Details

When playing mp3 files, mplayer gives a note about the mpg123 codec not being available, and uses the ffmp3float codec instead. This produces clicks in most mp3 files (at specific times, related to the audio being decoded -- i.e. not a buffer/cache/etc issue).

A simple fix for users is to add afm=mp3lib to ~/.mplayer/config


mplayer display:
==========================================================================
Requested audio codec family [mpg123] (afm=mpg123) not available.
Enable it at compilation.
Opening audio decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg/libavcodec audio decoders
AUDIO: 44100 Hz, 2 ch, floatle, 224.0 kbit/7.94% (ratio: 28000->352800)
Selected audio codec: [ffmp3float] afm: ffmpeg (FFmpeg MPEG layer-3 audio)
==========================================================================
This task depends upon

Actually a better fix to add to ~/.mplayer/config might be the following line (including the trailing comma):

ac=-ffmp3float,

i'm going to add mpg123 support. i see that mp3lib is marked as buggy and mpg123 as working

Well, even ffmpeg's non-float decoder works fine, it's just not what gets chosen as a default.
