White noise in VLC
VLC is working great when playing audio files alone but is giving me issues when running DVDs.
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.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
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.
