xchat cannot play .ogg files?

Anyone else getting this? It’s very strange that it can play .wav files but not .ogg.

This is a clean install of 11.2 64bit as of yesterday, all other sound works well.

When it tries to play a .ogg it sounds like raw data is being catted to /dev/audio or something, quite awful.

Sure codecs are there, i.e. ogg-theora IIRC ?

Dunno, but I just installed ogm-tools and theora-tools (or something like that) which switched me automatically to the pm version of libtheora, so I’ll see how that goes.


No, that didn’t fix it, it still plays data.
