[Ekiga-list] Alsa Weirdness

Damien, I don't know whether this should be directed yo you or not. The
problem I'm having is an annoyance with ALSA

I can set Ekiga to use the default audio devices EXCEPT for the output
device. I have to use the sound card directly. If I try to use the
default for the output device, ALSA is very distorted and the jitter
buffer goes berserk.

I do have the /etc/asound.conf file setup (actually copied and pasted
form The getting ALSA to work with several applications at once (
http://wiki.ekiga.org/index.php/Getting_several_applications_using_the_sound_card_at_the_same_time_%3F) website.

I've tried to figure out how to fine tune ALSA to stop this problem, but
I really don't understand how ALSA works to be able to change anything
If it is something that may be easy to resolve, then any help will be
appreciated. If not, Ekiga runs fine with the way I have it set, but it
does cause problems with some other audio programs.

Thanks in Advance,
