You should check the internal card with ALSA only to see if the issues
are related to PulseAudio at all - this is anyway not the issue here, i
was referring only to the issues that were visible only with
PulseAudio+Jitsi (and not with ALSA+Jitsi):
On all computers i tried, Jitsi+PulseAudio 0.9.x exhibited unstable
behaviour - mostly the CPU usage went up to 100% (all CPUs were dual
core) and the sound quality went down (sever crackling). Sometimes only
the CPU hogging happened, but mostly both. Few calls were without these
problems and no config modifications in PulseAudios client.conf or
This happened with Ubuntus 9.04 and up, Debian Testing - Squeeze testing
up to Wheezy until PulseAudio 1.04 and then 1.1 appeared -
since then no issues. Note that i always used the latest testing build
of Jitsi, and the first build i tested recently with PulseAudio 1.x
installed was 3805 or 6 i think.
Note that none of the computers i used had any issues with their
soundcards with Jitsi with ALSA (or PulseAudio with other programs).

I have pulseaudio 1.04 running in xfce 4.8 and have lots of issues
with my internal soundcard - not jitsi related. My external
usb-soundcard works nicely with jitsi. Will try the update to 1.1 and
new kernel 3.1 and report back.

Unlike the 0.9 series PulseAudio, the 1.04 and 1.1 versions from the
Debian repos worked well for me (3 days of testing, no problems whatsoever).
Tested on 2 machines, one desktop and one laptop. On the laptop i tested
it also with bluetooth handsfree and it worked with no issues. Both
machines had Debian Testing (currently Wheezy) 32-bit installed with the
3.1-pae kernel with Xfce 4.8.
If anyone else could test this, please do, it is quite important because
PulseAudio is the default for some high profile distros like Ubuntu.
O zi buna,
