     132That ''Windows'' oddity can affect ''FFplay'', just `set SDL_AUDIODRIVER=directsound` in the environment of the shell, i.e., a '''`cmd.exe`''' window on your desktop. Maybe `setx SDL_AUDIODRIVER=directsound` in the environment of the current user (HKCU) or local machine (HKLM), effective for all command line windows after a reboot, or (untested) after logging off + in again, or (untested) after killing + restarting ''explorer''.
