Re: [GnomeMeeting-list] netmeeting vs gnomeeting: sound screwed up?


NetMeeting is very good at optimising the number of sound buffers that
should be used for a particular sound card, as Microsoft has done a good
job of integrating the application and the sound card drivers

Try increasing the number of sounds buffers used, as that is the normal
reason for differences in behaviour between Windows and Linux on the
same hardware. Or, you may even need to try a different sound driver
(change from OSS to Alsa, or reverse)
