View Full Version : MP3 Player error: music incessantly skips

Ok, I use the SC3.0 internal MP3 player (as HLamp won't work with Steam and HLWC is refusing to work with Steam HL and Winamp 5)

This is a problem I've been having for a long long while, ever since I got my GeForce4MX SE 440 card. Whenever I listen to music in the MP3 player, it plays okay, then it skips, then goes back to playing, and when these "skips" occur, songs get cut prematurely, therefore making my MP3 music enjoyment very shortened.

I have Steam Half-Life, 256MB RAM, I Play the game in OpenGL mode... I think that's it

What sound card have you got and have they got the latest drivers installed?

"SoundMAX Digital Audio", whatever that is. I'll see if it needs driver upgrades...

Yeah, not at all pretty. Personally I'd go for one of the Creative brand soundcards.

Is it truly a Sound Card problem? My MP3 player skips in steam but not in regular Half-Life. I assume it is a problem with the new version of Fmod.dll. I copied in an old version of fmod and tried it. I used the one from The Opera and lo and behold NO SKIPPING!

Need to figure out whats wrong with it guys. Until then i am going to use the one from The Opera

you've never have a proper sound card have you, comparing my sisters onboard sound (since she has a never motherboard) insetring a new soundblaster live (because the cow aint getting her mits on my audigy) most games had a definate performance boost when running EAX sound modes of no less than 20fps, onboard sound uses to much CPU processing power and I've never been able to get a good sound quality from them running anything like 4.1 and above, etc... blah blah blah moan groan etc...

hangon if you using the older fmod.dll and its fixed the problem then some odd is going on here, the never one is supposed to be more effecient, what version of direct x have you got and also what date is your sound card drivers and what motherboard make and model do you have, I'll see if I can't find anything out for you

the MB is a VIA VT8365 running XP Pro.
Direct x is at 9.0b (4.09.0000.0902).

sound card is a VIA AC97 running on 8/29/02
[EDIT: I just found one that was released last year (April23rd) ]
running version 5.10.0000.3622. Lets not forget This one is MICROSNOT PROVIDED.

it works fine with the older FMOD's but not the newer one.

Have you tried using the latest fmod.dll version (not the one bunndeled with svencoop), it fixed it for me.
