what frequencies do your soundcard support? What frequency is the sound of
your file? Are there any messages about resampling in then messages window?
If your could provid this info it whould help us investigating.

This have been fixed in cvs.

Command line options and settings in the preferences window are the very
same thing. I don't have much to do with the osx port of vlc, but this looks

0.5.0, or perhaps in 0.5.1.
