Problem with Sound and Flash Player
1 1

Question

hello, I'm DarkMarkus88.

 

My system contains:

Motherboard: ASUS M4A79XTD EVO (especially the VT1708s onboard sound.)

Processor:      AMD Phenom II X6 - 1100T

RAM:              8 GB of Corsair 1333 mhz RAM.

SSD:               OCZ Vertex 2 (60 GB)

Distro:             Niresh12495's 10.9 Mavericks

SMBIOS:        MacPro5,1

 

Well i pretty much got the distro and install working, with the exception of 2 things.

 

1: The sound kext (VoodooHDA.kext version 2.8.4) recognizes my sound card and does playback. But crackles/stutters/delays at playback. Tried different kexts, previous voodoos, specials made for VT1708s. All didnt work.

 

Here's my IORegistryExplorer screen:

Can anyone point me in the direction of what I can do about it? Or maybe knows a solution?

Even with a bluetooth box hooked on it, it still crackles/stutters/delays. Bit less, but the problem remains.

I used different programs, Spotify, tried Youtube, VLC with MP3 and MKV's.

 

2: The Adobe Flash Player keeps freezing the whole computer.

Whenever I visit a site which has Flash-content on it (Youtube ofcourse, but also simple Flash Objects) it just freezes and I need to reboot.

I tried version 12 and 13 of Adobe Flash Player without result.

 

Any thoughts on this?

Download SystemInfo.app, run it. Post your device id and vendor id for sound card.

 

I will upload a customised VooDooHDA.kext for your sound card and then those crackles will may go.

Here is your VooDooHDA :

 

http://kopasite.net/up/0/VoodooHDA.kext.zip

 

Uncompress it and install using "Kext Wizard"

 

But, before installing it, uninstall/remove AppleHDA from /System/Library/Extensions

 

and uninstall/Remove previous VooDooHDA from /System/Library/Extensions and VooDooHDA pref pane.

 

If it works, report back and save a copy of it for your future Hackintosh for your system.

Hmm, do you have VooDoo pref Pane in System Preferences ?

 

If it is then open it and slide iGain to 0. It a reason too.

 

For flash try chrome, as it has inbuilt flash support.

No, when I installed your voodoo kext, i didnt get the VoodooPrefPane,

But I can modify that in the kext itself can I?

 

And i will try Chrome.

I did it already.

 

Looking at your picture again, why its so red?

 

Can you give me a picture of your Graphics/Display property?

 

For this you need to go About This Mac->More Info->System Report->Graphics/Display

Well I've made a screenshot, and its still skippy.

The graphics shows that it can see 2 monitors, but when I put on the second monitor (tv) its not getting any signal.

Any idea why?

I dont understand your language, and only I got is you have Radeon 6850 HD 1 GB graphics :(

 

I asked why its red all over?

 

Your Desktop is also red? Or there is a system wide colour problem?

Well, no, my desktop is just normal colours. So, its only the screenshot, maybe even the screenshot program.

 

What else do you wanna know, do you need a translation? 

I know Dutch is hard language.

 

What do you wanna have translated?

 

And btw, Chrome solves the Flash problem.

So I switched from Firefox to Chrome :)

I wanted to know the locaion of your Graphic card (PCI 0 or 1).

Since Chrome solved the issue with flash, now we can move to sound or if you tey have flash issue then post ;)

 

You may try soundflower (uploaded in download section) for sound delaying. It works perfect except it may make your volume level 0, but it can be solved going into system Audio Devices (not system preferences).

 

And tip for screenshot : You dont need any extra software for screen shot ;).

command+shift+3 = Monitor screenshot

command+shift+4 = Point2Point screenshot

During boot it says in slot 1. So... And for sound delay. I will try it.

 

Edit: 

 

I tried Soundflower, but the problem remains.

Still crackling and stuttering.

Booting time information is what we told the OSX where is your Graphic Card, but in actual it can be at different slot and thus causes problem with Graphics.

 

But I assume you dont have flash problem right now.

 

Btw, did you send audio output to SoundFlower first and then from SF to speakers? This is the way to install SoundFlower.

 

And I will also dig a bit more, till try and wait for others reply.

Ok, my bad. I didnt send it to Soundflower. When I get home this afternoon, I will try it with the new settings.

 

Thanks, I will let you know if it worked.

When I set the buffers to 2048 it did play some smooth (about 2 seconds) and then reverted back to cracking and stuttering.

 

As for the rest, no luck :(

What do you need to see exactly....?

I tried some youtube videos but mostly they are for recording audio...

 

Note:

When I use my Bluetooth Box (UE Mobile Boombox) it plays the sound with a pause every 2 seconds (very small pause, few milliseconds maybe). Maybe its useful.

Did you try 64 Channel too?

 

Give it a go, and also play with buffer sizes.

 

SF had to work if there not problem in hardware.

Yes, I did. Well there is definitely no problem with my audio hardware. Because when I boot Windows 8.1, everything works just fine.

Maybe a clean install of Niresh would help, another kernel maybe?

Or may be Patched DSDT+AppleHDA. Google, if there is any DSDT for your MoBo.
