Sorry, I meant, the format does not work properly in ekiga. I have to
take the default.

If I remove the comment sign from

pcm.playback {
       type plug
       slave {
               pcm "output_raw"
#               format S16_LE
#               channels 2
#               rate 48000

then Ekiga prints a lot of ALSA warnings, while other applications
(aplay and kaffeine) generate a file in the required format.
The problem is that I can play the files in ekiga via

aplay -f S16_LE -r8000 -c 2 XXXX.raw

but I had to try various settings until I found the right "rate" and
"channels", otherwise the sound is too fast, too slow, or just bad.
But other than that, it works fine.
