Google Chrome Choppy YouTube Audio
After upgrading Chrome last night from 24.0.1312.57 to 26.0.1410.63, compiling using a Slackbuild script to make the package, I was getting choppy audio on all YouTube videos I tested.
The best description I can offer is a cross between clicking and stuttering. The same videos worked fine with Firefox 17.01. No idea what version of Flash was involved with either test.
Downgraded and all is OK. A cursory search turned up nothing relevant. Any suggestions on things to investigate?

just ran the update last night on my mint 14 box. haven't tested flash based video with it yet. i usually hop between firefox and chrome -- depending on which browser's flash pisses me off least that day.
i'll check. slack is beyond me -- but at least i can see if i exhibit the same errors.

You have to upgrade to 27 or use "--audio-buffer-size=2048" as a command option.
This was a change specifically targeting audio latency with pulse audio in an attempt to make it better for pulse audio users which apparently suffer from latency. Or something like that.--

That seems to be the bug. Thanks.
Using the audio-buffer switch fixed the clicking. There are still minor issues with video but I haven't tested enough to know if they are browser related.
I appreciate the help.
