           Summary: sound playback buggy with ogg files
           Product: kfile-plugins
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: ogg
        AssignedTo: kde-multimedia kde org
        ReportedBy: achiestdragon gmail com

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

originaly thought this bug was dew to kalarm 
but further investigation leads me to 1 of 2 possible reasons 

(original bug report to kalarm 

but it affects other applications using these sounds files 
for there notifications  

i went through the included kde sample ogg files that
are included for system notification sounds 
the .wav files play normaly 
about 50% of the ogg files play and 50% eather give no sound or shortend snippits of the sound 

kde 3.5 rc1
suse 9.3

reason 1 is a bug in the ogg player 
reason 2 is that 50% of the ogg files included in the 
3.5rc1 distribution are corrupt 

im just about to try and find a copy of the old ogg files 
included with kde3.4.3  to see if it is the later 
but have no idea if there have been any changes to the player that may cause this 

hopes i found the right application for the bug this time :)
