4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am running Vmware Workstation 7.1 on Ubuntu 10.10. I have 10.6.8 installed any everything is working GREAT! Expect, the sound. It skips. Does anyone have any tips? I have tried searching and have not been able to find anything.

Thanks!

I assume you installed the audio driver from here:

 

https://sourceforge.net/projects/vmsvga2/files/Audio

 

Edit your .vmx file and insert this at the bottom:

 

pciSound.DAC2InterruptsPerSec = "256"
pciSound.playBuffer = "64"

 

Instead of 256, you can try other values as well (512, 1024).

 

You Rock! Thanks man!! It works A LOT better!!. Still a skip or too. Is it possible to change the playBuffer too?

 

Also, is there a way to get videos to play?

 

Thank you so much for your help!

 

I'm repling again to just say THANK YOU!

Is it possible to change the playBuffer too?

Yes. Larger values should result in less skips, but will increase latency. Meaning that the more you increase the playBuffer value, the more the sound will lag behind (for example you click on something that produces a sound, but the sound starts playing 1 second later.)

 

Also, is there a way to get videos to play?

No idea. The SVGA II thread had something to say about acceleration, but I never tried it (I only use OS X for development, not for watching videos.)
