nia I'd... rather not.
Can I ask why? What are the side affects of doing this?
pfr Increases the system-wide audio latency from 10 milliseconds to 1 second.
rvp i can find no other workaround for that choppy playback.
There is one: use the sunau driver instead of oss and everything looks OK--so far. This may even work for live streaming now, I think.

nia Yeah, I noticed that.
pad has other issues: eg. one has to stop the screen-capture first, and only then stop the background audio playback: ffmpeg will choke if you switch this order. Caveat emptor, etc...
rvp ffmpeg will choke if you switch this order.
Perhaps this was the problem I've been having. I still haven't successfully managed to capture pad audio when trying the methods mentioned in this thread. I will try again and be mindful of the specific order of things.
