Description olivier.perret 2016-11-29 21:24:43 UTC
The title should be self-explanatory. When an mpv client exist and any other client (e.g. firefox, cmus or another mpv instance) is playing, seeking in the mpv client will cause the stream from the other client to be played at roughly 1.5x the speed (until I stop seeking).

I have some custom configuration which is the following (it is relevant because I cannot reproduce without the config) :


default-sample-channels = 4
default-channel-map = front-left,front-right,rear-left,rear-right


load-module module-remap-sink sink_name=Speakers remix=no master=alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1f.3.analog-surround-40 channels=2 master_channel_map=front-left,front-right channel_map=front-left,front-right
load-module module-remap-sink sink_name=Headphones remix=no master=alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1f.3.analog-surround-40 channels=2 master_channel_map=rear-left,rear-right channel_map=front-left,front-right

All clients are playing on the "Headphones" sink.
