White noise in VLC
Everything works and looks great except the sound, (I even have DVD menus just like watching from a DVD player to television!) but all I get is white noise when a DVD is playing. I have edited the preferences to use ALSA and have "Default" chosen as the Alsa device name. I've fiddled with the settings every way I know how but the white noise remains. This same DVD works fine with Mplayer. Yes, I could just watch from Mplayer, but would also like to get VLC playing DVDs properly as well.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
I know you run Crux Dapper. But the only thing I could find via google was in the Arch wiki.
If you are having audio problems with the audio playback of DVDs in VLC, uninstall VLC and install the vlc-nightly package from the AUR, and set the audio output method to Pulseaudio.
Good luck with it.

Personally, I don't use VLC for DVD playback. My preference is for Kaffeine (I use KDE mostly), though I also use mplayer on my Ubuntu laptops for DVD playback - never a problem with audio. What audio driver are you using? Pulse is not recommended (IMO) - better to use ALSA I think.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
Thanks rokytnji and Rubberman. I'm using Alsa but can't even get close to solving this. The main reason I wanted VLC was because it was letting me use DVD menus and at one time *player had issues with DVD menu navigation. I've compiled a newer version of mplayer (which has dvdnav enabled by default) so now have DVD navigation in SMplayer.
