face this bug when:

1. open a movie with GNOME Mplayer
2. click the volume icon on the right side of the bottom bar.
3. adjust volume.

The movie stops immediately.

And on another laptop of my friend, when I continue moving the volume control, the movie plays without soon as I stop moving it, play stops.

I've reported a bug for another bug when control volume in gnome-mplayer(, but I think they are not the same bug, because this bug appears in full-screen mode as well as in window mode.

Can you explain with more details how this happens? Does it happen for all movies or a particular one? I never experienced anything similar to this, so, the more you can explain about this issue the better.

Well, for all movies I tested this happens, most of them are avi and mpg.

some exceptions occurs when playing wmv, it does not stop, but freezes for several seconds. I noticed as soon as I adjust volume, the CPU consumption started to be 100% and several seconds later the movie started again, and CPU rate drops.

Comfirmed, but seems a problem of mplayer.

Appears to be a pulse audio bug in mplayer. I believe mplayer in SVN from about Mar 2009 works around this.
