When playing audio CDs with mplayer, I always get a choppy playback. Playing audio from files, like MP3 (from any optical media, or other drives), etc. works fine. Watching video DVDs is also ok. Listening to uncompressed media that's on my hard drives, like WAV or CDR, works fine as well.
But when playing audio CDs like so:
It spins the CD, plays for a few seconds until the buffer runs out, then it spins the CD again, fills the buffer and the whole procedure repeats. I tried
-nocache, that didn't help.
How do I make mplayer keep a constant buffer fill, i.e. read the CD continuously?
