Audio quality issues with mpd

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have been using mpd for a long time now and absolutely love it. However, I recently added a few video files to the mpd database. Now I understand mpd won't play the video files, I don't want it to. But when mpd plays the audio track of the video file, there is a lot of static noise in the output. My other audio files work perfectly with mpd. As do these video files in other players like mplayer and vlc. This leads me to conclude that the audio track on these videos is not of bad quality. There is something wrong in the way mpd handles them. Can anyone suggest what might be wrong and how (HowTos)
