Good day all,
Our private land line is hooked up with VoipBuster which works very well at
our end. (Our DECT phone is connected to a FrizBox 7170A modem having a few
However, when I'm using Jitsi using our VoipBuster account to call a landline
or a mobile phone, the sound is horrible. It squeaks, cracks, drops sound,
making it totally useless. I've tried this from home and from our friends
house (to rule out a VoipBuster dependency)
I'm on openSUSE 12.2 x64 and I'm using a analog, bi-wire Logitech head set.
I've used up quit some evenings to figure out where the problem is, but I
can't get my fingers behind it. So I'd like to call the collective wisdom here.
What I've done so far + symptoms:
1. I have no other sound related problems, everything sounds great (games,
notices, video, etc)
2. I also have the latest Linux Skype installed on my PC and the sound is perfect.
3. I've booted my PC with the latest LiveCD version of Ubuntu (32 bits), and
than the sound is perfect too. Including Jitsi over VoipBuster (both landlines
4. I also had Jitsi sound problems on openSUSE 12.1 x64
5. I've removed PulseAudio without any effect.
6. I've created a new user for this with clean settings to rule out crappy KDE
config from the 12.1 upgrade.
7. Soundcard is YasT auto configured (HDA Intel ALC 889A)
I've researched most of Googles relevant hits, but couldn't find the final
clue. Since Jitsi sounds great on Ubuntu I expect it to be a problem with
openSUSE, but I can't make it stick.
Any pointers greatly appreciated.
For $10 a mosquito net + distribution + education + monitoring + evaluation.
