I built a new workstation with an Asus P5Q Pro motherboard, using the onboard sound for a soundcard. It is running Windows XP-64bit.
It works fine except when I try to open this WMV stream: http://www.bloomberg.com/streams/video/LiveBTV200.asxx (SFW: Its a business news stream)
The sound is very distorted (kind of pixelated with an echo).
I have taken the following steps to fix/debug this problem:
- Tried various media players: VLC, Windows Media player etc... they all play it with the same distorted sound.
- Tried upgrading to the newest driver and downgrading to older driver.
- Tried opening other wmv streams and media files... they all play fine.
Ruled out a network issue by using my laptop on the same network to open the stream.
Any ideas what could be causing this problem?
