I posted a bug on the bugtracker about this before. When 12.1 was released, it broke external audio. XBMC refuses to release it when it is in WASAPI mode. If there's a sound playing, such as gui sounds, or music, the last few miliseconds just loops until the external player is closed and control is returned to xbmc at which point it would stop. With the directsound, it loops for a few seconds and then is released. I posted the bug, there were changes made, but no one ever tested them and my bug was marked as fixed. I pointed out that it was not fixed once I tested the latest nightly, and they asked me to post another log, which I did, but it was ignored since it was already closed.

Thus, I went back to 12.0. The problem is present in gotham as well. I just downloaded the latest Frodo test build and the problem is worse. The sound stays stuck even after closing the external and xbmc crashes with wasapi. With directsound, it released control after a few seconds. Do you want me to open a new bugfix request and reference the old one?

http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/14211 reopened. If it has actually gotten worse in pre12.2 then it might be useful to also post a debug from that (note the date of the pre12.2 build, too).

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

That would be awesome, thank you very much.

Straight from git via zip https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/archive/Frodo.zip because thats the way git provides it or by changing .zip to .tar.gz (didnt know that works https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/archive/Frodo.tar.gz

Ubuntu PPA: https://launchpad.net/~wsnipex/+archive/xbmc-prestable

mini howto:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-prestable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

This assumes your are using Frodo stable from our stable PPA. If you run unstable or nightlies, I'm just going to assume you know how to downgrade to a lower package version.

An ebuild for gentoo users is available at http://jesshaas.com/software/xbmc/xbmc-12.9999.ebuild
If you don't know what to do with this see http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Overlay#A...al_Overlay or the portage/layman docs. This ebuild will download and build the current version of the Frodo branch at the time it is emerged.

Incomplete bug reports will be ignored. We don't know what to look for in your log because you didn't say what went wrong, you didn't say if this was an issue for v12.1, and we don't know the steps to recreate it.
