Hi, I got some weird issues with FMOD under Linux. The problem comes when trying to stream a file, the first time it does it, works out fine, closing the program, opening it again and trying to stream the same file cause stuttering but only with the first “chunk” of sound. It’s like it can’t load the next piece of sound into memory so it just keeps playing the buffer again and again.

When using the sample program provided with FMOD for streamming I noticed that when the stream ends the memory percentage indicator keeps on changing as if it was still streamming.

And when closing the program it causes a ‘segmentation fault’.

I have an Ubuntu 5.10 desktop and a Mandrake 9 laptop, and it happens on both (one is using gnome and the other one kde).

Any clue on what’s going on?

That’s a known issue with miniFMOD 1.6 under Linux. It doesn’t properly initialize OSS. Are you sure you are not using miniFMOD instead of FMOD?

Nop, I’m using FMOD 3.75. :(

Should I try using a previous version? Or is there an alternative to using OSS?

Hi, thanks for replying. :)

I tested the example for playstream that comes with FMOD EX and it works great, I actually tested it for a long time, even after the example of FMOD 3.75 had crashed, and it worked really good.

So yea, there is a difference between the two. Does that mean that I have to change my code to the EX version? Or is there a way I can fix the code I already have written?
