    I am a newbie to Linux n installed ubuntu 6.06 recently...

    After installin various softwares(for playing music)...wen I finally played my MP3 music...I was highly dissapointed as it wasn't upto the mark....the sound was cracking....I tried different softwares but the result was same...

    Then I tried the same in WMP10 and RealPlayer(in WinXP SP2)....n the sound was as usual....flawless....

    Maybe this got to do something with drivers or so...Is there some way to rectify this problem?

    Here is what I use for a flawless sound and video.

    Player - Amarok for Music, Xine for Videos.
    Music - Engine - Xine
    Codecs:
    gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
    gstreamer0.10-gl gstreamer0.10-plugins-base
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse
    libxine-extracodecs

    I use Amarok with Xine as the Engine.
    In Amarok, go to Settings > Configure Amarok > Engine tab > Select Xine from the engine list.

    Yep, thats true but you need to install the amarok-xine package for that. You can have other engines as well :)

    Just to prep yourself for any unknown/rare format i suggest you get VLC player for linux.
    Go to the console and key in:
    Code:
    % sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-esd
    just ensure the universe mirror is enabled first.
