G'day Jeremy

I am not sure if anyone replied to this email, but I found under Linux
(especially Fedora), was if I use ALSA rather than OSS as the Audio
Device under rat, I would have choppy/poor audio.

To check this setting, simply click on the options button within rat,
then Category -> Audio and check the Audio Device.

Anyway, I just though I would mention this and hope it assists you with
your problems.

Subject: [AG-TECH] Choppy audio

I remember seeing this awhile back concerning choppy audio within RAT.
We've had our first problems with it this morning. When connecting
with a client in Chicago, they said that my audio was very choppy, but
still understandable. I then had a second user connect from their home
(cable modem) and they too said my audio with choppy. I connected a
fourth machine locally in my office (same campus subnet) and could not
reproduce the choppiness. My audio sounded perfect on this computer.

We also tried different codecs, noticeably GSM in case there were
bandwidth limitations and nope, same choppy audio on their end.

All clients were either 3.0.2 or 3.1beta2 with RAT 4.4.40, 3 Slackware
and 1 OS X machine.

Any ideas?
